Plugging away

I'm almost finished with Chapter three of the second draft of my current novel, tentatively titled "The Slideways Jalousie". Actually, I only wrote about 20,000 words of the first draft before I decided the story needed major revisions and started over at the beginning, keeping some portions intact. So maybe draft 1.5 would be more accurate. Also, I'm pulling out an older story I wrote and working on a second draft of that. That one's titled "Think of the Children". Back to work.

Blog dedication and first post

This blog was created in response to the news that I've made my first professional writing sale. It's a short story entitled "Kairos", which will be appearing in the January 2009 issue of Beyond Centauri. BC is a sci-fi/fantasy magazine geared towards kids and young adults. I'll have more details about when and where you can pick up a copy as the publication date approaches.
