So, y'know, no problem. But I haven't read that book since September, and doing an AFS needs--well, I've got some ideas for the cover, but I'd like to see if there are specific images in the book to use, and just to get a feel again for the whole story thematically and all of that. (And with any luck I will enthuse myself about writing the third book in the series, in the process. :))
So today's going to be a day for doing work-that's-not-writing. My other editor emailed yesterday and said what did I think about having a map for THE QUEEN'S BASTARD (I thought it was a great idea, as I'd been thinking of it myself and forgot to mention it), so I have to scare up a map of appropriate era and re-draw it. Need to check Ted's map books. He may very well have a European map from the 1580s in there. I also need to create a cast of characters list, though I've got that mostly done already because *I* needed one to keep my characters straight at first. And then since I had it already I mostly kept it up. :)
Anyway, so this morning I'm making bread, doing laundry, reading HOUSE OF CARDS, and looking for maps. This afternoon I'll be doing the AFS. And later this afternoon I think I need to round up some people and do some brainstorming on the individual quests for ANGLES, 'cause I'm in a rut on them now and need to be shaken loose.
If I'm feeling *especially* killer, I might try writing a synopsis for TRUTHSEEKER. It's what, Wednesday? I'm sure arcaedia has nothing better to do this weekend than read Yet Another Book Proposal from me... (my poor agent. :))
This job does not suck. :)
