It’s quiet… too quiet!

Some of you may be wondering why I went and set up this blog and almost never use it. Shouldn’t there be new posts every so often?

Yes, there should. And someday, I hope there will be.

Right now, though, I’ve got two books months past deadline — one I said I’d deliver by January 1, the other by the end of February — and I’m in the middle of serializing The Vondish Ambassador, and Helix requires my attention every so often, and so on and so forth, so I just haven’t found the time.

But I haven’t signed any new contracts or made any other promises beyond the three books in progress and one more essay for BenBella’s “Smart Pop” series, so I’m hoping to have a little more slack in the schedule by spring of ’07.

  1. Lawrence,

    I will tell you from deep personal experience that spending a lot of time on the internet prevents you from getting just about anything else done. Unlike most people, I get paid for it.

    So please, keep writing and neglect your blog!

  2. Thank you for your concern — and honestly, I know you’re right, but sometimes messing around online is a necessary break.

    I’ll try not to overdo it.

  3. The second volume, The Ninth Talisman, will be out in hardcover in May.

    The third volume, The Summer Palace, isn’t finished yet; I work on it when I’m not working on more urgent projects (such as The Vondish Ambassador).

  4. Lawrence,

    I dunno, letting an online serial get in the way of a regular published book? Doesn’t seem like a good balance of financial priorities.

    Of course, I’m biased because I’m waiting for the print versions to read the new Ethshar stuff.
