I finished Grave, as I think I might have mentioned. I have not finished the submission revisions, which I thought would take two weeks, max. Unfortunately, other deadlines, one stomach ‘flu, and the holiday season – I thought it was still, somehow, November on December the 10th, which tells you everything to need to know about my realistic relationship to the Real World (TM) at the current moment – have conspired against that. I’m about half-way through the revision. I’ve been changing every second sentence, which is not actually as helpful as it sounds.
I have also been working on both War and Cast in Flight, and I am having so much fun with both of them, because it has been so long since I’ve been able to work on a book that doesn’t fight me every sentence of the way toward the end.
Back in May, I said I would post the excerpt from Oracle, which was entirely Sigurne. As you can see, it’s not exactly May. Or any of the months that follow May (until December). Did I mention I finished Grave? And that it was the fourth start-from-page-one iteration? Yes, I’m whining. Moving right along…
I had thought about maybe taking the core of this excerpt and turning it into a novella and self-publishing it. But. Well.
It’s the holiday season, and I have been a not-very-communicative author at all in the past way too many months, and so:
Sigurne. (<– This is a link to a .pdf).
