I have a cover for Cast in Wisdom. I’m (obviously) not going to spoil anything, but will say the setting in which Kaylin finds herself is relevant :). Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I’m going to leave this in the hands of artist Shane Rebenschied and art director, Kathleen Oudit, and I will go back to struggling with words that have not yet reached a stage where they are even a glimmer in the eyes of either.

I am back from Worldcon, but my brain is still in both convention and Ireland timezone mode. And while I was coming home, The Broken Crown was released in audio book. Eva Wilhelm is the narrator (she also narrated all of the House War series). I’ve added links to the book page, but will just cut and paste the links on that page. Find it at Tantor Media • Audible US/UK • iTunes US/CA/UK I did have a great time at the Worldcon, but on the way home in the taxi — no word of a lie — got the copy-edited manuscript to review. And a few other things, as well. So copy-edits are what I’ll be working on until the 6th of September.
July was a month of revisions, book review column and cover copy. But: revisions for Cast in Wisdom are done, and I am once again rereading all of the words for the unfinished books that I didn’t touch while revising (revision being an entirely separate part of my brain than creating). There was a lot of cursing #pastme. I am going to the Worldcon in Dublin this year, which is just over two weeks away. So I’m desperately trying to get as many words as possible before then.

This is the thread for discussion of War by people who have a) already read it and want to talk about it or b) don’t care about being spoiled. I found parts of the discussion thread to Firstborn a bit difficult — it’s been a while since I’ve had spoiler thread posts on this web-site, and I stayed out of book discussion posts on the forum, when they were active. But I have now figured out how to filter things, and I will remain blissfully ignorant while struggling with the current books, one of which is giving me minor ulcers, I swear.
ETA: It’s come to my attention elsewhere on-line that some readers think WAR is the final book in the Essalieyan universe. They are… not happy with it because of all the things the book isn’t. I forget, because I live too much inside my own head, that what I’ve known for years – and talked about for the same years – simply isn’t known by everyone who is… not me. War is the final book in the House War series arc. It’s the final book in the arc that belongs to Jewel Markess ATerafin. WAR is not the final Essalieyan book. I’ve sold the first four books of what will be the final arc in this universe: The Burning Crown. It’s June 18th in North America, which means — as of midnight … Continue reading
