I've just finished the proof edits on Deep Roots, so we should be on track for July publication. The release date is currently set to July 9th.  This is more appropriate than Winter Tide's April release date, since the story takes place during a muggy New York June. These are very seasonal books. I kind of wanted to have the first one come out in time for its titular holiday, but apparently December releases lose more sales to people not buying for themselves than they gain from holiday gift purchases.* The Science of Publishing!

Things that can be found in this book:
  • The looming gentrification of Innsmouth
  • Other-dimensional vistas of cosmic wonder and fear, and their nasty side effects
  • Awkward relatives
  • Terrifying relatives
  • The looming threat of human extinction
  • Aliens worried about the looming threat of human extinction, and eager to do something about it
  • Bagels and lox
I've started on the first couple of chapters of Book 3, but don't yet have a contract. While I wait, I've been playing around with "What if the ancient language that drives men mad... was an area of academic study like any other?" If the woes of the world don't completely distract me, it'll be a novelette draft by the time I have official deadlines again.


*Winter Tide does, in fact, make a great Winter Tide gift--and it's also appropriate for other portions of the Great North American Festival to Combat SAD.

Bagels and lox

I am pretty much permanently up for bagels and lox. Including right now, which is really inconvenient, since I have only the bagel.

While I wait, I've been playing around with "What if the ancient language that drives men mad... was an area of academic study like any other?"

That sounds delightful. I look forward.

One of these days I actually have to try bagels and lox. Especially since I live a couple blocks from the based real bagels place in the DC area. But I've never tried lox because it's so expensive and I can just get cream cheese.... On the gripping hand, I will be in Brooklyn for New Year's....
