The Journey of Heart of Stone 0.2

     This week in formatting:  Got the galleys back from Rob Siders.  He sent the galleys in a Kindle file attached to his email.  He also sent an example of edits to a galley file in an attached .pdf.  I loaded the first onto my Kindle and paged through it to see how it looked.
     I got a chill from the excitement of seeing Rob's beautiful work.  I really did.
     All squadrons at Officer Training School displayed their mottoes on their banners.  I recall that one squadron had the motto 'The Standard Is Excellence.'  From what I have seen, Rob Siders lives up to that squadron's motto.  I like that.
     This week in cover art:  No news.

     The Monday crush is getting to me.  Sometimes I don't dig out of the Monday hole until 6pm Wednesday. 
     The worst part is that the crush causes delays in my writing schedule.  My daily goal is 1,000 words.  I have not met that goal in . . . well, I'm not gonna tell you how long.  That would embarass me.  And now I have galleys to review. 
     The next novel to be written is Navel of the Moon.  Think of it as Harlequin romance science fiction.
     After Navel of the Moon will come a thriller, Radio Winnemucca.  Along the way and assuming I can get cover art for them, I shall publish some shorts (less than 7,500 words) and longs (more than 7,500 words).

     Joe Konrath posted an exceptional exchange between him and Barry Eisler.  Will do you good to read it.

  1. Hanging around thriller writers reminds me why I like hanging around romance writers. Then I go hang with the romance writers for awhile, and I'm reminded why I like hanging around thriller writers. :s
