Recent Reads: STONEMASTER  

Okay, this one’s kind of a cheat, I admit it. STONEMASTER is the (working title for the) second book I’ve written for my nephew, out of a planned quadrology, and about 25 people in the world have read the first one. That’s about the number that will read the second one, too, until I acquire an agent and a book deal, but the reason for reading it was to prepare myself for writing the third book in the series.

These are (from an admittedly biased point of view) pretty rollicking good adventures, I think, and they’re great fun to write. Or they’re great fun when I’m doing it right, anyway (it’s a 65K book. I wrote 80K of Wrong Book before getting it right), and just crash along at top speed from one adventure to another. It’ll be keen to get them out into the world sometime.

So I have a foolish and desperate hope of writing book 3 by the end of June. Yeah. Right. While moving. But, well, I’m going to try a Nanowrimo in June anyway, because I’ve done extremely little writing this year and my sense of self worth is through the floor.

So if anybody wants to do a June WriMo with me, that would be awesome. I said hopefully. :)

I should not, what with promised Kickstarter art and needing to get my serial spinning back up and the baby and the extended family in town and the garage that is being build and the housebuilding tasks and the unexpected (but juicy-paying) programming jobs I have lined up out the door...

But then I think, I could do this WITH the serial.

And then I think: NO ELLEN, BAD ELLEN, NO COOKIE, because I'm trying no to be quite so crazy.

Short answer: not sure. Crazy parts may win.
