I think probably all of y’all who will be voting on it have already done so, but just in case there are any of you who haven’t voted yet, the poll to name my iPhone is still open and will be running until the 27th.
Those of you who have names in the running, be sure you yourselves have voted! And feel free to put forth shameless campaigning in the comments to sway any last minute deciders. Be creative. I may well be tempted to give a consolation prize to the most creative campaign attempt!

So as of Friday I started slowly poking away at the new story I’ve been asked by my editor to write: the Civil War one set in the Faerie Blood universe. Only a tiny pittance of words so far, but it’s a start, and I have a soft deadline of August 10th and a hard deadline of August 30th to shoot for.
I do at least have the rough sketch of the plot worked out, so hopefully this should just be a question of whipping through the words. (She said, being long out of the habit of actually producing regular new words, and seriously needing to get back into it… so here’s hoping this thing will get me back in gear.)
The story is tentatively titled “The Blood of the Land”, which ties into the whole Warder thing with making blood ties to the land they’re protecting. And it’s a tie that can be broken or tainted, which is something I didn’t get into in Faerie Blood. This promises to be a darker and spookier story. I’m going to have fun with it.
