I am pleased to report I have finished the first draft of a new Penric & Desdemona novella, sequel to "Mira's Last Dance". Title is decided all but one vowel -- I'll add it when my aesthetic waffling concludes. About 46,980 words.

I plan to have cover art by Ron Miller again, of which I will post a sneak peek in due course.

Still the final revision pass to go, plus waiting on comments from two test readers -- I really should wait for the latter before doing the former. I can occupy myself devising vendor-page copy while I wait, I suppose.

This e-publication thing is getting frighteningly fast, in part because a lot of little things which were baffling decisions or upward learning curves first round are now set templates which only need replicated.

I'm thinking e-pub in November, but we'll see. I had originally planned this as my winter project, but it got its legs under it in August and hardly stopped till FIN on Monday.

Ta, L.

My Japanese translator, Ms. Ayako Ogiso of Tokyo, very kindly sent me on a copy of the Japanese translation of Cryoburn, just out there I believe.

Front cover:

Back cover:

And the little wrap that is commonly found around these small-sized Japanese paperbacks:

In all these years, I never have found out just what they say. They must be conveying something, to allow them to obscure the often very good cover art.
