Cold cold nights under chrome and glass

Here’s recent progress on my comic/sci-fi young adult project where a girl becomes a ninja and fights aliens with much ass-kicking and many LOLs but not a whole lot of kissing (or any kissing, to be frank) plus BONUS Bruce Lee’s ghost, a vintage Thunderbird, zenlightenment on the fly, and fat stacks of Cool Ranch Doritos.

    Project: Ninja Planet
    Deadline: Sooner or Later
    New words written: 1415 (crappy.)
    Present total word count: 28,455 words

    Things accomplished in fiction: Paulie the Alien Abduction Survivor antagonizes an FBI agent; Bam-Bam and Franklin run interference.

    Things accomplished in real life: Went to the post office; tackled some business and personal emails; ultimately got the inbox back down to zero; did some research on the net and trudged through some of my old-fashioned actual paper books too; fiddled with yesterday’s semi-finished proposal; got rained on when I went to grab myself some lunch.

    Other: Lately I’ve gotten a rash of inquiries re: the Clementine paperback. You can order it right here on Amazon. It’s not a myth, or an elaborate internet hoax! I’ve even seen these bad-boys out in the wild, and signed a few.

    Other, redux: I only have about one more month here in Seattle, so if you want to order signed copies of my books from the University Book Store, there’s no time like the present. Instructions are available here. I will do my best to set up something like this in Tennessee, but it might take me a bit – so if you want something signed as a gift or something otherwise time-sensitive, I recommend you order soon. I can’t guarantee any orders placed after the second week in April.

  1. Cherie I really appreciate your posts and blogs. We met at a Phoenix ComicCon last year and since then I have my first Steampunk Novel out, the sequel will be out this summer, and my second book on Alternative History gets published next week. You are an inspiration for me and I know from personal experience that you are a down to Earth and wonderful person. Keep up the great writing and the realistic blogs!
