state of the desk – quick run through
October 13, 2014
Books in the Basin was a hit, I believe. Next up, in two weeks: MileHi Con, which sometimes feels like it doesn’t really count as travel because it’s the local “hometown” convention. But it’ll be the last big gig of the year — promotion for Low Midnight starts in January. Until then, I’ll be able to kick back for a little while.
Hey, have I mentioned recently that Low Midnight is out on December 30? Just in time to use the gift cards you get for Christmas!
A couple of other things are due out before the end of the year: I’ll have a Wild Cards story up on Tor.com in a week, and the next book, Lowball, will be out in November. Oh, and the re-release of Wild Cards 4: Aces Abroad will be out in January, it looks like — I have a story out in that one, too. An embarrassment of riches!
A couple of other short stories should be making their way to the world soon. More news when I have it.
I may also have a couple of surprises. We’ll see if I can make it happen. (This has been a busy year, but I’ve spent much of it in a holding pattern, waiting for news, waiting for delayed releases to happen. But progress is happening. Excelsior!)
In the meantime, I’m working on a third Golden Age book. It passed 50,000 words last week. Now is the part of the writing when I’m trying to tie all the threads back together. Fingers crossed that I can make it happen.
