you go out at night with your headphones on. again.

I mentioned this briefly in the last post, and I think I'll mention it again, because I could not be more thrilled: Scott's handed in the final revisions on The Republic of Thieves, and its publication date is set for October 10th 2013 in the UK and October 8th 2013 in the US.

I know it's been a long wait, but it's really for reals happening now, and it would take the Heat Death of the Universe to stop it. I was actually in the room when he emailed the final manuscript in. (Yes, I am a lucky bitch. And my boyfriend is a genius. I noticed. And I'm so pleased and proud you'd think it was one of my own books.)


Hell, I want to hold a copy of this book in my hands just for the cover art.

That boy I like can write some, that's for sure.

In other and more immediate news, and speaking of being proud and pleased and writing it myself--I seem to have a book coming out too. My author copies of Shattered Pillars arrived on Tuesday with a thump against the porch. I have proof!

Actually, I have something beyond proof--I have actual copies!

I've been sniffing it ever since.

It goes on sale next Tuesday, the 19th. And I kind of wish I had time to enjoy it, but I'm on deadline for Metatropolis III: Electric Boogalee* currently. And that basically takes precedence over everything, especially since I'm writing something Highly Plotty and those Go Slow.

So back at it now.




*Actual title: Metatropolis III: Green Space, starring Jay Lake, Ken Scholes, Karl Schroeder, Mary Robinette Kowal, Seanan McGuire, and, er, me.

Also Also, the cover of Shattered Pillars has two brown people on it, and the female one is not sexualized.

It's almost like somebody is fucking paying attention.
Dare we hope?
