Well, I'm sitting at home on a Saturday evening (my anniversary of all days) with a nasty stomach flu. Ick. So, I thought I'd throw a little blog out there. This month has been super busy. I've been editing and querying Spirit World. On top of that, the family and I went on a cruise. Good times were had but unfortunately Carnival has nothing for babies. Small Child was not allowed in the pool areas, and was only allowed in the playroom four hours the entire week. We kept him entertained by letting him crawl up and down the halls and up the stairs. Then, when we got back, he started walking. Lord, help me.

So, needless to say I've gotten very little new writing down. I seem to be stalled out on Princess. I've made it to the end of the first act, and know how the second act ends, as well as the rest of the book, but am not sure how to fill in those 10,000 words I'm lacking. I'm going to go ahead and write the bits I do know, and see what happens then. Maybe the characters will tell me.

Fun Links

The other day, I opened my email to find a wondrous surprise, I had won the May prize pack from The League of Extraordinary Writers. Yay. Books and swag! If you enjoy dystopian novels, I highly recommend you check them out. Plus, they get bonus points from me by discussing Joss Whedon's Firefly today.

Another blog and webiste I've been visiting frequently is You can search for agents and it's instantly visible whether they accept submissions by mail, email, or forms. You can then save your searches and record the responses. Rejections get evil emoticons. It's fabulous. They also have frequent agent judged contests, but you have to be quick on the draw. They do, however, give you plenty of notice as to when the contest opens.

FYI, I don't post a lot of links on my blog. More often, I'll put them on my Twitter page. If you're interested, the link for that is on the side.
