Here at the Secret Lair, we've finished getting ready for winter. We installed the snow tires on our cars, put the patio furniture away, and gave the snowblower a tune-up. In accordance with Prophecy, we performed the sacrifices and spoke the forbidden words. We pray we have appeased the ancient evil that dwells within the mountain. You know, normal stuff.

, the second book in the 'Hybrid' series is nearing completion. I'm delighted to share the final cover art:
|Yaella has grown up. Zura has grown cranky.|
The book has been making numerous rounds of the 'Readers of the Apopsicle'; have I mentioned lately how awesome these people are? With their help, I'm hoping for a release somewhere around mid-December. As always, I might let that slip a bit, because I think 'great' is better than 'on time'.
While all that's going on, I'm moving ahead with the third book in the series. It doesn't have a name yet, but it's about 30,000 words' worth of indecipherable scribbles. So that's neat.
