Because I have been taking
care of my wife, Liz, who recently underwent a complete knee replacement surgery, I am late in updating my website and trivia
section. I know you will appreciate and understand my situation.
I still have
queries and partial submissions for The Sign of the Eagle out to several literary agents
and publishers. There are four publishers currently considering the novel. I wrote about one in my last entry and still waiting
to hear from the editor. This particular one seems to be the most promising. And as I mentioned a couple of entries back,
not one but now there are two e-publishers who would like to publish the novel. However, I will have to wait until September
to resubmit to one and January, 2012 to resubmit to the other. I would still prefer a publisher that publishes both traditional
and e-books at the same time.
Since I am taking care of my wife, horses, and our mini-farm at
the same time, progress on the rewrite of The Wolf of Britannia has slowed down but
is still moving along. I am able to attend the Spokane Novelist and Spokane Valley Writers Group as well and read from my
latest novel, The Broken Lance.
Copies of the December, 2011 issue
of Down in the Dirt literary magazine, which contains my short story, Death Most Poisonous,
is still available. Click onto the Short Story box at the top of the homepage and click onto http://scars.tv and them click onto Down in the Dirt magazine.
Even the Romans could not go a day without a bath. Check out "Public Baths and Bathing in Ancient Rome" on the trivia page.
That's all until next time. Vale! Farewell!
