The Linen Butterfly Is Back On The Table

After a long hiatus that included a very stressful final term, graduation, and loads of travel in a couple of weeks' time, I am back home and I have been working on putting some revisions on "The Linen Butterfly."

I don't know how extensively the book will have to be rewritten yet.  I have completely removed the original ending including a long subplot where one of the main characters discovers a past life as a somewhat-famous medieval diplomat, and I have added a subplot that adds some dimension to another reincarnation subplot and creates a nice plot twist where there was none before.  I completely re-wrote Chapter 8 almost from scratch, because it featured a rather gimmicky scene involving a rather Hollywood ploy to capture a city that just felt like I was drawing the longbow, MGM-style.

I'm also going to be doing a major stylistic revision and getting it looked over by as many good proof readers as I can.  I still feel like it needs something.

I'm going to try to get it ready by September for release at RainFurrest in Seattle.  If I can't, then my second choice will be January for release at Further ConFusion in San Jose.
