So! Last night we turned The Gathering Edge in to Madame the Editor. It weighs in at just about 111,800 words, and is All Theo, All the Time, which makes Edge the direct sequel to Dragon Ship, with the action taking place concurrently with that described in Dragon in Exile and Alliance of Equals.
No, we don’t know when the book will be published.
UPDATE: Madame tells us that Edge is tentatively scheduled for publication in May 2017.
Turning in a book, of course, means that I Never Have to Write Again. That being so, I took some time this morning to update a few webpages.
Also, while I was not-writing, I vacuumed the house, including! taking the vacuum cleaner completely apart to find out why it wasn’t suctioning. I never did find a blockage, but apparently the mere act of taking it apart and putting it back together again was sufficient to fix whatever the problem was.
What else? Oh. Of possible interest, and as reported elsewhere:
The Gathering Edge is the. . .
72nd collaborative work by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller
20th novel-length Liaden Universe® Adventure
24th collaborative Lee & Miller novel
29th novel by Sharon Lee
The rest of the day involves some more cleaning of the actual house. I don’t know how it is that writing a book in the back of the house results in the front of the house looking like a bomb hit it, but there it is. I’ve seen it many times. Also, I should probably get all this. . .stuff off of my desk before the cats clear it for me.
Oh! As a reward for having fought Theo to a standstill and handed in the book, Steve and I this morning Ceremonially De-Boxed Visitor, which we may now read together.
And that? Is all I’ve got.
