Happy Monday! It's already the 22nd. I feel like I turned around, and the month is nearly over. And there's still so much I need to do, in the rest of the month and the rest of the year. I'm not worried-- I can do the work. It just seems the whole summer was a blur.
But in other news: Sheila Gilbert won the Hugo for Best Editor Long Form! This thrills me to no end. Needless to say I think it's well deserved, especially considering that the award represents her work for books released in 2015, which includes The Thorn of Dentonhill and A Murder of Mages. So, of course I'm proud just at the idea that my work helped contributed to her win.
In other news, I found this lovely video review of several SFF books, but her highlight is A Murder of Mages. Which is pretty cool.
Finally, Powder & Page gives The Alchemy of Chaos a four-star review. "Mr. Maresca has provided his readers with another dashing adventure in Maradaine and it was GREAT." This sort of thing always makes me happy. It's been a good weekend.
Also from the Powder & Page review: "I’m waiting for the characters to overlap, even if it’s just a tiny, insignificant interaction. I’m going to shriek and wave the book about in a dangerous looking manner and find someone to fangirl about it to if that moment ever comes."
That reminds me: I need to finish the final draft of The Imposters of Aventil. I do have a Hugo-winning editor to answer to, after all.
Back to the word mines.
