Yes, Virginia, thanks to the gracious and timely intervention of Deb McGowan (a talented writer in her own right) at Inroad Publishing, there is a Santa Claus. Well, there is, but actually, I was going to say there is now a beautifully formatted epub version of FATAL SHADOWS: THE COLLECTOR'S EDITION.
It's up for preorder most places excepting Amazon, and it will be going live December 16th (on Amazon as well as everywhere else).
I CAN'T BEGIN TO TELL YOU WHAT A RELIEF THAT IS.
Anyway, while I continue to struggle with the concept of a collector's edition that can't actually be collected, I struggled more with the idea that a whole heck of a lot of Adrien English fans couldn't afford the collector's edition.
In short, another one gets checked off the list.
Also, I'm going to go ahead and do the Advent Calendar this year, so if anyone has any contributions, send 'em on over. I don't know for sure there will be codas from me. I hope there will be, but Lament at Loon Landing HAS to be done this year. I've already lost nearly a full week of writing due to prepping for Thanksgiving. Why do I always imagine I'm going to be able to write during a week spent doing everything from rushing to get the last fall plants in the ground to polishing silver? How does dinner for twelve turn into a marathon of what amounts to gathering nuts for the winter.
(Er, I don't mean my family are nuts. They are, but that's not my point.)
I'm sure there's other news, but that's plenty for now. I still have strings of outdoor lights to untangle, a lost birthday present to track down from Amazon, three rose bushes and one hawthorne plant to transplant, Advent Calendar posts to write... And hopefully another couple of chapters to write...
