There are many things afoot here in Virginia - the list is getting longer all the time! This is a good thing, I think, and I'm working furiously to get as many things accomplished as I can before school starts up again and I have to head for the day job.
Right now I'm working on cleaning up the opening chapters of SUPERFREAK 2 to send in to Tantrum Books for approval, so that is both exciting and nerve wracking! I'm also working on a new WIP to send to a critter and waiting to hear about some queries I've sent out and keeping my fingers crossed.
I'm also putting together a list of schools, organizations, libraries, and such to send information to about author visits and workshops. If you or your organization would be interested, please let me know! You can use the contact form or email me at vebarger @ gmail.com (take out the spaces).
There will be another chapter posted this week for INTO THE ETHER as well, and if you haven't followed it, there's no time like the present! It's my serial free read, and you can find it under "Fun Stuff."
Last (but not least) I'm going to be at the Teen Author Summer Slam in Raleigh, NC next weekend, so if you're in the area, check it out! There will be lots of us there and lots of fun!
