December 15-16, 2009:

Okay, I will admit it. I was wrong about the shut down of publishing for the holidays. This is what happened in the past two days:

I sold three fantasy poems to Asimov’s. PW gave a rave review to my upcoming fantasy novel, Except the Queen (go to co-author Midori Snyder’s website In The Labyrinth to see it) and the SF Book Club  took the book as well as an alternate selection. The editor of The Emily Sonnets sent me the edited manuscript thoughtfully done), the assistant editor on Lost Boy: The Story of J. M. Barrie sent me the f&gs (gorgeous).


So I worked on the following over the two days: going carefully twice over all the Emily Sonnets questions and changes asked for (most but not all taken, or slightly altered). Went over the latest editorial stuff on Sister Bear and sent it off. Rewrote version #9 of Mermaid Who Loved a Pirate and sent it to my agent. Worked quite a bit on the poems for Lunch Bunch with Jason.

And I also hosted the writer’s meeting, bought a side table for my living room in the forlorn effort to bring it into the twentieth century, if not the 21st, and did another SKYPE presentation, this time for a group of third graders in Chicago. Watched the movie “Up” which I thought wonderfully done though I resisted it as sentimental for the first fifteen minutes and then was absolutely roped in.
