Writing is lots of work, a lot of rejections, a lot of work, a lot of learning, and – once more – a lot of work. Occasionally there’s a reward. Â I recently received a really great reward that I can finally talk about (translate that as the contracts are signed and in hand at my agent’s office). Â Really, I’ve been wanting to squeal for a few weeks now. Â I get to work with Lou Anders!
Lou is truly one of my favorite editors. Â I like who he is as a person (creative, smart, driven) and how he supports and promotes his authors. Â And now I get to be one of them. Â I’m quite pleased to report that Lou has acquired a duology from me.
A little about the books: Â I’ve always been fascinated with how single individuals can make a big difference. Â Churchill. Â Lincoln. Â Hitler. Â And for this series, Eva Peron. Â Yes, the story is told in space and it’s adventure fiction. Â And no, I don’t have a character named Evita. Â But I did steal ideas from her real life, and from the musical, and mixed them all up with a generation ship story.
I can’t say any more lest I give out spoilers.
The first book, The Creative Fire, is done. Â I’m excited to start the second one shortly.
So watch for The Creative Fire from Pyr books late this year…
