Time Enough For Updates · 11:21pm
I'm travelling to Las Vegas today for a work conference, so I get to wait a little bit longer to see the season finale, but I did want to commandeer an Internet connection long enough to share some awesome news.
Y'all remember my Writeoff-winning Cloverlestia historical romance Time Enough For Love? Or do you remember a month or two back when I teased that I'd gotten some gorgeous cover art commissioned for it? Well, Nadnerb just posted the finished art to DA, and I just completed the new scenes and edits for Chapter 2 (out of a planned four), so it's time to start dropping some honest-to-goodness story teasers around here!

Clover the Clever never asked for his life to get so complicated. It was bad enough tricking Imperatrix Celestia, war-goddess of the Three Tribes, out of her drunken coup against Queen Platinum. But now Celestia's come back and traded her claim on the sun for a chance to woo him.
On top of that, Star Swirl's saddled him with a mysterious magical necklace and a uniquely bleak and pointless prophecy: If he's brave enough, and if he's clever enough, he just might survive Celestia's attentions for long enough to break her heart.
My work and weekend schedules are both insane until mid-November, but I'm excited at the editing progress, and with art this gorgeous there's just no way I can let the story languish. As soon as this conference is over, I'm gonna pin down a publication date and get a pre-reader or two to double-check the new material.
Speaking of TEFL and Writeoffs, if you've been keeping up on the site you might have noticed a suspiciously familiar name in this month's medalists. Yep -- CoffeeMinion's "Time Enough For Wub" is something of an homage to my time-travel romance, and while it doesn't share the same continuity or structure, it's still a fun read about a lovingly cracked ship (namely, the S.S. ScratchSwirl, which has now permanently sailed into my headcanon fleet). I am given to understand that's also in editing, and I'll be sure to let you all know when it makes the jump to FIMFic.
