I received a contract offer from Dreamspinner Press today for my almost-long-enough-to-be-a-novel-but-not-quite novella A Blinded Mind. This is a story that I wrote for NaNoWriMo, and it's really pretty dark considering my usual fare, but also much more structurally complex. Which is not to say I'm shooting for the Pulitzer of erotica here, but I'm really happy it's going to be published.
Of course, I did end it with something of a cliffhanger. Which means I'll have to do a sequel eventually if it sells. Which, as my regular visitors know, is not my strong suit. I can write good sequels, but writing them in good time...yeah, I tend to fall down on that front. So why do I do this to myself, leave plots and characters hanging? Poor planning, latent love and inspiration for improvement. And alliteration, I get a huge kick out of that:) Anyway, more soon about the release.
In other areas of my life, it looks like my darling man will have not just a job but a good, tecnhologically and creatively interesting job when we get back to America, if, y'know, congress passes a budget. So, um...what's the hold-up? C'mon, Congress! You can do it! Pass that budget! Yeah!
I swear, I haven't been drinking.
