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
