Well, whether you consider this an improved schedule or not is probably a matter of opinion. I don't even know if I consider it improved, I just know I needed to give myself a little more breathing room.
So without further fuss, here's what's lined up for the rest of the year.
Come Unto These Yellow Sands June 14th from Samhain.
DG4: Double Down (we had a title change on that one) releases September 13th from Loose Id.
The XO-Files: Mummy Dearest releases September 30th from Samhain
My final Petit Mort story also releases sometime in September.
Lone Star part of a Christmas anthology with Harper Fox and KA Mitchell releases in December from Carina Press.
A Shot in the Dark 2: Blue Moon releases December 20th from Loose Id.
And that's pretty much it for this year. I know that's significantly reduced from what I'd hoped to do but it turns out that case of burn-out was a little worse than I thought. And while, ironically, I think I'm turning out some of my best work right now, it's a lot harder than it should be. Not that I subscribe to the idea that writing should be easy (U r doin' it rong!) but it shouldn't be painful. As in I think I sprained my brain.
So that's where we are. That's still six stories to come this year, so it's still a busy year for me -- and hopefully a reasonably satisfying year for you.
