I received my first royalty statement today. While still epically far from being a millionaire, I'm $19 richer than I was yesterday! :-) If you have any friends who might be interested in my book Misfit Prophets Beneath a Bankrupt Sky, please spread the word. I don't have a publishing empire behind me to pay for advertising, so it all depends on word-of-mouth.

Please spread the (good) word with your mouths! ;-) That sounds so dirty. It's available at Amazon and Barnes&Noble in both paperback and e-book versions. If you happen to have a paperback version you want signed and will be at the Louden Swain show at Lestat's in San Diego at the end of the month, I'll sign it for you. ;-)

I'm still working on my writing. It looks as if the Hungry Hearts anthology has been delayed for a little while, but it's still coming! My short story "Persephone Is Bleeding" will be included in that one. Yes, I stole the title from another story of mine because I loved it so much and it fit so perfectly. I love coming up with titles, not that they're all gems. My Supernal story is in the editing phase and I've made a lot of progress on my Icarus story. Both need refinement, but I think they're pretty interesting. :-)  PG has faltered a bit because I've been focused on the other two stories so much, but I have been picking at it. If I can make the necessary refinements, I think it could be pretty awesome. I'm already excited about the set-up and I think that section really sets out the pieces quite nicely.

I really feel for Chuck right now. Writing is hard!

Misfit Prophets Beneath a Bankrupt Sky has been out for ten days. Word of mouth is my best advertising, so if you've purchased my book (or even just had good thoughts about it), please drop by Amazon or Goodreads or Barnes & Noble to leave a rating or a review.

Thank you for your support!

It's official...Misfit Prophets Beneath a Bankrupt Sky is finally out! The editing was completed quickly so it was released only a couple of days late. If you're interested in purchasing, you can find it here. Give it a try, I think you might like it.

In related news, I have an interview with Bitten by Books on February 12th regarding Misfit Prophets. If the lure of asking me questions isn't enough, there is also a contest for an Amazon gift card if you drop by. :-)

It's one week until my book is released, though I feel there may be a delay because they promised I'd get to edit it before it was sent out into the world and I have yet to see it. It makes me wonder. I know for a fact that there are things that need fixing so it definitely needs another look-over! They are going to think I'm difficult to work with, even though I've only sent two e-mails over the course of six months asking if I'd get another chance to edit it. They keep saying I'll get a chance, but...SEVEN DAYS. There are only seven days left before theoretical print. Isn't there some kind of lead time?! I also missed my chance to get it reviewed since it wasn't completed, yet.  For some reason I though this whole process would go more smoothly.

In other worlds, I had a lot of nightmares last night. Maybe I'm worrying too much! But in this part of a dream I had, I was at an amusement park that looked weirdly like a movie theater and I found they were going to have a Supernatural attraction. They has a small room set aside that looked like a conference room painted in lilac, with theater chairs set up in front of a screen. It looked very chintzy. But there was also going to be a ride that was cordoned off, since they were still building it. So I head back to the main lobby and somehow run into a group of three or four other Supernatural fans. We barely start talking when who bumps into us? Misha and Jensen. There's stilted conversation, about what I can't remember, and Jensen asks us to close our eyes. We're all leaning up against one of the lobby walls and we close our eyes, and he asks if we're ready. We say sure, and then suddenly I feel a mouth on mine. I was too stunned to do anything, and I kept my eyes closed, but from the sounds down the line it sounded like the same thing was happening. Dream Jensen had very soft lips. So when we finally open our eyes, Jensen is gone and Misha is sitting cross-legged on the floor looking at a binder. It takes me a second and then I start wondering if it had been Misha kissing us instead of Jensen and I cursed my brain for possibly taking that away from me. Now I don't even know who my dream-self was dream-kissing. Dammit.

They finally have an actual publication date - February 1st. It seems so far away! Sadly that means it will not be ready as a last minute Christmas gift for friends and family. For more information about my book Misfit Prophets Beneath a Bankrupt Sky and other things I'm working on, please visit my website. You might find something intriguing to put on next year's Christmas list!  :-)

My story, Misfit Prophets Beneath a Bankrupt Sky is still scheduled to be released close to the holidays. You can buy it here, as well as Amazon for Kindle once it's released. Drop by and take a look!

I've been working on another story, this one about Lucifer and his latest Persephone. Intrigued? It's a twist on the Persephone myth, and I hope you will see it eventually on your bookshelves.

Remember, Misfit Prophets Beneath a Bankrupt Sky will make a great gift for your more open-minded friends. Take a look!
