Today is the hubs’ birthday, so I’m just popping in quickly with a few little updates.
1. The RWA is beginning its backpedal, as fast as its expensively shod little feet can carry it. They’re forming a Task Force to learn more about epublishing. Better late then never? Yes, but it shouldn’t have been late at all. If you’re going to set rules regarding an industry, you should educate yourself first.
2. The Eighth Wand, my novel for Ellora’s Cave’s Torrid Tarot series, will be released October 17, 2007. Yay! I’m nervous about this one–yeah, I’m nervous about all of them, but this one makes me different because it is different from my usual stuff. My two main characters are much, much more serious people than most of my H/hs–less joking, more angst. As I’ve said before, I was dealing with some feelings of isolation and unhappiness when I was writing it, so although it pokes some fun at a few archetypes (pagan “fluffy bunnies”*, take cover), overall it’s not a particularly funny book. I still really like it, though, I think it’s one of the more emotional and romantic stories I’ve written. Anyway, October 17!
3. The hubs is currently playing Grand Theft Auto 3, one of his birthday gifts. It’s…interesting. The funny thing is at first he kept driving on the wrong side of the road.
