...reams of paper. And toner cartridges.

I'm doing the final read through on the MODERN FAE anthology, and I'm happy to report that I still enjoy the stories, even though I've read each of them at least a half-dozen times. This is the first time, however, that I'm reading the final version of the stories in the order that they'll appear in the book.

So far everything looks good. All the individual story files have already been copyedited, but now that they've been combined into a master document file, I need to check to make sure that everything looks good and there are no lingering formatting issues. Microsoft Word is really good about importing files from different wordprocessor formats...except, of course, when it's not.

If all goes well, we'll send in the final manuscript to Tekno tomorrow. Friday the 13th is a lucky day to deliver a book, right?

THE MODERN FAE'S GUIDE TO SURVIVING HUMANITY edited by Joshua Palmatier and Patricia Bray is scheduled for a March 2012 release. And yes, Joshua and I are currently plotting out our next anthology collaboration.

It's going to be a very cool collection indeed.

I'm glad I was able to contribute to this one! Spreading links and info around everywhere I can, even though it's early days.

And we're glad that you could come play with us!

Here's hoping that Josh and I sell another project so we get to do this again.

Of course, while reading over my story last night--searching for a snippet for website--I found a couple of instances of the same distinctive word used in the same 'graph/successive sentences. Too late to change now, I know. Just wish I had caught them at the time.
