Notice has a release date!
August 24th is the happy day, which seems like a long time away, but I'm sure it'll arrive quickly. I'm very excited for my first novel to join the company of my other stories, and I'm excited for this story to find readers at last. I've been in love with dragons for as long as I can remember, and I've been writing Notice for a long time. It started out as a short story, but the members of the writer's group to which I've belonged for a long time all agreed that it wanted to be something longer. So I put it aside and then took it out, then put it aside, then took it out, and did this for over a year, and then this past February during school vacation, I took a hard look at it, and then it grabbed me and pulled me into the computer and I wrote the rest of it in about six marathon days. Then I polished it up, sent it in, and it was accepted in March. Now it's May, and Notice is in edits. Very cool.
