This is from Chapter Five, and Jazz’s POV. She has just magically squatted in a fancy house for sale and is calling home to the Djinn realm. And, of course, parents are the same everywhere! =)
Ginger agrees that Jazz’s voice in Subtle Fire is much more on target now. Thanks to you all for helping me whip it into shape, and I’ll be posting more as we go along until I feel 100% confident I’ve got it down. Thank you, thank you, thank you! =)
*speaks in a whisper so as not to spook her as-of-late super-shy muse* I’ve actually broken out the YA Djinn UF again so as to tinker with the voice, which didn’t fully work for my agent when she read it, and you know, actually FINISH it so I can polish it up all nice and pretty and lob it Ginger’s way. Cause sadly, she did not fall in love with my psychic/angel UF. Ah well, you can’t win them all! Darn the luck!
I’ll hopefully have more exciting stuff to post later, including a re-cap of my day trip to KC to hobnob with two friends from Absolute Write’s Purgatory thread *waves madly to Bryn and Kari* and
stalk watch the uber awesome Jim Butcher run a Q&A session and book-signing at the KC Public Library. A great time was had by all, and I really enjoyed hanging with Bryn, Kari, their lovely friends, and Kari’s adorable daughter.
Oh, I WILL go ahead and post a pic from the event because HELLO…I’m standing right by JIM BUTCHER!!!
Double oh–I have info on the imprint and date my book will be published! Red Hot Fury will come out as an Ace book in August, 2010. Later than I originally hoped, however it is well worth the wait as it will be a lead title. Eeeeeeee!!!
I should have several exciting tidbits to share soon. But for now, a snippet for Teaser Tuesday dedicated to all my Purgie Peeps. I love you guys!!! From Subtle Fire, the WIP that is not really a WIP… (YA Djinn urban fantasy)
…but just wanted to get a quick post up before I lay back down. I have been busy working on some writing-related stuff lately (a group blog I am absolutely excited about, along with a customized design of my website by a talented writing friend/designer of mine), plus I’ve been really busy IRL, so I haven’t been posting as much as I wanted to. My goal this week is to get back on a regular posting schedule…honest!
I also want to start doing more substantive posts. But today is not the day for that!
