I have mentioned elsewhere that I’m more than a bit behind, and I’ve been working steadily in the hopes of digging myself out.
I love writing. I love being able to write for a living. But writing is an inherently creative process; it’s an art. Being able to write for a living necessitates the melding of the creative art with professional necessities, and sometimes, they don’t co-exist in an entirely optimal way. I am a big, big believer in the butt-in-chair school of writing, but I’m also aware that sometimes the fifty thousand words I’ve just written do not work. I try not to consider them lost time — but the truth is, they are. When I reach a point where the words do not work for me, I have no sunk cost fallacies; the words don’t work. I throw them out and I start again. But that’s two months or more of writing time that will never see the light of day.
So I have been mostly off-line, and will probably be keeping my head down for the rest of this month.
But: I have one link that I’d like to share, to an interview I did with Liz Bourke, which went live on tor.com on the 2nd of October. It’s a little on the long side, which will probably surprise no one. It’s here.
I also have news. Both in comments here and on Facebook, people have let me know that Cast in Peril is now available at audible.com. I’ll update the link on the book’s page later, but for now it’s here.
This means the entire Cast series is available.
Audible also bought the rights for the House War series and Silence, plus its two sequels. I don’t have release dates for any of these yet, but I’ve seen, signed, and returned the contracts. I’m really happy about both of these things.
And now, I am going back to my cave >.>
