It's the first Wednesday of the month, so it's IWSG. I've got a few things on at the moment, from a romance novel I've got to finish for someone else to a memoir that's kind of a long term thing for someone. As always, the ghost writing means that it's a case of balancing projects and their different deadlines/requirements.
But I do have a couple of things of my own. I've found an illustrator for the cover of my novel 'The Glass', and I'm guessing that we're going to have it out in early 2014 now. It started life as a parody of the whole angels and demons strand of paranormal/urban fantasy, and ended up managing to fit a broadly humanist outlook into the middle of jokes about Bede and fights between supernatural powers.
I'm also working on what is currently looking like a big UF thing with lots of faeries in, but it doesn't have that many jokes for once (so it's more in the vein of Searching or Witch Hunt). But with this one it feels like it's going to need a lot of work on the second draft to turn it from something fairly standard into something interesting enough to bother with. How do you go about turning your work into something more than just the norm? Are you balancing lots of projects at the moment?
