Pine Lake Press

A big, kinda scary week here, and Halloween is not the frightening part. Pine Lake Press, LLC is official. The logo above is what I designed, but low and behold, the world has changed and I've learned I have to have "vector art" if I want a logo. Well, that turns out to be complicated, but the designer I'm working with is going to try to find something ready-made that can be adapted to come as close as possible to the image above.
I have to say it is frustrating to be forced to use "pre-fab" art when I can design my own, but technology is what it is. Can't fight all the beasts, so I'll have to be content with posting my image here.

I'm Back . . .

 It's a beautiful autumn day, much like this photo taken a year ago on Washington Island, and I'm returning to this blog after a year of Pine Lake Stories. The "blogopera" was great fun, but the "real" writing needs so much time, and there are never enough hours in a day.

For those of you who are interested (if there's actually anyone out there who IS interested, please let me know), here's the short version of my grand plan:
1) I'm hoping my novel, The World Undone, will be published by the end of the year (book launch party will be a blast, I promise)
2) C.C. Crescent's first novel, Turning Points, should be out shortly after the New Year  
3) The anthology of Lake Forest Stories is coming along. We've got some great manuscripts in the works

In the meantime, check out  It's an online collection of stories, and they've chosen one of mine for publication.

And a message from C.C. --->

The Pine Lake Trail has come to a resting point until at least the first of the year, as those of you who followed Pine Lake Stories already know. The old episodes are still available at www.pinelakestories.
 C.C. Crescent is busy with another project in the works, namely getting her first novel, Turning Points, polished for publication. TTFN
