A few things

Okay. First–and this is very exciting–Unholy Ghosts is available for pre-order on Amazon!!

Check it out!

Yes, as with Personal Demons, I will be doing fun contest-y things related to pre-ordering, listmaking, chat-topic-starting, etc. etc. And yes, if you do those things now you can enter them in the contest later. And yes, I will likely be doing the conest in the late summer/early fall–or whenever it is that I get ARCs–which means at least one if not more of you will be getting your hot little hands on a copy well in advance of the official release date.

Hee! Seriously, I am so excited.

I am also incredibly busy. I am halfway through the third Downside book at the moment and have set quite a lofty word goal for myself for this week; it’s Princess’s half-term week, which means I get to stay up a bit later to work.

So lofty is my goal, in fact….that I will not be here on Thursday. I just can’t. I have set myself quite a task–30k words this week–and really need to get my butt in gear if I want to have this book finished by the end of the first week in March. Now, granted, my goal is actually 20k words on the Downside book and 10k on another project which Mr. Agent and I are very excited about and which I need to get out there quickly because, you know, we’re moving in seven weeks (ACK!!) so after about the middle of March my working time is going to be severely curtailed.

So, sorry. I won’t be blogging on Thursday. I may pop in with a quick little post if I have time but I probably won’t.

And, sorry, this one is a bit short as well. I’d planned for it to be longer but I ended up getting caught up in something else for a little while and now it’s almost nine PM and I have a LOT of work to do.

    Good luck with the 30,000 word goal this week. That is a daunting task.

    Wow, lots going on! And moving and writing, take it from me, do not coexist easily if at all!

    Great news about the Amazon listing, too.

    Thanks everyone! I got one of my BIGBIGBIG scenes in last night so am extremely pleased thus far, and if I can make today as productive as yesterday I’ll be doing very well indeed. :-)

    Alright, so.. nice blog and all that. I was along time ago a programmer for viprasys and since left about a year ago due to one big fag ~~ViT~~ admin who I hated. Since then I have gotten them shutdown from godaddy and many others which he tried to move to and eventruly went back to godaddy. I got bored and stopped reporting them, I noticed you successfully got there domain locked which is a huge success but with them on there last chance it was only bound to happen. I would however like to say I found you and if it was my site I would pwn the sh1t outta you but since I agree with your actions I’ma let you go in peace. Thanks!
