Touch is coming out this month, and I haven’t posted the sample chapter yet.
In fact, I don’t think I’ve posted the cover. I was kind of caught up in writing with nose-to-grindstone (which should produce sharp noses, but, well, mine still only barely holds my glasses up).
So: I have a cover image to show you. The artist is Cliff Nielsen, who was responsible for the cover of Silence.
And I also have the prologue and the first chapter. (I read the prologue at Worldcon; it was considered depressing. Which, yes, it sort of is. It’s Nathan. Chapter one, however, is less so. So have both.)
In a couple of months after Touch is published, I’ll have a spoiler heavy post about process and the writing of this book, and why it took me so long. The short form is: Michelle was stupid.
ETA: A glitch between the blogging software I use and WordPress caused problems for the WordPress install. In an attempt to fix this, the post that was here was deleted. If you get mail notification of this twice, I’m sorry >.<.
You are never stupid. And thank you so very, very much for the preview! Really looking forward to this book and really looking forward to giving it to my mom to read since this is the only book of yours that is apparently not ‘too complicated’ for her to enjoy.
Happy New Year again.
