My review of Karen Amanda Hooper's Tangled Tides can be found here.
Phew, I'm glad November's over. Time to sit back and relax, right? Well, not quite. Here are November's stats:
Rejections: 1 (Although they said they wanted to keep my story in mind if they have other anthologies)
Word count: 76,136 (Thank you very much, NaNoWriMo)
Pages edited: 103
Also, last week, two anthologies with my stories became available. My horror story "Wishes" is in Under the Stairs, published by Wicked East Press. To purchase: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Pill Hill Press Book Shoppe. My friend and critique partner Christine Rains also has a story in this anthology.
My flash piece "Snow Storm" is in Daily Flash 2012, published by Pill Hill Press's imprint Daily Flash Publications. To purchase: Amazon and Pill Hill Press Book Shoppe. My friend Nicole Zoltack also has flash pieces in this anthology.
I have a lot of things I want to do in December, so if I get a fourth of them accomplished, then I'll feel like I'm ahead. *laughs* First up, I'm finishing my NaNoWriMo book two, The Last Prophetess. I'm continuing edits on The Phoenix Prophetess and I plan to start editing/revising Starred on December 15th. I also have some short stories to write for The Foxwick Chronicles: Women of Foxwick and proceed to do what I can to self-publish it in January/February. If time allows, I'll also begin working on my paranormal thriller with romantic elements titled Confessions of a Telekinetic.
I do have a client's manuscript I'm editing, but I quit my editing job for the small publisher I was working for. I hated to do it, but between that and doing work for individual clients I wasn't getting enough time for my own work. Plus, I can make more money for individual clients than what I was getting paid from the small publisher. So my main focus will be on my own work, and I'll take on a client here and there to supplement my income and keep my editing skills sharp. I do like to help out. :)
So what are you up to this December?
