This is beside the point, but all you would-be YA writers should read this article: "read this b4 u publish"
So I went and acted all lazy yesterday, and now I'm back. I got up early, and did something I've been meaning to do for a long time - EXECUTE MY BLOGROLL.
In all actuality, I think it was Blogger's new 'Blogroll II' feature that put them out of business, but whatever the reason, Blogroll hasn't been running for well over a month. And so. It has now lost it's place of honor in the temple of Ray. I spent 'many-long-time' typing all my links, and I've even added a whole crazy slew of new ones. So go ahead - look for your name. Basically if you've ever commented on my blog, ever, you're now an official 'Friend of V'. Good for you. Now go and tell people you know me. Cuz they'll be really impressed.
Anyhow. Now that I know who's been blogging, and who's been hiding out in secluded cabins working on their revisions, I can get caught up. With all y'all.
For those folks who're owed some literary closure (from the 'Fiersom's Brood' fiasco), go ahead and wire me an email. As always, my addy's beside my profile pic. In return, you'll get a lovely attatchment containing the whole, 'fresh-out-of-the-oven', twenty-plus page document. I came very very close to uploaded it to Writer's Cafe and including a link in this blog post, BUT... then I became frightened.
Cuz this is stuff that somebody's about to try to sell. In other words, this book has become a marketable product.
