I sincerely apologize to everyone for my prolonged absence. The reason behind it is rather mundane: I’ve been battling a nasty, nasty bug for nearly two week now, and, frankly, I am not sure I’ve won that fight yet. That darn bug just won’t loosen its grip on me. This is definitively the worst flu I’ve contracted in years. (On the plus side, I lost seven pounds.)

Although I was very sick, (feeling a bit better now) I still managed to make some progress on my UF, using what little energy I had left. I think there might be a couple of fever-induced scenes somewhere in that manuscript. Seriously.

On the publishing front, I’ve learned that Night Shade Books is going through some major restructuration, hiring new people, expanding their distribution, etc. At the moment there are a few tentative release dates floating about for THE KING’S DAUGHTERS, one is mid-May and the other one is the end of June. Alas, nothing definite yet. I’ll make an announcement as soon as I know more.

Glad you are back. At least You are feeling positive about loosing weight (which is the same thing I hear from my wife whenever she gets sick). Hope you get well soon. As for nightshade reorganizing, this in fact is a good news (can't get any worse anyway). Hope to read your book before my 17 year old finishes college.

I believe there is a positive side to almost everything, if one looks for it. ;-) Apparently, Night Shade is doubling its workforce, so chances are good that things will get back to normal soon. My fingers are crossed...just in case.
