Thanks Steve and a possible clarification

Name: Tally Source: unca20090314.htm I have not yet submitted the Route 666/Wild Hunt novella to ANY publisher or journal. My "current" publisher has done the forthcoming and two previous books of SC ghost lore. I am curious if I should submit the novella to the current publisher under the "similar...

Thank you Unca Harlan

Name: Tally Source: unca20090314.htm I have stricken the offending verbiage and now the ball is back in their court on that clause. Should I submit the novella to the "current" publisher and wait for the likely rejection on the grounds of "we don't DO that" OR will that lead me to be unable to subm...

a quandary seeking guidance

Name: Tally Source: unca20090314.htm I have a bit of a dilemna. My publisher's revised contract says that they have right of first refusal for ANY of my writings for 2 years from signing and for any in a similar vein as long as the 3rd book is in print. I signed in October 2008. As some of you know...

Thanks for all the advice

Name: Tally Source: unca20090314.htm Sadly, I'm too pressed for time to go back and name everyone individually, but thanks for all the advice concerning my first guest appearance at a con. Debbie, thanks for coming by to see me at the SC Book Festival Saturday. Hope the snow didn't wreak too much h...

To Steve B.

Yes, I'll be rambling about SC ghosts at ConCarolinas. It's all part of my grand plan to heckle the "Ghost Hunters" from a panel at DragonCon instead of risking the loot by doing from the floor.

Thanks for the advice. It seems to be a good place to make a debut, since it's more of a local Con. Since I am a fan who may be selling books, the big test will be not to go in costume.

Condolences and other news

Name: Tally Source: unca20090314.htm Harlan- So sorry to hear about Phil Farmer. The work lives on. I know that's weak tea at a time like this. We're here and we all care. In other, hopefully more pleasant news, I will be a guest at my first Con this year. I will be at ConCarolinas in Charlotte som...

Books to overstock sellers...good or bad?

Name: Tally Source: unca20090314.htm A query for the published folks...my second book of SC ghost stories has been listed as an overstock title (2 weeks before they want book 3). I can't afford to buy them right now. Is this a good or a bad thing? Should I scrape up some change and snatch them up? ...

Thanks

Name: Tally Source: unca20081110.htm I hope so. The contract is a bit more convoluted than I remember, but I think the demographics of the area covered by this one may lead it to sell better. Of course, I'd feel a bit better if the economy wasn't in free-fall as I start it. At least the stories wil...

tooting my own horn

Name: Tally Source: unca20081110.htm Well, the publisher decided they did want a 3rd book of SC ghostlore after 3 months of waiting. The due date is 2/9/09 for the manuscript with a planned release date of late Spring / early Summer 2009. Sadly, this means that the ghost novella I've at work on for...

Lovecraft, Poe, E.A. Robinson, Masters (both Spoon Rivers), Hughes, Eliot, and James Dickey all come to mind. Rimbaud's not bad in the right mood.
