Catching up – Open Thread …

Hi all!

Sorry I’ve been AWAL lately. My day job has been hella-busy AND my writing life has gotten wonderfully fun.

I try not to let my writing side creep in here too much, but I do have one piece of news that is too good not to share. I recently received and accepted an offer of representations from Jita Fumich at Folio Literary Management. It is so much fun to have someone excited about my writing and willing to get behind the sexy SciFi romance series I’ve been working on.

Other stuff I’ve been up to…

Recently attended an all day workshop with Bob Mayer.  Bob is a fantastic speaker and has wonderful insight into the changes in the publishing industry. From a SciFi fan point of view, Bob has a great Area 51 series of books and I picked up a copy of Nightstalkers. Bob did share that he is working on linking all of the individual series he has written into one larger world of linked books. It will be exciting to see how that works out!

As for my consumption of SciFi media I have been sulking over to the Falling Skies website over and over, hoping the news of when it will return will magically change to TOMORROW.  I miss SciFi on TV!

In this mean time, I dug up Farscape on HuluPlus. I only got to the first episode, but it seemed pretty fun. It is an older show and seems to have held up well. They only real problem I had with it is that it stars Ben Browder and Claudia Black. I watched them together on SG1 (which they did after Farscape) and it felt a little déjà vu, but not so much that I won’t watch more. It is also available streaming or on DVD on Amazon.

So… what have you been up to? Please consider this an open thread to fill me in! ….
