The insomnia has been crushing me for about the past week, so once again I’ve let the blog fall by the wayside. (But hey, the last post was about an eclipse. So that’s worth a week of down time, right? Right?) Meanwhile, I’m working on a second draft of my current novel, Something More Than Night, which is due on my editor’s desk this summer. I’ll probably write a post about that at some point.
I’d planned to write a long post about the awesomeness of Blue Heaven yesterday. But the insomnia cycle hit pretty hard, so I was too brain dead to do much of anything.
This final afternoon on the Outer Banks has proven an exciting day for the final Milkweed book.
We finished editorial revisions on the manuscript today, meaning that Necessary Evil is officially moving into production now. Hooray!
And, just now, I’ve received a first look at the cover. Sneak peek below the cut.
ARCs have been out for a while, so early reviews are starting to trickle in. I’m pretty militant about not reading discussions of my books, so when my editor and publicist start forwarding reviews to me I know that’s a good sign. I’m proud of Coldest War and can’t wait to see the print and ebook editions out in the world.
OK. I really try to ensure that my infrequently updated blog isn’t merely a sockpuppet for self-promotion and updates on my books. Sometimes there are photographs of handcuffs, or long incoherent stories about ghosts. But this is a busy few months for me, publishing wise, so bear with me.
And besides, these three updates are really cool.
