A Loosey Goosey Review: Stray, by Erin Lark

Sorry this is late. I was ambushed today by a were-squirrel. It wasn’t pretty, but it’s darn funny. I keep getting strange looks as I tap away on the computer, giggling. And how do you explain that? So, here’s the book cover for Stray (you can click on the link if you’d like to...

January Wordcount! Yay!

So, January is over and I made my wordcount goal. Surpassed it, actually. The only fly in the ointment is that, if it had all been in Knight, I’d be in edits right now. Only about half of it went on the one story with a deadline. Go figure. Stress, stress, stress. I wrote...

What's your Modus Operandi? Trusting Your Instincts.

I mean, how do you go about nursing the germ of an idea into a full-blown short story/novella/novel? Are you an outliner, a panzter or something in between? Me, I’m a panzter. Totally, completely.

Off to Editor Number Two!

I wasn’t sure I was going to get anything done today, since the kitten has been up throwing up since 6 am, but she fell asleep again on the couch, so I dug into my rapidly growing pile of I’m-so-behind. Just clicked send on the edited version of my contribution to the Absolute Write...

The Next Big Thing: Bite Me Tender

So, Azalea Moone tagged me in The Next Big Thing Blog Hop. Here’s my contribution to the great conga line of writing. What is the working title of your book? Oddly enough, considering how much trouble I have with titles, this one has had the same title since the beginning. Bite Me Tender seemed right for...

Apologies I should make to my editor

I’m sorry. Just how badly did you want to whack me upside the head with a thesaurus? You’re right. That really did sound weird. I’m not sure my insurance will cover your therapy though, but good luck. I’m calling shenanigans on you needing both hands and feet to count how many times I used...

The Terrors of Editing

Keep in mind that I haven’t even looked at the file yet. So I may be panicking for nothing. But I doubt it. I downloaded my emails and there it was, sitting balefully in my email box, scarier than a cornered raccoon or a politician when you try to take his expense account away....
