Okay, I made it to Tuesday. And there is absolutely nothing going on in the Harrison household. Guy took charge of the computer issue and got me a better machine with a “quiet” package and a few other perks for the same cost. It’s shipping out when we get back from vacation. He’s the man, I tell you. We’ve been together over 20 years, and he has his skill set, and I have mine, and I’ve got no problem turning tasks that make me frustrated over to him. And he shines! (He’s a shiny guy)
My workload has shifted, too. The ms I was waiting for still hasn’t arrived, meaning that it was shipped regular mail, not express. There is no way I can do a line edit/light rewrite of an entire manuscript in three days, so it’s shelved until I get back. Between now and my escape, I’m finishing up my personal edit of the third Madison book. I should have it done by Friday, and then I can shelve it, knowing that it’s in pretty good shape, then turn my eyes to the Hollows, and hit the “go” button.
That’s going to be a good day, because the Hollows has a ton of ideas I want to get on paper. More Al. More Trent. OMGosh, even Nick shows up, the slime. And a new big-bad-ugly to take us to the end of the series. (Not that it’s any time soon.) Can’t wait.
Now that it’s July, it’s not too soon to start talking about the Bis and Jenks novella that is coming out August 25th through Eos. UNBOUND. This one is a handpicked collection of urban fantasy authors, and I had the chance to read them when the page proofs came in. They are all fabulous! The author lineup is me (Hollows novella), Vicki Pettersson (Signs of the Zodiac novella), Jocelynn Drake (Dark Day’s novella), Melissa Marr (new story line), and Jeaniene Frost (Bones novella) More as we get closer, but really, these are super stories, and that they are novellas means it’s a nice chunk of read.
