I'm pretty darn self-involved right now as I am currently in some phase of writing (first draft, revisions, line editing) with four different projects. Three of them contracted. One in proposal form. Then there's the preparation for the three Penelope Pageturner storytelling gigs (sponsored by the Atlantic County Library system).
My brain is totally jammed up with these things hence there is a natural desire to blog about one or all of the above. Frankly, I need a break from 'me'. Instead, I'd like to shine a little light on some friends in blogospere.
Anna Lucia announced her first sale awhile back (still happy dancing for her), but today, she gave up the name of the publisher (I'm guessing that means contracts are signed!) and it's one of my publishers--Medallion Press! Welcome to the MP family, Anna. Wishing you mega success!
Scott Oden just learned that his first historical blockbuster, Men of Bronze, did so well in the UK, his UK editor is also purchasing the rights for second novel, Memnon. Well done, Scott!
Jordan Summers shared an excerpt from RED, the gritty fantasy that she just sold to Tor. Um... wow! You've got to check this out.
Ken Levine celebrates his one year anniversary in blogosphere. As he's a daily dose of inspiration, I'm hoping he sticks around for ten or twenty more. *g* Happy anniversary, Ken!
Barb Hisle (one of my awesome sisters) celebrated a birthday yesterday. She also started a blog, a personal joy for me, where she discusses life in general and some of her favorite reads. If you get a chance, hop over and welcome her to blogosphere!
And now back to 'me'. Heh. If there's anything you'd like to know, a topic you'd like me to address, now's a great time to ask. I beg you. Ask. Anything. Because I am just now, you know, self-involved. *g*
