View Full Version : Scooching over from a different thread

09-03-2006, 09:20 AM
I just realized that I should have started a new thread instead of piggybacking on the one that Joshua started. Apologies! I'm in between books right now. I've written a series of cosy mysteries and a trilogy of comedic SF pastiches with references to other books up the wazoo. I decided to try writing a "straight" science fiction fantasy and produced "Ragnarok". Now the pigeons have come home to roost and it's time to write a sequel. Sooo, I'm sitting and thinking and making lots of notes because I have to figure up front what is going to happen down the road. (LOVE those mixed metaphors.) I write strictly for the eBook market, and my next two books -- one SF comedy and one mystery -- are scheduled for release on Sept. 15th. The reason that I'm here is that I live on a wildlife refuge six miles outside of a town of 5,000 people and hardly seen anyone but my husband and six cats from one day to the next. I hope that Absolute Write will be my antidote for cabin fever.

Fantastic! And be sure to post your announcements in the announcement for all of us to read! It sounds to me like your Sci Fi might be something like Glen Cook? He's one of my favorites. I look forward to hearing more. Persi

I'd wish I had my own cabin in the wilderness.

Welcome to the cooler. :)

[quote=J. Weiland]I'd wish I had my own cabin in the wilderness.

In many respects it IS an ideal place to write. It's very quiet, just the calls of the local ravens, and a few turkeys and deer crashing through the underbrush. (Silent forest creatures? Hah!) It's a ten minute walk to the nearest neighbors and since we got onto the "no call" list the phone is mostly silent. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, so I spent my first year in culture shock. When I started writing mysteries I set them in a small town very much like our local one, but I keep an old Thomas Bros. map guide to Los Angeles for the rare instances when I want to write something set in the Big City.

Welcome, J. D.! Glad you're here.

Hi J.D., and welcome to AW! I visited your web site (very nice, I must say). I too am an old fan of Ngaio Marsh - I just wish I could get copies of all her books in hardback. Glad to see your works at FictionWise. I've recently been purchasing eBooks on a regular basis to carry in my PalmPilot wihile I travel. It takes so much less space in the suitcase for us voracious readers.

Best of luck - the only problem with AW is the amount of time it can eat up once it sucks you in. :) Come on over to the Coffee Break and visit.

Hi J.D. and :welcome:

I've often dreamt of living in a cabin out in the woods. Sounds like paradise to me!
