As Elizabeth G reminded me in my last State of the Author post, it is in fact January, which is the month before February, which is the publication month for Sword and Shadow. While I knew on some level it was January, the lead in to February, I … somehow failed to make the connection >.<.
I therefore have a first chapter and an updated home page. The first chapter can be found here (although all preview chapters are also linked to their individual book/bibliography pages, for future reference).
And now I will crawl back under my rock, taking my laptop with me because deadlines are tighter than I thought they were by about a month, which is still doable, but. I swear my brain has become jello during the covid years >.<
