Folks, I wanted to give a quick update, especially for those still following RADIANCE.
I’m one week out from a go-live on a project at the day job that is kicking my butt. If you’ve ever coordinated a project, you know the last week before a go-live is always frantic, crazed and paranoid for everyone involved in it, because you’re down to tweaking the final bits, suddenly discovering an “OMG, WTF is this?!” issue and knowing you have very little time to remedy it. In other words, those of us on this project are just a teeny bit stressed at the moment.
This, and my Christmas project with the author Elizabeth Hunter, has put a delay on RADIANCE. Considering my track record with delays on this story, I doubt that comes as any surprise. However, I did want to let y’all know I haven’t dropped Brishen and Ildiko off at the side of the road and abandoned them. I just have two other things that take priority at the moment.
That being said, my cover artist sent me an amazing example of what she’s doing with the RADIANCE cover. I know I made some weird, squeaky noise of excitement when I saw it. I think it will be AMAZING when she’s done with it, and I can’t wait to show it off.
Anyhoo, I figure with Ilona Andrews‘ BURN FOR ME out in the wild now (Yay! Can’t wait to read my copy! ~celebratory dance~), along with other new releases, you won’t be missing a chapter update too much. And a quick recommendation for an author who is now on my auto-buy list. If you get a chance, check out the free short story on Amazon (she may have it on B&N and/or Smashwords as well) called THE BONE KNIFE by Intisar Khanani. She’s also the author of THORN and SUNBOLT. I haven’t yet had the privilege of reading the last two (they’re on my tablet, seductively calling my name. I’ve resisted so far), but I loved THE BONE KNIFE. And you can’t go wrong with free.
Thanks for your patience while I wrestle the beast that is my current schedule.
