A reader recently e-mailed me to ask me about the release date for Out of the Darkness (the sequel to Dark Horse), and I told her that I had no idea, but thought it was scheduled for sometime in August. She e-mailed me back and told me she'd looked into it, and it was coming out on August 9th. Good to know!

So I went to the Dreamspinner site, and it looks like they've not only got a release date, but also a final version of the cover! (See icon, or go to the Dreamspinner Page for the full-size image). I think I like it. Hopefully other people will too...

I've been playing with a short story about Evan and Jeff's early relationship. It's fun, and I still love the characters, but sooner or later, I'm going to have to stop writing about them, right? I mean, I'm already well over 500K words - it's just getting a little silly!

Maybe after I'm done this story...

Although I'd love to send Dan back to Rolex, and have him win on his own. My problem with that is that I don't know enough about the ins-and-outs of high level eventing to make it authentic. I was thinking of doing a Sports Illustrated style story, 'reporting' on the event - it'd be a chance to just hit the highlights without needing to wallow in my lack of knowledge, plus a chance to experiment with an outsider POV AND a whole different writing style.

So maybe TWO more stories before I leave the boys alone.

Working on the blurbs for Dark Horse and Out of the Darkness. It seems strange to be doing them at the same time, but they want to put the OotD blurb at the end of DH.

It's a fun sort of puzzle - how much do we need to include to get people interested, without including too much and giving away the whole story?

Working on Out of the Darkness, the sequel to Dark Horse. It's a bit tricky - I LIKE that there's not one huge central conflict, because I think that's true to life, where we just struggle through a variety of little issues in our relationships. At the same time, it's not really a traditional narrative structure, and I'm worried that it could be a little unsatisfying for readers. I'm not quite sure what to do about it.
