This and that (and “The Revisionist”, by the way)
So this past week was not nearly the kind of progress I’d been hoping to make, but that’s sometimes the way it is and I’m hoping to make a better dent in things this coming week. The oppressive (for Maine, at least) heat and humidity has broken for a couple days and that always helps, though it’s supposed to get hotter again…blech.
In other news, the No Good Deed tour is still going strong, with some great reviews, as well as some interviews and guest posts. There are also some giveaways for a signed epub copy of NGD still going, so be sure to put your name in the hat for those:
Relatedly, No Good Deed now joins Hell Hath No Fury on the digital shelves of BarnesAndNoble.com and the Apple iTunes store, so be sure to check them out. And, of course, they’re both available at Smashwords, and at Amazon*.
And at Smashwords and Amazon, you will also find The Revisionist, a novelette (about 40 pages) I wrote. I’ve been at a loss for how to label it (magical realism/contemporary fantasy/psychological thriller), but it was born of a challenge from a writer friend of mine who told me to stop complaining about the things I was complaining about and start writing about them*. I was skeptical at first, but, as with most good ideas, it very quickly took on a life of its own. I tried very hard to keep the story short, but it refused to listen. There may be a larger book in there at some point, but I think it stands very well on its own as it is, and I fear diluting it with filler. And being a novelette, it’s only 99 cents***!
Alright, now to get a cup of tea and as much Hell Hath No Fury re-read before that amazing baby of ours wakes up again :)
* Shameless plug, admittedly.
** Though he used far nicer and more tactful language than that to avoid bruising my tender ego.
*** Even more shameless plug. I really ought to be ashamed of myself.
