Can I have a yay?

Have just sent The Wild Ways -- an Emporium sequel from Charlie's point of view -- off to the editor and the agent. Yes, it was due the middle of last month. Hush.

101,646 words as it now stands

Next, I have a story for the new Valdemar anthology to finish ASAP (it may be a little, um, late) then a story from the Valor 'verse, then it's back into the not-the-Napoleonic werewolves book. (after that, I'm intending more Valor books riffing off the end of Truth but it's too early to say for certain that's what's going to happen)

I've had word that legal ebooks of the Blood books (as opposed to everything else currently on the web) should be available in about three weeks. Remember, these books were written LONG before ebooks existed so the contracts had to be reworked and then the books themselves had to be converted to the correct format(s). Everyone who waited has my eternal gratitude. So does everyone who dl'd the illegal versions but is now planning to dl the legal versions as soon as they're available.

I'm now heading off to town to pay my land taxes and buy a caffinated lottery ticket (Canadian reference) then, when I get home, I'm going to finally watch the last aired episode of Supernatural, I might even take a look at what Netflix has on offer, and TOMORROW I'm going to tell you all about how we have to rebuild our house. From the ground up. It's a fun story. Sort of. Ish. Okay, not really.

Exits stage left.

YAYYYYYYYY! for sending the book off to the publisher.

Um, not-so-yay for rebuilding the house?

(Damn, there really needed to be another season of Blood Ties, if only for your house's sake.)

Also, Wh00h00!

Heh. caffeinated lottery ticket. Heh. good luck!
14th-Mar-2011 07:35 pm (UTC) - Yaaayyyy!
You can have a Yaaayyyyyy!! Muppet flail style and you can also have a *Squeee!* Definitely both for the book, I don't envy you the house. I've lived through too many of my parents rebuilds, but they do that because they are bored.
You are one of my favorite authors, and I always look forward to new ones from you, so I'll make a note of this one. Also, I've been looking for the Blood books in eBook for a while, so that's great news! Good luck with the lottery!

Ohhh! *sets countdown for three weeks later* (Yes, I'm getting them, even if I have hard copies of all of them that you can sign another time... ;) )
14th-Mar-2011 07:38 pm (UTC)
Enjoy Supernatural! ;)
14th-Mar-2011 07:41 pm (UTC)
Yay for the e-books and just in time for the other half to buy me an e-reader!

(I think I am excited!)
14th-Mar-2011 07:45 pm (UTC) - Can I have a yay?
I see your yay, and raise you two huzzahs! Can hardly wait to put the blood books on my Nook! Have fun watching Supernatural and good luck with rebuilding your house. :)
14th-Mar-2011 07:50 pm (UTC) - Yay
With a capital Y
14th-Mar-2011 07:51 pm (UTC)
You can have a yay!


Also, I'm wincing in anticipation of the rebuilding the house tale. Ouch?
14th-Mar-2011 07:52 pm (UTC)
The majority of my books--including the Blood books--have been in storage in Chicago for over 7 years now. I am completely excited to hear they'll be available as ebooks!

re: the house, not so much. :( Bummer.

re: Blood books as ebooks - OMGYAY!!! Not that I already don't have all the print copies, but ebooks, FTW!! I can haz them WITH me! ::marks calendar::

A very big YAY for Wild Ways - loved Enchantment Emporium, and am excited to read more in this 'verse!
14th-Mar-2011 08:02 pm (UTC)
WOOHOO! Henry Fitzroy on my Kindle!
14th-Mar-2011 08:03 pm (UTC)
Yay! And holy shit, how many people am I going to *know* who are rebuilding their houses, man?

For the record, I am watching you all for tips. ::nods::
14th-Mar-2011 08:04 pm (UTC)
YAY! for book.
YAY! for Valor.
YAY! for e-books.

So not yay for rebuilding.
14th-Mar-2011 08:13 pm (UTC)
Whoo hoo! New stuff! Congrats!
14th-Mar-2011 08:22 pm (UTC)
Woohoo for another Emporium book!!

Enjoy your Tim's, and good luck (I'm 2-2 on Rrroll up the Rrrim so far, not sure where the luck came from, lol)

Also enjoy SPN!

Yay! I hope your rebuild goes smoothly and comes in under cost (I know, I know, but I can wish it for you, right?)

14th-Mar-2011 08:41 pm (UTC)
Yay indeed - I wanted an Emporium sequel as soon as I turned the last page of the first volume.
14th-Mar-2011 09:17 pm (UTC)
I am pleased to hear of the new book. Yay, indeed.
14th-Mar-2011 09:50 pm (UTC)
Sure--yay! for the book. Hmmm-illegal copies If they're Valor books, I have paper (legal!) already.

Don't get me started on house expenses. We've been living in the same house in what used to be country for 37 years. Had it painted it once. You think it needs it?

As for Netflix--just finished watching Inside Job. Worth watching for anybody. Will have you writing down a list of US cabinet people, bankers (often the same) and academics for God's sake, who really need to be shot. You will also have a much clearer idea of where the recession came from.

I am very much looking forward to The wild Ways as I loved The Enchanted Emporium.
