Ugg. I haven’t posted in a million years. Must be better at this.


The past three months have been non-stop until about… well,l until July third. Some of it has been good and some of it has been bad, mostly it wouldn’t be interesting unless you are interested in dog attacks on sheep and polio (sheep polio is not what you think, it’s a neurological disease that normally stems from poisoning or over eating) so I’m not going to talk about it, if you want to know I’ll tell you.

Hockey season is finally over. It went better for the Bruins than I expected, but they still fell two games short of the Stanly Cup. Two of my favorites were seriously injured. Although both of them say they will be fine for camp, I can’t see how since camp opens soon. Since then the team has made some weird moves. Basically getting rid of 4 men who play on the right side of the ice - including two men I will miss like crazy and two I don’t care one way or the other about. 

I’ve started something new and am 7546 words into it. I have much more time now since the hockey season is over.

How about you all? How have you been doing since I fell off the map?

what's the new thing about

I just came back to teach summer school and if you go back a week in my journal you'll see I sold a novel.

Awesome! When will it be out?

My new project has a frost giant trying to take over Springfield Mass and a Valkyrie and her consort are trying to stop him. Since it is in Massachusetts in January most people don’t notice that there is a frost giant.

Is it a book made out of paper, or an e-book?

The consort is from a family of Hyena shifters (he isn't one) so he is used to strong strong woman. Mind you she dosn't know that his family are shifters, not that she would care Odin loves shifters.

it'll be both.

Hyena shifters could be very interesting

cool. I will have to get a copy. Is it M/M errotica?

I wanted an animal that was female dominant and sort of loose when it came to social structure. I have four shorts out about the clan, so it is kinda a pre-set world.

That is pritty cool. I have to admit I've wanted to read your stuff for a bit now, it sounds interesting.

We will see if I get anywhere with it - I mean past the 7K I already have. I need to just sit down and do it *sigh*

Cool!

Things have been so freaking crazy recently that on my off time I want to sit around and watch bad horror movies.

Nice to see you here! Although to be honest I kind of fell off the map myself, but keep trying to get back to it. ;)

Sometimes it is hard to get on here and post, and when rl is crazy stressful I don't feel like shareing. I guess I'm a 'no chick-flick moments' kinda girl.

I am going to try to post at least once a week.

It is good to get in some rest while you can. Just to recharge.

Happy Birthday!
I heard about the sheep. Awful!

How are you feeling, aka back etc?

Sorry about the Bruins! As always... Next Year! (fingers crossed for you and yours)

I'm very curious about those 7546 words, of course. Are they in a familiar universe?

Have I missed anything new book-wise? If so, mea culpa!

DW has decided to produce an audio version of my Earthbow, presumably so it can keep Audible's recording of Seabird company.
He named me trail-herder for the new narrator about a month ago. (Wonder how he knew I was looking for summer entertainment? ;-P )
BTW, I wish DW would "get it" that "If you build it, they will come," only works in F/a/n/t/a/s/y /B/a/s/e/b/a/l/l/ baseball fantasy films.

I'm still looking for laid-back beta readers for Gryphon & Basilisk. Nada to date. Two weeks ago, I wrote a long prose-poem re Ocean City New Jersey. It has possibilities, but as a substitute for me actually -being- in OCNJ, it sucks.
