Family comes first. The peanuts gallery can just reread all your books a couple more times...

that all being said.
you mention so many books in there that are planned for "somewhere into the future"
may i ask you what you are currently working on in the near future? (cauldron of ghost needs to be finished if it isn't, beyond that no one seems to know what is really next in the pipeline)


Currently working on Cauldron. I've also got about 12,000 words on the next Safehold (working title Hell's Foundations Quiver), which will undoubtedly be followed by the sequel to either Freedom from the Shadows or A Rising Thunder. We also have the next Honorverse companion in the works; Tim Zahn, Tom Pope, and I will be looking at the sequel to Call to Duty; and Joelle Presby and I are probably about 66% through with the third Multiverse book. Oh, and Baen and I are about to contract for a 5-volume fantasy series which will take the war between Norfressa and Kontovar to a conclusions.

Sides that, nothing much. :)

Oh, let's not get into the question of which of them gets to have sex with the wife/husband (note some of the authors I want to be cloned are female). :twisted:


Nope. The real problem is that every damn clone would immediately start producing spinoff series of his own!! ;)

You know. i honestly can't tell you if i'm more excited by the idea of the next honor/1oth fleet book or i'm more excited about finally getting down to what promises to be a major fantasy work. to see Wencit and the probable son of our bloody handed friend get on with major magical mayham just has such interesting promise

You say that like it would be a bad thing. :lol: The only downside I see is that I might have to substantially increase my book buying budget. But I'm pretty sure that if I look behind the couch cushions and break open my piggy bank I can find the money. ;)

How can those spin-off series be a problem?
As long as 2 or 3 of them are in Multiverse, of course!
:D :lol: :mrgreen:

May Sharon's surgery be successfully completed this time!

The obvious answer is to clone yourself about a half a dozen times! :lol:

But on a more serious note, sorry to hear your wife has to have another surgery. Hope it goes well.

My thoughts are with you and Sharon RFC. Hope the surgery goes well and she has a good recovery.
