Blog Bog

Sigh...several of my latest blog posts have been simply playing catch-up. Going a week or so without blogging and then cramming little bits together and calling it a post. Not the best way to keep you all entertained, I admit.

Am I about to do it again? Well, sort of.

Okay, not "sort of." Pretty much straight-up "yes."

First, as I sit here it is nearing the end of October 12th, and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Christmas Magic released today. My short story "Lights of Hope" is in there!

Second, I had a wicked cool day at Universal Studios, hanging out in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter again. Which is why I totally slacked on posting about the Chicken Soup book earlier. Priorities, yes, I know :).

Third, the dragon puzzle I mentioned starting a few posts ago is done, glued, and hanging on the wall in the hallway.

Fourth, still no word from the small press on Finding Angel. Definite interest in my short story, although a few edits were in order. Tiny edits. Keen-eyed editor spotted a few bits of "telling" and I quickly turned them to "showing" and sent it back. Will let you know as soon as possible the final decision on the short, and whether or not a full manuscript is requested for Finding Angel.

So, there you have it. Another recap of the life of Kat. I'm hoping to find an actual topic to post about next time. Something, you know, with a beginning, middle and end. And a point. That might be nice, eh?

Congrats on the story in Chicken Soup. Out of professional curiosity, what type of contract did they give you? Are you going to get royalties? Good luck with Finding Angel.
