Christmas balls

My thanks go out to Belinda Witzenhausen for the thoughtful post for Incantation Paradox, Books to Curl up With. The urban fantasy is now available in paper back on Amazon. It would definitely make a wonderful Christmas gift for those who love to read about magic.

The Kindle Scout campaign for White Swans A Regency World is not going well and I don’t believe Amazon will be picking up the title. Oh well! As an author I’ve learned to live with disappointments, but I’ve also learned never to give up. I might try a small press or just self-publish. Haven’t decided yet.

The edits for Dragons in the Resistance are coming along extremely slow. I don’t think it will be released before May.

I’m working on the second book for White Swans and writing a romance novella I hope will make it into a boxed set for next Christmas with some excellent romance authors.

Cleaning my desk, I found five different compositions books with different stories in them. One holds the beginning of another romance, one has bits and pieces for the novel I want to write about the uncles who raised me, one contains the writing of the collection of short stories I’ve called A New Era. This is the one I’ve been thinking about changing into a novel. Another notebook holds the sketches about a woman doctor heading for a colony on Mars. I just couldn’t believe how many works I have started and need to completed.

A friend author suggested I read Rivet Your Readers with Deep Point of View. The book gives some very good suggestions I will be implementing in my writing to pull the reader deeper into the characters of the novel. Improving everyday is the name of the game for a perfectionist. To bad I’m always having terrible problems with punctuation. Maybe one day, all the awful rules will magically get into my brain.
