I went back to aerobics class today after taking last week off, and yes, I could really tell I'd taken a week off. Augh.

Site I just stumbled on: Children's Book Illustrators and Illustrations. Check out the gallery for oodles of gorgeous art. I hadn't seen those Kay Nielsen illustrations for East of the Sun, West of the Moon before.

That's weird; I've seen a lot of those Nielsen illustrations (I have a copy of his East of the Sun, West of the Moon), but not all of them.

Beautiful site. Thankee!

Yeah, she's got a lot of stuff on there I'd never seen before.

Totally off topic. I was having dinner with my sister's family the other day and was surprised to see a copy of The Ships of Air on a table. When I asked about it, they told me my thirteen year old nephew was reading it.

Oh cool! Thanks for letting me know.

continuing this tangent, I'd really like another Tremaine book. Or three. Would it help if I sent gifts? Kitty toys?

There has to be a few crazy wizards around that they could go take care of. Some trouble they can get into? Some sarcastic remarks to make?

Is there any hope?

Well, unfortunately, there isn't much hope. The Fall of Ile-Rien trilogy didn't sell well enough for the publisher to want to do another book. The Gate of Gods didn't even show up in that many bookstores, so it didn't have much of a chance to get new readers. A while back, I did offer the publisher another book in the series, and they turned it down. I have published some Giliead and Ilias short stories in Black Gate magazine, but I'm afraid that's about it for the series.

I've since written another fantasy, which is making the rounds trying to find a publisher right now.

But I'm glad you liked Tremaine! She's one of my favorite characters.

I don't like business people deciding what books, tv shows and movies I get to see! Esp. since they always seem to be taking away the things I like! And then trying to give me something horrible and telling me I'll like it.

Why do we need a publisher? Couldn't we get together everyone who wants another Tremaine book and pay you directly? We could get together an advance based on people already interested, then when it is available new people could pay a small fee to login and read online too. You could copyright yourself and own it.

Otherwise, I'm going to have to become a book publisher.

It's a neat idea, but I don't think it would work. :) Thanks for thinking of it, though.

Well, it would definitely take more thought. But you do have a lot of online fans.

Thanks for this site. Lots of H.J. Ford there, and Lancelot Speed, whose illustrations are throughout my favoritest books—the Andrew Lang Fairy Books.

I was lucky to stumble on it, there's some fantastic stuff up there.
