Hello, ladies and gentlemen! I come before you this afternoon to address the most common question I am asked every day:
"When, sir, will you release City of Light unto us?" (It's usually phrased exactly like that)
The short answer is I don't know.
The useful answer is "PROBABLY between March 30th and April 10th," because on April 10th I'll be leaving for PAX East in Boston, Massachusetts.
And now that I've gotten those more helpful responses out of the way, hit the jump for a longer answer:
This Sunday, at 12PM Eastern (or 9AM Pacific, for the heathens), I'll be a guest on the Plucky and Woo-Woo radio show!
Their show airs on the Public Service Network, and they like to interview "plucky" people with cool success stories. They also apparently enjoy talking about sci-fi and fantasy novels, so I might have something to say after all.
The show begins at 12PM (my time), and they tell me I should be on the air by 12:20.
I don't know what we'll be talking about. They told me to say something about my books, and then just "join the conversation." So we'll likely end up talking about some random stuff. Feel free to stop by, listen to my words of dubious wisdom, and depart enlightened.
Here's a link! You may notice that the radio station starts playing as soon as you visit the page, so all you have to do is follow this link on Sunday at noon (again, Eastern Time) and turn on your ears.
I know I've been pretty quiet over the past few months, and that's because I'm working hard to release City of Light before the end of this month. As soon as I have a more definite date, I'll give it to you.
But I haven't been a good host recently, and I feel like I have to make it up to you. Therefore, here's a scene from the early part of City of Light.
I'm not sure where exactly this scene will end up in the final version of CoL--I still have some decisions to make regarding how the book's introduction is structured. But I suspect this will make up part of Chapter 1 or Chapter 2.
(I haven't edited this scene much, so it's still a little rough. If you happen to notice a typo or two, please let me know and I'll fix it ASAP.)
