NGD Tour starts today and K&U 3 gets priority
Because you’ve been waiting with baited breath, I just wanted to let you know that the No Good Deed Tour has officially begun, starting with an interview with Kelly over at TeamNerd. The month is packed with stuff, so be sure to check out the full schedule over at Illuminated Tours, and I’ll be posting direct links to the pieces as they happen, over here.
In related news, after several depressing weeks slogging through the edits for Another Night at the End of the World, it became painfully apparent that this was not, in fact, going to be the ‘final pass’ that I had hoped, which necessarily led to a very unfortunate domino-effect: If I want to do it right (and that’s really the only way I know of approaching things*) and reach for the very high hopes I have for the story, I can’t see it reaching publication until the Fall, which would push Kelly & Umber #3 out to Spring, and All Prophets #2 to next Fall, at best, and so on.
I am very sad and very frustrated that Another Night… is not where I wanted it to be**, but I have decided to put it back on the shelf for the time being. On the up-side, though, this means I will be taking on The Road To Hell (Kelly & Umber #3) starting immediately, which I’m very excited about! It’s been more than a year since I finished Hell Hath No Fury, and Kelly and Umber have some seriously unfinished business to take care of.
* The success of that approach is not necessarily a proven thing, by any means, but hey, I try.
** Or, perhaps more accurately, I am not where I need to be for it. The pages have more cross-outs, revisions, re-cross-outs, re-revisions and re-re-crossouts than actual text. It’s genuinely ridiculous.
