Stoked for September

The onset of September has me feeling like the monkey Steve in Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs (Steve, awesomely, is voiced by everyone’s favorite magical unicorn Neal Patrick Harris).

Excited! Excited!

My Writing the Novel class with Jim Sallis is starting back up. This marks my fourth semester of re-enrollment. Why would I take the same class over again, you ask? Because the man can wield a red pen like nobody’s business. He is absolutely gifted, a diamond in the rough. And, because there’s nothing I like more than sitting in a roomful of like-minded people and talking about storycraft. School starts on Monday and I’m psyched.

I finally finally finally am ready to start querying on The Iron Key. I’ve got a list of appropriate agents to sub to all prepped, and now I’m trying to mangle my query letter into something magic. Brute force works, right? Anyway, pretty much the entire publishing industry is on hol right now, so I’ve got until early-mid September to get it together.

And in September we’ll be kicking off some cool new content at my group blog The Parking Lot Confessional, namely guest blogs and interviews from published Young Adult, Science Fiction, and Fantasy authors. I can’t even articulate how pumped I am about this. Suuuuuuuuuuper pumped.

Last reason I am excited about September? I live in the desert, dudes.

(Cue cry of solitary hawk).

July is the cruelest month, it’s like the January of the Southwest. September means temps dropping back into the double digits. And I am all about that.
