... The Crippled God, a very different style of writing than Erikson's previous books in the series, what's with all the constant italic monologues?!
Well, if you want L-E-N-G-T-H-Y description and a glacial pace, Seak, that one might be just what you need. Really liked her collaborations with Raymond Feist, but really struggled with this series, even though I wanted to like it. Be interested to read what you think.Started The Curse of the Mistwraith by Janny Wurts. I'm a fan of lots of description, so I hope that holds up here.
Reading The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod 8th Grade Bites. I've read 2 chapters, and found it hard to put down.
Vladimir Tod is a teen vampire. It has humor in it, and I think I'll find multiple lines that I'll remember.
I'm reading The Black Company by Glen Cook - I've received so many recommendations for this one, but so far...not really clicking with me. Still I'm not giving up - I hear it picks up. Here's to hoping.
A crazy way to run a business. If you have no stock on the shelves, no wonder your sales are in decline.
Right now I am reading Song of the Beast by Carol Berg. I'm only about 100 pages in but I can tell I am going to enjoy the book.
I loved your Riyria series. What is up next for you and when will it be out?
Antithesis: Two opposing individuals possess limitless magic, providing the universe balance. An unexpected death transfers this power to an unsuspecting bystander who is clueless of the consequences of his newfound abilities.
And the proposed back of the book marketing stuff:
As to when they will come out? No idea yet. They are not under contract so I guess that depends on whether Orbit likes what they see or not. I'm hoping to have one of the books edited and off to them by Mid April. Thanks for asking!Have you ever wondered how the world will end?
No? Well don’t sweat it. Most people don’t, and the few that do expect the cause will be a dramatic change in climate, a pandemic, or mostly likely war. That’s what we’ve all been taught to believe, and we’re comfortable with rational explanations. But people weren’t always so quick to accept the facts provided by the so-called experts. There used to be a time when we believed in myth and magic. Our minds were open to the idea of believing in what can’t be seen…the fantastical.
I had been like you until I met Winston Stewart; the day I learned to believe that there are other forces at work—not the least of which is fate. Fate is an amazing thing. It put Gandhi in South Africa, Nelson at Gibraltar, and Winston Stewart on that train in Alexandria Virginia.
You say you don’t know who Winston Stewart is? Don't worry...You will.
