I answered this question on Tumblr:

tavianas asked: When are you going to tell Madeline's story? between DotN and wizard hunters? Then we have not been told the story about Thomas Boniface his new bride and his children surely a daughter ....

For me, those books were written fifteen to twenty years ago, and while I’d still kind of like to write those stories, in the meantime I’ve found a lot of other stories I’m excited to write about too. So I don’t know if I’ll ever have a chance to get back to them.

But I also think this is exactly what fanfiction is for. One book can generate little plot threads for hundreds of stories. I could never write all of them. So fanfic is a great way for readers who get really interested in some particular plot thread to play with it and write their version of what they think might have happened.

* People had also been asking about future Raksura books and the situation with the publisher Night Shade: I answered that here

* Free book: Part One of The Death of the Necromancer is now online at Black Gate Magazine. The next four chapters will be posted this Sunday.

* This is the final day to donate to the Red Cross and enter to win autographed books at Literati Literature Lovers Blog I've contributed a slew of books, including the Raksura books, Emilie and the Hollow World and Wheel of the Infinite.

* The kickstarter for A Knight in the Silk Purse anthology, the sequel to the Tales of the Emerald Serpent anthology, is going on this month. This is a shared world anthology, and I'll have another Jelith and Kryranen story in it.


Here's my appearances for the next few months:

* August 29-September 2, 2013. LoneStarCon 3, the World Science Fiction Convention, in San Antonio, Texas.
