As may be obvious by the lack of updating I am on hiatus and will remain on hiatus until January. I’m working on deadline and am OFF-LINE except to check email.
Feel free to email me or leave a comment on this site (here or on another post) if you have something to say! I am genuinely happy to hear from readers, seriously. At the moment I need to stay away from the timesink of on-line however in order to get two major projects completed.
Blogging should resume in January 2014 with answers to the wonderful questions I was asked back in the Cold Steel Giveaway of May 2013.
Meanwhile, in other news, COLD STEEL is a finalist for the RT Award for Best Fantasy Novel of 2013 (together with novels by Paul Cornell, Mary Robinette Kowal, Stella Gemmell, and E.C. Blake). The contenders answer two questions here on their favorite fantasy novel of 2013 and how they think the field is changing.
As always, thank you for reading.
Hope the writing and editing process is going well; looking forward to whatever you are writing (especially if it is part of the Crossroads series?!). There are a few books I’m looking forward to in 2014, all of which seem to be by men – Abrahams, Weeks, Deas and Tchaikovsky – as you, Hobb, Jemisin and Juliet Mckenna have recently completed series, but I’m finding that a lot of new fantasy just doesn’t appeal to me anymore. Perhaps I’ve got more discerning about the lack of decent female characters or tokenism, particularly when the plot seems very ‘samey’ or ‘tropey’.
If I can get this draft done and turned in I will have a late 2014 publication date of a book that will indeed interest you . . . 😉
How slinking back offline…
