As you can clearly see from my picture to the right, I'm finishing my current WIP. It's been both a blessing and a lesson in frustration hosting relatives for the holiday. I love my mom, and was more than happy to see her since she lives so far away...on the west coast while I'm on the east coast. She's gearing for a trip to New Zealand and returns to Seattle only to fly out again next week. But her leaving frees up my much-loved desktop.

The laptop which I had thought crashed actually hadn't. I reformatted the hard drive and restored Windows XP--I've been told by countless users (hello, Teri), not to go with Vista--and the laptop is up and running again, but much more slowly than my old faithful computer in the study.

Bottom line, I'm working like a dog, or in the case of the above picture, a monkey :) , and look forward to turning in my story, which now has a title, to Amber Quill! Emergence will hit the publisher Saturday and, if the schedule follows, be available in mid-January 2008. Yippee Skippee.

Oh, and don't forget. Only one more day to enter my November Contest. Contest ends Friday, so if you haven't already, enter for a chance to win one of my print titles.
