Before I forgot, I wanted to mention to people that you can snag some free electronic books over at the slick Tor.com website. You’ll have to register at the site, which is painless, then you can download Free e-books from Will Shetterly and Emma Bull.
I’m most excited about reading Emma Bull’s War for the Oaks, mostly because many people have pointed to it as a classic of urban fantasy, my preferred genre of late, and also because it was written in ’87, way before the big trend of books like that in that sub-genre. I read the opening and I’m already hooked. The Shetterly book looks a bit less exciting, at first glance, but I’ll definitely give it a try as well.
Of course, I’m still reading a couple other novels as well, and I need to finish those at some point too. Sheesh — too much good reading material.
And in other good news, accompanied by my young helper Drew, who was busily pulling out Thomas stickers and working with his train tracks while I typed, I finished up my much-needed timeline for my novel. Sweet. I added a lot of that timeline stuff to my book, along with my updated outline, and I’m looking forward to diving into the drafting tonight, after everyone else in the fam has gone to bed… I guess that rune reading yesterday did the trick! Thanks, Aimee!
I’m hoping to hit 20k by the end of the day tomorrow, then do a pile of caffeine-induced drafting on Saturday morning at the bagel place up the road! I’m a man with a plan. At least for now.
