Yeesh & Yetis

Yikes, I have so much to do today. But it is all my own fault. I tend to leave things to the last minute. I admit it. Right now I'm waiting for furniture to be delivered (the stuff we got refinished, not new stuff) and then I have to go to the pharmacy and to the Post Office. Then...I need to write at least 3 reviews, post 2 interviews, make some site changes, launch a new contest, get stuff ready, take care of mail and bills, go shopping with Rich (optional, but my fun thing of the day), update blogs, clean, do laundry...there's bunches more, but I suppose you're getting the drift.

In writing news, I finished my revisions. Right now, Daniel Ehrenhaft and Lara Zeises are looking at it for me (wonderful people), but I don't expect to hear back from them until after Thanksgiving. And then...the great agent search. At least Dan (Knuckles) says that he's liked what he's read so far. That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I love his books, especially his latest one that will come out next year (March or May, one of the M months, can't remember which one). Great fun.

So I'm in a bit of limbo, which I guess is good for the holidays. I didn't even pretend to try to do NaNoWriMo this year. Sigh. We went to Phoenix for about a week and with other stuff going on, I just knew there was no way. I still think they should change which month they do that. November is about the worst month (next to December) to try to write 50K words in.

I did write out some notes for another book, Serious McElvoy. The name came to me about a year or two ago and about two weeks ago, a bunch of bits came to me and I wrote some of them down. More of a middle grade novel. I also fleshed out just a bit the next two This Bites books (This Bites: France Sucks [or This Bites: Voulez Vous Vampire if the first title is too politically incorrect] and This Bites: Vampire U). Here's hoping I get a chance to write them!
