I know that Firstborn hasn’t yet been released — less than a week to go! — but I really had to share this. I love this cover. I love the art. Jody Lee did this before the cover for Firstborn, because she had the whole messy book from which to work. And when we decided to split the book, she had to come up with a cover for Firstborn because this cover would not work for Firstborn; it’s the end of book/series cover. I love it, did I mention? ETA: WAR is, according to the internet, coming on 18 June, 2019. In miscellaneous things I don’t love: the dentist. I mean, my dentist is a lovely man, and I’ve been going to his office since I was six — but today, I will be going … Continue reading

My server-host has taken a job at WordPress. Which means he can’t maintain or work on private servers. Which means my web-site has been migrated to a different server (pressable.com, for those who are curious). Pressable handles WordPress installs. It doesn’t handle forum software that isn’t a WordPress plugin. Through no fault of anyone’s but me, I don’t think the forums actually worked; I thought I would be able to spend more time (like, say, old Livejournal time) in the forums, but in the end I couldn’t. Which means the forums are now gone. In future, I will go back to the older model: I’ll make a post about each novel sometime after the publication day, which will be heavily SPOILER marked, for people who want to talk about … Continue reading
It’s 2019. I hope the close of 2018 was peaceful and warm. For my part, it was. I also make no New Year’s Resolutions this year for a change of pace. This is different from making resolutions which are … not so resolute by about April >.>. I actually took time off for the holidays, where “time off” = looking for appliances to replace our failing appliances. And hectic Christmas shopping. But we had a lovely Christmas, and both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s day, so I am not complaining. Much. If the dishwasher had ears, on the other hand… I am, of course, still writing — but copy-edits ate much of December, and I was sick in bed for 3 days (which I don’t recommend when one has … Continue reading
Here it is: the cover for Firstborn. Art by Jody Lee. I don’t have the cover flat, so I don’t have the text/blurb yet; I think the amazon text is actually catalogue copy (the thing that gets shown to booksellers). It’s Carver! Okay, now I’m going back to copy-edits T_T.
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
