A New Release

Today is the official release date for the mass market paperback edition of Weavers of War, the fifth and final book of my Winds of the Forelands series.  It should be in bookstores soon, and I expect that it's now available from Amazon.  Yay!

As a writer, I always tend to think that my best work is my most recent book.  I've recently finished an initial draft of The Horsemen's Gambit, the second volume of Blood of the Southlands, and believe that it represents some of my finest writing to date.  

That said, though, I also have favorites among my books -- two to be precise -- and Weavers is one of them.  It was so much fun to write.  All the threads I had been playing with throughout the first four books of the series came together just as I had hoped they would, I finally got to write all the confrontations, reconciliations, and plot twists that I had been imagining for the previous five years, and I even had a few surprises crop up, making the writing process entertaining as well as satisfying.

The hardcover was published last February, and now the paperback is out.    Hope you enjoy it!

Today's music:  Bela Fleck (Crossing the Tracks)

Yay! Congratulations! Are you going to dress in disguise and go to watch people buy your book in droves today?

Thanks, Kaaron! No, that wasn't my plan. It's not that I'm not desperate enough to do such a thing. But we live so far from the nearest bookstore.....

How far is far? There is not a bookshop in Fiji which sells new books, though we have a very respectable remainders shop which seems to get things very early. Not that I imagine your book will end up there, of course!

For a decent bookstore (as opposed to the little bookstore here in town, which carries my books but generally caters to the Uni more than trade books) it's a good 80 km.

You'd have to make a day of it! Take a packed lunch!
