If anyone's wondering where I've been (as in, not here or anywhere, yikes!) for the last week, well, it's editing frenzy here. |
The deal is, I am getting a whole bunch of my old published stories ready for inclusion into my upcoming Prime collection SALT OF THE AIR. And in order to do that I have to line-edit and line-proof and line-maul, and then rewrite a whole bunch of decade-old published crap (to my now-embarrassment, in some cases) for about 85K worth of stories.
At this moment I have about one third of it left to "process" (like cheese, seriously, there's no other word for this decrapping).... Hoping to be all done by the end of the weekend. In fact, must be done by the end of the weekend.
Why the rush, you ask? Well, the manuscript has to go ASAP to a very kind Big Name Author who is potentially going to provide the introduction.
So, this blog and others like it will return to life in a day or two.
