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. Below is my current schedule — I think loca­tions are subject to change, but not times. Kaffeeklatsch: Michelle Sagara Format: Kaffeeklatsch 15 Aug 2019, Thursday 17:00 — 17:50, Level 3 Foyer (KK/LB) (CCD) Stroll with the stars: Friday Format: Stroll 16 Aug 2019, … Continue reading

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
