I posted!

The days are rolling along so fast I can't keep up. I didn't even realize I hadn't posted for weeks.

I got a new laptop, too, so I have no excuse. I liked my little Asus eee PC netbook so much, but it was starting to really tear up--garbage screens occasionally, the second keyboard is going out again, etc. It was time for another one, and I decided to go for another Asus netbook, but a bigger one. The timing was perfect, since I got royalties from DDP that came close to paying for it a few weeks ago.

Speaking of Double Dragon Press, I went ahead and sent them Evil Outfitters, Ltd, and they accepted it already. I don't have time to self-publish anything right now, and I'm doing very well with that publisher.

I still haven't heard from Angry Robot about Bell-Men. From what I hear, only about 25 manuscripts were moved up to editorial, so I'm in a rare group. But they can't accept all 25--they may not accept any, who knows?--and I expect to be rejected in the fullness of time. Since I can't interest an agent even at this stage, it's possible DDP will get Bell-Men eventually.

I hear ya about the 'non-posting' business. It's been at least two weeks since I last posted.

A new computer. Nice. Double-nice that royalty money covered most of it too! I bet that Bell-Men will find a home one day.

Thanks, I hope so. The new laptop is a lot of fun, even though it has Windows instead of Linux.
