Sisterhood
It's the grand finale of the Great Schools of Dune trilogy, which we launched with SISTERHOOD OF DUNE in fall of 2011 then followed up with MENTATS OF DUNE in March 2014, and now we will complete with NAVIGATORS OF DUNE. Right after we delivered the final manuscript of MENTATS OF DUNE in March 2013, Brian and I were together in Seattle doing promotion for HELLHOLE AWAKENING. We did a book signing at University Books and also appeared at the NorWescon science fiction convention. But because we had just delivered book 2 and had all the storylines in our heads, we didn't want to miss the rare opportunity of being in the same city at the same time. So, we carved out an afternoon, sat down in a diner not too far from the NorWescon convention, and spent hours figuring out how we were going to wrap up all those plotlines. We had a great, invigorating session, throwing around a lot of ideas, and took copious notes in the broad strokes of the plot for NAVIGATORS OF DUNE. But that novel wasn't next on our plate. Later that year we also had to write the epic finale to our Hellhole trilogy, [...]

BLOOD OF THE COSMOS
Yes, I have disappeared from my own blog for quite a while, only popping up to do a quick post about a book bundle in the past month or so. I have been even more buried than usual with writing and publishing deadlines and life in general, and although I do post quick updates regularly on my Facebook page (and go here to join, if you aren't already Following), this has unfortunately not managed to climb to the top of the stack. But I've been clearing the decks like crazy and now I see a little bit of daylights. WRITING: for most of the month I have been immersed in the rewrite and then the final edit of my 750-page manuscript of BLOOD OF THE COSMOS, second book in the Saga of Shadows trilogy, following THE DARK BETWEEN THE STARS. This involved adding new chapters and scenes, rewriting a lot of interactions, fine-tuning some plot points, and tying up loose ends. After I finished my rewrites to the whole manuscript—750 pages—I then turned right around back to page 1 to edit all 750 pages all over again. In the middle of that, I went up to Estes Park on the edge [...]

It's that time of year to feast on great spooky stories—and Halloween means FUN as well as SCARY. So, a batch of Urban Fantasy novels is just the ticket. I'm curating a new Urban Fantasy bundle for storybundle.com, a remarkable collection of ten terrific novels by bestselling, legendary authors and rising stars. As always, at storybundle, you name your own price—whatever you feel the books are worth, and a portion of the proceeds goes to charity (in this case, the Challenger Centers for Space Science Education, Mighty Writers, and Girls Write Now). The Urban Fantasy bundle contains my original Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. collection WORKING STIFF, seven cases featuring everybody's favorite dead detective—a special sneak preview, because the book itself will not be released until January! And the bundle includes a new Harry Dresden book by Jim Butcher—WORKING FOR BIGFOOT, all three of Harry Dresden's Bigfoot cases, never before collected. This book is not available anywhere else. AND, Vicki Pettersson presents an original, never-released work THE REORDERING, which is not available elsewhere. AND AND Carole Nelson Douglas put together a brand new collection of her popular Delilah Street Urban Fantasy stories, just for this bundle. Other New York Times bestselling authors [...]
