O wait. I'm supposed to have an ROW80 update, no? Does it count that I've read two more books from the Pile At Home That Never Seems To Diminish And Was Supposed To Be Done Before I Ordered More (and yet I caved and ordered some new releases)? Or that I have a new idea for a story (another one from a dream!)?

New ideas are very exciting, but they don't count at all. There's one week to go in this round, and then when round three starts, I've got to edit something and get back on the query wagon. I always work better with deadlines; here's a good one: Carina Press is still open for submissions (last I heard they're closing for submissions in September) and I've got that paranormal romance Druid's Moon that just might fit...

I love living in Europe for how easy it is to travel from one place to the next. We were in London for a weekend last month!

Do you work better with a deadline or without?
Do you know of other small presses that are currently open for submissions?
