What We’ve Been Up To:

8 02 2009

Busy days.

Editing:

I am slowly working my way through submissions.

Writing:

I’ve been working on a themed flash collection/serialized novel set in the same world as "The Last Wet Place." The second story in the series, "The Dreamer Awakes," is scheduled to be published 2/12/09 by Everyday Weirdness. So far, I have completed about 8 stories in this series (roughly 7100 words).  My goal is for the finished collection to be in the 50,000-70,000 word range which feels about right for this type of work. It has been a lot of fun so far.

I also received word this week that my short story, "Embrace," will be published in an upcoming issue of M-Brane magazine. Good stuff!

I started tossing out my first tentative pitches to agents regarding my YA trilogy over the last few weeks. I found this to be scary stuff…sending out my baby into the void. Anyone know any good agents that might be interested in handling a contemporary dark fantasy set in the rural southeastern US? Any leads would be extremely appreciated.

Family:

Update on my oldest son — so far we are just waiting. We’ve completed several different surveys over the last few weeks regarding his behavior and social skills. I have to say I was surprised by the surveys. They seemed really superficial in many ways. All too often, there seemed to be no way to answer these questions adequately as written. Many of his behaviors are situational, and I do not feel the authors of the surveys took that situational aspect into account. Maybe a short answer format would work better than multiple choice? I think that could create a more cohesive picture of the child being diagnosed. In addition to the surveys, the school is performing a hearing/vision screening just to make sure there are no issues there we might be unaware of.

Yesterday, my oldest had his last basketball game of the season. We took him to Olive Garden to celebrate and then took the boys to the zoo to enjoy the spring-like weather we’re currently experiencing here in the South. It was a great day!
 
Today, I plan on getting some work done and then taking the boys outside after my youngest finishes his nap.

Funny item in the Grand Rapids Press the other day. I had been worried about how the excellent local zoo was doing in this economy. Turns out attendance is WAY up — people are not travelling as much for entertainment and movies and such are expensive. So the zoo offers entertainment for as long as you want, and it’s educational, too.

Who knew?

The zoo was packed yesterday. People were having to park on the street leading to the parking lot. I need to renew my membership at some point. We really do have a great zoo here in Birmingham.

Congratulations on the new sale!

I hate things that limit context like multiple choice when the situations play a major factor in the response/action in question.

Congrats on the end of the season. I love the weather we are having. It was so cold last week to have warmed up this much.

Take it easy. Good luck with the pitches. We will all be here cheering you on.

Yes. The warm weather has been nice after recent freezing temps. However, I’d like one more shot of cold air with a couple inches of snow for the boys sometime before winter ends.

The legit agent makes money if/when he or she sells your work.

“I’ve been working on a themed flash collection/serialized novel set in the same world as “The Last Wet Place.” “

Sounds like an interesting project–I’d definitely pick it up!

“I started tossing out my first tentative pitches to agents regarding my YA trilogy over the last few weeks.”

Good for you! The first agent who springs to mind is Jim McCarthy, agent to Carrie Ryan, who has _The Forest of Hands and Teeth_ coming out in March. You might take a look at his stated interests on the agency’s website:
