Did you know I’m going on my first ever cruise on December the 4th-9th this year? At the moment I’m in the middle of deadlines (in the Day Job and as a writer), so I’ve only been sticking my head up out of the water to create this website, work or play at conventions…or rupture eardrums while battling a month-long case of pneumonia (wee!). But I added a page to my website about the cruise (which launches from Miami), and wanted to let my writer friends know, because not only could they bunk with another student to save on costs, bring several guests with them, or simply hang out with meeeeeee on the beautiful beaches of the Bahamas,there is this totally awesome workshop faculty they can learn how to get published and have one-on-one meals with:
I already love my job—I mean, I create books. What’s not to love?—but to be able to help run a writing workshop on the Norwegian Sky cruise ship is the icing on the cake. This will be its fifth year running(!!!), and is limited to only 22 students, so it makes for a much more interactive learning environment. Combine that with the chance to make story sales (to Galaxy’s Edge), and being able to network in exotic location.. now wonder it’s called Sail to Success!
I have to get my head out of the clouds and get to some real work, but click here to find out more or learn how to sign yourself up!
Welcome to my first ever blog, on my brand new website!
I am launching my website today, with absolutely stunning artwork by Robert Rogalski! Feel free to click through all the pages and leave comments, when/where inclined. You can see my covers and illustrations, my upcoming convention appearances and books, and there are panel videos to watch and audio files of my stories to listen to!
Aside from setting up my website, I have had a very busy couple of weeks since attending Balticon. I am in the process of getting three of my own books ready to go to press at Phoenix Pick and Hadley Rille Books (with another two to publish soon after!). The first book to be published is Soulmates, which is a collection of short stories and novelettes written with Mike Resnick. Here is the gorgeous cover by Juan Miguel Aguilera:
The book is titled after our novelette of the same name, which originally sold to Asimov’s, was sold another dozen times to countries around the world, and was nominated for three SF awards (winning one of them!).
Despite that, we think that the book’s opening piece, “Benchwarmer”, is the better of the two (it also won its own award!). We hope we’re on the right track when our copyeditor says the story made her cry. <grin>
The book is slated to have a pre-launch at MidAmeriConII, in August! I will update with more details once I know. It’s time for tea, chocolate, and more words!
