Exciting times! We’re now in the process of sending out queries to agents and publishers for our first novel.
We’d like to send a big thank-you to all our ‘first-readers’ who gave us feedback on the book. It’s been lovely to have so many folks interested in reading what we’ve written and letting us know what worked and what didn’t.
For those of you who haven’t had an opportunity to read it yet, this is a YA, urban fantasy, geared toward a female audience. It deals with some of the standard plot elements you’d expect – friends, parents and school, with big helpings of supernatural badness thrown on top. Our core themes are friendship, loss and freedom/responsibility.
If you know any publishers or agents specifically looking for urban fantasy that’s more focused on character and plot than romance, please let us know.

Wow, a truly lovely comment from Elisa on her blog uncoveringthe1in7:
This story truly teaches us the power of compassion, and that ugliness is only caused by malice of the heart and not physical differences (such as: deformities, the way we transport ourselves, or communicate)
The world is full of beautiful, interesting people, so many of whom we never get a chance to meet. The joy of writing is that it can forge these connections across space and time to bring us together over an idea.
Many thanks Elisa, for having the courage to talk publicly about your experiences with cerebral palsy. These are things we all need to be aware of so the right concerns are raised and needs are met. We’ll be following your blog.

We’ve posted two more stories to ReadWave: Legacy, and Manual Override. Both are receiving some very nice comments. The Pitch, which we posted last week, has been selected for the main page of the site.

We’ve decided to publish some of our short stories via Smashwords as an easy way to provide eBook versions of our content. You’ll see links to the Smashwords page showing up on stories as they are published.
I’ve been very impressed with Smashwords so far. I’ve set up a ‘publisher’ account so Rebecca and I can have separate author profiles but still manage our books using one account. Smashwords will even provide ISBNs if needed, though we should be able to get a free block from Collections Canada.
We’ve published two of Rebecca’s stories: Legacy and Just Well Loved and we’ll be publishing the rest over the next few weeks.

After weeks of sweat, tears and smoking brain cells, we have finally finished our author bios. I knew they were going to be hard to write, but apparently I underestimated the difficulty of boiling a life down into a few hundred relevant words. We have also mostly completed our site refurbishment. A few things may yet get moved around, but the majority of changes have been incorporated.
If you have any comments or suggestions on our bios or site changes, please let us know by posting a message on the forum or by using the contact link.
