These books are getting ready for publication, or re-publication. After my split with Red Iris I had a mini freak out. I went from living on someone else's schedule (I had deadlines which were contracted) to being able to do whatever I want. My plans all had to change, and it took me a few weeks to be completely fine with that and to find people that could help make the process easier.
I make myself edit at least 3 pages of this book everyday. Even if I don't want too, even if I need sleep. Even if I end up doing it at 3am while blurred eyed and feeding a newborn. I really don't want to be.. not because I don't like the book, because I do. The Desert of Ash and Waves is book 3 of Skeleton Lake series and I think it's my favorite.They tend to get (in my humble opinion) better because I like Marlow a lot more as she grows up. It's also the longest, and spans the most miles. The reason I'd rather not be editing is is because it's going to be so long before it comes out. The re-release of Skeleton Lake and the release of Skeleton Song, will happen *likely* on or before the anniversary of Skeleton Lake which is October 27th. Then this second book, Dust of the Dead Sea isn't even scheduled yet. I am due to completely rework my 2012-2013 schedule as soon as baby Thistle sleeps through the night. I started to tell you a little bit about The Desert of Ash & Waves but you'd be pretty lost. But we know from the end of Skeleton Lake that Marlow, Raiden, and Conrad are headed away from Skeleton Lake. Sadly, for them being away from home is going to become something of a trend.
One more! I am currently plotting this book for the 3 Day Novel Contest. You will be hearing a lot about that later. This is my third year entering the contest and I am super excited about it. I thought up this book while tweeting the other day, I had another book slated to write labor day weekend but I decided it had to be this. The Gods of Market Street, my first ever adult paranormal book.
Ok I'm done now. I know I am leaving some things out (like every last one of my middle grade projects. That query letter I have been meaning to get to and two anthology pieces) but this was what I could recall WRITE Now. Here is who I am tagging (now run off and tell me about your WIPs) I choose 5, then you choose 5. Move it or lose it Mr. Far, Heather Jacobs, Maurice Lawless, Ali Cross, and Tiffany King.
