I am sorry. I am so very late with this. I went to and returned from MidAmerican II, where Sheila Gilbert won a much deserved Hugo (Yes, of course I’m biased.) I had a wonderful time, met new readers and old readers, and did not drop the ball too badly (I think, again: bias). I read the prologue for War at my reading. Because that’s what I wanted to read >.>. The cover for Cast in Flight has been live on retailers for a while, so I am posting the full wraparound cover for those of you who want to read the back :).

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 know most of you have probably seen this on-line (at places like Amazon or B&N), but I just got the official cover released to me today, so: here’s the cover for Cast in Honor. Which I love love love. It’s more of a thematic cover than a technically accurate one – but when a cover conveys a mood or a tone to me, it works. Shane Rebenschied is, as usual, the artist responsible for the final cover; Kathleen Oudit is the art director. I want to keep them both for the rest of my career. I kind of want to enlarge the cover, print it out, and hang it on every wall in my home. As for me, I … Continue reading
Actually, let me start with the news first: Mira has bought two more Cast novels! I only have a tentative title for one: Cast in Flight. Which is all I’ll say about it until after Cast in Honor is published. ——- Here is the cover for Cast in Honor, by the inimitable Shane Rebenschied. I love this cover. I mean, I love love LOVE it. I try not to tease about covers or things I can’t share yet – but even I had to mention it when I first saw it because there’s only so many times you can bounce up and down in your household before all of your family starts avoiding you. No, I did not count the … Continue reading
