THE QUEEN'S BASTARD is now Officially The Longest Book I Have Ever Written. I just crossed the threshold of 511 pages, and the HEART OF STONE manuscript, previously the longest book I'd ever written, was 510 pages. Given that that was a final draft after about 234098707 revisions, and this is a rough draft, the truth is that TQB has been the biggest book I've ever written for about forty pages now, ever since I passed the length of the HOUSE OF CARDS rough draft at 470ish pages. But this makes it Official.

Back to work now. I just thought that was worth stopping to mention. :)

Have you tried writing really, really small?

Oh, speaking of your books, I just finished The Cardinal Rule (and with Leesh part way up a Pyreneean cliff to my immediate left, I suppose I'm already into The Firebird Deception). Nicely done - not the genre(s) I normally read, but pretty good.

And while I'm about it, nice icon, too.

*laugh* Writing really, really small hadn't occured to me! Maybe I'll try that! *switches font size to 8*

Glad you're enjoying the books. Heck, they're not the genre I usually read, either, but they were fun to write. :)

And thanks! I think that's a funny icon. :)
