I’m very happy to say that I received my proof copy of Life as a Moving Target yesterday and it is beautiful! I’m so excited! I have a few tweaks to finish up, but it’s pretty much done. It will release through Turtleduck Press on Dec. 1st. Here’s a little preview: https://www.createspace.com/3486326 .
What is Turtleduck Press? Well, we’re a group of writers who endeavor to publish quality fiction that skirts the edges of the standard genres. But, you ask, what does that mean? Well, our works don’t necessarily fit the standard conventions. My poetry doesn’t — it’s poetry, and it’s in a niche market. That kind of thing. I’m so excited about this I can barely stand it!
I will also be starting on another chapbook of poetry tentatively called Broken World, Mad Dreams. It explores the idea of family and betrayal, love and pain. It’s funny, but I’ve wanted to start on it since last year, but the timing wasn’t quite right. Well, now that I have a zillion things happening, I get murmurings of verse and ideas and stanzas from my muse. Usually when I can’t write any of it down. So, I might need to start getting these things down soon before they disappear.
In other news, Alpha Female is pretty much done. I need an ending, but that’s it. It’s also the first project that came close to its intended wordcount. 26k of 25k. How about that? So I have to cut some, add some, and edit the hell out of it. Hopefully before Nov. 1st. It’s going to be tight, but that’s my goal. It’s beenan interesting process. Rewriting it a total of three times and editing at the same time. Kind of crazy. But, it might just work!
So that’s what’s happening in ny crazy world. Hopefully things calm down soon and I can breathe.
