Working away on The Book of Dreams and picking up speed at last. Up to Chapter 33 of 45 chapters. It's a BIG book for a BIG country. Here's my desktop wallpaper at the moment, reflecting exactly where I am in the story. Dana is wind-walking and dream-speaking in the West, and she has crossed the Rockies a few times now. When I finish this penultimate draft, I go back over the lot for the final polish. Deadline: September. Meanwhile, I am turning over my weekends to my new book. Can't breathe a word of it - bad luck to - but I am very excited. Do I get a life in there somewhere? In bits and pieces.
