The subject? That would be me, doing the happy dance.
I got the official release of rights from my (now former) publisher today via FedEx. I’m now free – which means, my book is officially out of print (teh woe), but I’m free to shop it around to real publishers who might actually act like professionals (teh yay).
On other book fronts:
I started and devoured naominovik‘s His Majesty’s Dragon on Sunday. Fabulous characters, fascinating sense of place, excellent story. I didn’t stop reading until I was done. Normally, I’m not so much into a historical setting. I usually prefer contemporary fantasy, but will enjoy well-done books, no matter the time period. Naomi’s book is beyond well done, it’s utterly brilliant.
Baltimore Noir debuts this week, with an event at the Enoch Pratt Library in Baltimore. It’s an anthology of mystery stories, penned by the some of the best Charm City writers, including Laura Lippman.
eep – the threatened storms have arrived – I’ll log off to spare any possibility of power freakouts. (even though I do have a heavy duty surge protector – I’m all about the safe over the sorry, especially when it involves my laptop!)
