... right now it would be time. Time time wonderful time - and the energy to exploit it.
As we can all see, it has been nearly a month since my last post which reflects just how manic life is right now. Yet, with a little gentle prodding from an appropriate quarter, here I am at last. Progress on books 2 & 3 is steadily frenetic or frenetically steady or are these oxymoron. The aim is (Lord willing) to have Book 2 - called Lamplighter - out May next year, that being 2007, and for Book 3 - of a name I shall not at this time disclose - a year later.
Thank you to those who have taken the time to comment here, or email me. Such encouragement - constructive or enthusiastic - is sheer gold and makes this whole writing thing a doubled delight.
(Apologies to Alex for my absence from Redifinition camps - I've taken a hiastus from youth group leading to live other lives.)

It has been asked if there will be other series after this'un - I sure hope so. Depends on the success of MBT I suppose, but if it were up to me, most certainly. The Half-continent was and is still being made for many many many stories to happen in. It was made first for the stories to come second. Which leads me to a misconception I have encountered regarding "Foundling": that some think I spent 13 years on that one story, which bain't the case. 13 years and counting for the world itself (think of it as researching my subject matter, only I invent as I research. Yeah?) & about 18 months for the 'Foundling' story, from go to whoa, using the setting of the Half-continent that I have been constructing.
Today for breakfast I ate All-Bran [TM] with Milo [TM] liberally sprinkled on top. Mmm.
