New Projects and a Release Date!

There’s something about summer. I always feel more motivated to get things done. So what did I do? I decided I was going to write a space opera novella in under two months. Why? Because that’s the submission call deadline, of course J I’m actually off to a good start. I’ve written 2k and it has to be between 25-30k. As long as I finish the first draft in June, that gives me all of July to do rewrites (minimum of four solid rewrites) and the first week of August to clean up format and write the synopsis. Easy peasy, right? It’s okay for you to laugh, I am too.

In other news…I have a tentative release date for Ink. It’s going to be March 1st 2010! Yay! I’m so excited. I can’t wait to see the cover (yes, I know it’s going to probably be about six months before I have a cover, but I’m still waiting anxiously).

Oh, and I got my e-reader. Thank you, very much sweetheart! I adore it! I’ve already downloaded and read three of the e-books I’ve been putting off because I didn’t want to be tied to a computer to read them.

All in all, good times. Now back to the WIP. I left my hero and heroine in a scene they probably want out of :)


  1. So what kind of e-reader? How big and heavy is it?

    Should I vow that I will never buy one? I say that in my head now, like I said about the Ipod, Twitter, Facebook, blogging, e-mail, Blackberry phones, etc. etc. etc...all of which I own or use now. :)

  2. I got a Sony prs-505 and I love it. That being said, Kindle's instant download is the one option that almost sold me on getting it, but in the end I decided I could buy a lot of books with the $100.00 I was saving.

    With all the vacations you guys take, and with all the books you read...I could see one being really handy. I have about five books on mine already. Five books I can take with me wherever I go and it's smaller than my dayplanner. It's handy!

  3. Sorry, should have said Kindle's instant download was the one feature, not option.

  4. I'm guessing it will be in my inventory within a few years. Sounds cool! :)
