The To-Do List of Silk July 2, 2012Posted by Elizabeth Schechter in 2012 plans, Princes of Air, progress, summer, Ta-da, Tales from the Arena, to-dos.
I just finished reading that, by the by. The House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz is the first Sherlock Holmes novel authorized by the Conan Doyle Estate. A very credible job, and I enjoyed it greatly.
So… it’s been a few months since I last updated the state of the writer. Not much is going on right now — my son is out of school, and my writing time is strictly curtailed. So, for the summer, I’m doing some fun writing (aka Sherlock fanfiction. Bringing that series to a close), and working out the outlines for Tales from the Arena and The Navigator (which I used to call Steam and Screw.) I’m also planning on finishing From Dusk ’til Dawn, which I might need to break down and outline — a first for me, since I usually don’t outline a short piece.
Off the old list, Oh, Promise Me has found a home. Kidnapped by Pirates may have found a home . So might Sapphires and Gold. Got an agent call for Nomad’s Moon out of nowhere (two YEARS after initial query) but that went nowhere. Still waiting on a publisher who seemed interested in a seven books fantasy series (if they take it, I will be sending a thank you note to George RR Martin.)
And, the big news, Princes of Air was nominated for the Passionate Plume, a RWA award for erotic romance. I can’t be in Anaheim to see the awards ceremony, and I’m up against last year’s winner, so we’ll see what happens on the 26th. But, to celebrate, Circlet has put Princes on sale for the rest of the month — use the coupon code RAVENPRINCE over at Circlet to get a copy for half off.
