On the blog, No Wasted Ink. She asked good questions.
In which I am asked what I think are some rather interesting questions: http://www.niwawriters.net/m-m-justus.html
This is a great organization, by the way. If you’re going to be at WorldCon in Spokane in August, stop by the NIWA table in the dealers’ room and say hello.
And someone else who gets what I was trying to do. Love it.
I do love it when a reviewer understands — and likes — what I was doing with the story.
If you’d like to know something about what makes the writerly part of me tick, you might want to check this interview out.
Megan Cyrulewski asked me some thought-provoking questions.
Repeating History has a new listing, at Science Fiction Romance‘s website. When the person who reads the books and vets them for the site responded positively to my request, she said, and I quote, “The romance in it is on the light side, so I flagged it as Love
Story. It was a well-written, historically researched time-travel, though.”
Here’s the cover:
And here’s the description:
No good deed goes unpunished.
In a place outside of time, the magic keeping a ghost town alive is beginning to alter. Bringing two newcomers in has caused a welcome renewal of life here. But every action has a reaction, and the consequences are far beyond what Conconully’s accidental magician ever expected.
By the way, if you’d like to have a free copy of this short story, which comes after my novel Sojourn, and does contain slight spoilers for that book, you can join my newsletter at http://mmjustus.com/list and my next edition will contain a link. I hope to see you there!
Tales of the Unearthly Northwest, volume 1.5, a short story called “New Year’s Eve in Conconully,” has a completed manuscript! One more going-over, it heads off to the copy editor, and once it’s all pretty and cleaned up and the cover is finished, a free copy goes to my mailing list (and if you’d like to join my mailing list for this reason or any other, look to your right at the sidebar), before it goes up for sale.
Then I can get back to Reunion, which is volume 2!
And a dollar short, or something like that.
Anyway, I now officially have a list of goals for 2015.
The writing goals are as follows:
1) Write at least five days a week, at least 1000 words a day, for all of 2015.
2) Finish the short story “New Year’s Eve in Conconully” in the next few days and distribute it to my mailing list, then publish it.
3) Finish Reunion by the end of February and publish it by the end of March.
4) Make more plans for the Unearthly Northwest.
5) Write at least two more novel-length Tales of the Unearthly Northwest — #3 to be published by the end of summer, and #4 by the end of the year. I’ve already got ideas for each of these.
6) Write at least three more short stories and distribute them to my mailing list, then publish them.
That ought to keep me out of trouble, don’t you think?
