Okay, yeah, I know. It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. Life keeps interferring with what I need to get done.
I now have a pretty good grasp on the new novel. Still no title yet, but the characters come out to play more easily.
I have a few pages of notes for the new novella. No title there yet either, but the characters desperately want to come out and play.
Sapphires & Toadstones has been recorded and is in the final editing stages for the upcoming Wicked Women Writers contest from Horror Addicts. That should be sent in soon, provided the Technology Gods quit screwing with me. I swear, I am their center of attention right now. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least for this post to either A) not show up or B) show up with words I did not write.
A new short story called Down That Road . . . is coming together, and a few previously written short stories have finally agreed to let themselves be edited. Much easier to do when the characters cooperate.
Stories contained in the Live and Let Undead anthology from Library of the Living Dead Press are coming along in their second round of edits, and stories for The Wickeds anthology from Horror Addicts are coming along in their first round of edits. Those should be sent back to the respective authors in the next few weeks.
And Mr. Stabby may have a new playmate. For those of you unfamiliar with Mr. Stabby, he is an old knife I rescued from Goodwill after unkind people rudely disposed of him. He has a carbon steel blade and a heavy hickory wood handle. In his previous life, Mr. Stabby was used for breaking down meat carcasses. And when I say carcasses, I mean like half a cow. Now, he is much happier in his new role as my enforcer. Anyway, Mr. Stabby has been anxious to meet the Evil Little Jester, a friend of fellow author Charles Day. We will see how that goes.
And finally, I have a spot on Steve Lockely’s blog scheduled for July 23rd as a guest blogger. What possessed him to open it up to me and several fellow writers and editors , I don’t know. But, I’m taking advantage of it. Look for the link as we get closer to the day.
