Contracts HERE! And Heart Journey author copies! And HeartMate Thai Copies!

It's a good day at the Owens house (and Dingo got to chase Mystery Merlin, but then Dingo always get to chase Mystery Merlin).

The contracts for Untitled Heart Anthology and Untitled Heart Book #10 (Heart Secret) -- Heart Search is on the last contract. Much butt wiggling in the chair. Much dancing on the stairs. Much twirling around and laughing. The rum will be broken out After Writing. The paperwork (which is the only legal-sized docs I've seen for many years), will be scanned and expressed back.

I need to talk to my editor about the stories.

Heart Journey author copies are here. Raz's back is bare of tatt, which is sad but the right thing to do. I don't care for the back, which shows a big moon and oddly shaped "space buildings." Don't do me any favors, guys. Also, the "orangey" lettering is actually gold! I luvs it.

HeartMate Thai (I think) copies are here. I scanned the cover which is an interesting purplish free-form wispy thing, but will post it tomorrow.


May you have GREAT news today.

Thanks, folks. The Heart story collection (talking to my editor about it tomorrow -- I was thinking staggered length stories up to the biggie), but she may want 3 novellas. I'll post the pitches here in a bit. They would like that out next year, too. So I'll see.

Thanks! I am thinking the stories will be as follows: Genista's Story (Tinne's ex-wife) she has now moved to Gael City and is living quietly under a pseudonym and working at a clockmakers.

Arbusca Willow's story (Saille's mother from Heart Dance). Her HeartMate has come to town.

The Clovers Get A Noble Title -- and this may actually be set between Heart Journey and Heart Search.

Finally, Heart & Sword, the discovery of Celta...mutiny on the generation starship, Nuada's Sword!

(And I may just lift all this out for another post for those who don't read comments).
