Blood Of Our Fathers: Update & other news
I meant to get Heroes Book 2, Blood of Our Fathers to my editor yesterday (figuratively) but I haven't yet. I'm shooting for within the week though.
In some ways I have wondered if you just can't force it and some special insights have to come at the right time-but then again I don't want to get off schedule too bad.
I am pleased at some of the story that has only presented itself very recently-like Heroes, some things were added last minute-and they seemed to be things people really liked-so I look at it as all for the greater good.
In other news
I am nominated for a Whitney Award-whether I am a total finalist waits on early next years announcements.
I will be in the Rogue Blades Entertainment: Challenge Anthology ~Discovery
What rank my story "The Serpent's Root" is in that contest also remains to be seen-but in any case my second Saphir story will shortly be in print.
Back to my first Saphir story "Song of Saphir" won first place in a readers contest for the LDSP YA short story contest-that is still supposed to be in a anthology but it has been delayed, I'm not sure how long until it will be printed.
coming up within the next year
Blood of our Fathers: Heroes of the Fallen Book 2
Roar of the Crowd~"Whispers of the Goddess"
Shadows and Light 2~"The Hand of Fate"
Challenge Antho:~"The Serpent's Root"
and I have high hopes for my inclusion in the following anthologies~ RBE's Assassins, Historical Lovecraft, Wandering Weeds, Cutlass and Musket, Swords and Mythos, and Monsters & Mormons at the least, I am sure there are many more I'll want to be a part of but all of those mentioned will be an exciting kickoff for 2011.
