Ladies and Gentlecars . . . I mean, gentlemen! (I've watched Pixar's Cars every day for the past two weeks with my son, you'll have to excuse me.) I have finished the sequel to Dragon Slippers, tentatively titled Dragon Helm. All I have to do now is show it to my agent, see what she thinks, make any changes she thinks would help, send it to my editor, begin the long editing process, and voila! In about two years we'll have a finished book! So those of you who are thinking, Hey, where's the sequel to Dragon Slippers? (You know who you are, you've been emailing me!) Worry no more! Sometime in 2009 you'll have your sequel. Unless, of course, either my agent or editor hates it so much that I have to scrap the whole thing. . . .
