Tossed out of the library

It’s not every day that you’re asked to leave the library.  I wasn’t doing any harm.  No shouting, arguing about overdue fines or practicing my own version of the Dewey Decimal System.  Julie Andrews and I were quietly spending some time together before I picked up DH from work.

But there was a dimness to the light I didn’t notice as I sat next to a wall of windows.  An annoying electronic beeeeep punctuated the silence.

The power had gone out.  No storms thundering overhead, but it’s a brand new building, so I assume two wired crossed.  Or didn’t.  We were politely asked to leave.  My main concern was checking out “Home” by Julie Andrews and “The Story of Edgar Sawtelle” by David Wroblewski, but it was handled manually by the librarians.

Where have you been asked to leave?

Current projects

I’ve been reediting an ebook for my writer’s group titled “The Everything Writers Guide.”  It’s a compilation of several articles and touches on every aspect of writing from the initial idea to the publication.  I’m finding out that formating for an ebook is a different kettle of fish than a print book, but I’ll soon have it up on Smashwords.

My steampunk romance is in limbo, waiting the appearance of a spunkier heroine.  She’s currently too passive.  I hope she’ll grow a spine and show her true colors.

In the meantime, a dark, dark trilogy is forming and plot pieces are arranging themselves into a multi-layered puzzle.

You can catch me more frequently at or on Twitter and Facebook under writerslikeme.

Take care
