Right now Vacui Magia is on sale at Kobo for 99 cents. If you’ve been thinking of checking it out, perhaps now is the time?
I was interviewed by the excellent Tim Jeffreys over at Dark Lane Books, about process, short fiction, and that endless struggle to balance paying-work and writing-work.
In other news …
Leviathan is in layout, so ARCs are coming soooooon!
I’ve been trying to finish a line edit on novel #1 so I can finally send it to a few people who were kind enough to show interest. It’s kind of now or never, because starting in mid-May I have a chain of (much needed) freelance projects coming in, and that’s pretty much me done for the summer. I have some shorts to finish and larger things to mull over, but there won’t be any all-day writing or editing sessions for many weeks.
A smaller excitement, but stationery fanatics will understand: I have a new planner coming. I haven’t been this excited over an object in ages. I’ve been using Plum Paper planners for the last couple years; they worked well for organizing but they’re heavy, and I hate the waste of all that coated paper and plastic. So I’m switching to a traveler’s notebook, with an eye towards recycled paper inserts that I can swap in and out, and a vegan leather cover (that’s the parcel currently crawling towards me). Gimme gimme gimme. This will also let me combine a Plot Your Work project planner with a calendar and a journal all in one little book-unit—knock wood, I’ll no longer have to carry two or three notebooks with me. I’ll miss spiral bindings, but that’s the only downside so far. Once or twice a year I feel like I make these little jumps forward in managing myself and my writing; this is one of those jumps. So freakin’ excited!!
