R is coming tomorrow as I'm tired, relaxed (thanks to half a bottle of wine that's leading to way too much backspacing), and both uninspired and unwilling to just belt something crappy out and post it. Long story short, I have no idea what R stands for. No, I'm not writing this out beforehand. when you see it is about two minutes after I finish it.
The half bottle of wine making my typing bad is being compounded by my cat sitting in my lap so I'm twisted in my seat and typing on the arm of my chair. Damn you, Fearless.
I appreciate everyone who likes the sylph soup series and is telling me so. I don't really go looking on the web for reviews as I'm a pansy assed wheenie who gets depressed when she reads a bad review, so I'm thrilled by your positive comments. First thing I do when I wake up in the morning is check my mail for comments. I must be in a different time zone from my readers because I seem to get most of my fan mail in the middle of the night.
When I'm not writing snippets, I'm slowly working my way through the fourth book of my unsold Cuckoo series, which, like all its predecessors, is like pulling teeth. I like it, but oy! is it fighting me.
No news on the publishing of the next two books of the sylph series, which are written. I know exactly why they haven't been bought and what's happening, but I won't say why. To do so would be a breach of confidentiality and I'm so much against that my totem animal is the chickadee. Suffice to say I have no bloody idea when they're coming out and I'm nearly as annoyed as all of you.
I'm trying to get other novels in other series published, as I refuse to only write books in one universe, but one thing I've learned is that the publishing industry is a glacial one. When I know anything, you will, but my agent is currently farming the following:
3 novel fantasy series
1 novel young adult
7 novel romantic fantasy series (that I haven't actually written yet. Unless said otherwise, the others are)
2 novel sylph continuation
I also have, that I haven't tossed at my agent for various reasons from "I should do a rewrite" to "I wrote it longhand and am too lazy to type it":
1 romantic fantasy novel
1 science fiction novel
1 half finished science fiction novel
about twenty short stories and novellas. I think. I'm too lazy to go and count them.
That's all I can think of right now. I'm going to go and wander onto Goodreads and add books to my 'to read' pile. The fact that Amazon.ca has so few books as kindle gives me the sad.
Happy Friday to everyone.
