Plotting and Planning

So I am moving next week and starting a new graduate program in American history. This is another step in my on going quest to gain a Ph.D. in history and I would be lying if I said the entire process hasn't terrified me like nothing else. Mostly the last month or so has been made up of me trying to get all my paperwork in, find an apartment via long distance means and freaking out.

On a brighter note my parents got me a Kindle Fire for an early birthday present (my birthday is at the end of the month). I've been spending the last couple days fooling around with it, uploading the ebooks I already own and getting any free ebooks that look half-way readable.

I got the galley for Heart of Water and Stone and have been reading through that. You can pre-order it for 15% off the normal price by the way. Also going over edits for The Kraken Lord and the Eater of the Sun.

Writing wise I've been working on a vampire story set in the New Kingdom of Ancient Egypt. The story is the product of me challenging myself to write a vampire romance I'd actually want to read since I'm not a huge fan of the sub-genre.

I also started writing a little porn-y ficlet mostly for my own amusement which halfway through gave me a possible idea for this open call over at Less Than Three Press:

Less Than Three Press is seeking stories about what happens when someone chances upon a message cast adrift and left to be guided by fate or chance. From the classic message in the bottle washed up on a sandy beach to whatever the imagination spins, tell us your tales of what happens when that message is at last found and read …

Seriously I can't wait to see what everyone else does for this.
