Things are moving apace.
Got a verbal offer on "7". The verbal offer triggered an agent hunt, and those queries just went out. I like my publisher, but as writing transitions from something on the side to a primary job, I feel obligated to start seeking more options and to negotiate smarter.
Two established authors have asked me to collaborate. I expect to have the first draft of both manuscripts done in four months. When nothing interrupts 5000-6000 words are going on the page between 0600 and 0930. Some of it is decent, too.
And, for some reason, two different chapters of the Romance Writers of America have asked me to put together on-line courses on violence, criminals and cop stuff. That's odd.

Teaching a seminar tomorrow and pitching the Conflict Communications course Wednesday.
Busy is good.

I'd be willing to bet that at some point, whether you initiate the conversation or not, Writer's Digest Books will want something from you. I've got a great many of their titles. They'd do themselves and the writing world a favor if you were to write them a book (sounds similar to your RWA gig).
