Week 13 of 2022
I’m in the Research Triangle in Raleigh/Durham NC right now for FantaSci. So excited to see people. It’ll be a busy weekend, and tomorrow I’ll do a post about where all I’ll be.
I have to apologize. You all know that Keen Edge of Valor comes out tomorrow, and I have a bunch more interviews to post from the authors, but I simply didn’t have time this week.
It was a huge week for me.
On Saturday, I sent off my edits to A Sundered Throne by Philippa Werner. This is the first book in a new series, and if you’re a fan of Guy Gavriel Kay’s Sarantium series, you’re gonna love this one. I’m really excited to get to be a part of it.
However, I’ve completely buried the lede.
What? FantaSci isn’t the lede? Getting another step closer to a new series from a great author isn’t the lede? Keen Edge of Valor coming out tomorrow isn’t the lede?
Nope. The lede is that I typed “The End” on Tuesday for A Door Into Winter. It still has a goodly amount of editing to go, but it is no longer vaporware.
And I love it.
What I’m Listening To
The sound of the air conditioning unit in my hotel room. Wooooo!! Such a party animal I am.
Quote of the Week
Today is the birthday of Tokugawa Ieyasu, founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate. This is a quote that is actually important for writers, if one considers that “victory” can be in part described by typing “The End.” That is only one part of the path, after all.
“After victory, tighten the cords of your helmet.”
– Tokugawa Ieyasu
