I continue to be grateful for the many intelligent & attractive people who have taken copies of Burnt Worlds home to live with them. Some of them have even said nice things about it in public, which is wonderful. Thank you again!
My next book is continuing apace. I'm at the very serious stage where I've printed out the first draft and have been savagely going at it with a red pen. Some pages are soaked with red like a crime scene. There is revising and rewriting to be done, but it's going very well and I'm happy with it. I'm especially enjoying getting to know the characters. Some of them are fun people and I'm looking forward to introducing them to all of you.
For the longest time, it was known as Something something magic something, because a title hadn't occurred to me yet and Word insisted that I give the file a name. But now I've given it the working title Magic Comes to Whiteport, mainly because that's what happens in it.
As for me, the book currently on my night-table is Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch. It's the third in the 'Gentlemen Bastards' series, and I'm happily cruising through it.
I just read that Sir Terry Pratchett has passed away today. Good grief. This world needs all the fun and absurdity it can get; he will be greatly missed.
