A Writing Test

When I have an idea for a book, I usually write up a page or so to explore it before I get to hardcore planning.  In theory, this could be the book in Penny's continuity, but not about her, published before book four.  Working title:  'I Did Not Give That Spider Superhuman Intelligence.'

Here is what might or might not be the first chapter.  Think it has potential?

Do The Summer Of Lob Thing

So, the good news, Summer of Lob is out!  YAY!  It's in this anthology!


For those of you who wanted a copy and didn't get one, it was because we were days from the full thing coming out.  I'm sorry!

For those of you that did get one, I wish to ask a favor.  In exchange for my beneficence handing out free copies for you to enjoy, could you put up reviews on that Amazon page?  The ones so far are all from other authors' ARC friends, and I'm like 'None of these mention me AT ALL.  This anthology is about me!  Something had better be done about this!'

Actually, my publisher just wants a lot of early reviews and it's a really helpful to me, too.

Okay, I had both thoughts.

I continue work on A Sidekick's Tale.  It is grindingly slow.  Trying to figure out why and correct that.

A Question About The Future

Currently I'm working on A Sidekick's Tale (that will so not be the final title.)  It's going slow, and I find it's a book that is inspired by working on other things as well.  If I were to do a non-Penny book in Penny's continuity before the original series ends, it would be set pre-year 2000, and have an adult main character.  Is there anyone or anything you folks are interested in, to help direct my inspiration?
