Subject: (News) Horizon is on the horizon
Date: Thu, 31 Jan 2008

Hiya --

It's official: the subtitle of the second volume of the Wide Green World, er, The Sharing Knife Continued duology will be Horizon. Eos very much wanted to keep to the one-word pattern, understandable with so much series title and author's name already crowding the cover.

The Sharing Knife, Vol. 4: Horizon

Projected publication date: February, 2009.

Subject: (chat) Galleys yay!
Date: Wed, 02 Jan 2008

Ah ha --

The galleys for Passage finally arrived this morning, five days later than intended but good enough. I've started my first read-through -- they look very clean indeed. Man, I still love this book, even at this stage of late overdose.

The next related para-book work for this volume will doubtless be some on-line PR stuff, climaxing in a book tour at the end of April/beginning of May, but really, when the galleys go back to New York the book is essentially bagged. You all will doubtless spot the bound galleys on e-Bay before I do. I know there are at least four people on this very list who have read the manuscript, but I suppose I ought not encourage cruel snerking and teasing. Much.

Now I await (still) the line edit for Volume 4. I'd been expecting it in early December, but stuff evidently happened. I did improve the hours by cleaning my office yesterday, a between-books chore I'd been putting off. I think it has something to do with firing up my neglected exercise program last week; fix the body and the mind will follow. In fact, start with the body. Because by this stage of winter deconditioning it needs some lead time.

And my new water softener was successfully installed, to boot. Now my glassware will stop looking like nascent stalagmites.

Ta, L.
