Over Forty And Loving It


In a Lull

Because, you know, that's how freelancing is.

In the lull, I'm busy networking my heinie off, trying to get NN to fly like a bird. It's hard work, don't let anyone tell you different. From everything I've read, it's just as much work as if you have a publishing house behind you, only they have better distribution channels. I think the best advice I've seen is to release your baby, then start working on the next project. Oh, and networking the live-long day.

So, to that end, I'm plastered all over the place.

I have been asked to contribute a short story to author Joshua Guess's March release of "Living With the Dead - Year 0ne" and I'm really exited for that. The outline is already done.

I'm also working on a short story called "Jack and the Dollhouse", although it's slow going.

"Athena's Promise" is in formatting hell. I'm trying out Scrivener for the PC so I can keep better track of where I am and where I need to go. I really hope to finish that off by April. Pallas will go the traditional route, so I need to think about agents and publishers. I may go with a small press, since daylight's burning and I don't want to be dead before it gets published, and I don't trust the climate with big houses right now. I know enough to know I'm not signing over all my e-rights, for one -- and the way things are, even if AP was picked up immediately (puh-leeze, I have a better chance of being struck by lightning and I know it) it would be at LEAST 2012 if not longer before it was released.

But, I don't have to make that decision yet. I have to finish the bitch, first. I know, I know. I'm sick of hearing about it too, believe me. *sigh*


It is bitterly cold, like in the ZERO range, and we just got socked by another big snowstorm with more on the way today and again Monday. Jeezum fecking cheeto, I haven't seen this much snow since I left New York, and my back HATES it. It might be time to start considering a slightly more temperate climate. Not this year, and maybe not next...but eventually.


Now, I'm actually going to relax and do something other than hunch over the keyboard. I'm hooked on "Gold Rush - Alaska" and I have some knitting to do.

Can you stand the excitement? Neither can I. Heh.
