May 2017: Editing and VIKINGS EVERYWHERE

Between existential crises, minor panic attacks, and angry rants against my state’s legislature, I am carrying on.While the plot structure of Human is still kicking my ass, The Temple of Tarkoth is in its final round of editing. Human is slated for release June 13 and The Temple of Tarkoth for September 12. Do you see the problem? GAH.

Daindreth’s Assassin is currently under query to Entangled Teen, so we’ll see how that goes. *crosses all fingers and toes* I’ve heard great things about them from their authors and I’m really hoping!

Currently, I am staying with my grandmother in Poulsbo, WA. This sleepy little town of around 10,000 is just outside Seattle overlooking Liberty Bay. If nothing else, they have plenty of art galleries, coffee houses, and bookstores.

I have befriended the local used bookstore owner, Charlie, who recommended the Earthsea Cycle by Ursula K. Le Guin. These babies were published in the 60’s and 70’s, but are original, complex, racially diverse, feminist…why the hell haven’t I heard of them before?

Speaking of Poulsbo, this weekend was Poulsbo’s Viking Fest. Kind of like Cinco de Mayo, but instead of pretending to be Mexican, everyone pretends to be Norweigan. (And that viking was the main livelihood of the Norweigan tribes, but whatever.)

In other news, I have started a political blog, The Wheatley Write-Up. That’s right. I’ve been meaning to do it for some time, but the events described in my inaugural blog post pushed me over the edge.

Now if you’ll excuse me, there are edits to be made and public policies to be analyzed. Until next week!
