...could this snippet potentially include Eloise and/or Theisman and/or Higgins and/or Khumalo and/or Matsuko?

Unfortunately, even if those eyes could move my flinty little authorial heart [made of stone, I tell you, stone!], I'm still working on HFQ. It was supposed to be handed in at the end of April, but I got started two months late (other projects got hung up in the queue) and Sharon's health has been a major concern this year, which has slowed me down still further. Then there's the minor fact that we got signed up for eight conventions this year somehow . . . and just added Dragon Con to the mix at the urgent request of various people (including my publisher). By my estimate I am now within 2-3 days done with the novel, but that time won't include the final edit, nor will it include putting together the glossary and index entries and getting the maps done. I should be completely finished by the end of the month, at which time I will be considering when to start snippeting that book in Safehold.

Sorry, guys, but I'm only human. :cry:

I hope Sharons feeling better now, and her healths improved.


As to the book, well, at least you're almost finished. We're that much closer to our next fix. :D

As for the cons, I keep suggesting you for one down here, but they keep ignoring me. :( Otherwise I woudl be doing my best to add another one to that list.... :twisted: :lol:

A prayer for Sharon's health, couldn't hurt. For the non religious send good vibes, couldn't hurt either.

I thank RFC/MWW so much for the update on HFQ. :D It gives me hope for snippets until the book itself is available.
