WIP Thursday ~ Dates and Subs

Yanno, looking at that post title... that's kinda kinky. Hee hee.

Ok, so it's hotter 'n hell here right now, so my brain is fizzling quick, but I wanted to share some news and some updates.

News note: Got a release date (I think) for Permanent. Squee!! Comes out January 9th!!! How cool is that. Start the new year with a brand spanking (has a little of that in it) new release (those are in there, too). I'm psyched.

I subbed the elemental, but I know I said that last week. Yanno, I know it's pretty much just been a week, and some people count 60 days as 60 week'm having a Tom Petty moment again. I won't gift you with the ear worm.

I'm going to plug on more with the side story to the elemental. I have no idea if it's going to be wanted, but yanno, it never hurts to keep trying even when the horse bucked you off and your leg's busted, bleeding and the (hunky) EMT's are right there trying to put the boards on it.

Here's to hoping the submissions board sees my sub and jumps on it like seagulls on a piece of bread. Mine, mine, mine!

At the Menagerie Talking About Elementals.

I'm over at the Menagerie talking about my WIP, an elemental story. Want to know what I'd do with fire? Then you need to come on over and talk with the Wild Women.

WIP Thursdays

So I've got an update. It's looking like Megan's story is going to come out in December. Seems like a long way off, but it's actually pretty quick. Think about it, in the grand scheme of things, a six month wait, is rather quick. I'm still excited.

I got a lot done on the elemental. Yup. Atria has seen the light of a crit partner and it sounds pretty good to go. I was afraid it wasn't terribly emotional, but it seems I'm happily wrong. I'm going to do some more smoothing and polishing. I think, yes, just think, it might be just about ready to submit. Yeah, time for the tums.

I'm going to work on Luc's story. Once I mentioned him in Atria's story, he insisted on having his own and I'm glad. I like Luc and Taygan is a fun but complex character, too. Taygan is a water elemental who doesn't want to admit he's super. There's a lot more than just that, but I'll leave that for the story.

Back to the grind and the bat cave. Gotta keep writing or Bad Barb will toss me in the closet.

WIP Thursdays

Been a while since I've done a proper got crazy. I'll give it my best to do it right and get you all up to speed.

I sent half the elemental story to the CP. She's not big into paranormals, but actually that's a plus. I mean, she's gonna look more for plot holes and goofy word usage and stuff. I need that, so I'm glad. She truly rocks, so I'm also not worried.

Contract came and was sent back to TEB for Permanent. The gals in the art dept always do a fantastic job, and I think (fingers crossed) I gave them enough of the right info that it should really rock. Again, I'm honestly not worried.

I'm also setting myself a goal. Doesn't mean I'll MEET it, but hey, better to set and fail than to fail because you never tried. The goal? To get the elemental and the companion story both done as well as subbed AND to write a higher learning story for the Dreamspinner call.

Think I can do it? I've got 'til August 15th. We'll see. I've got faith.

More later. I's gots to go write.

WIP Thursday

So I kinda forgot to post yesterday. It happens when you're busy having fun. Kealie's been here and we spent most of our time laughing. Great times.

I've got about half of the elemental story done. The companion story is outlined and in the notebook awaiting time to be added into the computer.

I know this isn't much of a post. I'm supposed to be at the Menagerie right now, too. Too many cool things to do and not enough time to do it. See ya there.
