Finishing things, and also an award longlist.

I have finished the draft of “No Place to Dream, but a Place to Die.” It needs the thematic and character arc shored up a bunch on the revision, but the plot is there, and that’s all I care about right now. More to follow.

But first, I have my edit letter for Karen Memory, and starting tomorrow that needs to be happening. Wow, it’s such a damned nice feeling to get things off my desk.

Often, working on a novel feels like spinning your wheels for months and months and months–because there’s work, endless work, and it’s all on the same thing, and it never feels like you will get to get your brain back and do something new. But the end is in sight, here.

And not to bury the lede, but! Shattered Pillars is longlisted for the David Gemmell Legend Award! (So is a book by that boy I like, ahem.) And EVERYBODY ON THE INTERNET CAN VOTE ONCE.

    It is distinctly possible that I already voted for the David Gemmell Legend award. It is distinctly possible that I noticed your book was on the list, and given my enthusiasm for your series, made that my choice :)

    Congrats on all counts. Onward and upward. And something to delight:
