Okay, because there might be ONE person left in the universe who doesn’t know this, Larry Correia and I are going to collaborate on MHI Guardian, to be delivered next year. (Yes, yes, we’ll tell you when you can start your demands for e-arcs.)
That’s my big news for the decade. The rest of it is small stuff. I’m putting finishing touches on Witch’s Daughter to send to editing. I’ve been trying to do this at the same time as writing Darkship Revenge, but the voices are too different, so I’ll try to get done with WD this weekend, so I can start on Revenge in earnest and on its own next week.
Other books that need editing include the two episodic novels, which I hope to resume in a couple of weeks. After WD comes Dragons. Yes, Bowl of Red will have to wait till the end of that.
As soon as I stop putting in and taking out big chunks, I’ll put WD in the subscriber area, and dragons I intend to write IN the subscriber area so you get to see the very rough draft. Revenge is of course pre-contracted to Baen.
Yes, uncle Lar, if you wish to be beta on the fantasy too, I shall kick Witch’s Daughter your way. The rest of my betas know who you are.
Meanwhile I’m the world’s worst friend. The Free Range Oyster sacrificed his Sabbath-day to make the list of Hun promotion, and I got a wild hare and didn’t post it. I’m posting it below with most contrite apologies.
And now I’m going to change 1/4 #derpfish’s water, get caffeine and produce that fiction stuff I actually get paid for.
