All of my recent posts have been about other stuff, but yes, I’m still a writer, and yes, I’m working on a book right now. I’m currently in the middle of a rewrite of Book 3, jazzing up the beginning to make John properly disturbing. I told my wife my plan and she said “agh, John can’t do that, I like him,” so I knew I’d found a winner.
Also of note, I just got a Tor winter catalog, and my book is in it! Yay! Apparently April is part of Winter in the publishing world. The write-up is great, and they included the two awesome quotes from F. Paul Wilson and Brandon Sanderson, but the best part is the top corner, where a little icon says “A Winter 2010 Tor Select Title.” I don’t know precisely what that entails, but out of 50 or 60 titles there’s only one other book that has it (The Point Man, by Steve Englehart), so I take it as an awesome sign of awesomeness. Also of note, the book is being released by Tor, not the Forge imprint; we weren’t certain until recently which way they’d decide to go.
