Just a quick update post here – I’m nicely entrenched in my copy edits for  A Trace of Moonlight and should have those back to the editor next week. It’s getting rather surreal, honestly – I’m almost done. After the first-pass-pages, that’s it. My contract will be over and then it’s on to trying to sell the next big thing. Whatever that is.

In the meantime – this week is all about self-publishing over at Word Whores, so I’ve got a few things to mention there today, but definitely check out some of the other posts – there’s some really great information about it and it’s worth seeing the experiences of other writers.

I willed it to open, the balloon effect softer, the magic seeming to slip through my hands as I tried to focus where I wanted to go. “Do you have it?” Ion grunted, worrying at the arrow shaft in his leg. “He can’t hold them off for much longer.” “It’s not the fucking TARDIS ,” I snapped, blinking against the power. *** Copy edits for A Sliver of Shadow came in today – it’s a bit bittersweet, actually. On one hand, the book is that much closer to coming out and that is exciting. On the other, there’s a little bit of dread involved. Some of the copyedits are obvious and easy – typos or the fact that my characters seem to “snort” a lot. *snip snip* and we’re all done. Others require a little more thought and sometimes… Read more
