2008 in a nutshell  
This is all suricattus's fault.

The approximate shape of 2008:

To write, like, already contracted:
THE PRETENDER'S CROWN (Inheritors' Cycle, Book 2, due Feb 1 (agh))
CAULDRON BORNE (Walker Papers #4, due June 1)

To write, not already contracted:

To revise:

To write if the stars align:

To propose:
THE IMPERATOR'S HEIR (Inheritors' Cycle, Book 3)
Project Of Sufficient Coolness & Yet Obviousness That Mentioning Its Name Would Give Somebody Else Perhaps In A Better Position To Pursue It The Right Idea (henceforth known as PoSC)

To attend:
P-Con (Dublin, March 29-30, GoH)
San Diego Comic Con (Jul 24-27)
RWA National (San Francisco, July 30-Aug 2)*
WorldCon (Denver, August 6-10)*
MeCon (Belfast, August 29-31)
Colorado Gold (Denver, Sept 12-14?)
World Fantasy (Calgary, Oct 30-Nov 2)*

To admire on the shelves:

...actually, that really *doesn't* look that bad.

*Ideally, anyway.
Current Mood: optimisticoptimistic
Current Music: the "grand designs" theme music

See? Yours is WAY more packed than mine with contracted-for stuff. Right now, anyway. I plan to catch up. :-)

(although I've got all that pesky short fiction you've managed to avoid, true...)

I only have two contracted books in 2008! You've got like nine hundred and eighty must-writes! I have mostly ideal-writes! Oi! :)

Yay, Kit books!

I may be at WorldCon!

I am full of punch today!

More exclamation marks!

For you!

My hubby saw me reading Heart of Stone and got excited because he thought it was the 4th Walker Papers....so by due do you mean due in stores?
kit: jomizkit on December 13th, 2007 10:18 pm (UTC)
No, due to the publisher. It won't be out until 2009, I'm afraid. :)

BTW, I am being told I'd do better at RWA than WorldCon next year, since the timing is sort of, um, difficult to do both. What do you think? (feel free to take this to e-mail)

We can hang and have dinner!

Busy Kit! But if Pretender's Crown were due February 2nd you should be able to see if it casts a shadow and if so, six more weeks of rewrite!

I'll be at the Denver Worldcon; hope to see you there!

I so cannot wait for HOuse of Cards. BTW, I sent Heart of Stone to my friend (we do a book exchange) and this is what she had to say about it:

"Speaking of which, I finished it today, and oh my GOD I want to have its BABIES. Have you got the next one? xDDD *addicted* "

She and I pretty much have the same opinion on it. :-)

Ooh! Children of the Heart of Stone! Spinoff!

Bitchin', if you come to Worldcon in Denver, you'll probably get to see me! ^_^
kitmizkit on December 14th, 2007 10:48 am (UTC)
Sadly, Worldcon is the least likely of the 3 for me to attend, but hopefully! :)
annathepiper on December 15th, 2007 03:44 am (UTC)
I'll keep my fingers crossed! ^_^

The most common complaint readers have is that writers don't write the books as fast as they can read them. You are, it seems, attempting to redress the balance...
kitmizkit on December 14th, 2007 10:48 am (UTC)
Oddly enough, people still seem to feel I'm not writing fast enough... :)

I was pleased to see yesterday, while I was buying Xmas presents for myself at Borders, not one, not two, but THREE Kit novels on the shelves -- two copies of US, one copy of CD, and four copies of HoS. I had to restrain myself from doing a silly happy dance, as there was a very serious and focused man standing right next to me who looked like he was having a rough day...

awesome series
I'm just finishing up Coyote Dreams and I was afraid that you weren't going to write another book in the Walker Papers series. So many people are sticking with trilogies these days, I was working on getting disappointed before I even reach the last page. I'm so relieved to hear that there's another one coming out in June! The characters are fabulous and believable and the stories are completely compelling. I have the worst time putting them down when I have to go to bed and spend most of the morning at work half-regretting my determination to read "one more chapter." Then I pick the book up again at lunch and hate that I have such a short time to read before going back to work again. Work so often gets in the way of my reading schedule...;)

The books are funny, touching, thrilling and engrossing. Please keep writing and feeding my new addiction and I'll keep reading everything you release into the world. You rock hard-core! Thank you so much for creating this series. You get gold stars all around.

-a new fan, Karissa:)

Re: awesome series
Nah, the Walker Papers were never going to be a trilogy. There are 9 books planned for the series, so let's hope we go all the way. :)

Glad you enjoyed them so much! Lucky for you, there are a bunch more books coming out the next couple years, so hopefully that'll help keep you sated. :)

And hello! :)
