Jim C. Hines has posted the first part of his author income survey results. He’s clear about the limitations of it, but it’s still good data for the curious (and it meshes more or less with my personal, very small sample set of fellow writers about whom I have any income insight).
On my own blog, I posted a view from the other side: Are You Sure? (Y/N)
As I mumbled on Facebook: I’ve seen cover drafts for BREACH OF CONTAINMENT and good heavens the cover is outstanding and I am all jump-up-and-down-y wanting to share it with y’all, which I will do the very instant I get the OK. (It’s up for preorder, too–links on the books page.)
Lastly, I’m in the process of convincing Goodreads that yes, I am indeed the author of those books. When that happens, I’m going to try to set up a giveaway or two. Stay tuned.
A non-writing post, in which I do my civic duty and attend a protest.
On The Portalist, I blogged about milSF and what I thought it was about–or, more accurately, can be about.
Not that I don’t enjoy writing all of them, but I enjoyed this one a LOT. Writing it made me realize just how personal my choice of venue is when I write.
Have a look, if you like. 🙂
I wrote a bit on TNG for the B&N SFF blog, and yeah, it was really hard to pare my thoughts down into a short post. But it’s always fun to noodle about Trek. 🙂
!!REMNANTS OF TRUST is out today!!
I’m pretty happy with this one. It’s a different story than THE COLD BETWEEN, although to me it follows logically. It says what I want it to say, and you can interpret that however you like.
Some promo stuff!
On my own blog, I write about how I came to write this story.
On Mary Robinette Kowal’s blog, I write about Guanyin, my great big pregnant starship captain.
And, for giggles, I’ve added another Spotify playlist.
There will probably be more promo stuff over the next week or so. I’ll post links here. For those wanting something more direct, here’s an excerpt, and links to where to buy it. Share and Enjoy.
And just because I can, here, once again, is my breathtaking cover, courtesy the phenomenal Chris McGrath:
I’ve published a blog post I actually wrote a while ago, for no other reason than I felt like being clear about it. There are spoilers there for THE COLD BETWEEN, but I suspect anyone interested enough to read the blog post has already been exposed to those spoilers.
Less than a week before REMNANTS! Eek.
HarperVoyagerUS just posted the prologue on Facebook!
Two weeks from tomorrow…
There are things about this business that I will never, ever get tired of. 🙂
I’m going to be at New York Comic Con next Thursday, October 6th, doing a panel on worldbuilding (with a signing after). Come by and say hello!
(I’ve also blogged again, rather randomly, for those who enjoy such things. 🙂 )
