News and Random Bits O'Stuff

Gonna hit the keyboard hard here, but first a few things to pass along:

After a long time of self-imposed abstinence, I have a new agent. This of course makes me feel all recharged and revved up, so I'm pounding along on my big novel project, HIGHBORN. Keep an eye here for word count/progress reports.
 

"Revelation" is still up at Horror World (http://www.horrorworld.org/fiction.htm), through the end of the month. Comments?

Look for my story, "Last Storm of the Season," in the erotic Lovestrology anthology. Lovestrology is scheduled to be released January 1st on the Ravenous Romance website (http://ravenousromance.com/).

I'm excited to announce that Bad Moon Books (http://www.badmoonbooks.com) is bringing back FINAL IMPACT and RED SHADOWS. Each book will come out in limited edition hardcover in 2010 (one early, one mid-year), and each will have a brand new story in that book's universe to go with it. Then, in late 2010, Bad Moon Books will release a very limited lettered edition of *both* books, this time with a "bridge" story, one that takes place somewhere between the end of FINAL IMPACT and the beginning of RED SHADOWS. More info on that as we go along.

The Save Our Planet Random Bits O'Stuff:

Just a few suggestions. If each of us does one small thing, it turns into a big good thing:

CatalogChoice.com - 60 seconds to sign up, and say goodbye to hordes of tree-killing junk mail that you always throw out anyway. And once you're signed up, it takes literally 3 seconds to find and opt out of new cataloges that show up in your mailbox: http://www.catalogchoice.org/

DoNotMail.org -- Sign the petition to stop the junk mail before it starts. This one will cover all the in-envelope paper spam. How many times a week can companies like Physicians Mutual ask you to buy [more... and more] insurance, anyway?

LuckyEarth.com - Lucky Earth Waterless Car Wash - Winner of Los Angeles Magazine's Best of 2008 Best Green Car Wash. Okay, I haven't tried it... but I'm going to. I live in Arizona. It takes 116 gallons of water to hand-wash a car. A 32-ounce bottle of Lucky Earth Waterless Car Wash will do it 7 to 10 times. Yes, I can do math.

Revelation
I loved the story. As an aspiring fiction writer (among zillions) it's a great example of building suspense and interest in a character. I also had to wonder, did she experience these things or make them up (I don't expect you to answer but it's fun to think about). I wish there was a creativity pill. Seriously, sometimes just getting through life takes so much energy there isn't much left. Best wishes, Gayle

Re: Revelation
Thanks for the nice words about the story. Yes, life can take a lot of energy to deal with... just be sure to save some for you and the stuff YOU want to do. Like writing!
