I’m just crawling up from the editing mines, folks, and what do I find as I emerge blinking into the sunshine? The following lovely message (and poem) from a fan of Moorehawke. Some mornings it’s just great to be alive. Thanks Allie D P Morris for making my day!
Hi there, I just wanted to float you a quick note to say how much I’m enjoying re-reading The Moorehawke Trilogy for the fourth or fifth time. It does such a good job of sucking me in. Today I took ‘The Poison Throne’ to the movies, read through the previews, and when they turned the lights off for the feature I thought ‘damn’. Then I was like ‘why did I even leave the house?’. I wrote the attached poem after another time I re-read them, all in a row, if you’re interested. Anyway, thanks for filling up my bookshelf with stuff I love. Have a great week!
I’m down the rabbit hole again, folks. This time for edits, as the deadline for Resonance is looming fast.
It’s the last leg of what’s been a long process, but Resonance is a big book. There’s a lot of work remaining even at this stage. So you won’t be hearing from me for the next three or so weeks.
See you at the end of August, when I emerge mole-like and blinking into the sunshine, just in time to start revisions on Come See the Sky.
hugs, and stay safe and happy while I’m away!
So we’re nearing the end of copy-edits on Resonance! It’s been over four years since I finished the first draft of this novel, believe it or not. I still love it dearly. As my beloved editor and I march valiantly towards the finish-line, I thought we’d celebrate hitting the final stretch by sharing the first chapter with you.
You can read it here on the blog , or you can download it as a pdf. I hope you enjoy it.
(Many thanks to all of you who voted for which dinkus I should use in this online edition. As you will see, the spider won out over the carriage by the slimmest of margins.)
Update midday 11/07/’14 And Spider Dinkus wins by one hairy leg! I’ll post the chapter soon, folks.
Ok guys, so we’re nearing the end of copy-edits on Resonance (the book I have coming out next year) So I thought I’d share the first chapter with you. I designed a few wee dinkuses to break up the text but I can’t decide which to use. Let me know on twitter or FB or here which you like. The one with the most votes gets used when I put the chapter up today.
The Carriage Dinkus?
The Bat Dinkus?
Or the Spider Cage Dinkus?
I’m going to leave these up until noon. Then I’ll put the new chapter online.
