Since the writing is going so freaking slow, I thought I'd better go visit some blogs to remind people I'm still here.

Today, I'm at Cameron Allie's Wednesday: #AuthorSpotlight. I discuss the start of my newest series with Destiny's End, as well as offering an exclusive excerpt from If You're Going Through Hell Keep Going. This is one of the funniest scenes I've written, and I have to admit I love a disconcerted Mark Vincent. ;-)

Gaudeamus Igitur didn't win the contest, but it did get some very nice feedback and a request to enter a sequel. Somewhere down the road, possibly, but I've got two books I'm desperate to finish, so that will have to stay on the back burner.

Home Before Daylight, the western that takes place in the 1860s, is almost finished, but it's topping out at 103k, and the word count is limited to 93k. I do have another book published with JMS Books that runs to almost 105k, so I'm hopeful this will be accepted. Otherwise, I might have to take off the last few chapters and make that its own novella.

I was saddened to hear Wilde City Books will be closing. They're doing it the right way though, informing their authors in advance that this will happen and promising to pay all royalties for their authors and fees for their cover artists and editors. After seeing what ARe did, as well as Torquere, Elora's Cave, and Samhaim, this is refreshing. I only have one novella published with them in an anthology, but it was a pleasure working with them.

That's disappointing, I really liked Wilde Books. They had great quality for their authors and were a quality publisher. I'm glad that they are doing it the right way, though. I always considered them a class act and it seems that they are going out in style as well.

In a way, it's like pounding one more nail into Eric Arvin's coffin, having Wilde close down. *sigh*

Now - get to work writing and editing - LOL.
