not a productive day  

I’m feeling better, but today’s productivity was limited to re-reading the last 75 or 100 pages I’ve written, as apparently three days off with a head cold threw me further out of the story than I might’ve hoped. On the positive side, either the book hangs together so far or I’m too close to it to see what an utter and miserable failure it is, so I’ll take what I get. I’m not really quite well yet, and I think it’s still affecting my brain. :p

Email from my edit…damn. I just remembered, as I’ve remembered several times today, that I told my other editor I’d get copy edit questions answered by this afternoon her time. Which means I’ve still got like five hours in which to do stuff, but see above note about brain affectations…

Anyway. Email from my editor at Del Rey indicates I ought to be getting copies of THE QUEEN’S BASTARD pretty soon here. TQB is my tenth (including the novella, which I do) published novel. I feel like I should do something celebratory! But I don’t know what. I’d like to run a good contest, and…I donno! Ideas?

I think you should consider a trip to Seattle, do a signing at University Book Store and have dinner with the local writers.

Of course, that's what Jim Butcher did, so you may not want to do the exact same thing.

But if you do, I'll be there.

Hey it takes time to recover from being ill (See, I'm an expert on this :-) )

Congrats on the 10th publication.

For the record, I continue to be in awe of your awesomeness, and I look very much forward to owning a copy of your tenth book! ^_^

Glad you are feeling better. Don't overdo it - in spite of editors and deadlines.

Want your keys back? Drop in some evening or else give us a call and we can drop them up at the weekend.
