18 Days to Deadline
Haven’t been blogging much lately. TERMINAL UPRISING is due to my editor on tax day. I therefore need to finish writing it.
I also need to finish doing our taxes, for that matter.
Anyway, blogging will likely continue to be minimal for the next few weeks. All of my words need to go into my manuscript. (I’m doing this blog post with leftover words that didn’t make the cut. Like “moist” and “very” and “that” and “elocution.”)
I’m happy with how this revision is coming together. Added two bits today I really liked — one a moment of awe and wonder, and the other an alien snot joke. So, you know, typical Jim book.
Hope you’re all having a good week!

Taxes and a novel. So, two works of fiction?

Psst! I have this giant photo album of cats and kittens doing silly things on the internet… Check out page 3!

My husband has been reading Terminal Alliance and really enjoying it. Said you’ve done a great job of putting your characters in tough situations by taking them out of their zones of competence (rather than starting with less-compentent characters, which is the easy out). I’m next in line! *g*

About halfway through now, and I will say… I will never be too old for poop jokes. *lol*
Awesome book, and I can hardly wait for it to come out in paperback so I can add it to the library-o’-Claire and start circulating it. *g*
