The Little Book that Flew Away: Fly, Fly Little Book

Aug 25, 2014

Tomorrow is the official release day for THE MIRROR EMPIRE, my fourth published novel and the first in a new epic fantasy series. Folks always want to know how you feel on book launch day, and the thing is, you know, I can tell you that on the *eve* of book launch day, I feel resigned. Not in a bad way, mind.

Which is why things have been so quiet here. I was gunning to be done with the huge revised monster and sending it off to my agent before heading out for my trip this week, but that hasn’t happened. All I can say to everybody is, I think the wait will be worth it. Until then, enjoy one of the fine views that’s inspired this...
