This was supposed to be a post at the end of November, but November kind of got away from me, in the sense that a book was due at the end of it and it was not finished yet. But it is now December, and the book is finished, so I am allowed to post. Or sleep. Or both, although it’s harder to watch what I say when I’m sleeping. I am behind on email. I am behind on tumblr. I am behind on face­book. I will be behind on twitter as of tomorrow. I am about a week’s worth of words behind on Oracle. But: I am finished Cast in Flame. November was largely one small first world crisis after another (things like: washing machine dying), with writing wedged in … Continue reading

It’s Cana­dian Thanks­giving today — Amer­ican Thanks­giving is in November. But, as I’m Cana­dian, we cele­brate in October in these parts :) In between my last report and this one, I finished the page proofs for TOUCH, which is sched­uled for January, 2014, in hard­cover. I will have a cover to post very shortly, and will change the book on the front page at that time. I am now over half way through Cast in Flame, although I’m now wondering about the title, given the compli­ca­tions that have arisen from the events at the end of Cast in Sorrow. I am now over halfway (with luck!) through Oracle, which is the new title for the second last book in the House War series. So writing has actu­ally been … Continue reading

It’s a little on the later side because I am packing for Worldcon, but Cast In Sorrow should be avail­able in the wild, deliv­eries and orders willing. The ebook should be avail­able at all ebook sellers as of today; at least one person has said their library has it. The audio book, however, is not yet avail­able. My publisher said, in response to my panicked email, that Audible​.com will be releasing the book, but a bit later (in September). I’m sorry about the delay >.< (Edited to add: from Laura in comments below: The audio­book is now avail­able.) I am actu­ally writing this on my iPad at the book­store, because of course the books arrived here just after I’d left for the day yesterday, and I won’t … Continue reading

I am home. I have more or less recov­ered from the flight between Melbourne and Toronto (Michelle is not the world’s best trav­eler, for all kinds of reasons, not the least of which is: when I get off the plane, the first thing I want to do is crawl into my own bed and sleep for a day.) I loved Melbourne, though. I got a lot of work done, there. I have been working on Cast in Flame. My simple “Kaylin needs to find a new apart­ment plot” has kind of been hit hard by two unfore­seen compli­ca­tions. Unfore­seen because I had orig­i­nally thought of doing this story before Kaylin went to the West March. After the West March has compli­ca­tions that arise natu­rally from Cast in Sorrow. (I am … Continue reading

Guess what appeared in my email today? The cover(s) for Cast in Sorrow. I know many of you have already seen it on Amazon, B&N, etc., but on the off chance some of you haven’t, I’m posting it here. The full cover is actu­ally the small file, but has the back text. The larger file is front cover only. The small file is the cover flat — which includes the spine and the back. I really like it. The art is by Shane Reben­schied, who also posted the image without text earlier on his tumblr.
