Because The Emperor’s Wolves comes out in October, and it’s September now, which means it’s time for the preview chapter.
So, this week instead of a short story, I’m posting the first chapter. You can find it on the book page, linked above, or here. (The book page has current audio pre-order links; I assume that the audiobook will be sold on iTunes, but the preorder for that hadn’t gone live yet.)
Because I’m Michelle, there’s a very thin divide between being excited and being anxious. This is, sadly, normal for me, as people who have had to live with me would be happy to attest, although possibly happier at a safe distance which is harder to attain during these times of minimal excursion from the house.
Cast in Conflict has gone to the editor, but has not returned for revision. The first book of The Burning Crown has been revised — again T_T — and is not finished, but I’m working on it. I was so hoping it would come in at 200k words, but… that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. My intention was to write from a certain viewpoint, and stick to the events. This pretty much blew up in my face – which will probably surprise no one who reads the West novels.
Do you actually know anyone who isn’t simultaneously excited and anxious before a new work of appears? I don’t! You belong to a distinguished “club”! Re. the West novels, I seem to enjoy what results from your “explosions”, so kudos. LOL!?!?!
