Busy times abound!
Between writing and a recent surgery for my wife, I have to say, "Life sure ain't boring!"
First and foremost, my wife has been having eye complications since around October 2011. Lately, though, they have gotten worse as she developed an ulcer in her eye. Long story short, Tuesday this week she had a partial cornea transplant--she's still in pain, but it will subside and she'll be able to see better. This all stems--no pun intended--from her stem cell transplant on September 1, 2011 to help cure her Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
Fingers crossed, she's still in remission . . . and on the road to improved health.
For writing, I'm literally in the middle of three writing projects. I am working on the final-final edits to Beholder's Eye. The main edits were done late last year, but I re-read it again as well as had a beta reader go through it, and I'm fixing a few minor mistakes. Other than that, I'll good with it. I'll still wait for the small press to finish looking at it, and if they pass on it . . . well, then it's off to the Kindle store!
Next is the major revision of a . . . horror novel, a small-time zombie apocalyptic novel I wrote years ago and am completely re-writing it. I'm only on the first three chapters, and so far they're turning out great.
Lastly is the online class I'm participating in by Brandon Sanderson on the Write About Dragons.com site, and it's the 2013 Summer Class. It's great fun, and so far I'm learning a lot.
And of course, I have to mention that my novelette Guest of Honor is available on the Kindle store for $1.99. It's a suspenseful thriller that crosses the lines of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the serial killer Ed Gein. Please pick it up by clicking on this link, and when you get a moment, I'd be grateful if you'd write a review.
