Hi there - thanks again to all who helped choose the next WIP. 

I haven't posted more on it for two reasons: one, I realized I really didn't like the direction the next scene was going in (seems a bit cliche) so that needs to be redone.  If you'd like to see what I plan on cutting/editing/rearranging, it's above under "cutting room floor".  There, you can at least see what happened after Caroline left the shop (which is where Midnight Ink ends in the candidate tab above).

The second, is that my health has taken a turn for the worse for the past two months, resulting in two hospital stays, and now a leave of absence until September. Now, that last bit sounds like it would be a blessing writing-wise, but unfortunately, that's not the case. My concentration is completely shot.  At some point in time, I may blog about it all, but for now, suffice it to say I'm a bit under the weather.  And some weather we've been having, huh?!  Even Maine had 95+ heat, which is something unheard of for them.

Anyhoodles, that's where I've been/where I am.  Hope to catch up to you all soon.  I do try to read your blogs - just haven't been commenting much.  I do know that Edie Ramer's "Galaxy Girls" is out now, and Charles Gramlich's "Ember Starr" is coming soon, so I'm stoked about that.  Check them out! :)


  1. I'm sorry to hear about the health woes. That really takes it out of you. I hope you get to feeling 100 percent better soon.

  2. Thank you, Charles. I'm looking forward to reading Ember Star when it comes out. I love that it started as just a fragment of a dream (if I'm remembering correctly!). I also love the Satan dream you had - I hope you do more with that one also - it has such horror and humor potential.

  3. Kate, I'm so sorry about your health. Big warm and fuzzy hugs. I hope it's something that will get better. And soon.

    Thanks for the shout out! I'm writing a novella now based on the Galaxy Girls.

  4. Take care of yourself...without your health, there's no writing!

  5. Thanks, Edie. I'm glad you're doing more with the Galaxy Girls (as well as all the others) - keep those fingers busy! :)

  6. Good point, Travis! I can't believe I didn't even think of that, lol. Thanks for the encouragement.


Say what you will...
