The synopsis for book one of Little Dog, Son of a Bitch, is about done in both long form (writing document) and short form (selling document). [info]bravado111 and I made good use of our hang time together this weekend for some story conferencing, as well some parallel play writing time.

I also churned out first draft one-sheets for books two and three, just to show series direction as part of the sales proposal package. They're currently entitled Whelp, I Need Somebody and Littermates. After a few final touches today, the package is off our desks for a while, at least until our agents give us feedback on the synopsis and other materials.

The current production plan is for [info]bravado111 to write the first draft in May and/or June, and me to do the initial major revision pass in June and/or July. This schedule should survive even if I have to go back into cancer treatment, which means we'll have the book to first readers by the end of July, if not a bit earlier. I am happy to jam this in around Sunspin, simply to get it going.

It's nice to see a new project gathering steam.

Is this set in the same world as your River story?

Actually, no. The name coincidence was my writing mind playing tricks on me, sadly.

Aw. Oh well.
I just picked up The Modern Fae's Guide To Surviving Humanity too, so I'm looking forward to another of your stories.
