It's been a busy month, with much going on. Things I wanted to blog about got put off, so I'll summarize them now.

First, I'm feeling so much better now that I'm no longer at work. I needed the time off, and it's been good for me.

Second, I did another signing on December 11. Unfortunately, when Violet and I arrived at the store, they told me they had received no copies of Epoch in spite of having ordered it a month previously. Luckily they had twenty copies of Attack of the Intergalactic Soul Hunters on hand, so I was able to sign and sell most of those. We made a good day out of it, but I couldn't help but feel a little burned by my publisher. I'd told them about the signing as well, and had even requested some posters to plug the upcoming EVIL? No posters I can understand, but no books?!? That's just bad business.

The next day was my birthday party. Violet and I went for a lovely meal at the Willow, and many of our good friends turned up to celebrate with us. The food was great, and Violet made an almond cheesecake for dessert that was just fantastic! It was a very happy time.

The rest of the month was spent preparing for Christmas and getting my creativity back. I'm happy to say that I finished editing and rewriting Cupidity, and I sent it off to my agent early last week. I've also leapt right back into Kids Who Know, and it is going along great. I am happily in my element once again.

With January comes the search for a new job. I've had time to think about what I want, but all I've really done is figure out what I don't want. I don't want any more corporate stuff. I'm going to look into part time work, and see how things go.

Happy Holidays, everyone, and all the best for the New Year.

PS - I'm having problems with blogger right now and can't post pictures. I'll add some as soon as I can. Until then, you'll just have to use your imaginations.

Evil? Teaser

Over at Worlds of Tim, I've put up a description of my new novel, Evil? I'm curious to see what the reaction to that will be, since I don't hide the potentially controversial subject matter. What is that potentially controversial subjectmatter? Why not click here and find out? Please do, I'd like to know how I've presented it to potential buyers in the YA age range, and their parents. Comments would be greatly appreciated.

Also, for those of you who enjoy my tract review blog, Biblical Proportions, I am once again going after the granddaddy of all tract makers, Jack T. Chick. Head on over to Biblical Proportions and see what I mean.
