We’ll start with the heads-up. A few weeks from now there’ll be a podcast up on Gamer’s Tavern, in which we have a discussion of the Deed of Paksenarrion and its connections to RPGs, and other stuff. I don’t know the date yet, but will post it on Twitter when they tell me.

For Orbit UK, Rachel Bach and I interviewed each other; my interview of her went up a few weeks ago (I did mention that, didn’t I? I hope?) and her interview of me is up now at the Orbit blog. It’s not specifically about Crown of Renewal but it’s a nice general thing. We were asked to pose 4-5 questions for each other–and we both enjoyed the process.
Next week (Wednesday the 27th) I’ll be Twitter-chatting with Brian Thomas Schmidt on SFF Chat for an hour (no doubt annoying my choir director, because I won’t be at rehearsal.) Schmidt, you may recall, is the editor of Shattered Shields, the fantasy anthology a new Paksworld story is coming out in. Some of you may be too engrossed in Crown to join us, but any who want to (whose Crown copy didn’t arrive?) are welcome. As you can see from the website transcripts, Mr. Schmidt has a wicked sense of humor and I will have to be quick on my mental feet to keep up with him and those who enter the conversation. (There will be more reminders about this. That’s how the writer ego works…) Read the rest of this entry »

Lytherus.com chose me for a Featured Author Week, and the interview and blog post are now up–with a contest for copies of Limits of Power.
The interview’s fairly serious; the blog post is about the fun and the possibilities for humor while writing.

…and tomorrow the book’s out in the stores. I hope you in the US are as excited as I am, and that if you pre-ordered online, your copies arrive on your doorstep (or whatever you use) on time tomorrow. (Those of you in Europe who already have the UK version…try not to hand out too many spoilers. At least until the end of the week, OK?)

I forgot to post this separately (DUH!) as soon as I got home, but on Wednesday last week I did a video interview with Betsy Mitchell, my editor. It involved a teeny-tiny camera on a tripod…about pack-of-playing-cards size on a tripod that could’ve held a Big Fat Important Camera. In the process of setting up for it, I learned about the Book Cabinet (no, I’m not telling you. Not now, anyway.)
The video went up Sunday evening, but I was flat out from the end of trip and didn’t find it until today…should’ve posted the link before now, though.
