On Thursday I got the contract for Heroes 5 and 6, which I have signed and mailed back. So those books are a go. I tell you, with the economic times being what they are, and the fact that my numbers aren't stellar, I was really concerned ACE wouldn't want the next installments. But there was a question asked of my editor if I was working on anything else, and I told him about books 5 and 6. Oh, and the team book, but that's not ready to be seen by anyone yet. And then there was a question about when I could hand in books 5 and 6. And then there was the discussion of certain particulars of the contract. But I couldn't feel confident about anything until I saw it in writing. Which I have, so I'm relieved.

I also feel good about the fact that ACE was asking about new work before At Risk even came out.

So I'm working on book five, getting it ready to send to the agent, and I've just come across an appalling sentence. I'll be the first to admit that I play fast and loose with the rules of grammar. That was a deliberate choice, because everything happens inside Lee's head, and I, for one, don't think to myself according to the rules of grammar. But this sentence was so garbled I have no idea what I meant or what I was thinking.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I really admire people who can knock out the finished product in a draft or two. I don't think I'll ever be able to do that.

Hi there:

I have no idea when the cover will be up, though I admit to being surprised that it isn't up yet. I can give you a link to another site that will show you the cover.

It's terribly unprofessional for me to say this, but at this point I don't care: please keep in mind that I have no control over the covers.

Here's there link: http://www.sff.net/people/jackbyrne/moore.htm

Thanks for the link! Wow, very different from the styles of the previous 3 books.
