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

The Australian branch of Harlequin/Mira has confirmed that as of now, the book has been cleared for publi­ca­tion. It will take the usual time to prop­a­gate from upload to consumer ready — 24 – 48 hours — and then it will be avail­able. We’re working to make sure this doesn’t happen again in future, not only because it’s frus­trating for you, but also because I (me, Michelle) feel enor­mously guilty doing book birthday posts when — yes — the book is not avail­able to everyone who can read the post.

It’s pub day for Cast in Oblivion. Print books are in stores in North America – and prob­ably in specialty SF/F stores in the UK and Australia. The audio­books appear to be avail­able every­where. The ebooks appear to be avail­able every­where but Australia/NZ. Anything that can be done from here is being done — I’m really, really sorry because I honestly love my Australian fans T_T. To cele­brate this, I have commis­sioned a map. If you look at the menu bar, there’s a new tab, MAPS, and the drop down has the map for the City of Elantra, done by Mati Demers. (Where by cele­brate, I mean that I real­ized I actu­ally needed a bit of a visual guide after all this time, because I am terrible at mapping, and at reading maps. I am one … Continue reading

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
