State of the Canon

When I made the book list for my website I realised that in previous years I have been quite prolific. Things have changed and I do not quite have the same amount of time to devote to writing. But I am always writing something and various works are making their way through the process. There are normally some brief notes about this to be found on my webage. Works that are in the process of being written are mentioned in the right column, works that are being edited and are approaching release are mentioned at the bottom of the page.

Currently Wolfkin (werewolf, MM, high fantasy, novella) is fully edited and has its cover, and it is scheduled to come out with Samhain soon. The Nameless God (magical, MM, high fantasy, novel) is unofficially accepted by Loose Id. I have sent in the contract but not received the countersigned copy quite yet. I have the blurb and cover forms but haven't submitted them yet. That is very much on the 'to do' list (i.e. should have already been done by now). I have also finished writing the short story The Swan Prince which will be assembled with three other stories and sent to Aspen Mountain Press as a proposed sequel to the ebook Shifting Perspectives (shape shifter, MM, anthology).

What I am writing right this very day is a short story called Foolish Potions to be submitted to Freya's Bower for the anthology Dreams & Desires #3 and a novel called Freelance (sci fi, MM) whichwill probably be submitted to Loose Id. And I have not forgotten about the many sequels I need to get going on. Also in a weird break for me I am starting to make some progress on my long-shelved urban fantasy (not MM at all) the Goldiamond Paradox.

In sadder news Broken Sword has gone out of print with Torquere and next month Journey's End will follow. Broken Sword was my first novel and might be due to be retired. However I will be looking for a new home for Journey's End.

Yay! They all sound wonderful.

I envy you! One day when the kids are all in school, I will have more time to write. Until then, I struggle on with one thing at a time. You are still prolific in my eyes.
