game on

Because Real Life has been a bit of an uncooperative b**ch for the last few weeks, the 1st of the Month Fic hasn’t been written yet. It will arrive, honest, I just don’t know when…

On a more productive front, Game On Game Over has just crept over the 50 k mark, and I only have a couple of scenes to finish. Then it’s off to my beta-readers for their input.

I’ve also completed a ‘Five Things’ interview for friend and fellow author RJ Scott, which was a little different to the norm and fun to do.

Brief Encounters Reviews are having a ‘Fortnight of UK Authors from March 21st to April 1st’, and I’m one of their featured authors. I’ve been interviewed, but not sure yet when it’ll be posted. They specialize in reviews of short stories, and my Torquere Sips qualify *grin*.

Over here in my part of the UK, the weather is cold, dank, wet and windy – and we may yet get another bout of bitter cold and snow – February is usually our worst month down in the south-western counties. BUT snowdrops and crocuses [croci?] are flowering, the daffodils are shooting up and budding and I am an eternal optimist as well as a cynical old broad. So I am happy. The dogs? Not so much. They will eagerly hurl themselves into freezing cold rivers [Labrador and a Curly Coated Retriever], but go out in the rain? Oh, the horror of it – our cruelty knows no bounds!

On the writing front, Game On, Game Over is still progressing. Word count sits at 45,336 so it is on course to end up round about the 50k mark. It’s still working as a complete story rather than two parts, but the two parts are so different in setting and pace. If the publisher accepts it, I’ll let them decide whether to release it as a whole or to split it. Delegate – aka chickening out…

March 19th is coming closer, bringing with it the release of Starfall. I am pretty excited about this, not simply because I’m damned pleased with the story itself, but because I want the world to see the amazing cover Reese Dante created for it. The detail and effort she went into is humbling. Just take a look at my Ash’s eyes – mesmersing, yes?

Such a talented lady. Her skill is in itself inspiring – you are driven to write a new story because you want to see what Reese will produce for the cover art!
