One Week In…

A week ago, I arrived in Seattle for the long stay.  Woke up this morning to a cat’s nose in my face. Life is back to what passes for normal…. (except they let me sleep until 6:30! A West Coast Miracle!).  The apartment’s still a work in progress, but we’re getting there.  It feels like […]

State of the Meerkat: Preparing to Fly

Spent the weekend split between sorting and storing, and revising the novella. And poking my brain at the short story that due next month. Semi-productive, in small ways that don’t really have impressive-to-report markers.  :-( But we’re at 9 donations confirmed, and 2 more promised for #willwrite2feedothers! Four more people stepping forward to do something kind, and you […]

State of the Meerkat: Waiting, and Revising

Two weeks before the move, and I’m living a weird kind of half-life.  Ideally, this makes me focus more on the work.  Ideally. Lunch with my agent this week, to discuss projects pending, and new.  Which means I really need to get the existing stuff off my desk and onto someone else’s (editor and/or formatters). […]

Updatery, various and sundry

My only comments about the election are that with democracy, sometimes we get the government other people deserved.  Also, that not giving up/not losing faith is the best fuck you we can give to those who want to haul us back to the 1950′s (or 1850′s). I’m off to World Fantasy today. Over the weekend, Subtenant will be cat-minding, […]

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 […]
