Oh, and of course, I've started to think of all the cool things I should have found a way to get into Range of Ghosts. Well, it's got at least one full revision coming--
First off, cover art for The Sea Thy Mistress--in my hot little hands.
Okay, Cahey's hair looks a little funny, and I'm not sure where the cloak comes from, but that's probably a universal signature of This Is Fantasy. I'm dead pleased that he's on the cover, though, and that he's sufficiently brown. No idea where the Celtic spirals are coming from, but hey, Norse, Celtic, it's all the same, and it looks pretty... *g*
February 11th is our chance to prove that fantasy novels with brown people on them sell just fine, right? (This was a very hard book for me to write, for personal reasons, and I'm very neurotic about people reading it. But it's not written until its read, as they say. And it's full of things I felt like I needed to say, and possibly work through for myself. Hopefully it will help others who have been through similar adventures in their lives.)
Anyway, it's an eye-catcher, and I'm very happy.
Additionally, we have cover art for METAtropolis II:
That one drops Nov 16th. Available in audio format only for now, from Audible and other sources. (Like iTunes, I think).
Now for the not-so-great news. Realms of Fantasy is shutting down its presses. I will continue reviewing books at Tor.com and Ideomancer, which does absolutely nothing to lessen my sorrow at seeing another bastion of the genre fail.
