It’s me, and if I’m warning you that this will be long, well. This is prob­ably going to be long. I did consider split­ting it into two posts, but there doesn’t seem to be a length limit in Word­Press, so. (For the record, my long-suffering husband suggested that I split it into three. Yes, he survived.) So, first: The Sun Sword has been reis­sued in trade paper­back (which is the larger, non-stan­­dard-size paper­back format). Yes, this means they are more expen­sive, sorry =/. This happened in July, but I didn’t find out about it until the end of August. I’ve added the rele­vant infor­ma­tion to the book pages here. I am not, as will become imme­di­ately obvious, much of a photog­ra­pher >.<. As you can … Continue reading

I appear to have missed the month of June =/. This month, I turned in Cast in Oblivion. I have not turned in First­born yet, but will hope­fully finish it before the end of this month; it was more compli­cated to split the book than I’d orig­i­nally intended, and required a couple of running starts, but I am now on the (new) last chapter. I am very glad that I don’t have to worry about the length of the book, since it was the shorter half of the split. Jody Lee, the cover artist, finished the emer­gency Unplanned Novel cover before I finished the revi­sion >.>. I will share when I can. I am writing the first Severn novel next, Elantra-wise. The next Cast novel should be about … Continue reading

I have been writing. And revising. I am almost finished Cast in Oblivion in first draft. Almost. I am half-way through the revi­sions neces­sary to make First­born a book – although that’s a best guess, because it’s not as exact a metric. Doing my taxes did not, demon­strably, kill me. I have not heard back about the Severn books, beyond yes we do want them. So: unless some­thing changes in the future, they will happen. The minute I have certain news, I will share it. I used to think that “still writing” was … not very much of an update. I felt a bit self-conscious about posting “still writing” news – I assumed that people would assume that I was still writing, and there was there­fore nothing of substance to report to them. But: some news. … Continue reading

I thought today was Monday. While telling someone that release day was tomorrow, I real­ized that tomorrow was actu­ally today, January 23rd, 2018. That’s what January has been like, so far… Cast in Decep­tion is now out in the wild. It is avail­able in ebook and in audio­book, and Khris­tine Vham is the narrator for the latter (I’m very, very happy about this, and some­times feel I should nail her feet to the studio floor so she will always be the narrator – and this would, of course, be bad of me).

To those who cele­brate, Happy Holi­days! I have been writing, but at the moment, have very little to show for it; my short Severn story is now 28k words and not finished. I hope to finish it before the New Year, but in the frenetic, panicked busy work of holiday prepa­ra­tions, I am not sure how feasible this is. Chapter one of Cast in Decep­tion is here: Cast in Decep­tion 01. Re: audio­book versions: there appears to be a phys­ical box of 13 CDs, but the down­load­able version doesn’t seem to be avail­able on iTunes yet, or rather, the link to it doesn’t seem to be avail­able there. I’ll update those links when we’re closer to pub date. So the audio­book links look … Continue reading
