A Little Clarification

Okay, I have had several readers mention that they found my blog through Miss Snark's (le sigh, miss her . . .) Crap-o-meter and are confused as to which book is which. And where the heck is that ghost book?! (and no, Stephen, this isn't just for you. You were just the straw on the proverbial camel's back.:)) So here are my books.

Book One: Adult Classic Fantasy entitled, "The Chain and the Sword." This is the book I got my agent with.

Book Two: A YA Contemporary Fantasy entitled, "Autumn Wings." This is the book Jodi and I are currently preparing for submission.

Book Three: A YA Contemporary Fantasy entitled, "Life After Theft." This is the book from Miss Snark. (le sigh) Unfortunately, it's not finished. I signed with Jodi in the middle of writing it so it got lost amid revisions of "The Chain and the Sword." The good news is that it will be my keep-busy-writing-so-I-don't-go-crazy project while "Autumn Wings" is out on submission.

Book Four: The Book-which-must-not-be named. A classic Romance that actually does not have a title--although I joke about calling it "Basking in Basque." (Hehe.) It is my official trunk novel and although I really like the story, it needs a lot (lot, lot, lot) of work. This novel may someday see the sun . . . but I doubt it.:)

So that is what I mean when I refer to "The Books." Hope that helps.:)

You know...that's something I was wondering about, too. I just figured you'd mentioned them in an earlier post and I didn't want to reveal my ignoramousness by asking.

That's okay, David. I already knew about your ignoramousness.;)

I love you, too, Aprilynne. :P

I recently found your blog while scouring the Crap-o-meter for inspiration on writing a synopsis (am I the only one who finds it a wretched process to write your own synopsis, even though I can describe every other book I read with considerable ease and elan?). I tried to figure out the books, too, and now I get it. Four books AND three kids. You are amazing.
