Reenergized

Right, after some months of benign neglect, I am ready to get back to work on RoseThorn, to do those final tasks that have been waiting patiently. Not that I haven't been working. I've done some short stories and made about 20k in progress on each of my next two books (that's 40k words), and have been reading and starting to do reviews. All along, however, I've been letting ideas percolate. Now I'm ready.

So, what's up?

Illustration. Starting to do concept sketches for a series of charcoal and colored pencil landscapes; yep I know I suck at figure drawing, my strength has always been landscape and still life. So that's what I'm going with to get started. Aerlie. The Vale. The Tower at Hazsu. The Tower of Azcalon. Kestrelrock. And two views of the City from the Citadel (basically a before and after).

I'll post updates as the drawings come along.

Hey it's Mage- from SFFWorld. Are you doing that whole thing with the website? Because if you are I'd be happy to read some--if not all--of your story. The excerpts are intriguing.

Good luck with your work!

Hey Mage, it kind of depends on whether the agent that has the manuscript takes on the project. I figure that I owe her the chance to make up her own mind rather than me pulling things before I hear from her. That being said, she's had the MS for about six months now, so it should not be long before I hear something.

In the meanwhile I'm doing some artwork and final-really final edits. I have a CG artist friend who will do the cover art if and when I give him the go. Once I decide to do it it should not take long to lay everything out and design a website. If it goes live then I'll let you know.

Oh, and thanks for the thumbs up!
