I usually don’t work on more than one story at a time, but this time I’m getting ‘down wit it’. My writer’s group critiqued my submission, and a lot of useful information came out of that meeting. Now I’m trying to get on with the rewrites and tighten up the story. However, I’ve also got another story on the go, also clamouring for my attention. The test will be whether I can get on with two stories at almost the same time.
But wait, there’s more. An e-book publisher I know wants me to write a novel for them. Now, this e-book publisher sells e-books by the truckload, so I am more than happy to get such an offer. Now I really do need to focus, finish these two short stories and write that novel.
Sleep? What’s that?
Had a great time at the pub celebrating The Immersion Book of SF. Great friends and authors showed up for some drinks, food, and the conversation was electric. I tell you I was in awe of the High-Priestess of SF&F, Tanith Lee. She is such a sweetheart, a wonderfully warm and friendly person. Writer Al Robertson was on hand, and he is such an intelligent man he almost blew my mind. Chris Butler, Gareth Owens were chewing the fat with Jessica Payne, Stephen Gaskell, and artist Charles Harbour. The wonderful Liz and Deirdre Counihan were there, adding a touch of grace to the celebrations. All in all, a wonderful evening.
On another note, The Immersion Book of SF is selling well, so get your copy.
