Going Breathless

I received the official acceptance on VN2 and it will be published by Breathless Press. :) Very excited.

Decisions, decisions

While I wait on the final decision on VN2, I've been sorting out which of my three current unfinished projects to devote the bulk of my time to. Right now, it looks as if I'm going to run with Firebase October, which is my prequel to Lost and Found. This is Mark's story, before he lost Ryan, before he became angry and bitter and an alcoholic. And since I'm setting this in Vietnam, 1968, it's perfect for me. This is what I know.

Ideally, I'd love to have it done midsummer and over to my new editor at Lyrical, but we'll see.

Come on over to the dark side

I opened a Facebook account this weekend. God help us all. I'm so technically challenged it's not even funny. Not only that, but I view Facebook as this enormous black hole of doom that should be banned.

But sweet christ, I'm trying to get my name out there.

I'm still not touching Twitter under any circumstances. I refuse to have my life lojacked.

So look me up at Facebook. Not that I've posted anything- I haven't figured out how to do that yet. (sigh)

Moving it forward

Finally got VN2 up to submission grade thanks mostly to my friend who is always there to help me out. So I turned it into my editor who is delighted to finally have her hands on it We'll see if the delight holds out. Oy.

Up on my plate to work on now- Firebase October and Melody Blue. Firebase October will go to Lyrical Press when I get that one done. I've also got Then and Now to start banging on again.

Today, I'm taking a break from everything. I just want to catch my breath.

There was an article in USA Today (dated Feb 9th, 2011) that was really interesting, about self publishing and how it's taken off with the popularity of eReaders like Kindles and Nooks. It's a great article- Authors catch fire with self-published e-books.
