Revisionary Update

SILVER ON THE ROAD is now, officially, the longest book I’ve ever written, and I still have another 75 pages to revise (exactly where Mine Editor sayeth “give us more detail!”) So. Yeah.   (for those wondering, that means we’re past the 126,000 word mark. Certain Writers may call that a novella, but for me, […]

So, yeah. This is happening.

Where “this” is a leave of absence from NYC. In December, I’m packing up self, cats, and a limited (!) number of books, and hauling cross-country to Seattle, where I will take up residence for a year (or two). No, I’m not abandoning NYC. I still own my apartment – a friend is subletting, a […]

Various and Sundry has to unpack the cat

Writerly Stuff: Revisions on many things continue.   I am very boring on social media during revisions, unless you’re privy to the maniacal cackling and frustrated sobbing…. For those of you following the progress of SILVER ON THE ROAD, I just sent the following character references off to our art director: Kasun Izzy I have […]

A hint! A hint! My kickstarter for a hint!

And lo, we’ve hit 90% funded for TEMPORALLY OUT OF ORDER, an anthology featuring new stories from David B. Coe, Faith Hunter, Stephen Leigh, Gini Koch, Seanan McGuire, Laura Resnick, and moi – and some Others To Be Named Later! So that means it’s time to hint at what my story’s going to be about…. hint #1: […]

Hello, Monday!

I am home from RoberCon, no thanks to Rt. 87, which turned into a parking lot pretty much the entire way from Rt 17 to NYC, for no reason we could tell. It was, ducking the tl;dr, an excellent convention, well-attended (they filled their available space without becoming TOO crowded), well-paneled (the conversations were lively and […]

CAT FANCY and DOGHOUSE!

This landed in the old in-box today, via my publicist at S&S….       With a magazine circulation of about 200,000, go Team Kornetsky!   B&N| Simon & Schuster |Indiebound |Book Depository | Indigo/Chapters|Mysterious Galaxy|Seattle Mystery Bookshop  

Such a tease(r)….

Started working on my Temporally Out of Order story this afternoon. It’s… kind of outside the usual, for me. How unusual? Gotta get us funded to find out! $3,200 more to go…. (when we get to 1K to go, I’ll give you more of a hint…)

Puppy (and kitten, and human) love!

A new review for L.A. Kornetsky’s DOGHOUSE! (if you’re too busy to click through, I’ll give you the sum-up: “Explosions, bar brawls, and intelligent sleuths combine for a great read. I’d recommend it to fans of cozy mysteries.” - Krista McKeeth  Woo!)      

My RoberCon schedule

Fourth Quarter and the clock’s ticking…

Today is when estimated 3rd Q taxes are due in the mail, if that’s a thing that you need be concerned with. Just a friendly reminder from your neighborhood freelancer…. Meanwhile, the editorial revisions to CLAWED (Gin & Tonic #4) are back with my editor as of this morning (on schedule, go me!). So what’s […]
