What’s your favorite book of all time?
The Forgotten Beasts of Eld by Patricia A. McKillip
The Disgruntled Bear, is not so disgruntled. “I started this review a couple of days ago, but got so caught up in SOULLESS again that I ended up reading it cover-to-cover again.”
SPOILER ALERT! Amazon and Powell’s have posted Changeless cover along with blurb. Blurb gives bits of Soulless away so don’t read if you haven’t read the first book.
Blameless: Done, happy dance.
Super Secret Project H: Treatment submitted to agent. Paused.
Super Secret Project F: Consulted betas, good to go. Hope to write first two chapters next week.
CAKE in Space: Trunked for the moment.
Non-fiction short: (can go up to 3000) Finished first draft.
Not so secret fiction short: (can go up to 13,000) Working this week. Yes, it’s true. This is for the Mammouth Book of Paranormal Romance 2. For once, my British fans will get something first. I’m warning you now, it may not be what you expect.
