Tantor Media has just released The Uncrowned King, the second book of the Sun Sword series, in audio, narrated by Eva Wilhelm, the narrator for the House War series. As you can see, they’re using a different cover for the audiobook, (they’re using a different cover for Broken Crown as well, but I kind of missed that one >.>). In other news, I am going on a desperately needed writing retreat (deadlines), but will be back for Can*Con in Ottawa. This is very last minute for me because I wasn’t certain I could make it, so I don’t have a schedule that I can post. I will post a schedule if it arrives before I get back from writing, but I’ll probably be a little bit scarce until then.

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.
This month saw my thirtieth wedding anniversary. I finished, and then revised for submission, Cast in Wisdom, and it is, until copy-edits, at Mira. I finished a novella of questionable length (49k), which was one of two short story prompts for the pixel project charity over two years ago T_T. Speaking of short story prompts that were even less short, ahem. Today, I opened the untitled Severn novel, and the untitled first book in The Burning Crown arc. Between the two, there’s 100k words, but I had to put them aside to write Cast in Wisdom and reread all the other West words (which, to be honest, I have not quite finished yet. There’s something vaguely like homework about this, and … I’m not sure I enjoy turning the … Continue reading
I am, for the moment, done with the Writing Process posts, in part because they were an attempt to answer a question which has cropped up in different ways over the last few years. They were an enormous amount of fun for me. I do have one more post — about the evolution of process — but it’s half-finished, and it has been set aside in favour of taxes. Which is about as much fun as it sounds. Taxes are being done early this year because the annual writing retreat has been moved forward to the end of April. Which would mean I’d be in a different country at about the time Tax Panic sets in. So: early tax filing for me. Writing news: First, the … Continue reading
It’s been three and three quarter years since the publication of Oracle, the sixth book in The House War series in hardcover. Today, on February 19, 2019, book seven, Firstborn, has been released into the wild, dressed to go out in style in a cover by Jody Lee. It is available in audiobook format from audible.com (apparently an audible.com exclusive, judging by the banner across the cover). It is available in hardcover and as an ebook. (It is available as an ebook in Australia.) I am both excited and nervous.
