RAMPANT is done! Oh my! I can hardly believe it. I’ve got one last proof to do and edits and tweaks, but otherwise it will be off my desk soon. Then comes the nervous wait for my editor’s feedback. My good pal Portia Da Costa has been an angel and is reading it for me. She's already given me some amazing feedback, comments that put a stupid happy grin on my face. There’s hope! Very encouraging from someone as widely published and prolific as Portia.
RAMPANT has been an incredible book to write. I’ve loved the story and the characters. I’ve learnt so much and pushed myself hard, challenging myself to become a stronger writer in every way. This was a big jump for me. I’ll be on hooks until I hear back from the editor, but Portia's comments have at least made me hopeful that it’s not a big pile of cr@p. LOL!
In between times I've also made a couple of new short story sales. Rachel Kramer Bussel has signed my short "The Lunch Break" for her forthcoming Cleis Press anthology, DO NOT DISTURB, Hotel Sex Stories. Yay! I've also sold a slightly longer short story to Total-E-Bound. That one is called "Running Wild" and it will be coming out as a Lust Bite in February.
So what's up for me next, work wise? Well, um, I have to clean the house. LOL! Apart from the usual post-book "my house looks like a bomb has hit it" realisation, I have a busy writing time ahead. I have a couple of shorts to finish and sub, and then I'll be working on a new partial. December will be busy, but not so much intensely working on one project. It'll make a nice change before I’m back into that next year. Can't believe 2009 is so close!
Thanks to those visitors who kept calling round here even while I’ve not been a regular poster. I promise it will get better now. I appreciate your visits! I’m also thinking of joining Twitter. It seems to be a fun way to update from time to time.
Okay folks, if you’re celebrating Thanksgiving – have a superb day!
