I mention this because various friends and relatives have been asking me lately, "What's up with those books? Didn't you have books on the way? Aren't they out yet?"
Both my publishers are still alive and well, which some friends were wondering after what happened with Drollerie Press. The queues at both presses are still moving along, and my books are still in them. From time to time, there's something I get to do to help the books progress, but mostly I concentrate on the next short fiction project, and the next, while I wait for the ball to be back in my court. Tonight I'm working out the details of what criminal misconduct would look like in the Faerie equivalent of the IRS. My current draft of the fairy abduction story isn't disturbing enough. More creepiness! Bring on the uncanny! Then make it pay taxes!
If by November I'm not yet in a new house, and therefore don't have a base of operations from which to start the tutoring business back up, I'll probably do Nanowrimo this year and finish the Little Book. The Big Book seems still to be in the running at a major press that had an open reading period--I never give up on the Big Book.
I may be crammed into my husband's childhood bedroom along with my kids and most of my belongings that aren't in storage, but dammit, I'm working.
