As most of you know, I took last week off for a post-book vacation. It was awesome, very refreshing, and I only had to wrestle 3-4 manticores. Usually I have to take care of at least five a week, so that was a nice break.
But since I got back, things in my personal life have been hectic. Nothing dramatic. It's just a mix of prior commitments, catching up on what I missed while I was gone, and some random crap hitting my family all coming this week.
Bottom line: this week was a lot harder than I expected. However, catching up on work has meant also catching up on the fan response to Underlord.
You all are amazing.
I came back to an endless stream of encouragement. A truly crazy number of positive reviews, messages expressing excitement, and so much discussion of the story that I couldn't read it all.
I'm just very grateful for you guys right now. You've been more supportive of me than I deserve, and I thank you.
