Meat Grinder and Blog Hop

The rough-rough draft of Guardian Angel is done!

Cartoons Myspace Comments

It's still sitting at around 80k, which is a bit more than I thought it would be. We'll have to see what happens when I'm done with the Meat Grinder, which should be next week (I hope). Then it's off to the beta readers, and hopefully to my editor beginning of January. I'm probably going to submit it to Carina Press first. After that, if I don't start on Throne of Oak soon I think my Carina editor is going to hunt me down and tie me to the keyboard. I might get potty breaks.


Oh, and when I'm done with Guardian Angel, I'll be starting work on The Hob.

He's not that kind of elf.
So I'll be taking the last two weeks of December off. My kids will be home and hyper for the holidays, so I usually don't get much done during that time period anyway. I may start the outline on Throne of Oak, but that would be about it. 

It will give me a chance to clear my brain of angels and get it into Robin Goodfellow.

He's not that kind of elf, either.

P.S.: Don't forget, tomorrow launches the Mistletoe Madness Blog Hop! I'll be posting bright and early. You could win a copy of Blood of the Maple, or the Grand Prize: a color Nook, pre-loaded with tons of books!

Gosh you are always so busy, I don't know how you keep that pace up! I am super excited for The Hob & Throne of Oak!

I actually just started Artistic Vision, my treat for getting holiday shopping done ahead of schedule :D

Hope you have a great time off!
