Working On...

I've dusted off an old manuscript called Shadow Hunter that I didn't think would ever see the light of day. I guess it's like one of those untouched chores that bug you and bug you until you cave in and just finish it off!

Well this one is a finished story at 65k but it still needs quite the rewrite, despite it's couple of wins and finals in some pre-pubbed comps (2008 & 2009) Anyway, I've given myself a week to rewrite it and add just over 25k (gulp) before sending it off. Nothing like a goal to keep one motivated though! (a bit like the gym I've just signed up for...but that's another story)

I've also started Galactic Storm - book 3 of the Alien Hunger series and inbetween that I'm working on Dimensional and Chameleon. Hopefully I'll settle onto just one after my week of mad editing and rewriting and get it finished and sent to editor =)
