The past month has been extremely busy with an emotional roller-coaster thrown in. Trying to adapt to having a rambunctious kitten in the house while attempting to not only write but look after the house as well has been a bit of a challenge, add in the passing of my father's older brother and the birth of a cousin's baby girl has added to the turmoil, which is why this post is a bit late. I apologize for that. The kitten is now 7 months old, still hyper, but also highly affectionate to the point of trying to get into my lap as I'm attempting to work. She almost always wants to play as well. Both my writing and editing have been de-railed for a bit, but I hope to get them back on track in a month or so when the new kitten arrives. She is more shy than Phoebe and much younger, but just as playful so they should get along well.
I am currently transferring the ink edits I made on the hardcopy of La Lune's second book onto the computer file of the novel. The first book of La Lune's own trilogy is currently in submission to a publisher. I am hoping to give a broader look at the changes in La Lune to my readers by creating this series that does not include Moon Child. It helps to plot the changes in the character of the dark witch from the Yorkshire moors to pave the way for the eventual conclusion of Moon Child's series. It may take a while as the best publishers insist on manuscripts being sent to them and no one else until after they've made their decision. Unlike Moon Child's series, La Lune travels the gamut from Fantasy-Thriller/Horror, to Science-Fiction, to Science-Fantasy in the series. All three books are already written, I'm just polishing the text and editing the Science-Fiction novel that is set in another galaxy (M81 to be precise) that I've called the Adlamar Spiral in my books. The third novel is set in both the Milky Way and the Adlamar Spiral, I will begin editing it as soon as I have the pen and ink edits of the sci-fi transferred to my computer.
It's kind of fun creating different races while sneaking in a bit of a warning into the text, especially when it's hidden under both humor and a celebration of two iconic Canadian comedians from both my childhood and my mother's. Can anyone guess how Wayne and Shuster could become heroes in another galaxy? La Lune knows the answer, as do a race of blue-skinned aliens who reveal it in book three.
