Today’s Magic District touches on books for the season — whether that’s the Christmas season or just the dark end of the year. (It also unwittingly duplicates Tim Pratt’s post from yesterday, so send any comments to that post instead.
A few pieces of news: I’ll be having a release party for Wild Hunt at Arisia this year. It’ll be Saturday night, details to be arranged later. (In the meantime, I gotta figure out how to run a con party. Eeep!) Hope to see you there!
Also, my short story “A Serpent in the Gears” has been accepted by Beneath Ceaseless Skies! This is a story that I absolutely love, and I’m thrilled it’s found a home with BCS. Honestly, this world — vaguely steampunk, leaning far more into fantasy than technical accuracy — has been taking up a lot of my imagination of late, and I really love working in it.
Revisions of the third book continue, bit by bit. It’s a little annoying that the day job would choose now to move into overdrive, but it can’t be helped, so I’ll persevere.
Best of the season to all of you. We’re past the solstice; the light will return, a little more each day.
…Yes, that’s the sound that chickens make. Werk…
Today’s Magic District is more than a little whiny, since it’s the outgrowth of my current situation. To sum it up: day job + revisions + overtime = AAAAAAAAAAAAA. It should get better soon, but in the meantime aaaaaaaaaaaa.
Also, I’ll have some news soon about the release of Wild Hunt — now with 10% more parties! (Parties may or may not involve cake and/or hats.)
You are in the middle of revisions.
You have a Magic District post due.
