I’ve added a new short story to my collection called ‘Under A Molten Sky’, a contest entry for the Wil Wheaton/John Scalzi Fan Fiction Contest to Benefit the Lupus Alliance of America. You can read the whole thing here. The contest winners won’t be announced until the end of the summer, but whether or not I win, I still enjoyed writing it.
I am currently preparing for the 2010 PNWA Conference in Seattle where I will not only be attending, but moderating a session as well. Should be lots of fun, if not a little nerve-racking. My other preparation includes preparing my pitch for my agent and editor meetings, and reviewing ‘The Forgotten Road’. I will also be working with Book Doctor Jason Black to do a final edit on TFR so I can, pardon the pun, close the book on that one, and decide where to go with that series. The series itself is on hold pending this edit, and pending the completion of some other work.
The biggest news is that my latest novel, with a working title of ‘The Unexplored Territory’, is going really well, and should be first draft complete by the end of the summer. I know this will sound self serving, but I absolutely love this story, and it just keeps coming. I can’t wait to put it in front of people and see their reaction.
