    one last chance!

    There’s one last chance to win an early copy of WALKING DEAD over at Book Love Affair! Go forth, participate!

    I have written the beginning and the end of “Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight” to my satisfaction. Unfortunately, that leaves some five or ten thousand words in the middle that haven’t been done…

    Argh. I keep thinking of things to post, but by the time I come sit down to write them up I’ve forgotten already. Or they’re things I want to talk about but can’t yet. Grr.

    miles to Minas Tirith: 526.3
    ytd wordcount: 197,200

    link salad, maybe

    The Book Love Affair blog is running an Urban Fantasy Awards contest & give-away, and has included the Walker Papers in her line-up. The way to participate is by leaving comments, and I’ve just offered to send an early copy of WALKING DEAD to one of the winners there, so if you want another chance at it, go participate! Also, well, I’d really kind of like to see a good showing in one of these things, because my books more or less never get nominated for any of these sorts of things (I find it amusing, ironic, and appropriate that she has URBAN SHAMAN down as an example for the “most overlooked” category, see), so, well. *makes eyes for people go to participate*

    This NatGeo photograph is one of the most amazing pictures I’ve ever seen.

    Okay, that wasn’t as link salady as I thought it might be. That’s okay.

    Off to finish revisions now. I hope.
