Scholes antoi noin kuukausi sitten päivityksen Requiemin
Howdy folks. Thought I'd pop back in and let you know that I'm finally back to work on Requiem. The work stoppages have been tough but the health issues have been resolved and I seem to be back and better than ever. I'm 43,000 words in Requiem -- working on Chapter 9 now -- and anticipate having the book wrapped by Thanksgiving. Ideally, it'll be revised and over to Tor by January. Then, I'll take a little break and jump into Hymn, the last volume.
I'm grateful for all of the fans and readers who've kept cheerleading me from the sidelines through some of the tougher months in my life. All the notes by email and on Facebook are great encouragements. I'd hoped to have Requiem coming out around now back before the wheels came off. Thanks for being so patient. The good news is that I think I'll have the entire series wrapped by the end of 2012 -- just six years after starting it and just three years after the first book came out. Not too shabby.
EDIT: Grasping for the Wind -blogi julkisti viime viikolla uuden haastattelun
. Requiemin kirjoittaminen on edennyt aiemman tiedotteen jälkeen:
But I’m 65k into Requiem. Most of these come in around 145k. It’ll go fast once I’m fully operational…2k per day…we’re talking a few months.
Scholes vastaa kysymykseen tulevaisuudensuunnitelmistaan:
What projects are you working on for the future that we can look forward to?
KS: I think I’m going to take a break after this one and write some stand alone pieces that might start new series. I also have some series in mind in the Psalms of Isaak universe as well as some more traditional fantasy…and mainstream, too. I have a lot of ideas.
Mainitaan vielä lopuksi samaa aihetta käsittelevä kirjoitus
syyskuulta. Lainaus tekstin alusta:
So I’m solidly back to work again on the Psalms of Isaak after a long stretch away. I finished volume three, Antiphon (now available in mass market paperback for your reading pleasure) back in August 2009, just shortly after my daughters were born. I revised and copyedited large portions of that novel with either Lizzy or Rae sleeping in one arm as I read and hunted and pecked keys one-handed.
After that, there was a lot of silence. My Health Stuff combined with the financial impact of having twins and not writing had me cutting back on most appearances and I experienced one of the toughest writer’s blocks I’ve ever faced.
