Everybody’s working through the weekend…

Today’s WiP darling: “She had grown up in proximity to the devil; power had been as present in the air she breathed as the sulphured smoke from the blacksmith’s forge.” I may kill it later. But for now, we’re in love. :-) 2000 new words and I’m finally starting to feel, nearly 25,000 words in, […]

midweek check-in is all linked-up

CatofSize isn’t sure if he’s having a bad morning or is just in a Grumpy Old Man stage. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference…  And I probably should stop referring to having to shoot the cat. New people (and some older ones) keep reading it all wrong. ;-) But hey, being up at 6am […]

The State of Everything – A Working SitRep

Novels/novellas: SILVER ON THE ROAD is copyeditor-bound. I hope to have ARCs soon, to maybe scatter among the deserving and talkative… (if you’re a blogger or otherwise loudmouthed in the industry and want one, email me!) WORK OF HUNTERS (Sylvan Investigations #3) is with the proofreader and from there into backer-edition production, huzzah! CLAWED (Gin […]

*tease*

So on Friday, I finally saw the almost-finished cover for SILVER ON THE ROAD. And I had some nitpicks, because, well, ARTISTS, she said in mock disgust. But overall? I kind of fucking love it. But it’s not Officially Finished Yet.  So I can’t show it to anyone. *flails and dies a little*

State of the Meerkat, Five Things Weekend Roundup Version

1.  Reminder if you missed the earlier announcements: the #‎willwrite2feedothers story for 2015 went live! (but will only remain live for a limited time, so read now!) 2. A sporting thing happened here in town.  There was much swearing and sweating and triumphant heart attack honking and cheering.  If I’d had an actual emotional attachment to this […]

BVC Boxing Week Sale!

Got a new ereader? Got an old ereader? Time to load that sucker up… And my epic fantasy novella (with sea serpents! And wine!) “From Whence You Came” is 50% off! “A thoughtful examination of the consequences of magic; stands alone and away from its progenitor series well. Getting to see a legendary hero as […]

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, […]
