Meeting the needs of the good people of Xarh

Update 6.370

Greetings, Xarhians!

I'm back again to update my comings-forth and goings-on. The writing is moving along at a slower pace lately. This is in part because of my tough schedule this time of year. Normally my day job starts to pick up in demand, but it's been a bit heavier than normal already. This usually means I have need of a lot of down time between breaks for writing, sleeping, eating, and generally being available for all of those never-ending social necessities that fall into the cracks between. 

On the Chain hardcover front, the editing is nearly finished. I'm a few weeks behind my prior schedule, but that became somewhat expected after the calendar went haywire. I'm not entirely sure when I'll be able to wrap that up and get it into the hands of those gifted formatters and graphic artists. Hopefully sooner rather than later. My primary editor is busier than I am right now, and she needs to go over all of the Chain work before it gets sent out, so that may be another country heard from. 

In the meantime I'll be plugging away at the Xarhcanum, Jaliun, and going over the trilogy edits. This time of year can be tricky for me (reiterating). All of my musical creations have been put on hold for the same reason. You'll have to bear with my goofy schedule. Having a release of the final book in the trilogy last year, over this same time period, was a grand thing, but 2016 is already a different animal.

Rest assured, Xarh isn't going away or being put on the table. There's always another layer being added somewhere, it's just a matter of timelines being shifted around and releases being tinkered with. 

Be safe out there, my friends. I'll see you soon. Happy reading!

“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.”
