I’ve already posted loudly about this at my blog, but going overboard never hurts for announcements like this. I am going on vacation June 10-17, but in reality I’ll be MIA from about the 9th to the 20th. There are also other personal matters keeping Sasha and I pretty busy and away from the internet indefinitely, but more on that when it wraps up.
I cannot stress enough that June 9-20 I am basically going dark and am going to be unreachable. This is a break I (and Sasha and Sam) sorely need and the first vacation vacation I’ve taken in years (as opposed to the working ones we’ve taken once or twice, usually combined with conventions). So if you need me, contact me by June 5th. After that, it’s iffy, and after the 9th you’re SOL until I’m back in action on the 20th.
Which brings me to my next shenanigan: I am way too busy to do ever get to do things like blog tours, cover reveals, that sort of thing. I feel like I’ve fallen off the map and get pretty lonely. I don’t think I’ll ever stop missing my Livejournal days when I got to talk to people more. So I at least can keep people better posted about stuff, I am going to try a newsletter.
It’s a once a month thing, and it’ll have the usual suspects (coming soon, recent releases, sales, upcoming events and plans) but I also hope to include WIP snippets, books I’ve read and enjoyed, other things like that. If it doesn’t pan out, no big. But if you want to sign up, the page is here (and I don’t sign people up, that shit isn’t cool. No one will be adding your name to the subscriber list except you, and it sends a ‘make sure you want this’ email anyway just to be sure).
And because I asked twitter peeps which book they wanted a snippet of to go with my vacation/last call blog post, and it was a tie between The Painted Crown and The High King’s Golden Tongue, I put Painted Crown on the blog post, and you get High King here ^__^ As I mentioned… somewhere… two of the biggest changes to this story are Lesto and Rene, who are muchly fleshed out and have bigger roles. This snippet is where you meet Rene (and first get to see Allen do what he does best) :3
Love you all! <3
