2013: AN UPDATE!

Two whole months I've been gone! The days... they just disappear. Nine hours at work, then waiting for baby to go to bed, and then more work.

I'm officially halfway through the first draft of Psychopomp. I started writing this series back in 2008; it's been nearly five years. It'll take a couple more years to iron out everything. But... I'm really, really proud of what I've come up with. Feels unique. The plan is to start querying Mrs. Shadow, the strongest book in the series, early next year.

The more exciting news: this summer, I'm going to release my first book (The Dead Rise) for the Kindle. It's going to mean more revisions... and illustrations! Which means more work.

I feel like I should be doing SO much more. Writers are supposed to be involved in some kind of community; I barely have time for Facebook posts. I haven't even sent out a sample of my writing in four years. But it's time to get something out there. Five years is a long time, and I don't want to put everything on hold until Audrey grows up.
