I've been slowly slowly editing through Squire Hayseed, and took the time to make a full book cover.

Wow. Nice cover and nice settings. I'm assuming that they're 3D renderings, but they look really good.

I thought to try making a little sci-fi movie for all my Dwarves in Space books.

At first I thought those were Dwarves In Space candy bars. :lol:

You should do an actual Dwarves In Space movie. Kickstarter! :twocents:

5k words done on Hyperlight 9, just under. :) Something RJ said a while back has been percolating in my brain and just came to the fore - I know where this tale is going now. Which is good, considering I just wrote chapter 15 and 16. :p

I did some research and musing on the sexy Leprechaun story today. I sent away for their Halloween anthology so I could have an idea of what they might want. Luckily the story doesn't have to be done until the 28th-- I just have to sign up by the 15th. And the limit is 20k? That's like forty pages! :lol:

You did indeed. :) You wondered if we'd be seeing REDACTED again, I said no at the time but now I think we will. :)

I woke up this morning and realized I should be making a back-up of Murder the World's re-write. :unsure:

Another 2.5k done, and the REDACTED have arrived. Our heroes aren't quite sure what they are. :D

Oh, and Charashi is in command of the Asimov. :D

Good grief. I should pay more attention to what I say. :unsure:

Ah, the villains in this one are the politicians. :D

My copy of Halloween Between The Sheets arrived today, so I'll be reading Porn tonight-- strictly for research.

There are a couple things. One, this one isn't reverse harem while all of the halloween one was and two, the story for this has to be stand alone. For the Halloween one they just accept excerpts and the like.

Okay, those are good to know. I wondered about the Reverse Harem thing, and the story that I read all the way through definitely felt like a deleted scene from a larger work. The odd thing about the Halloween book is that it has no table of contents, which makes it hard to find something I might find especially useful. Ah, well, I'll give it a shot. I'm sure to be rejected, but what have I got to lose? :lol:

The die is cast. I submitted my form. Now I have two weeks to come up with something, assuming they're even interested in me.

Good luck! It took them about a week or so to get back to me the first time.

I signed up for an online book con, and one of the things is for authors to have their characters battle to the death. So I had to whip up a character image of Jaya.

Very nice, although not how I pictured her.

I don't suppose any of my characters would last long in a battle to the death, except maybe Blue Cowl.
