peeking out from under my LJ rock to let you know that my novel, Shapers' Veil, has been accepted for publication by Hadley Rille Books. Yay! OK going back into my shell now -- thanks for all the inspiring posts!

See you at Campbell Conference!



I submitted a poem to a local magazine today. I wrote it a long time ago, but never submitted it anywhere until now.


2000 more words, in which Kawi confronts his fallen nemesis. Finally!
Got waylaid by my son's financial aid application process. pshaw
Well, chapter 43 is finally fixed. Kawi is reunited with his friends after a period of captivity. There was a lot of cutting and pasting, re-arranging and re-visualizing. I don't know that I can put a word count on it. I had tried to touch on several issues in the same chapter but decided to focus on one issue with more depth.

Chapter 44 will remain untouched. It is strong and painful and will remain so -- these things happen in times of war.

Next I plan to re-visualize Chapter 45 from a different POV, and hopefully give Elekai a little more dignity.

I was thinking about incorporating a separate story, The Charioteer, as a chapter in the novel, but I don't know if that will work out or not. I'll tinker with it and see what I think.

Wrote 750 words in a project to shore up the climax of my novel, Shapers' Veil.


Whew! what a week. ASP.NET is kicking my back-end.


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Moon Ice

I am interested in what the LCROSS data shows. My story Visual Silence surmised that ice is present, though rare and valuable enough to encourage ice pirates.  I'm eager to find out how close it comes to reality.

Though I'm rather smug that Luna simply swallowed these puny human projectiles into her vast shadows without a visible hiccup.
