ANGEL Takes Wing!

Woot! ANGEL WITH A RAY GUN has found a new home! Desert Breeze Publishing will release it on or about May 1 (this year!) as an e-book.

I'm pleased as can be. I told myself not to get my hopes up too high. Reissues are notoriously difficult to place. My agent says so, and she knows.

E-publishing: been there before, and the upside of this book's release is that e-books are much higher profile now than when I first sold one in '02. The big publishers are starting to realize the potential of this market. And then there's Kindle.

So watch for bigger things from e-publishing. With the economy so uncertain, publishers seem to be re-assessing how they get content out there, and the future of the e-book looks brighter than before.

ANGEL Flies Again (Maybe)!

More excitement here at Casa Chaos. An e-press to which my cherished editor referred me, is okay with the idea of reissuing previously published books! I finally cobbled a query together for my "fun book", ANGEL WITH A RAY GUN, and the publisher liked the excerpt! She asked for the full, which I duly and obediently sent off today.

So ANGEL may stretch her wings yet again. I'm hopeful, but in this economy, not banking too much on the idea of a deal.

However, it would be nice to make a sale in this run-up year before SEASONS IN THE MIST releases. Very nice indeed.

Hope for me!

It's the Time of the "Seasons"

Hurray! I got all required edits done on the sold book, SEASONS IN THE MIST, and sent it off to the publisher.

My pub has given me such good suggestions on this book--they have made it a much better story. I declined one recommendation 'cause I didn't really feel it was needed, but otherwise I incorporated everything she said. I like this book. I really like it.

Done enthusing now. Until further suggestions come, or until I get my galleys, this book is now put to bed...time for further work on PEACEWEAVER, methinks.

Although I DO have a germ of an idea for a SEASONS sequel...
