Oddly disjointed and a trifle melancholy

Or in other words, a grab bag of things.

LiveJournal changed the way posts and comments are shared. At first I didn't really notice it. Sure I read about the fact that the connection to Facebook had changed, as well as a connection to Twitter, but I honestly didn't think about it. Here in this journal I'm looking for maximum exposure so I said "give me all ya got LJ!" But apparently it's troubling for those of us with private LiveJournals. :O Not really sure what to make of it all yet.

Coming up on three weeks of waiting on P&L. Don't get me wrong, I did expect the wait, and I know it's not over yet. In fact, I expect to be waiting another month or so. I just get impatient over things like this. A similar thing happened last year when I waited from mid February all the way 'til late July for The King's Tale. Unfortunately the limbo-like state of waiting tends to mildly depress me. Given my overly sensitive nature it's not surprising.

On the Dreamspinner Press blog they are holding a contest. Starting yesterday, and for the rest of the month of September there's an author trivia contest. Each day they post a new question and you are to find the answers somewhere in their impressive 200 pages of author biographies. I don't think I'll be included in the contest because I don't have a book published this year. YET! But, it won't be out by the end of September in any case.

Speaking of that, the September 2010 GLBT Bookshelf Rummage Sale is still going on. With help from Serena Yates, I managed to get my contribution "Touched" listed at Good Reads so if you happen to buy it (for only a dollar!) and want to leave a rating I'd be thrilled ;)

I've noticed that The King's Tale is doing quite well at AllRomance eBooks this month. That always brings a smile to my face.

And finally, my sequel for The King's Tale is percolating along quite nicely. I have a day and a half left on my unexpected vacation so I'm hoping to complete chapter eight. The problem with writing an outline is that then you have to connect the dots. I feel possessed by the story, truly. It's there in my head all the time and I picture it so vividly. Just having a hard time getting the words out of my head and on to the paper!

I'm pretty sure I know how to finish chapter eight today, so we'll see how it goes. Christopher is such a naughty boy. I think he's giving me an ulcer.
