Life has been particularly active over here lately, in the form of kid's college applications, various monetary transactions juggling and a health crisis with diabetic cat. All this while I'm RIDICULOUSLY overdue with one novel and on the verge of overdue with the other. I feel horribly like I'm shorting the blog, but a reasoned post simply won't happen. Instead, I shall give a smattering of news and promise more on voice and my views on it next week.
The best news first -- I am a finalist, with two books, Soul of Fire and A Death In Gascony for the Colorado Book Award.
Nest, I now have covers and publishing dates for my next two books. The Mystery Dipped, Stripped, Dead coming out under pen name Elise Hyatt from Prime Crime this fall. And the Space Opera Darkship Thieves, from Baen, next January.
I'm incredibly proud of these two books, both of which feature feisty, if completley different female main characters.
The other bit of news is that I'm headed for Penguincon in Romulus MI the first weekend of May as a guest of honor. Come and say hello!
