Updates since last time

In Siege of Daylight by Gregory S. Close is now available in print; if you go to https://www.createspace.com/3697896, you can get your own copy.  If you like traditional fantasy epics, you’ll love this novel.  I’ve already read it twice.  🙂

Wednesday, May 15, is Jason Grey’s birthday.  As his author, I expect presents.  Or at least a card.

I found out a few days ago that Lois McMaster Bujold has another sci-fi novel out:  Captain Vorpatril’s Alliance.  My first thought when I found out was, What has idiot Cousin Ivan gotten himself into now?  My second thought was, I REALLY hope this novel is set two or three years after the last one.  (I want to know if my skills at pattern recognition — pun unavoidable, but make of it whatever you want — are still as good as they used to be.  I was right about the green columns, wasn’t I?)

As for updates on my/our writing:  The clone is making good progress on revising the first novel about Hrothgar Tebrey.  Halfway through revisions already, and the new word count is more than 135K; we’re expecting it to pass 150K by the end.  If all continues to go as it has been going, the revisions will be done within the next two weeks, and then it will be time for me to do that editing thing again…

About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.
