Let us start 2009 with a writing update!
Bunny Trouble—a near-future science fiction story with cops, guns, and blood sucking sex craving aliens, along with a girl named Bunny—is in editing for Draft 3. I have decided to suck it up and finish editing Bunny Trouble this week, and finish up my query letter.
The Baby Dancers—A Young Adult Fantasy novel, is plunking along at 300 words a day. This novel has a lot of action and I am limiting myself to 80K words, so slow and steady here is going to win the race.
YOUR LITTLE SISTER—I had a dialog with Courtney Summers over a code name for her next work in progress. Her prior one was YOUR MOM, and I thought that was just so darn clever (Courtney Summers is a smart one, she is). However, Courtney, being a official little sister, emphatically declined my suggested working title.
Thus, I will unapologetically steal it and use it for my very own. Cannot copyright titles, don’t ya know!
Anyway, Your Little Sister is a murder mystery set in the future, featuring the smart, somewhat crazy ex-starship pilot—and not one but four active husbands, Lexus Toulouse.
Your Little Sister is consuming me. Your Little Sister is demanding, I stayed up too late last night working on Your Little Sister.
I have to say one thing, though. Your Little Sister is sassy and sexy. I thought I was the last person on Earth who should write a mystery novel, but I am enjoying working on Your Little Sister immensely, and hope to share some day.
Your Little Sister needs to be shared, and whom am I to deny?
