    Well, this is the SHAMELESS thread after all, and this feels piling on... but just got an email from the Indie Book Awards... Eve of Snows won the Fantasy category there. Krikee!

    Currently busting my arse behind schedule on releasing Whispers of Ghosts June 25... Making myself nervous, LOL.

    And that the Next Generation Indie Book Award.

    I'm so far behind schedule with the rewrite of 'Empire: Judgment' it's not funny. A dying computer and MS Word crashing earlier this week are not helping matters any.

    It’s amazing how fast I falls behind and how slow I catch up, heh heh. The kids home from school and needing help with all the schoolwork is totally throwing me off, LOL.

    Eve of Snows is named a Grand Prize Winner in the Next Generation Indie Books Awards, 2nd place in ALL of Fiction.

    I mean of course one thinks ’Why not my book?’ when entering contests, but even after winning the Fantasy category I was like... naaaaah, Not my little book, no way it hits the top three. Well, so much for that notion!

    After many years of wrestling with recording to no avail, we finally broke down and opened up to the possibility of finding a narrator for our audiobooks.

    AND WE FOUND ONE!!!

    He's awesome. He's actually better than my wife, which is no mean feat, and he sounds a lot like one of our characters does in my head. SO excited! We're still talking time tables, but he's interested in narrating at least the first three books!

    Okay, I'll stop squeeing now. :D

    Past the 50k mark for my current project! While it's a completely arbitrary number of course, I like the feeling of passing it, even if I've still got 10k or so words to write. I do feel that the current project is not as strong as the previous one, plot-wise. But maybe that's something for revision (or just imposter syndrome...). On that note, if anyone feels like being a beta-reader, let me know ;)

    Now hit the 70000 word mark in my latest novel. Feels good, even if I do say so myself - as a dyslexic writer. Don't think it will get much longer, I'm just at the point where it starts to wrap up. Then we'll see what the others say...

    That was me on a Saturday last month. It's a damned good feeling! Glad to see there are writing tables out there just as cluttered as mine is.(y)

    I liken my desk to a tornado strike zone. My writing partners both have neat, tidy desks, but no, I'm Irish and an Aspie. I need my toys. :D

    I don’t have a desk, if I did, you wouldn’t be able to see it anyhow.

    Well, I'm reasonably sure there is a desk (two of them, actually) beneath all the paper and debris...

    Hot dang doodle! I just got a request for a full manuscript. That's two for two now. Two submission queries, two requests for the full manuscript. One, you can put down to luck, but two? Maybe, just maybe, this book is the one ...
