Where've I been???

So I know I'm late, sorry people, but my other id took over for a while and started writing her crime novel. She's even more demanding than I and, seeing as how she claims to know how to kill a man using nothing but an ordinary playing card, I'm not one to meddle with her. Anyhow, she's taken a short break and has allowed me to update you about my musings.

If you weren't aware, the good people over at eXessica publishing have decided to publish my first book, Different Shades of Gray. You can read an excerpt on my Books page here. The release date is scheduled for March 18th, 2011. I'm super excited! The marketing blitz will start soon, so I'll be going back under for a while ;o)

I've finished the first draft of my second novel, DEVIL'S FLAME and the editing begins in a week. Then it's on to the submission process, so look out for that one late 2011.

If you've been looking for your Sable fix, I wrote three shorts for the Ain't That Quaint? competition hosted by my friends at A Word With You Press. The competition focused on a list of 20 "truisms" from which we had to choose to write about three. You can click on the link to check out my three entries: Tie, A Word With Charlie Brown, and Tape 6. be sure to leave your comments, I love to hear from you guys. Also be sure to check out the other shorts and the wonderful insights on this site. They are truly "Publishers and Purveyors of Fine Stories". They're always up to something over there, so be sure to bookmark them and visit often.

Okay, my id Isadora Monday is taking over again. She's got a deadline to meet (one she didn't discuss with me, but she keeps shuffling playing cards so I'm not complaining). I promise to check in with you all shortly.
