Can it be spring already?
It looks like it from here. The sun is shining, rain drying, the doves are back...it has that hard-to-describe spring feeling in the air. I know sunshine doesn't have a scent, but it smells like sunshine.

If you’d like to discuss the book, I’ve set up discussion forum at Amazon -- I just want to steer clear of any spoilers here for those waiting for the print edition.
Come to think of it, that's NOT a Christmas song.
Anyway, I finished the edits to The Dark Tide last night. We remain on target for the 22nd. The final version is 81K and change (more than double the size of the original version of Fatal Shadows). Lots of plot, lots of relationship, lots of lots of. So you should enjoy it. At least it should keep you busy for a while.
Meanwhile I'm blogging at Jesse Wave's today. She's started this peculiar rumor that it's my last appearance on her blog, but if she invites me, of course I'm coming back. In the meantime, I'm there, I'm at Novelspot talking about series writing all this week -- I'll share my thoughts and tips and advice, and if you have questions on series or series writing, feel free to comment over there and I'll respond.
Later this week I'll be posting at Loose Ends (the Loose Id blog) and BookWenches.
One other thing! Over at Teddy Pig's I posted
five six books that I found inspirational for writing. All kinds of writers are chiming in with their favorites, so stop by and share your favorites too. Although to be honest, favorites sometimes depend on my mood and the time of year.
After that there will be something very close to radio silence while I relax and rest up for next year.
Hope you're all having a marvellous holiday season!
To say goodbye is to die a little.
