Updates!

Things have been busy around here, as readers of my other websites are aware. Nevertheless, that's no excuse for not giving a few status updates.

First, Maelstrom is still on track for release from L&L Dreamspell sometime this year. We finished edits last fall and I'm waiting now for a book cover and a release date. In the meantime, I continue to post short stories at the official Maelstrom site and you can download a free book of my favorite Maelstrom flash fiction from Scribd: Maelstrom Madness

Second, I've done a couple of recent editing passes on both the novel and the short stories at the Steal Tomorrow site. The timing with my little self-published novel was unfortunate - I was just getting into the swing of things, trying to promote it, when we got hit with a hurricane. Living an ad hoc life without electricity for a week cooled my enthusiasm for post-apocalyptic speculative fiction. It took more than a year for me to get fired up about this novel again, but the new version is now posted and available in print and download, and I'm regularly adding new flash fiction about the characters. Check out the Steal Tomorrow site for details!

Finally, I think it's worth noting here that I've officially entered the twenty-first century by becoming an e-book reader. I've never been a Luddite, but I'm not one to throw money around casually, either. Early adopters seem to pay the highest prices for the buggiest goods, while those us who wait get a better deal. Patience has paid off and I've inherited a BlackBerry from my husband, who switched to an iPhone. I wasn't sure how I would like reading on the tiny BlackBerry screen, but it suits me fine. I'm now officially an e-book enthusiast. Look for some of my stories to show up on Smashwords at some point in the near future! Reading should be cheap and stress-free, so I want to make my fiction easily accessible, no matter what one's preferred format may be.

I'll be posting here more regularly, now that Maelstrom is getting closer to release, so add me to your blog reader!
