The Tokyo set liaisons story is gone and hopefully now sitting on the editor's desk. Crit partner liked it, which is a good start, I just hope the editor feels the same way.
Meanwhile, I'm battling it out with the "Bloody Novel". This is not the actual title, but it is rather an apt one. I've already written two opening scenes for this one, but there was something not quite right about them. Luckily, I've realised that the problem was I was starting in the wrong place, and that the characters need a more immediate and engaging goal that just staying out of trouble. I hope I now have a much stronger opening planned out (yet to write it).
This new angle has also created a role for a new character. Hm, I love new characters, there's so much scope for fun. Actually, there are two new characters turning up near the start of this book. I don't know much about them yet besides their names and a few odd titbits, but I'm looking forward to finding out about them.
Oh, and I love one of them already because his appearance gives rise to a bit of dialogue from Blaze that just cracks me up. It probably won't have the same effect on anyone else, but then, I'm easily amused.
On the news front - it looks as if Phantasmagoria will be available as an ebook at some point soon, and I've had a lovely review of Passion of Isis - click here to read more -
