Pre-reader copies of book two are out, and I have had a marvelous two weeks of not being able to work on it as I await comments.  I should have worked on important things like the book description and query letters, but since I despise such things I allowed myself to spend the time writing a series of short scenes between my characters. 


They are small vignettes without thought for continuity, in strange places and at strange times.  I have no idea if they will ever make it into a book, but they revealed to me some wonderful things about the lives of my characters outside of the events of the main plot, and I hope the scenes may find some future life somewhere.


This may not be exactly the news I know you are waiting for, and believe me, I am as anxious to get book two into your hands as you are to receive it.  But I think these stories enrich the world and the lives of its inhabitants.  And, who knows?  I may have just written the first ten thousand words of book three.


Oh, I also did a quick draft of the cover for Book Two.  Not sure about it (or its title) yet, but we will see if it grows on me.
