What a great exit line! Lord Jamie Lannister is definitely growing on me. For those of you who don’t get the reference, I was watching the latest episode of Game of Thrones tonight, groaning that there are only 3 episodes left, and realizing that it will take YEARS before they tell the entire story. This is a fantastic fantasy series that’s been translated very faithfully to the small screen. And you know why? Because George R. R. Martin did the adaptation, and didn’t let them destroy his story. Unlike certain other HBO shows I could mention.

Hmmm, back to the homefront. I’m slowly reclaiming my house. All of the repair people are gone! Yes, our house is once again ours. No more space suits, no more 8:00 am doorbells. New paint, new carpet, dry floors. And gods be praised, we’re once again sleeping in our bedroom. That was the first room I completed, our bedroom. What a relief. Now, I have to move everything back into my office, which means wiring the computers and printers, etc. I had to start from scratch because they took everything (and I mean everything) out. In the end, it will be much neater than the tangled pile of cords (some not even connected to anything anymore) that was there, so that’s a good thing. Next up will be returning all the books and files to their proper places.

In fact, I’ve been working so hard getting everything back in order, that I’m going to treat myself to Iron Man 3 this week. And then … STAR TREK! Woohoo! INTO DARKNESS! I can hardly wait. And have you all seen the Leonard Nimoy/Zachary Quinto Audi Commercial? It’s so funny and so much fun! I think Quinto is a terrific new Spock.

The next Cyn & Raphael e-novella HUNTED went off to my publisher tonight. I held onto it for a while, since it’s so closely tied to the story in ADEN, but I’m far enough along there that the story is set. So my publisher is happy, I’m happy, and you all will be happy to hear that HUNTED is on track for a Summer release. Lots of Cyn & Raphael, with a taste of Lucas & Kathryn, and a teaspoon of ADEN.

And I’m finally making wonderful progress on ADEN. Now that I have my workspace back to myself, I’m writing like crazy and it feels so good. What a relief. I was beginning to think my brain was permanently clogged. But, nope. Aden is with me all the way. 🙂

And speaking of ADEN, don’t forget the BRENDA NOVAK AUCTION to NAME A CHARACTER IN ADEN. May is half over, which means so is the auction.

Wait, did I say May is half over? WTF? I’ve got to get back to work! Six weeks of camping in the living room have seriously cut into my deadline margin. I’ve updated my 100 Book Challenge, posted some books on Yy GoodReads Page, and reviewed John Sandford’s latest Lucas Davenport. Gotta get to work.

See you next week!
