I apologize for my vanishing act here… I’ve been a bit busy as a result of all that amazing-ness. I didn’t win the Stoker for Bitter Suites, but I couldn’t be happier. Rena Mason won in that category with her long fiction The Devil’s Throat. There are several reasons this makes me happy, but that will be another post when I have more time.
For the moment, I am powering through the rest of the Bitter Suites story. I finished the second book last week and am now working on the third, and final, installment. I can’t say much, but it looks like there are a few interested publishers. It’s likely the entire Bitter Suites story will be published as a stand alone novel instead of a series of novellas as I originally envisioned. Of course, nothing is set in stone.
I think this is all I can get away with saying at the moment except “please excuse me while I write my a** off.”
