The desk: getting very messy, even by my standards. It may take an archaeologist to dig through all the layers.
But I don’t care because: I have another story sale! It will appear in the WTF Anthology (which is promising to live up to its name) in print and ebook toward the end of this year. The story-behind-the-story is quite interesting too, but you’ll have to wait until we get closer to the release date for details. (Either that, or buy me beer) 🙂
I have one short story in the plot hospital, one nearly finished, and a third one that turns out to be closely linked in theme, characters, setting, and structure with the second. Getting these into a good place should coincide with the return of first comments from the Alpha reader for my novel. For most of September, I should be focusing on getting the novel in shape to show Beta readers.
And at some point, cleaning my desk. 🙂
P.S. Dear comment spammer with the beer-related web site. You came very close to getting past me. It was the two separate posts, from wildly-different IP addresses and obviously manufactured yahoo.com email addresses that gave it away. You got too greedy.
