In the comments, she asked about fanfic, and my feeling is: I can't say that I'll read it, but I'm enormously flattered whenever anyone does it. Putting that much work into something, because you enjoyed what I did, I take as a wonderful compliment.
I'm on the second to last chapter of The Element of Fire revision, and it's really struck me how much off-camera sex is in that book. Yes, it's modeled loosely on Louis XIII's court, but wow. It's been funny doing the revision, because I literally haven't looked at it in years, since I wrote The Death of the Necromancer (set in the same city but a bit over 200 years later) and there are sections of it and subplots I didn't remember at all.
Oh, meant to mention, Element had twenty chapters total and I've posted up to fourteen.
