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 […]

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…)

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 […]

State of the meerkat: September, random and otherwise

Last night I woke up and – half-asleep – replaced the summerweight coverlet with the down cover. This morning I am wearing sweats and a long-sleeved t-shirt, and making the season’s first stew (lamb and lentils). If you think all this makes me very happy…. you’d be right! This is a weekend for working, not […]

DragonCon 2014 Schedule Repost, with Additions! And Locations!

Please to note: a) I have a reading. If you want to know what’s coming up in 2015, you will be at that reading. Bringing me chocolate will be optional, but appreciated. b) once again, I’m going to be on a panel with Laurell Hamilton and Jim Butcher. Come to this panel. Scream devotedly when […]

I have two speeds: done early, or running late…

I have checked in for my flight tomorrow to Dublin and Shamrokon. I have settled on what I’m taking, made sure I had all the carry-on things I need (passport, cables, chargers, euros in wallet, medications), packed it all into as small a bag as I can manage, and printed out the cat-sitter information. There […]

If you’re going to be in upper New York State (or thereabouts) this September 27-28…

You might want to check out RoberCon in Binghamton, NY Why? Because – in addition to being what sounds like a very nice, local SF convention that’s focused on combining interest with affordability – they’ve foolishly asked me to be a featured Guest. So there will be Hijinks.  Minion Ribbons.  And possibly an attendees-only surprise….  :-)
