Me! On the internet! Talking about stuff!

All this week and next*, we’re taking over Justin Landon’s blog over at Staffer’s Book Review, one author per day, to talk about our experiences of writing our second books and give you an exclusive sneak peek at these stories.

Mark Lawrence kicked off the event yesterday, with a post about Scary Shit, and a brilliant excerpt from King of Thorns. Today it’s Kameron Hurley, of God’s War fame, telling us Don’t Lose Your Edge and treating us to the first chapter of Rapture. And tomorrow, it’s some English upstart called Elspeth Cooper . . .

What a difference a year makes

Calendar pagesIt’s hard to believe a year (and a bit) has passed since I saw finished copies of Songs of the Earth – where has the time gone?

Well, if you really want to know, it’s gone here:

– over 300,000 words of fiction

– over 2500 tweets

– 1538 miles travelled

– over 400 bookmarks given away

– 387 books signed

– 28 fanmails received and responded to personally

– 23 blog posts (I know, I know, I need to blog more regularly)

– several many new friends made (you know who you are)

– 1 convention attended

– 0 nervous breakdowns, divorces or psychotic episodes (but it was a close run thing)

Whew.
