Posted in Cast, Elantra, Mira.

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 :)

Posted in Cast, Elantra, Shane Rebenschied, Mira.

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 

Posted in Cast, Elantra, chapters.

I managed, due to the laws of physics, to drop a bowl in the kitchen. The bowl did not survive. Sadly, a piece of flying glass decided to avenge the dish, and flew up, cutting my right pinky. Some argument occurred thereafter in the household, because seriously, a triangular cut on the front pad of the pinky does not constitute an emergency.

I still have copyedits to review (when they arrive) and AAs (the HLQ version of page proofs), and the book will be done. And I have a cover rough which I cannot share yet, which is making me cry. I will post the cover the minute I have permission. Ahem. No one likes to see a grown author cry, so I will move right along. I am about a third of the way through Grave. I admit that I have avoided looking at any reviews whatsoever for Touch, because I am still … Continue reading 

Posted in Cast, Elantra, Worldbuilders.

Today, the Worldbuilder’s auction that includes Cast in Flame went live on ebay. I am going to quote what I sent with the manuscript itself. When Worldbuilders came around this year (2013), and Pat sent email inviting donations and contributions for his annual drive, I had my usual reaction: I looked at what everyone else was contributing, and felt inadequate. (Because: writer. Everyone else’s ideas always look exciting or interesting or original because they haven’t been living in my head for years.) But this year I had an idea. I mean, I had several, but this particular idea did not immediately strike me as feeble or uninteresting. (See: writer, above). I was, when I received the email, almost finished Cast … Continue reading
