Looking forward with great anticipation to another great FenCon weekend. I always love the con, and this year the Guest of Honor is Jim C. Hines, who I truly enjoy talking to–even if he is kicking my butt at Words With Friends.
But most importantly–what has got me biting my nails, and checking the front porch obsessively–is that The Nearly Notorious Nun will make its print debut. Good Lord willing and the books arrive as promised by Wednesday. I’ve seen a print proof, and it looks gorgeous. I hope I didn’t miss any typos or kitten additions (he tried desperately to add words–or at least characters–to the file several times.) If you find a problem in a print edition, let me know. 😉
AND I got word that Gears, Ghosts, and Grimoires, with the Conn-Mann story “Restless Spirit” officially launches on October 27th. More on that later.
PLUS, the eSpec Books flash anthology that has “Chance Encounter” will also be out soon.
It’s been a busy year for Jo and Alistair, and it isn’t over yet. I am currently considering the end of The Incredibly Irritating Irishman, and if I will leave it as is with them starting off to Ireland aboard a ship…change it to be heading off on an airship, because that would be quicker, and I’ve established that mode of travel is available…or scrap Ireland for the moment and do another book before The Atrocious Automaton Army, because I really want to feature this in a story, as it sounds like something Jo would definitely take notice of–but it might do better as a short. There wouldn’t be time to get to Ireland and back by November in a ship…but by air? I’d love to hear some opinions as to what you want to see happen!
My intrepid editor tells me it is time to quit for the night:
