Still sick, but happy

Thanks to everyone for their well-wishes and/or alien mucus-harvesting commiseration.


Writing Stuff

Having a very good sales month! Just found out that the editor liked the rewrite I did of "The Wizard of Eternal Watch and the Keeper of Forever" and he wants to buy it for his Razor-edged Arcanum anthology. Hurray!

In less "yay" news:
4-day "it was well received but . . . " from Lenox Ave.
105-day "not for us" from Feral Fiction.

But y'know, the sting of rejection is pretty toothless after a series of juicy sales.

Still oozing mucus. Returning to bed.
I'm feeling:
sick but happy

Hey, those Feral Fiction guys have been hard at work. They "no'd" one of mine, too.

Eugie: Trying to send you email, but both addresses I've tried (your personal site one and your Tangent one) have bounced back to me.

Can you drop me a line, please? Thanks.

Hey, I thought you might find this interesting: "How much does a SF/Fantasy author make?"
He did a survey on genre advances, and had 74 authors respond

Thanks! I saw on Tobias' blog when he was sending out calls for authors to fill out his survey. Very interesting. And makes me very inclined to seek out an agent!
