I’m pleased (and somewhat relieved) to announce that I’ve finally finished the first draft of Bringer of Light. Right now I’m thinking that, except for a few minor issues, it’s pretty damn good and will hardly need any rework. In about a week’s time I’ll have changed my mind, and it’ll be the worst thing I ever wrote, requiring a complete rewrite before delivery. This is quite normal.
I’m taking a few days off, then revisiting some long-neglected short stories before coming back to the novel with a more balanced view.
Meanwhile, my advance copies of Guardians of Paradise arrived this week, which was a cause of much rejoicing. I still experience immense pleasure the first time I pick up a physical copy of one of my books.
