Watchman for Daybreak Watch

The latest S’Mary’s World news is that work on Watchman for Daybreak is proceeding. As I type this, I’ve got about 2,500 words written and a couple of scenes blocked out in my head. As I never talk about stories while they are in progress, though, I haven’t much to say about it.

I don’t want to disappoint anyone, though, so why don’t you go read Neil Gaiman on the importance of libraries and imagination?

Oh, and if you’re desperate for fiction you can give “Island of the Panzer-Schnauzers” a try. My spies tell me that only four people have downloaded a copy (and one of them was me) so I know that there’s a great untapped need for schnauzer-ness out there.

Really, don’t you need some schnauzer in your life?

    Bought. Now before I download it to the teen’s kindle (I don’t have one yet), would it be suitable for the younger kids to read? They can and do read all the books on there now. A difficult question for someone else’s kids I know. They’ve read all the Harry Potter books and seen all the Star Wars movies. Without any spoilers can you give me any guidelines? I know it is possible to read it on the computer first, but not until I get new glasses : )

      Everything I’m writing these days, I’m writing with my kids in mind. That doesn’t mean that I’m writing down; but it means that I’m avoiding questionable subjects. Doesn’t mean that they’ll like it (though they might). My kids thought it was great, and asked me to read it to them again a couple of days. But I can’t imagine what anyone would find to take exception to.

        Perfect. I’m not going to assign it , so I don’t care if they like it. Actually, when I assign a book, I don’t care if they like it : ). I don’t shelter mine as much as some people . But there are some realities of life I’d rather the younger two not learn about yet.
        Plan B was to send it to my mom’s Kindle, but I won’t see her (or it) until August so I’m glad I can read it today.
