We're supposed to have our dead tree removed today. I'm hoping it will make the backyard less post-apocalyptic. Also, hurricane season started. I saw a prediction that we're due for six major ones. Maybe they'll drive off the tornadoes? No, I don't think it works like that either.

I'm still working on chapters 10-11-12 of the third Cloud Roads book, but for the first time, the first eleven chapters are all complete and read as if they are all part of the same book. That's an improvement. So cross your fingers I can keep it going. I need to finish it this year, to keep on my finishing one book a year schedule. (Note I said "finishing" not "selling" or "publishing.") I finished The Cloud Roads in 2008, finished The Serpent Sea and the YA fantasy that hasn't sold (Emilie and the Hollow World) in 2009, started three books but finished none in 2010, and finished the MG/YA fantasy that I was co-writing with a friend earlier this year, which has gone out for submission. So I need to finish the third Cloud Roads book to stay on schedule. I think. I'm bad at math.

Oh, and if I do a reading at ApolloCon this month, I'll read from The Serpent Sea, which is set in the same world with the same characters as The Cloud Roads.

Anyway, links:

Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed is now up for preorder. I'm looking forward to this one.

"Will the Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood please climb aboard?"

"As I live and breathe!" I exclaimed. “It’s John O'Neill, Robot Overlord and Master of Black Gate, come to bear us away to our badass feminist science fiction convention in Madison, Wisconsin!"
