Jennifer asks if I have read The Silver Medal Lover by Tanith Lee.
A: No. No I have not. And reading the Amazon Editorial Review, I will now. Thanks!
Your comment on Louis L’Amour brought back memories. I chewed through all of those books, several times. My favorites were the Sackett series. The one where a Sackett brothers’ wife was murdered just tore me up, I remember setting the book down several times and just going for a walk. And the last book, Lonely on the Mountain, in which the same character was such an interesting person, but you could tell, if you read the books previous, he was a deeply wounded man.
Or something like that. It has been over twenty years. I loved those little novels, and his sense of American justice and family sticks with me to this day.
Oh, then there is the book about the people who lived in the US before the Indians. Now that was a great book with a researched setting!
Cassie wants to know how long she has to wait for the next Lexus novel.
A: Depends. Four to six months. Summer is approaching and the kids are more active outside.
But I could see novel number two taking only four months to write.
I am convinced Armageddon’s Princess is more desirable to an agent than Bunny Trouble, my previous effort. Mainly because the pace is faster and its broader appeal as science fiction rather than near-future sci fi. Armageddon’s Princess also stands alone. Bunny Trouble, does not. There are two other books in the trilogy to complete the story.
I am on an accelerated path to finding an agent to Armageddon’s Princess. One minor burp is finding another beta reader or two who has not read Bunny Trouble. That is proving somewhat difficult. I may just abuse my prior readers and send it out.
Gary Corby stops by after a long writing spurt to say hello.
Hi Gary! Is your book out yet?!?!?
Ruzkin says slow down.
Can’t. The older I get, the more writing energy I have!
Still not too late for any questions. Tomorrow is Monday, however, and I have to dive back into work. Pay the bills and all of that.
