The Editing Fairy came back. . . .

Darn her little butterfly wings! She dropped a big ol' pile of manuscript on my doorstep this morning, which apparently has to be read by Wednesday. WEDNESDAY! That's like . . . um, less than a week! And I was so happy slacking off! Knitting, and reading stuff that doesn't have a deadline. And getting together some fresh new text for my website! Of course, it's the manuscript for Dragon Flight, and I know that we all want Dragon Flight to be nice and pretty and full of juicy goodness. Sigh. So, for the sake of the dragons, I shall endeavor to meet my deadline with grace and aplomb, and also with perspicacity and all kinds of big words that will just make this the best sequel EVER! Up until I finish the third book, and that becomes the best sequel ever. And speaking of which, I may be changing the title of that one. I know I've been calling it Dragon Crown, but it seems to me that that might be a more apt title for a fourth book I've been mulling. . . . Hm. Well, just don't get too attached to any titles you can't find on the cover of an actual book in an actual bookstore, that's all I'm saying.

The copy editing fairy is one of those realities in life we don't like but can't live without. *grimace* Can't wait for your new books to come out!

Weird! I keep posting comments, but then they dissappear...

I read my little sister "Dragon Slippers" a few weeks ago and she has been talking about it ever since then and going into little rants about how long it is until the tentatively titled "Dragon Flight" comes out. Sounds like it is going to be excellent and she is going to be totally psyched out if I tell her there is not only a third book planned, but maybe (Please!) even a fourth. Dragon Slippers was the best children's book I read this year. Just an amazing job and I was so pleased that I could share it with my little sister! Thanks for Dragon Slippers and really looking forward to your upcoming books this 2008.

Merry Christmas!
