My good friend, and fellow author, Cherri Galbiati just published her first short story direct to Amazon.com this week. It is a small Christmas story called "Halo and Holly," and can be purchased on the kindle here. Way to go, Cherri!
On another front, I just hit publish on "A Memory of Me" a while back and I'll probably be showing it off tomorrow or the next day. Of course, everybody has already seen the cover since I can't keep anything a secret when it comes to my own writing, and I'm driven to rush out and show everybody as soon as I have anything. So things are getting done.
On yet another front, I managed to resolve a bit of a mental block I had where I had written myself into a corner with a story. Oddly enough, that story is my shelved novel Argiope which I wasn't even working one.
I have given up trying to figure out what rhyme or reason my mind works by, and now I just accept it when it decides to do something helpful for me...even when that help is on a completely unrelated project. This doesn't necessarily mean I'm going to pull Argiope off the shelf, not unless I get a clearer idea how I'm going forward, but now at least I know going forward is possible again. So, we'll see. That novel with big spiders, secret organizations, and killer amazons with huge guns might still see the light of day yet. Heck, I'm already forty-five thousand words into it, so it's almost half written.
Anyways, it's time to move boldly forward into the month of September, and see what we shall see.
