Steven Brust: “A masterful storyteller of contagious glee and self-deprecating badassery” —Skyler White

A Brief Update from Texas

| 8 Comments

I’m in Texas until the end of the month. Skyler and I hope to finish up a draft of the next Incrementalists book. I’ve also gotten the line-edit on Hawk from TNH and should be doing a revision over the next week or so.  I’ve a start on Vallista, and might get a bit more done on that while I’m here.  Finally, there’s the Seekrit Project, that I expect to get a bit more done on pretty soon.

  1. Ooooo! Seeeeeeeekrits! It’s funny that the quote that came up is, “Ambiguity is our most valuable thingie.” (Reed Walker)

    Best of luck on the collaboration, not that the two of you will need it. (:

  2. Glad to hear. Busy Steve makes for happy readers!

  3. I hope you are enjoying the Olympics

  4. I’m really glad; it sounds as if everything is coming together in ‘The Perfect Storm’ edition of your life. Apart from the drowning bit, obviously.

    And I caught a double reference in the BBC Musketeers series, where one of the Musketeers who invites people to play cards with him has cards up his sleeve; naturally I really do not believe that you do have physical cards up your sleeve, when you are playing poker, but I can still remember the moment when it became obvious to me, that, as a writer, you have so many cards up your sleeves that it’s probably a miracle if you manage to stand up…

    Yeah, periodically my editor makes me shake my arms.

  6. This explains why we our high was 69 two days ago and 36 today. We let you Minnesotans come in, and you bring winter with you, every time.

  7. Since you said the magic word (Hawk) in your post, I figured that this was as good a place as any to share what I recently found on Amazon.com….

    Hawk (Vlad) Hardcover – October 7, 2014

    Series: Vlad (Book 14)
    Hardcover: 368 pages
    Publisher: Tor Books; First Edition edition (October 7, 2014)

    No cover image, of course, but still a beacon of light saying that the wait might be finally coming to a close (and the wait for Vallista will then begin).

  8. Ah, so it’s been moved from September to October. That’s not bad. Thanks, Steve
