I really want to make some sort of joke with the quote, “Winter is coming,” by you-know-who. (Not Voldemort.) But I’m not clever enough to pull it off, as it is currently Spring.

But you know what IS coming? “Gods of Rust and Rot.”

What I look like toward the end of a book.

What I look like toward the end of a book.

I waffled back and forth like the best kind of breakfast cake about whether to post a tentative release date for “Gods of Rust and Rot.” Because somehow things always take longer than I imagine. And I want this book to be the absolute best it can be. And Good, Fast, and Cheap can be mutually exclusive. On the other hand, you guys all seem to be really eager for the next book, and curious about when it will finally arrive. Working as hard as I can while being realistic about my abilities, I think I have a good idea.

I’m putting the finishing touches on the first draft and should be done in a few days. From there, it’s on to revision, editing, and all that other stuff you may have read me going into way too much depth about in a previous post. If you’re on my mailing list, you’ll get to see some scene snippets ahead of time, probably get a chance to voice your opinions about things I’m considering slipping into the book during second draft, a chance for ARC copies, goody giveaways, and, of course, first notification when the book is live and available to buy.

If you’re not on my mailing list, why not?! (signup box is over there →)

Anyway, I’m doing my best to hit an August deadline, but it is tentative, and by very definition subject to change.

I’m excited about “Gods of Rust and Rot,” and I hope you guys are, too!

(8/22)

Edited to Add: I’m just putting the finishing touches on the pre-order. Creating the cover, reviewing the text, etc. It’ll be available in a few days, and mailing list folks will have a chance to read it then, while everyone else can buy it to have it delivered directly to their kindles on release day.
