Angel of Fire coming soon!

angeloffire_w11490_750

Since my last post Wild Rose Press offered me a contract for my book “Angel of Fire.” This is the cover they created for it. Today I submitted revisions to the final draft. With any luck the book will be available this summer!

Wild Rose Press answered my query!

Tuesday I submitted a query to The Wild Rose Press regarding my new story “The Guardian.” This morning in my inbox I found a personal reply from a senior editor there telling me they are reviewing my submission! I am very pleased. I’m sure Bobbe would be thrilled too. As most of you know she was my editor and chief and felt “The Guardian” was some of my best work. It was one of the last stories I’m working on that she got to read and the novel is dedicated to her.

Fingers crossed!!!

Romance or no? Mindswords 2 “Jake of Hearts”

Hello again,

I resumed work on Mindswords vol. 2 “Jake of Hearts.” I’m fifty pages along and I’m looking for input. How much romance do you want? In this installment, Jake turns up with life threatening symptoms from the “Runny face” sickness and Siobhan races to his side. Will Jake’s mother interfere or accept Siobhan’s help?

 

Coppermine photogallery installation bug

I had to repair the coppermine installtion script to get it to work correctly. In the populatemysqldb function that was CRASHING, I added a new variable $temp_data replaced all references to $GLOBALS[‘temp_data’] with the new variable and at the end assigned the local to teh global value:

$temp_data .= ‘<tr><td>’;
foreach($sql_query as $q)
{
$is_table = false;
//check if we are creating a table so we can add it to the output
if (preg_match(‘/(CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `?|CREATE TABLE `?)([\w]*)`?/i’, $q, $table_match))
{
$table = $table_match[2];
$is_table = true;
}

if (! mysql_query($q, $GLOBALS[‘mysql_connection’]))
{
$GLOBALS[‘error’] = $language[‘mysql_error’] . mysql_error($GLOBALS[‘mysql_connection’])
. ‘ ‘ . $language[‘on_q’] . ” ‘$q'”;

if ($is_table)
{
$temp_data .= “<br />” . sprintf($language[‘create_table’], $table)
. ‘&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;’ . $language[‘status’] . ‘:… ‘ . $language[‘nok’];
}
return false;
}
else
{
if ($is_table)
{
$temp_data .= “<br />” . sprintf($language[‘create_table’], $table)
. ‘&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;’ . $language[‘status’] . ‘:… ‘ . $language[‘ok’];
}
}
}

$GLOBALS[‘temp_data’] = $temp_data;
