Sorry all–it’s been a rough fall and early winter.  I’m not going to get Fire and Forge out anytime soon, either: there are a few problems in the way.

1. My cover artist was planning a wedding, then honeymooning, then dealing Christmas prep, and then health issues over Christmas, so she doesn’t have the artwork done.  No worries, though.  She always pulls through.

2. My scanner died.  And the new one we want is going to cost us around $85.  I won’t get paid until the end of February.  Which means that “Bar Tabs” won’t get published until February.

Now, onto some good news: I finally have the music that Detritus wanted to be written to…and I’ve got another short story collection in the works.  I haven’t quit writing.  It’s just been a little problematic.
