This weekend I shall mostly be working on the second draft of BLOOD HUNT, and hopefully a little bit on Night and Chaos, depending how things go. How about everyone else?
So, I have linkables:
The first urban fantasy story I ever wrote, Cassandra Lee, made it into Static Movement's Something From The Attic 2 anthology. Huzzahs! I re-read it and did a quick polish before submitting, and I'm shocked at how awful some of the dialogue was. Shocked, I tell you! I still really like the main character though, so I'm glad I was able to find a home for the story after so many years.
Anti-Nano kicks off in two days! Still time to sign up if you're interested. I'm adjusting my goals slightly in light of the BLOOD HUNT edits; I would love to get the second draft knocked on the head this weekend, but I'm also realistic enough to know it might not happen. So Anti-Nano for me will now be dedicated to BLOOD HUNT, Night and Chaos, and Halflife if I finish Night and Chaos. Seems like plenty to keep me occupied for one month.
I'm starting to line up projects for myself for 2011, too. I'm contracted for a third Urban Wolf novel, and hope to be contracted for more after that *crosses crossables*. I plan to write more Ethan novellas in addition to Halflife, because I love the Shoregrave world and I want to inflict it on as many people as possible (and I promised my mum I'd finish up Yasmin's story for her anyway). I've also got two sequels to Night and Chaos planned, Blood and Bones and Smoke and Shadows, at least one of which will involve human sacrifices, so huzzahs! If I can get all three of those onto the Kindle, as per my Plan, by summer 2011, I will be a happy bunny.
I will probably attempt to write the Scarlett novel next year too. This has been on hold way too long. Waaaaaaaaay too long.
Oh, and I heard that the editor with Wild hasn't read it yet, but it's creeping up her TBR pile, so I'm hanging fire on that for a while. *chews fingernails*
