*laugh* ah, the writer’s life  

I’ve been getting happy comments from people who’ve received and read WALKING DEAD and are ready for the next one.

*laughs* No fair. I can’t keep up. :) Actually, of course, I’m way ahead of them, starting the 6th book right now, but it takes *so little* time to read a book and so long to write one, even if you write fast! Mind you, vis-a-vis wanting the last Codex Alera book RIGHT NOW, I’m just like my readers when *I’m* reading, but still!

On the other hand, I also got a comment from somebody who’d just found my books a few weeks ago, and was sad she hadn’t found me before but was glad I had a backlist of things she could catch up on, so somehow that balances it all out. It’s a funny old life. :)

Well, you could buy them in trade. :)

*sniff* I have placed a book ban on myself buying trades & hardbacks. I am skint!

And I like mass market paperbacks. They are small and handy and fit in my bag. :)

It's true, they're very handy. You'll be glad to know my new duology-unless-it-becomes-a-trilogy from Del Rey coming out next fall will be released in mass market. :)

Yay! That's good news. I will finally be able to buy your stuff as soon as it's released. Rather than either waiting for the mass market, or borrowing from someone else until the mass market comes out. ;)

Hmm... While we're chatting, what about the Pretender's Crown? Is that even the right title? God, I've had a crappy day and don't have the energy to open another tab in Firefox... Heh.

There are no plans that I'm aware of to put THE QUEEN'S BASTARD or THE PRETENDER'S CROWN out in mass market. I'm sorry you've had a bad day! *hugs*!

Oh dammit, how could I have forgotten the great title for Book 1?! :)

Aww, thanks. *clings to Catie in a disturbing stalkerish fashion*

I'm okay. Just Day Job stuff, and waiting - always waiting - on Publishing News from the Publishing Gods who are On Holiday at the Wrong Time. ;)

*looks offended* I've no idea how you could forget that awesome title. *laughs*

*LAUGHS* Publishing gods are *always* on holiday at the wrong time!
