Nothing beats a request for more

... well, except an offer for publication! Hehehe.

Anyways, just needed to share that I received a request for a full on a short story I submitted. *does a jig* Now, its only a short story, so asking for the full is standard, but it does mean they liked the query. So... *fingers crossed*

Beach and Family Fun

Weekend at the beach! Had a great time, we took the girls to the coast, specifically Seaside, OR and stayed at Fort Stevens in the RV. Here's some pics I took with my phone camera. I apologize for the quality. Its only 1.3 megapixels on the camera.

Saphirra (age 18 months) playing in the sand at Seaside and Arrianna (age 10), posing by the Wreck of the Peter Iredale, Fort Stevens, OR.

To write is not easy

I think there is a glorified and often untruthful vision by some about the life of a writer. Its not all writing, and its not all fun.

There is ALOT of waiting. And waiting. And there is alot of critical commentary a writer must endure. Neither are something you can ignore. To be a writer you must be patient. If you're not the patient type... well, you still have to wait, so there you go. And you need thick skin. Rejection is very common. Writers learn to suffer long stretches of waiting to hear back from editors, publishers and agents. They learn to take harsh and brutal critique of their writing, because it comes by the truckload.

What's my point? Nothing... just waiting. *lol* I currently have one novel and one short story out on submission and desperate for responses. Hehehe.

Amazon and MacMillan are crazy!!

About the whole debate between Amazon and MacMillan over the price of eBooks. I think both of them are insane if they think I will buy a digital eBook for $9.95 or $14.95. I'll run down to Barnes and Noble and get the paperback for $7.99.

The whole BS that Amazon can't profit on $9.95 eBooks is sheer folly. Printed books cost more and they sell them for less... and still profit, so there's a huge BS sticker on their claim. MacMillan wants to sell eBooks for $14.95 in place of hardcovers and that seems a bit steep, but understandable that they are trying to cover their advance to the author.

But I won't be paying anything close to that for an eBook... my own included! *lol*

The wild ride continues

So, I find myself not having enough brain space to notate all the short story ideas my muse is flinging at me. Anyone ever had that problem? So I started jotting them down in my notepad. I doubt I'll ever have the time to get to them all, but sure alot of fun coming down the pike!
