Character Quote of the Day

February 18, 2009

From Babylon:

“We don’t get prizes in Nasheen for being pretty,” Nyx said.



December 3, 2008

Man, I always forget how much I love worldbuilding.

I want to post bunches of excerpts from Babylon, but I realize the whole book is going to be full of spoilers for the other two books. That’s kind of the trouble with the slow grind of the publishing world. By the time the first book comes out, you’re already finishing up the third one (knock on wood).

Anyway, for God’s War prequel (non-spoilery even!) madness, you can always visit Nyx here.

Also, because folks keep asking: God’s War will be out next fall, sometime around September-October-November.

Yes, that’s next year (it’s publishing, OK?).

And it gives me a lot more time to get the other books right. Which I appreciate.

Fav Line of the Day

December 1, 2008

From Babylon, now officially in progress:

“There were all sorts of things you asked yourself when somebody broke things off. Was she bored? Was there a boy? Was she actually an assassin?”

Dear Book Three:

November 12, 2008

Please stop trying to write yourself in FIRST PERSON.

Save that for Twitter.

Thank you.


September 29, 2008

I started writing the opening to Babylon today in first person. I don’t think that’s going to work.

But I did finally find the right soundtrack for the novel, which is a big accomplishment in itself.

Writing begins in earnest on October 7th, when my month-of-WoW reward for finishing book 2 runs out.

Here we go again.

Babylon, Revisited

September 2, 2008

As I was reviewing the synopsis for book 3 of the bel dame books (Babylon) I realized that I accidently killed some folks in book 2 that were supposed to be in book 3.

Oh well.

They weren’t very important people anyway.
