First: As you can probably tell from the picture I’m using, the official release date of the Snowbunny Anthology has been announced as August 29th! It make take a day or more to be visible for purchase, but I’ll post links once it is officially buyable. I’ve read the stories and they are an eclectic collection: a bit of strange, a bit of funny, and a bit of sweet. I am so proud to be among the authors chosen.
Second: I just got my first set of comments back from my editor on Broods 0f Fenrir. She had a lot to say about it. I won’t go into too much detail, but she offered some wonderful input on so many things. Most importantly, she said the story itself was good. Like any insecure artist, I harbor doubts that everything I create is rubbish, so hearing that from her really helped. There’s still some work to be done. She made suggestions I’ve been mulling over for the last couple of days. I’m going to add one scene and significantly change another, then there will be a few things I have to tweak based on those major changes. If you are looking for an editor, I can not recommend Lynn O’Dell of Red Adept Reviews highly enough. She’s just fantastic to work with.
Third: I’m going on vacation for the first two weeks of September. I will not be blogging or online much, but I will be taking a bajillion pictures, so expect to see those upon my return. I have a few posts scheduled to go up during that time and a couple of giveaways that BK Walker over at The Virtual Book Tour Cafe will be running for me, but don’t panic if you don’t see me around my usual haunts.
Fourth: For any authors looking to flex your micro fiction muscles, check out Glitterlady’s Tuesday Tales. She provides a picture and a word and you write a 100 word story. She hosts different judges each week. I participated for the first time this week and got an honorable mention for my story which I affectionately call Honeysuckle Hussy.
Fifth: You, my lovely reader, are awesome. I just wanted you to know.
Sixth: The Romancing Your Dark Side Book Tour that I am serving as a host for next month has started. Every stop along the way has giveaways for you to win books and swag, so go check it out and have fun!
Seventh: (Really, Coral, seven bullets? You’re a wordy bitch today. Don’t worry guys, I’m wrapping it up.) I’ve started a second Broods book. I never really intended to write another one, but an idea occurred to me about a week ago and I started putting down words on it. It’s very preliminary of course, but right now it looks to feature Gunni as a main character, who some of you already know. Don’t worry Brand fans, there’s plenty of him in it too, it’s just not as much his story as the last one was.
