I have been writing. And revising. I am almost finished Cast in Oblivion in first draft. Almost. I am half-way through the revisions necessary to make Firstborn a book–although that’s a best guess, because it’s not as exact a metric.
Doing my taxes did not, demonstrably, kill me. I have not heard back about the Severn books, beyond yes we do want them. So: unless something changes in the future, they will happen. The minute I have certain news, I will share it.
I used to think that “still writing” was … not very much of an update. I felt a bit self-conscious about posting “still writing” news–I assumed that people would assume that I was still writing, and there was therefore nothing of substance to report to them.
But: some news.
At the end of January, Cast in Shadow and Cast in Courtlight were reprinted in trade paperback, with slightly modified covers (the biggest change was the first book’s cover).
At the end of April — yes, the one just past — the rest of the Cast novels that were not under the Mira banner were also reprinted: Cast in Secret, Cast in Fury, Cast in Silence, Cast in Chaos, Cast in Ruin, Cast in Peril, Cast in Sorrow and Cast in Flame. I’ve updated the book pages to reflect the change, and the links to the stores that still exist (ahem, Michelle) now all go to the currently in-print versions of the books.
Some of them, like Cast in Ruin have been unavailable in print for a while. So if print is important to you, they’re available now. I should have been more organized, and should have mentioned this at the time, but: taxes. Weddings. Car mishaps (which have not been fully resolved). Writing. Loss of hair due to hair-pulling at inopportune moments. The usual =/.
Last, but not least: I am going to be doing an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit on June the 7th. People can ask questions throughout the day, once the AMA thread is up, and I will answer them. It’s not a real-time chat.
To ask a question, I think you need to have a Reddit account. I know that to answer them, I do :).
