So two big bits of news today. The first is that I finished up the last (hopefully, though I doubt it) round of edits on Prayers to the Wind and sent it out to the agent who requested the entire book after having read the first three chapters. As soon as I hear anything back I’ll be sure to post an update. In the meantime I’ll continue obsessively checking my email every half an hour.
In other news, in light of the Writers of the Future semi-finalist thing (and because the damn story is too long to submit anywhere else), I’ve put “One Last Moment of Silence” up on Amazon. LINK. I wanted to make it free, but Amazon apparently has a 0.99$ limit, so a dollar it is. I am, however, ready and willing to email copies of the story completely free to anyone who might want it. In PDF, sadly, not eBook (I’m not quite certain how to format it for ePub). But that option’s there, if you want a super cool short story for free. Contact the author link’s on your left.
Last but not least, I’ll be doing a Q&A/self-promotional thing on the Fantasy subreddit this Wednesday. I put the prologue to The Dark Captain up there in the past and got a very positive reaction, so it’ll be interesting to see if that holds true when posting under my real name instead of Kaladin’s…
Oh, I lied. One more thing. I read “The Lies of Locke Lamora” and “Red Seas Under Red Skies” by Scott Lynch this past week. Well… more like devoured them, really. If you haven’t read them, do yourself a favor and do so. It’s “White Collar” meets “Assassin’s Creed.” With sharks. And swearing. And if that doesn’t sell you on it nothing will.
