I have finished the final burnish on Thaliad, an epic poem forthcoming from Phoenicia Publishing (Montreal) in January. And I have cranked through 100 pages of proofs so far on A Death at the White Camellia Orphanage (Mercer University Press, The Ferrol Sams Award for Fiction,) forthcoming in March. Despite some ferrying days, I am hoping to finish all before the end of the week.
Glad to see that the post-tracker shows that visitors are still wandering by and checking out older posts. Although I try to pay e-visits to those who drop by and leave comments, I will put off all such visit visits until I finish my deadlines.
