The City and the Dungeon is now under review by the copy editor. We’re not sure how long this will take, but I suspect I’ll have more news by the end of August. I hope.
I will, God willing have a short story set in the world of C&D out by the end of the month. This short story will BE FREE!!!11!! (To serve as a kind of teaser, if you will.)
The World of Wishes, unfortunately, threw a literary shoe and had to be put down. :*( Meanwhile, I have started work on a novel tentatively called Argent while still working on tSSoL. MYSTERIES ABOUND.
Meanwhile, the second edition of Prince Anak the Immortal is out. Sorta. It seems that releasing a second edition has baffled Amazon, to the point where it offers my book three times. I’ll be waiting a few weeks to see if it resolves itself, then pestering one or more e-commerce giants to see if I can fix things.
Prince Anak the Immortal was somewhat rushed to press, and a few issues snuck in, as well as one line at which I always wince. (It’s the “kilowatt hours per hour” one, for reference.) If anyone has spotted any typos, speak now, or indefinitely hold your peace.
“Hey, wait! What about C&D?” The final draft is almost finished, but before I launch it into prime time, I want to have other ducks in order, first. Like this one.
Yes, yes. The third and final draft is just about ready for proofreading, but then a MASSIVE POSITIVE NON-WRITING LIFE TWIST occurred. The downside of which is that C&D will be, yes, delayed again.
As soon as things stabilize it’s time to get back on track. I’m also working on another book, tentatively called The World of Wishes. I’m also returning to the Refugeverse with another book, The Shackled Servant of Lauriel.
To tide y’all over, here is a brand-new website.
See the title.
Currently, my writer’s group is reviewing the manuscript, and after that, it’s on to proofreading. After that (May, God willing), we’ll see about publication.
This month, I got to about 3/4ths of the way through the second draft of _C&D_. The bad news: due to two different Real Life™ happenings, it’s not finished. Next month!
I found a more traditional venue that might accept C&D. I hope to submit before the end of March, or at least before the end of April. Either case, there’s unfortunately more of a delay, but it shouldn’t be long. It’s happening!
Aside from steeming away at steemit, I’ve been still working on revising C&D. As well as working through emotional crises. That tends to slow things down.
Black humor aside, it looks to be released in March now, or, at worst, April. There’s more to revise than I initially thought, in addition to the various formatting, proofs, etc. along the way. Don’t worry, though, I’m far from unhopeful I’ll get it out.
