WIP Wednesday – The Groove, and getting back to it.

Currently in the project shuffle:

The story no title will stick to, my little post-apocalyptic baby, now toddling towards its final round of disasters, weaving in ends while I knit another pattern repeat.  I have missed this book, even though our love affair has matured out of the stage where we only want to spend time with one another.

We’re plotting and pacing and poking the fourth Ylendrian Empire book, which, as it happens, was actually the first Ylendrian Empire book, once upon a time in the dimdarkpast.  The Spacers will return, better than ever- now with context, class warfare, and echoes of a past we hadn’t created yet, back when they first introduced themselves.

Peripheral People, the third Ylendrian Empire book, is in the hands of our terrific editor, who should be giving us news one way or the other in the next few weeks.  In the meantime, we’re writing a short story set after the events in the book, because that’s how we roll.

And speaking of short stories, or really, novellas, our last (current) WIP is a daring little holiday rampage featuring Tal, Kellen, and Vanya.  Sometimes finding the gift isn’t actually as hard as giving it to someone- especially when you wake up naked and alone in the middle of the black, and find they’ve gone missing.

Finally, on a more grounded, mundane note, there will be a series of website updates happening soon, none of which should cause any trouble, but you can never tell with these things.  If you have any trouble with either the blog or the Ylendrian Empire site this weekend, keep calm and carry off anything of value- we’ll be up and running again shortly.
