I need to finish the book I'm writing and then take a little time to write a short story for an anthology. I'm so excited that I was asked to be a part of an anthology with quite a few talented authors in it. Even better, I have an idea that really fits well with the theme of the anthology.

I'm supposed to be proofing and editing. Instead I've nearly completed a draft of another 'Celtic Otherworld' book, bringing total up to 16. This one goes between 'Exiles and Refuge' which covers the final Fay (Sidhe, Elves, Faerie) pullout from Earth and "Four Kids, One Foxe", about four Fay kids mysteriously transported to the house of a History Professor in Belfast who has just retired, it's set about 11 years after 'Exiles and Refuge', so space maybe even for another one or two.

So actual writing has slowed to a couple of words a day. I WILL have to edit in all the annotations I have from proof reading other books and finish editing my friend's book. I might add about 8,000 to 14,000 words to the current WIP, 'The Ensorcelled Maid' once I've edited in the proof reading annotations.
I did update my blog too.

I finished the third in my Days of the Watcher Gothic/Lovecraftian fantasy horror trilogy on Monday, and a couple of days ago I started on my next project: The First Run, about a Firefly/Han Solo-esque spaceship crew. I'm hoping to finish the first chapter tomorrow.

I'll notify your next of kin... that you sucked!

2,500 so far today. Pushing for 3,000.

Either way, it's great to be back in the swing of things.

25k into my next scifi book. I've finally got a feel for the characters (it's a space heist, basically) and it's going along swimmingly. I'm doing a lot of pantsing on this one too, and so far I haven't gotten myself into too much trouble.

Still waiting to hear from my copyeditor on Supremacy's Bounty. She's been dealing with a LOT of stuff, so I'm not going to bother her for an update until June. Book should still be out this year, though!
