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 (press​able​.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
