The CFS (another post for another time) has really been dragging me down the last few days, so it's been slow and painful. But progress is still happening.

The revision of Chosen of Azara
is coming right along too. It's been tough this week, then I finally
realized what was messing everything up: the main secondary character in
the Lucie story arc needs a complete personality transplant. The
tense relationships between this character and the two main characters
is one of the primary conflicts in that section of the book, and it just
wasn't happening. I've had a hard time pinning down this character, but
I think I've finally got it figured out. I'm also rearranging some of
the major scenes at the very end of the book, so once that's done I'll
print out the Lucie section and go to work on fixing up that character. I
don't want to rush things; I want to get it right, so this most likely
isn't going to be a May release; I'm hoping for June, if all goes well
once this major surgery is done.
Finally, I want to announce that a friend of mine who's a very talented artist has opened an etsy shop: Motley Apricot Paintworks. Check it out for fabulous artwork, home decor, hand-painted wooden jewelry, and other wonderfully decorative and useful items.
