It's progress, not perfection ...

Well, it's been awhile, hasn't it? The big news is that I finally got an agent for my first novel! The book still needs some work before it's ready for the marketplace, but I'm not afraid of work (unless it's boring and tedious ... but novel writing is neither, so I'm very excited).

Since I last posted, I've made a couple of vampire fairies--characters who appear in my second novel, which I'm working on in between rewrites of the first. Caledonia and Scotia are their names.

I'm also deeply involved in a commissioned figure of Anne Boleyn. She has been challenging, to say the least, but I'm finally making headway. She has a bit of the feel of a Renaissance Italian Madonna to her. I like that about her. I only hope the client does, too. I'm having a little trouble finding a good faux fur (the client wanted faux, although I prefer the richness of the real thing).

Halloween here was uneventful. I'm busy devouring the left-over Mounds and Milky Ways ... which my waistline sure as heck doesn't need!

Here's a shout-out to Kimberley in Paris and Michael in Fife. Michael, are you busy with the by-election, or have you stopped speaking to me? I miss hearing from you!

Life is good.

Hi Nina, how exciting about your book! I wish you tons of success!( and I can't wait to see Anne, she's always been one of my favorites.) One of these days I'm going to ask you to make me a witch...doll that is! :)
