No con report from me. Sorry. I had many patches of wonderful—chewy conversations, funny conversations, hugs, some splendid Writer Moments, and other Neat Stuff, not to mention free books—and yet, I came away feeling somewhat off balance. (Am processing this. I do know it was purely me, not the con or the lovely people there.)
I arrived home late Monday afternoon, a bit too frazzled to do more than pet the kittens. Today went to all kinds of catch-up chores. Tomorrow, I really need to go head down into ALLEGIANCE. And oh man, this one is being a true bear to write. deliasherman
explained that this is normal for the last book in a trilogy. The story is a river that has spread out over two books, and now I'm trying to force the current back into a single channel. I'm making progress, but it's slow.
And in other news, the release date for Fox and Phoenix has changed. The original tentative date was July 2011. The new release date will be sometime in the autumn, exact month not yet known. At some point, I hope to get revision notes and jacket copy.
Anyway, lots of stuff. I won't predict how much I'll be online. Emails nagging me to write faster are welcome. :)
