I'm back from BABScon! Nobody recognized me there, so maybe bronies aren't my target audience. On the other hand, I sold out my whole supply of books. The person most interested, who came back twice because she couldn't decide which book to buy, was a ten year old girl. If ten year old girls turn out to be my target audience, I am FINE with that.
I got a little writing done while I was there, but it really only served to make me obsessively sit down and finish the chapter when I got home. The sequel is coming along nicely. The setup is just about finished, and like many of my books, the plot is about to veer off in a new direction.
My tradition has been to post chapters as I write them for the first third to half of my book. My publisher does not want me to do that, which is sad, but I can assure you that this chapter featured lightning wisps, mysterious telegrams, and jokes about Huichtilopochtli!
