I'm Still Here!

Sorry, gang. I know I haven't been posting much here of late, but it's not because I don't love you. I've just been up to my ass in work and chores and stuff.

Work on the house goes well. The kitchen remodel is almost done. Just need to have the tile backsplash completed this week, and then some painting (yay, more work for me), then done.

Oh, and Jenny and I just got our first cell phones. I held out 41 years before I caved in. But now I'll be able to call her more easily when I'm out on the road at cons and such.

Also, I will be a mentor at Seton Hill University starting in January as part of their genre writing program. I'm very excited about that, because I'm curious to see if I can pass along the skills I've learned.

Work on the new series progresses, more or less. I seem to be spending as much time revising my outlines and notes as I do actually writing. Maybe I'm over-thinking the project, but the ideas just keep flowing. (Which is better than the opposite.)

Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. Don't forget to buy lots of copies of Shadow's Son and Shadow's Lure to stuff those stockings! :)

Shadow's Son Chugging On

Hey gang,

I see that Shadow's Son just crossed the "300 ratings" milestone on Goodreads. Even better, it's managed to keep a 3.5-star average. Thanks to everyone who has read it, and to those who took the time to rate/review it.

In other Shadow news, I just finished the copyedits for Shadow's Master and sent it back to the publisher. Still hoping we'll see it on the shelves in early-to-mid spring 2012.
