I've been a bad blogger lately. I have no excuses except that May sucks and I'm trying to finish the current WIP on top of day job stuff. Having a nearly finished manuscript feels a little like having a ghost on your shoulder, pressing on you, never leaving. The only solution is to exorcise the motherfucking thing and kill it DED.
Pass a knife.
In the meantime, some links to Stuff Going on with Me:
* Two weeks ago at the ELEW, The Myth of the Likable Heroine
* Last night at the ELEW, Bipolar Bear (my own tips for writers dealing with mental health problems)
* My interview at Book Blather wherein I talk about writing, reading, and publishing. And also LOST in the comments.
* A lovely 5 Heart review at The Romance Studio of Bloodlines, saying, "Over all the book is great, with wonderful characters, a plot that keeps moving and some real surprises. If you are looking for something that not straightforward and expected this is a great book for you. It is one you'll want to go back to and read over again."
Generally I subscribe to the "don't comment on reviews" policy but I also like to show my appreciation for the people who read and review my work...so thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who took the time to read the book and especially those who have reviewed it. It means a lot to me. (Also, I worked damn hard on revising the book, so it's nice to hear people are enjoying it.)
That's it for today. I have a long post of thank yous to supportive peeps that I have drafted and I'll post it just as soon I can find a way to keep my tough chick cred along with it.
