I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm still here, and I'm still working. I just finished the final rough draft of More Than Words and it's with my beta readers now. I've started work on Hour of the Wolf, the next Maggie's Grove series. And I'm in talks to start a new series at Entangled Press, but that's for after I finish Hour of the Wolf.
See, I'm still here, still standing, and still trying to figure out my life post-Samhain. Mostly. The weather in my area has been beastly, with rain, rain, and a little rain thrown in for good measure. It's slowed me down, but it hasn't stopped me. Not yet, anyway.
I've also got plans for another series (I'm addicted, I tell you! Addicted!), but it's still way in the planning stage and I haven't gotten very far with it. As with everything else, I need to do some world-building to get everything straight as far as the paranormal rules go, and what I can and cannot do.
As far as the rest of my books, I've gotten advice on what to do with my series that are completed and may not be wanted by a new publisher. I'm giving it some thought, discussing it with Dustin, and will let you know what my ultimate decision will be. The others are still kind of in limbo, and that's all I can say about it at the moment.
So don't worry, guys. Everything will be just fine. Right?
