Posted in Cast, DAW, writing.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. I apologize for that. I have, on the other hand, been writing. I finished Grave and sent it to my editor, and she sent it back with revision notes (when I say notes, I mean phone call), and one of those revisions is a single sentence long and…not so small. And Cast in Flight was not finished, so I set Grave aside to percolate and finished Cast in Flight. And then, because it was – I know this will shock you all – way too long, I then spent the time cutting 11k words, and sent the book to my editor. And then I read books, and wrote a review column for F&SF. During … Continue reading

So. I finished Grave, as I think I might have mentioned. I have not finished the submission revisions, which I thought would take two weeks, max. Unfortunately, other deadlines, one stomach ‘flu, and the holiday season – I thought it was still, somehow, November on December the 10th, which tells you everything to need to know about my realistic relationship to the Real World (TM) at the current moment – have conspired against that. I’m about half-way through the revision. I’ve been changing every second sentence, which is not actually as helpful as it sounds. I have also been working on both War and Cast in Flight, and I am having so much fun with both of them, because it … Continue reading

Today is release day for Cast in Honor. For some reason, I thought it was the 27th, which is not today. This is the state of the writer’s brain =/. This isn’t a spoiler thread, as the book just came out – I’ll start a separate spoiler post in a few days. In other news, I have finished the first draft of Grave. I am working on War and Cast in Flight, and neither of those books is trying to murder me, for which I am profoundly grateful. I have just received page proofs for the mass market of Oracle, and am revising Grave for submission to my long-suffering (more long-suffering in my case than any author should have any … Continue reading

I know I’ve been conspicuously absent lately. I’ve been working on Grave, and I am almost finished it. But people have emailed to remind me that we’re close to release date and there are no Cast in Honor chapters. Here they are :)

I traveled to Brisbane, determined to finish Grave. Toronto to Brisbane is a long flight (or long, at least, in North American terms, and very long if one absolutely hates being on a plane, which your author emphatically does). On the first leg of the journey, I sat beside a young man who pretty much spent the entire flight to LA coughing. Or sleeping. Or coughing in his sleep. This did not fill me with confidence, but it’s not like I could get up and switch seats – these days, all flights appear to be full. I arrived in Brisbane after – yes – the longer of the two flights. (I almost wept when I checked ‘how much longer will … Continue reading
