Art Talk, Links, Questions

Early this morning I got to see the second sketch by Matthew Stewart for the cover of Stories of the Raksura II: The Dead City & The Dark Earth Below (April 2015) and it is also gorgeous. I can't wait till we can finally show the finished version to people.

If you missed it, here's the final version of his cover for The Cloud Roads with two earlier versions on his site. (He won the Chesley Award for best paperback cover art in 2012 for it.)

In related news, there is a another GoodReads giveaway for Stories of the Raksura: The Falling World & The Tale of Indigo and Cloud

Couple of articles:

* We are all living among the dead by Annalee Newitz, on death and loss as we get older.

* The Guardian: Feminist games critic cancels talk after terror threat Anita Sarkeesian cancels talk at Utah State University over threats of 'the deadliest school shooting' in US history

Questions

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

Oh man, really excited to see the art for the new book! (And the new book itself!)

I am re-(re-re-re-re-re-re-)listening to the books on audio during my commute, and having all kinds of rambly thoughts about how the stories/events/characters would look through other characters' eyes (I make my own fun! :P). I know you took a shot at writing from Jade's perspective and decided to stick with Moon's POV, but do you ever compose scenes from another POV for...whatever reason? Fun, or to think things through, or whatever?
