Yes, yes, I know: What in ghod’s name has the woman been doing, besides reading books?
Well, for one thing — I’ve been working on an embroidery project. Also doing, as ever, less than my fair share of keeping the house running, and marveling, as I do every year about this time how, when the snow decides to go, it go. The ground crew will be here any day now to do the spring cleanup, and before you know it, we’ll be getting the pop-up gazebo situated, and Steve will be dragging the grill out of its corner and onto the open deck.
I’ve also been writing a book. Salvage Right broke 82,000 words last night, so that’s right on target for its June turn-in. For those coming in late, Salvage Right is the story of what’s doin’ at Tinsori Light. Slightly more information here.
In other news, we do have a book coming out on May 3. Fair Trade is the third book following the adventures of Jethri Gobelyn ven’Deelin, who made his first, admittedly awkward, bow in Balance of Trade; his second, somewhat more nuanced, in Trade Secret.
If you’d like a signed copy of Fair Trade, you can preorder the hardcover from Uncle Hugo’s (now in a new location!) — here. Please note that personalizations are not available at this time.
There’s still no word regarding an audiobook edition, for those who partake.
Steve and I are planning to attend ChiCon8, the 80th World Science Fiction Convention, in — surprise! — Chicago, from September 1-5. Information here.
Going somewhat further out — Steve and I will be Writer Guests of Honor at Heliosphere 2023 in Piscataway, NJ, in April. We’re promised that the website will be updated as soon as everyone’s recovered from Heliosphere 2022.
And that’s what I’ve been doing. Nothing much exciting to write to y’all about, and frankly I’m OK with that.
Everybody stay safe.
