What Are You Working On? What’s New?

Since it looks like my middle name is going to be inundation for a few days (It’s an old Puritan name, like Inundation Pruitt or something), I thought maybe a fun thing to do in the spirit of focusing on you (especially after the Nebula entry, which was all about *sniff* me), would be maybe a thread in which all of you tell folks about your current WIP(s) or recent releases. (I wanted to see if I could work in one more parenthetical phrase into this paragraph.)

And while you’re telling me, I’ll be checking papers, registering more people for Rosetta Stone, finishing off ELA graduation plans, reading some stuff for a grant, reading some other stuff for a convention board decision, checking out a registration database, checking papers, writing teachers about unpopular bookstore policies, explaining other plans for next semester that didn’t happen this semester due to limited time resource, writing two finals and whatever else comes up.

When I’m not at work, I’ll be writing, and reading a friend’s piece, which I’m really looking forward to. Much more fun, but not much posting time as a result.

So, tell me what you’re working on. Or what you have coming out. Why you love it. How it’s going. Where we can find it. And stuff like that.

  1. The novel. Always working on the novel (I’m trying to keep the hungry pack of wolves which are my short story ideas at bay). Sometime soon I expect galleys for “Tales out of Miskatonic U” wherein I have a few blog posts and twitter-fics (but then I also expected R’yleh Rising to be out last year as well, and I’m still waiting).

  2. I’m having a blast with my Nano piece. (Which I’m 1000 words ahead on, meaning I’m totally not procratinating–much. So there.)

    A con man gets recruited by a television reporter to act as a pundit during an interview. After the interview, the owner of the network tells them he is a inter-universal traveller and his is looking for help in protecting the Multiverse. They go on their first mission in a steampunk world, but fall through a dimensional corridor to a world ruled by the Soviet Union, where they rip off James Bond and steal a T-62 tank to escape…

    That’s what I got so far.
