A Star Wars interview

TC#1
 So Mandy at The Force Net, the biggest SW fan watering hole, dropped me some interview questions and I answered them. Great questions, it was lovely to be asked, so if you're interested in what I had to say you can head over here!

A Belated Thank you

RM Orbit
Or did I do this already? I swear, my brain is dribbling out of my ears. Anyhow, it never hurts to say thank you twice.

To everyone for their kind words on the announcement of my deal with Orbit, big hugs. I'm excited and scared out of my tiny mind, which I think is probably a good place to be. I wish I had the time right now to thank each and every one of you individually, but -- ha! I finished the galleys for Siege on Friday, spent the weekend up to my eyeballs in housework and SW interviews and stuff, and shortly I run round to the post office to pick up the galleys for Reluctant Mage. Hopefully I'll have those done and dusted by Wednesday ( because really, who needs sleep?) and then I can commit 100% without interruptions to finishing Blight of Mages.

As an aside, while snatching a bit of me-time over the weekend, I watched some NYPD Blue (one of my all time favourite things ever) and some season 5 Top Chef (just out on dvd. But no other seasons. Very very odd) and got jolted twice. First of all because there are many, many shots of the twin towers in NYPD Blue, and seeing them captured in footage filmed prior to 9/11 never fails to smack me a bit sideways. Even though it's been a few years now, it was such a defining event (and what this must be like for New Yorkers, or other US folk, I can't imagine) it still slaps me back to those awful days. Hmm. And then of course, watching Top Chef, there was Natasha Richardson hosting one of the challenges at a charity do -- and I realised that I was watching one of her last filmed appearances before she had the skiing accident and died. And that was just seriously freaky. I wanted to scream at the tv -- don't go skiing, don't go, or if you go for pity's sake don't send the ambulance away. It was truly horrible. And it made me wonder if that's what it's like to be a no holds barred psychic, to look at someone and know something about them with absolute confidence, and know that you can't change their fate. Eeesh.

So that was my weekend!!!!

It occurs to me I haven't shown you the Voyager cover for the book. So here it is! With many thanks to Greg Bridges.
