Sunday morning notes

I made Chats an apple pie yesterday (her fave). There's something about fall and pies.

There's a podcast interview of me at the Adventures in Scifi Publishing site. I did it last week when I had my cold, so I had a bad case of medicine head. In fact, when we were originally supposed to do the interview Tuesday I was in bed. I heard the phone ring and reacted like Prahka Lasa in All of Me, mumbling brrrrring!, brrrrring! just listening to the phone trill, without any synapses connecting to remind me that the call was, in fact, the interview.

Rectified it Wednesday, but I was still kind of out of it. Shaun was cool, though.

Oh, the first review of Dragon Strike appeared, and it's by (natch!) Harriet. She's somehow picked up on this meme that Strike is the last Age of Fire book. I know when I first outlined the series, it was three little books and one fat ol' doorstop to conclude it with a bang, but the publisher had me break up the final book into multiple volumes. Anyway, somehow the "this is the last one" got into the air on the internet and it keeps being repeated.

I've signed a contract for books five and six and been paid an advance and everything. Cross my heart! I know the series doesn't sell like Paolini or even Novik but it's not a flop.

Age of Fire Series
I've read Paolini and Novik as well and to tell the truth I think Age of Fire is better. Mostly because it's actually about the dragons and from their point of view. And I love the world you've created for them and the overall feel of the books. It's honestly one of my favorite series. I love it to death and it deserves much more recognition and praise than it's received.
