On Writing Links...and Facing Fire.



Behind as usual, I'd still like to leave you with a few tid-bits for today.

John Scalzi helps to build a little author confidence, by talking about how a manuscript hires people. Read this a few days ago, but has more resonance for me today...since I've just sent in my edits for my fall novel. [Yippee!]


In some cases, however, a manuscript can get you yarded off a plane and hauled down the to the police station.  Sending good thoughts and a fist in the air to fellow author Liao Yiwu.

And finally, CanWrite 2010 is in Victoria this year, and I'll be one of the speakers. I think their registration is just about ready to open... Check it out HERE.

We will be thrilled to read the follow-up to Walk through the Window. MY 9 year old daughter, Chloe, loves Darby, and can't wait for our evening installments. She is now contemplating who/what Gabe 'really' is. I've never seen her hang onto a novel like she is with this one. She doesn't read ahead, she waits so we can read to gether. Fun. A big thanks from both of us!

Lorrie, your comment totally made my day. Thank you! Would love to hear what Chloe thinks of the story when you've finished.
