Stick a fork in me.

I'm done!

With the "still must be edited" draft of Stacking the Deck, but the story is told. There are some tweaks to be made, but it's finished and it feels good, I tell you what. I was sweating getting it done. I did it.

I don't want to squeak that close to deadline again. I'm sure I will, but that doesn't change the fact that I don't want to.

In other news, Karen over at Euro-Reviews had this to say about Fortune's Fool: "Fortune's Fool presents the reader with good characterization and realistic, loveable characters." - 4.5 flags out of 5. You can read the whole review here.

Pretty decent day, all told, but now I'm giving my brain a break.

Oh! First. Congratulations to our very own Shelli Stevens for winning her category in the Stroke of Midnight contest. Way to go, Porthos!

Well done on finishing! I know the feeling on 'tweaking'. I've got a job to do on Garou Moon!

Yay for Shelli, too!

I loved "Fortune's Fool". I'm so glad someone else loved it too.
Congrats on meeting your deadline. Those edits seems like a pain in the neck.
Have you thought about competing in the Wild Rose Press Anthology? It looks like fun.
