Hella Week

by wjw on September 9, 2018

9781538095232_p0_v1_s550x406So Barnes & Noble finally got around to putting the Investments paperback on sale, and here’s your link.

Otherwise, it’s been a hella week.  The Accidental War dropped on Tuesday.  I sent Quillifer the Knight to the publisher at 1am Friday morning.  I opened a bottle of champagne afterwards, but discovered it had turned to sparkling vinegar.  I didn’t even know that was possible.

Thursday I gave a one-hour interview to the Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast (which will be broadcast later).  Saturday I had a signing at a local bookstore, and sold more books than I thought I would.

I’ve also started physical therapy for an inflamed piriformis— that’s butt muscle to you— plus continued martial arts classes— otherwise known as piriformis-inflaming exercise.

So next week I’m going on vacation for ten or twelve days.  I won’t say where, except that I might just go fishing while I’m there.  Only it’s more likely I’ll just think about fishing, and then not do it.

Why is there a Ringworld on the cover? Any kzinti or Pierson’s puppeteers inside?

Hope The Accidental War is selling well, I’m enjoying it quite a bit so far!

I am looking forward to the second Quillifer.

Loved the Accidental War, and I can’t wait for the next book! I was wondering, have you ever put together a wormhole map of the praise empire? I’d love to see how it’s laid out.

Yes, I’ve got a rather crude map. This next series is going to expand all that, however.

I have no idea how autocorrect decided “praxis,” an actual word, was praise. Stupid autocorrect. Here’s hoping the map’s in the next book!

Brendan, people have been complaining to Apple for over a decade now that they do not discuss the avoidance of overhead obstacles nearly as often as Apple autocorrects for. They’ll get around to words that only professional lexicographers have ever heard of some time after the incoming ice age finishes.
