Halls of Power is sitting at a bit over 22,500 words thus far, and is going reasonably well. I wish my muse wasn’t so fickle some days, or I could have gotten even more done this past week, but things are going well as I get into it.
The poll I put up for the next series after Ancient Dreams has now had 94 votes, with nearly half going to Born a Queen, with Through the Fire in second place and Sisters of Radiance in third. Dreams of White is in such distant 4th place that it’s unlikely it’ll turn around. Still, I’m not closing the poll for a while yet. I consider what people have indicated to be a priority list for me.
But everything being equal, I doubt that the percentages are going to change in the near future, so I’ve decided on the weekends I’m going to edit Born a Queen to unwind a little. With any luck at all, when I release Halls of Power I’ll have Born a Queen about ready to go up for pre-order.
The audiobook of Ancient Ruins is up, and has been doing very well thus far. I’m somewhat surprised, but I’ve also never been huge into audiobooks on a personal basis, since I read far faster than any narrator I’ve heard.
Finally, I have a pile of copies of Ancient Ruins and Spells of Old! I ordered 15 of each, and they arrived on Friday. Sadly, the vast majority of them are spoken for, but I’ve got a handful of spares. Did you know that if you publish a physical copy of a book in the United States you’re required to send two copies at your own expense to the Library of Congress, for them to do with as they please? I didn’t, until someone I know in Ireland pointed out that she had to send copies to several libraries and the like in Great Britain.
Anyway, that’s it for news this week. Hope everyone has/has had a great weekend!
