Oh. My. Goodness.
I had high hopes for this summer. Release Harbinger in August. Finish the next Ilauris-based book. Finish the next Bobby book. Read a lot.
Yeah, none of that happened. Instead, I had the most stressful yet awesome three weeks EVER as I not only sent my kids off for longer than we’ve ever been apart before, but also moved from the right coast to the left and did Ragbrai in the middle. So many details! So many annoyances! So many surprises!
For the record, Idaho is the scariest fricking place to drive on the highway in the universe.
But that was weeks ago. I’ve finally settled in and gotten back to work. Everything is happening later than I wanted. It is, however, still happening. Case in point: Harbinger is real, and it’s in the final editing stages. More importantly, we have a cover.
Blue! The last cover was black. This one is blue. Blue happens to be my son’s favorite color, but that’s not why we picked it. Note the clever wordplay of ‘Take a plunge’ with both water and a knife on the cover. Isn’t that clever? Nod your head and agree to boost our egos.
Harbinger continues the tale of Chavali and the world of Tilzam. She’s settling into her new life and has brand new problems, idiots, and annoyances to deal with. As you might guess, there are knives and water involved. Some of both are metaphorical, because Erik and I are sneaky like that.
