Year End Wrap-Up and Questions

I sent off the revised version of Emilie and the Sky World yesterday, and started on the fourth Raksura novella. This one is going to be a story about Moon's travels before he met Stone and joined the Indigo Cloud colony.

I thought I'd do the round-up of everything I had come out in the past year now, since it's unlikely anything else will be coming out before January 1. (And it's nice to have an actual list, after all the years when there was basically nothing.):

* December 2012 The Siren Depths Book Three of the Books of the Raksura, Night Shade Books.

* February 2013 The Siren Depths AudioBook, Audible.com. narrated by Christopher Kipiniak.

* April 2013 Emilie and the Hollow World, Strange Chemistry Books.

* April 2013 "Mimesis" in the anthology The Other Half of the Sky, Candlemark and Gleam Press. (This was a Raksura story, featuring Jade.)

* September 2013 Star Wars: Empire and Rebellion: Razor's Edge, Random House/Lucas Books.

* September 2013 The Element of Fire Audiobook, Tantor Audio, narrated by Derek Perkins.

* September 2013 The Death of the Necromancer Audiobook, Tantor Audio, narrated by Derek Perkins.

* September 2013 "Thorns" Audio version Podcastle, narrated by C.S.E. Cooney.

* October 2013 The Wizard Hunters Audiobook, Tantor Audio, narrated by Talmadge Ragan.

* November 2013 "Holy Places," reprinted in Lightspeed Magazine ebook only issue #42

* November 2013 The Ships of Air Audiobook, Tantor Audio, narrated by Talmadge Ragan.

* November 2013 The Gate of Gods Audiobook, Tantor Audio, narrated by Talmadge Ragan.

* December 2013 City of Bones Audiobook, Tantor Audio, narrated by Kyle McCarley.

* December 2013 Wheel of the Infinite Audiobook, Tantor Audio, narrated by Lisa Reneé Pitts.


And I haven't done this in a while, but if anyone has a question, a general question about publishing (how it works, agents, etc), or a question about my writing, or cats, or home plumbing disasters, or anything else I've been doing this year, ask in this post and I'll try to answer it.

It's sort of cheating, because all the audiobooks were made from backlist books, and two of the stories were reprints, but it sure looks nice all listed out like that. :)

What was your most difficult book to write from a creative standpoint?

(Deleted comment)
Writing question: A number of your books include central relationships where the woman is more powerful or higher status than the man. Moon and Jade, of course, but also Rian and Maskelle, Khat and Elen. Do you set out deliberately to create that reversal of the usual trope, or is that just the way the characters come to you? Thanks.

Hi, we love your Raksura novels. I wanted to get the novellas (those that are done, or all when complete) for my son. But I don't seem to be able to find even the ebooks. Could you point me in the right direction? Also, any chance, once they are all done, of publishing them as a small book? We don't have any e-readers and love to have books.

Thanks, but the novellas haven't been published yet. I'm still waiting to hear from the publisher when they're going to come out as ebooks, and if they're going to do a print collection yet. I'll post about it here as soon as I know.
