I was doing really well after the Master Publishing workshop. I had a single day of downtime, and then I was right back to work. Wrote a hell of a lot that first week.
Then Blaze got sick. (BW: Terry’s fault!!!)
Then I caught it.
After a week and a half, I’m finally well enough to start writing again. (Still hoping to finish the novel The Dwarven Wars this month. But I’m gonna have to write a lot in order to do that.) Making forward progress is good. This is the third novel and final novel in the Clockwork Fairies trilogy. (The Clockwork Fairy Kingdom and The Maker, The Teacher, and The Monster being the first two titles.)
And then, there’s NEWS.
I have been asked to be a guest editor for the Fiction River anthology series for next year. (www.FictionRiver.com)
Here’s the blurb about the anthology series from the website:
Called “one of the best and most exciting publications in the field today” by Adventures Fantastic, Fiction River is an original anthology series. Initially, based on the anthology series of old—Universe, Orbit, Pulphouse—Fiction River rapidly evolved into its own entity. Fiction River publishes stories in many genres from all kinds of writers, with New York Times bestselling authors published alongside some of the best new voices in fiction. Fiction River also goes where no anthology series has gone before, with regular audio editions as well as ebook and trade paperback volumes that never go out of print. And Fiction River is available in English worldwide.
OMG OMG OMG SQUEEEEEEE
Seriously, I can’t tell you how honored and flattered I was by the invitation.
This is what they call an “upscale risk”. Blaze and I had to rearrange some things on our calendars, but this opportunity is so worth it.
Come January and February I’m gonna be amazingly busy. You know. Reading 1.2 million words of AMAZING fiction.
