Fun! and win Home Work in paperback
This has been just a fun week so far!
First I got to see a rough version of the cover for my upcoming Samhain book, Sole Support. Yes, the book still isn’t coming out until June, but Samhain is always waaaay out in front with everything. I like this cover a lot.
Second, I wrote a lot on Life Lessons #4 in the last few days, and I’m 2/3 done with the book. I’m still trying to figure out which loose ends have to be tied up. But it’s coming together and now I know who dunnit – always a watershed moment for me when writing (and yes, it took this long for me to know. Plotting? What is this advance plotting of which you speak? Finding out as I go along is part of the fun of writing – like reading, only better.)
I got some nominations on Jessewave’s “Favorite M/M Author in 2012″, alongside Amy Lane and Harper Fox and Jordan Castillo Price. I doubt I’ll make it into the final five, but it is such a thrill to see the nominations. I’m so glad my books are making people happy.
And I just won a free book in a drawing there.
And finally, I got the author print copies of Home Work. MLR press was changing their process for print books and mine got lost in there somewhere. There is a special thrill in holding the paper version of one of my books and realizing I wrote that. Very cool!
In celebration, I’m going to do a random drawing for one of those print copies – here and on my Goodreads blog. Leave a comment between now and 10 AM EST on Saturday January 12th, and I will randomly draw one name for a signed copy of Home Work – Life Lessons #3. No restrictions for location. **This is the third book in a series, and should be read in order.** I will contact the winner on the weekend for a mailing address.
And now back to working on Life Lessons #4, which doesn’t have a title yet, but now has a complete plot. Sometimes this writing gig is just so much fun!
ETA: The winner of the signed paper copy of Home Work is Icedave (comment #9 on the Goodreads blog).
I’ll contact the winner by PM. Thanks everyone for commenting and entering the drawing.
