Let’s see, what’s going on? Just got back from grandma’s place, where we had a terrific time, though it’s still hard to see her struggling; I have kept up my decision to exercise five to six days a week, in the gym, first thing after I wake, and I feel good; also, still tweaking my query. I find I’m editing it slightly depending on which agent is getting the submission. This is getting exciting, yo.

Someday, I will catch up on Livejournal. Someday. *cues flute of forgetfulness* Have some links!

How to Get Money Out of a Publisher – fantastic advise for the already-published by Kristin Nelson.

Rottweiler adopts wolfcub – oh, the cute. OH. *love*

And last but not least, as a warning to us all….


A three-times bestselling author, Ruthanne Reid has led a convention panel on world-building, taught courses on plot and character development, and been the keynote speaker for the Write Practice Retreat. Author of two series with five books and fifty-plus short stories, Ruthanne has lived in her head since childhood, when she wrote her first story about a pony princess and a genocidal snake-kingdom and used up her mom’s red typewriter ribbon in the process. When she isn’t reading, writing, or reading about writing, Ruthanne enjoys old cartoons with her husband and two cats, and dreams of living on an island beach far, far away. P.S. Red is still her favorite color.
