It was 11:14pm ET when I started this post eight minutes after I got home, as I mentioned I've been busy. I signed a new client, one Irene Radford. The divine mind behind the Dragon Nimbus series, the Star God's series, and Merlin's Descendants series, among others. Go buy dozens, they're good reading and it will help me sell more of her stuff. You can go read this fab ladies far more interesting blog here: [profile] ramblin_phyl 

The other thing I did was talk to a writers group. Somehow they managed to put up with me for two hours of talking and still invited me to Friendly's for soda and ice cream afterwards. I had fun, they were a great audience attentive, inquisitive and they even laughed at my jokes. It was a fun day, but seven hours out of the house did cut into how much attention I could pay to the world. If the world ended, we were invated by aliens or anything like that please tell me.

Dave Freer was mentioned as one of the funniest writers in SF/F. This is of course not news to those who read devour everything he writes.

Facebook's current terms of service give them the right to do what they wish with any content you post for as long as you leave it up. This means your stories, pictures, wall conversations and comments on other peoples notes. I've already stopped feeding my LiveJournal into Facebook and won't restore it until they have sensible, and non preadatory TOS's. More here.
The nice folks at Audible have let me know that the audio version of James Enge's debut novel The Blood of Ambrose is scheduled to be released on April 21st.

Larry Dixon will be Artist Guest of Honor, the Special Guest will be Mercedes Lackey and Eric Flint will be Toastmaster.

James Enge has turned in the sequel to his soon to be best loved Blood Of Ambrose to Pyr. The sequel is currently titled This Crooked Way
This is what he said about it in his conference on Baen's Bar;

Tasmarin is a place of dragons. a plane cut off from all others worlds where dragons can be dragons, and humans can be dinner. It's a place of islands, forests, mountains and wild oceans, filled with magical denizens. Fionn -- the black dragon -- calmly tells anyone who will listen that he's going to destroy the place. Of course he's a joker, a troublemaker and a dragon of no fixed abode. No one ever believes him.

He's dead serious.

Others strive to refresh the magics that built this place. To do so they need the combined magics of all the intelligent species, to renew the ancient balance and compact. There is just one problem. They need a human mage, and dragons systematically eliminated those centuries ago. Their augury has revealed that there is one, and they seek her desperately. Unfortunately, she's fallen in with Fionn, who really doesn't want them to succeed. He has his own reasons and designs.

The part he hadn't worked out is that she will affect his plans too.  Chaos, roguery, theft, heroism, kidnapping, love, trouble and war follow. And chaos. Did I mention chaos?

If one were wanting to know when it will be available... Toni's Table in Baen's Bar would be the place to ask since I haven't been told yet. Dave can be found on his LJ [livejournal.com profile] davefreer on facebook, and of course on the
Bar in "Dr Monkey".

So, I was struck by an inspiration to go spelunking on Amazon to look for upcoming books. After wandering around a bit I looked to see if the cover art for James  Enge's Blood of Ambrose was up yet.

Ambrose Cover Art

As you can see, it is.

What is this world coming to when I like cover art?

John Scalzi, he of the internet Mecca the Whatever blog has posted about Dave Freer's latest book. He mentions that it is an idea book, and much like his Old Mans War it has real character development, and real live plot. Go see what other people have to say.

I learned that Robert Asprin has passed away. He, was one of the first writers to get me to read a series enthusiastically. The Myth series, and later the Phule's Company books were perfect for when I wanted something light, quick and quirky. The jokes always raised an eyebrow and dragged a laugh from me no matter how gloomy I might have been. His references to classical literature were deftly made, and his insights into people were never appreciated enough.

The craft is lesser today.

I'm pretty sure I mentioned once or twice that I'd be at Ravencon this weekend. I know it says so on my website. Now I just wish real life hadn't gotten in the way of getting ready for the con until tonight.

A well...

I'll be looking at some of the slush this weekend as well. Anyone who submitted to the correct inbox for Winter Workout who has not received a final response yet should drop me a message via the contact form on my website.
Super secret subtle hint below:

For those who have received their reply, the shorter and more positive it was the more i liked it. If i said something about there being a better place to start the book, I may have really liked it if that was the largest comment on it.
