Now that it’s almost Ground Hog Day …
Yeah. It’s been that kind of year so far.
I have the edits back on Captain’s Share — Thank you to the Dislexic_Wombat for his unflagging devotion to this effort for the last eight months — but I’m bogged down working through Full Share and getting the copy edits incorporated into the text. That should be coming our Real Soon Now.
Double will be after that, Captain’s after that .. and Owner’s Share is needing an editor who’s not intimidated by 200,000 word manuscripts.
Some people have reported that the ebooks are not available in their regions. It seems that the Ridan editions are still linked into vary places and – since those editions are no long available anywhere – that’s causing the problem. Quarter Share and Half Share are out with full, world-wide distribution. I’m selling copies in most countries so I’m pretty sure they’re available through Amazon at least. If you’re getting the “Not available in your country” message — that’s not my book.
The fantasy books are moving well and you should be looking over at Lammas Wood for information about Tanyth Fairport. I’ll make any announcements about her stuff there first.
Healthwise, I’m getting better but it’s a slow process. I’m getting the medical care I need which is a big step out of the river in Egypt. I’ve lost weight and need to keep losing it. I’ve got more dental work in my future … and some eye surgery, too. Always something new and exciting.
The daily podcast has stumbled along and will continue as often as I can manage it. (I need to go out right now, in fact.)
This weekend (Jan 25-27) I’ll be in Colorado Springs at the COSine conference — and I’m taking my laptop and editing with me, just in case. If you’re in the area, it’s a fun little con and SM Stirling is this year’s GoH. I’m REALLY looking forward to this one.
That’s about all I can tell you right now. It’s been a tough year and I’m working to put that behind me. It’s taking me more time than I want to rebuild the infrastructure that I lost and to recover the momentum that I’d gained before Ridan. We’ll get there.
Thank you all for staying with me over the bumpy bits.
