OK, here we go again.

Time to get back to this blog after a significant vacation.

Quick catch up and then we'll move forward.

Since my last post (yeah, it's been a while), I've:
a) celebrated my 20th anniversary
b) been accepted into graduate school at Bowie State University
c) had "Echoes of Coventry" come out in a dead-tree version - What's Past
d) been promoted in Kendo to Nidan (2nd Dan)
e) began wrapping up my current contract at work and waiting to see what comes next
and finally
f) been offered and have accepted the position as a columnist for an on-line magazine. (more on that in a bit.)

So, no, I'm not dead. No, I haven't quit writing. No, I haven't sold any original work *yet*.

I'll post more about my new position later.

But, for now, we're back and ready to hit 2012 with a vengeance. I'll also be directing the people interested in my Kendo to Nightwolfkendo. I'll try to keep my writing blog and my kendo blogs separate and both up-to-date.

Anyway. Happy New Year to everyone and looking forward to hearing from those people who haven't given up on this blog quite yet.

"The Wolf is ALIVE!!!"
To paraphrase Brian Blessed.

Welcome back. Since you've been gone, I've aquired a (genuine, real, verified) agent, and am poised to have one adult Fantasy and one pre-YA adventure launch into the pool of editors to see if one nibbles.

Congrats on your As! Don't you already have books in print anyway?

Re: "The Wolf is ALIVE!!!"
OK, I'm not explaining the threading on this post, but let's go with it.

You are correct. I do have some books in print.

However, I'm still working on selling some original stuff. That's where the whole "Who can get an agent first" pseudo-contest came in about four years ago, IIRC.

So, while I have some books, you have the agent.

We'll call it a tie and still split a bottle of single-malt one of these days.

Sounds fantastic! RAH! (About to send off a Dark Age adventure yarn for 11-14 to agent so am in Barbarian Mode.)

Re: "The Wolf is ALIVE!!!"
Fantastic. And well deserved, no doubts.

No agents yet.

However, I did get all A's on my first two classes of Graduate School (and am more educated on Anna Karenina than I ever wanted to be).

My Literary Research professor wants to work with me on my final project though about getting it published in a literary journal. I guess that's something. *wink*

Course, now I think I owe you something for getting the agent first.
