Yes--the revised mss is in, all 92,000 words (430+ pages) and am waiting to hear from the editor. If he thinks it's ready, it will go to the in-house editor. And maybe that will mean it can come out in Fall 2008. The window for that is Dec 2007, so I hope it's pretty close.

Anything new with the Pit Dragons?!

As far as I know, it isn't in any new anthologies, though it has been reprinted several times. I think all are OP now.

I am looking for the story, "Weaver of Tommorow". I found that it is included in the book, The Girl Who Cried Flowers. It is out of print, however. Can I find it in another book that may still be in print?

He said "Gorgeous writing, still needs work. Letter to follow." So far no letter has followed.

What did the editor have to say?!

The editor promises to read it this weekend and get back to me so I can begin revising come Monday. We will see. . .

Any new information from the editor?!

finally a breath of fresh air here. I was hoping someone here can point me in the right direction of some kind of good quality live development, motivational seminar? The ones I have seen are just way to expensive, so maybe you have some alternative suggestions. Thanks

First revision done after reader Deborah Turner Harris and I had a bashing 2 1/2 hour conversation.
The thing now stands at a touch under 90,000 words and is off to the editor.
More when I hear from him as to whether I need to scrap most of it and start again (I will expire on the spot if so) or just need to tart it up here and there.
