The Dust Settles (23/3/2009)

Publication day has been and gone. The earth continues to rotate about its axis. There has been no spontaneous outbreak of world peace and the queen has not phoned in her congratulations. Little, in fact, has changed save for a large transference of alcohol and other miscellaneous goods and services in exchange for what was left of The Adamantine Palace’s advance.

Yet I am strangely content.

There isn’t much news. Warehouse stock levels are pleasingly low although an early reprint is unlikely to be in the offing. There has been movement on the US and French editions (the translator has been in touch) but nothing from Germany and no new hints of dates for any of them as yet. Possible appearances at a couple of conventions but nothing confirmed. Done a couple of interviews. Blah blah blah. I have signed a wall of books (I’m not kidding about that either. It was a wall).

I’ll post the interviews up on a slow news week later in the year. Same with an expanded version of an article on dragons that appears in the latest Sci Fi Now. Order Of The Scales (if that’s the title it keeps) is up to 91k words and Eastercon looms large. I have a stinking cold coming on.

Oh, and I might print some T-shirts just for the hell of it. Adamantine Palace T-shirt anyone?

    Karina, Mark, Andrew:
    T-shirt requests noted. Not sure if this is going to pan out (they’re supposed to be a marketting ploy for Eastercon, which is rapidly approaching). If they do, I will hold a few. Likely they will come in XXL and Medium and that’s about it…
