From July 21 through July 25, the first book in my LEGENDS OF THE GOLDENS light urban fantasy series, FORBIDDEN PLAYGROUND is to be given away free from Soul Mate Publishing on FreeBooksy.com.
Though I find myself hanging in there with the housework, even though I have loads of writing and editing to do everyday, I’d rather get my readers interested in how my writing life is going–what I’m learning–than talking about household organization, no matter how important that is.
So, here goes my umteenth incarnation as a blogger:
Right now, I’m hoping I hear something from the agents and editors I pitched to at RWA Nationals, that is, before I self-publish the two novels in my Ages of Invention Series.
Have all the covers for the two novels ready to go. I just need to start handing out advanced reader copies for review.
And I’m anxious to finish my WIP space opera, to get to working on a young adult science fiction novella.
I’ve never enjoyed history more than that in the novels of my critique partners, and because of my background in science, I’d like to learn as much as I can about the way people thought about science throughout history. That’s what led to the writing of my historical science fictions.
The Union of Opposites website (theunionofopposites.com) explores different kinds of consciousness that I use in my stories. The site is philosophical and built on my published experiments, but it helps me create a new world of thought for my future novels.
That’s all for now. I’ll keep you posted.
Thanks for looking in,
S.B.K. Burns (Susan)

Entangled: Scotland of the early 18th century. They formed the epicenter of a time quake, fueled by alchemist Lily’s past-life obsessions.
