A respectable number of submissions this month, but I’m mostly waiting on responses. Patience is a virtue, particularly in the writing world. So are stubbornness and a thick skin. Two publications coming next month, though, and there were a few cool items that don’t fall into the standard report.
The Muse, my novel of inspiration divine and diabolical will be featured in April’s Christian Fiction Review Blog Book Tour.
I was invited to provide an article on the Fantasy genre for a month-long American Christian Fiction Writers blog event, “All About Genre.” 22 writers will be presenting their “take” on writing all manner of fiction–check it out all through April on Ms. Peg Phifer’s blog, http://goaheadandwearthepurple.blogspot.com/. My article will appear on April 16.
I was also interviewed for an upcoming book about Christian writers of speculative fiction. The list of interviewees includes a couple of very notable names with whom I never imagined I might be sharing a Table of Contents. Expected publication date is early 2011. More details as they develop.
