As usual, running all sorts of late...but at least it's still January, right? This is an FYI that the revised version of my second Geren novel is now available for anyone who read the older version and might like to read it again. Alas, due to running even more late with art projects, the cover art for this novel is slapdash temporary. While I'd like to say I'll have a better cover done in a few months...may be wiser to say a few years.

Once again, crushingly broke so I cannot currently provide paper copies. But please let me know if you want one, and it will get a higher priority on my ever-lengthening purchases list!

So, I finished a little later than my planned deadline of Dec 31, 2015, but not by far. This is just an FYI that the revised version of my first Geren novel is now available for anyone who read the older version and might like to read it again. (It's being called 'first Geren novel' because my wonderful editor persuaded me to change the name, but my geriatric brain has known it as 'Hu-Hua's Cry' for so long it won't recognize anything else!)

As I am more broke than I've ever been since 1999, I cannot currently provide paper copies. My apologies...maybe after that hoped-for tax refund!

NOTICE: With the completion of the five Geren novels, a new stage of my life begins, one with more focus on novels that avarii_wings and renewer_rising were set up for, rather than this place. Therefore, future monthly summary posts will be located at my 'misc' LJ, shout_of_joy.

Certainly not an April to ever be forgotten. Can't say my list is remarkably huge, but it's certainly momentous because it includes the biggest finish line of my life, past present or yet-to-come. The Geren novels are COMPLETE! (Well, yes, there is the unending editing, but the story is finally all down in words.)

As for May, that entails getting settled in with my new pc, which I'm moving into this weekend. And lots of learning on all the new versions of the various software I had to get to be 64-bit Windows 7 compatable. Aside from that, there's the editing of Emissary's Sacrifice to keep hammering away at, and hopefully some progress in 'Delarun' section 2 as well, before the horrid summer heat brings writing season to a close until September. I'd also really like to get going with my book 5 completion picture, but that might be slow with all the learning I'll have to do in the process. Can't forget the fun of awaiting and enjoying the arrival of my two last and biggest book 5 completion rewards!

Yep, just finished book 5 about an hour ago, and with it, the overarching story of all five of the Geren books. Wow. And as it's the 10th anniversary of finishing book 1 on April 22, at least I got it in under the decade-mark from the end of that book!
