Week 42 of 2022
This week, we released A Murder of Wolves by Jamie Ibson, the 9th book in the Eldros Legacy. It’s a howling (get it?) good adventure and you can get it here: amazon.com/dp/B0BHRKNYD5.
I’ve been working on edits for Responsibility of the Throne this week, sequel to Responsibility of the Crown by G. Scott Huggins. He’s such a strong writer and the characters are great.
I’ve also spent this week working on Farewell, My Ugly. I made huge progress, topping 30k this week. I’m aiming at 80k, so it’s over a 3rd done. I’m definitely better at hard-boiled and noir imagery than I was when I stumbled around writing A Lake Most Deep.
I also spent much of this week working on some foundational work that I’m looking forward to talking about down the road. I’m excited about more new projects. Expect to have a big update next week about the new plans.
You guys have a great week. I’m off to date night with the sweetie.
What I’m Listening To
Palästinalied Congregatio by Corvus Corax. These guys are another one of those bands who play medieval music on medieval instruments but do it with a metal crunch.
This particular song is around 800 years old. Here’s the Wikipedia link to more details: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pal%C3%A4stinalied
Quote of the Week
Sadly, this week we lost Angela Lansbury, so here’s a quote every author had said at one time or another to their computer:
“All right, we come to an understanding, or one of us doesn’t leave here alive.”
– Angela Lansbury as Jessica Fletcher.
