Hi everyone, Mod R here, happy Friday!
Today, I serve as Herald for House Andrews, who send apologies that they cannot be here to entertain you, but they are knee-deep in rewrites. The first beta and specialist feedback for Magic Claims landed last night, you see.
I love this period in a book’s life the most, which is of course very easy to say since I don’t actually have to figure out any of the edits and rewrites. I just get to talk to a load of very interesting people from all walks of life; see how their brains and emotional responses work, which insights and interpretations they get from the book; and then witness House Andrews work their magic and provide solutions in real time to any issues uncovered. And all from the comfort of my own laptop screen, like a lazy drone feasting on everyone’s hard work honey. This, my friends, is the life.
I suppose technically I am busy too, but it’s the kind of busy that energises you the more you accomplish, because it’s just so gosh-darned exciting. And to keep with the very tortured by now beehive metaphor, you will all get to see the results, which are the bee’s knees! June is so near.
I also promised I will remind everyone who registered that there is a virtual event tomorrow, Saturday, April 22nd at 4 pm ET with Jeaniene Frost, Ilona and Gordon, organised by Ashland Library, to celebrate the release of BOTH FEET IN THE GRAVE. If you did not get a space, but would still like to catch up with the authors, the program will be available on the Ashland Library’s YouTube Channel. If you would like to receive the video link directly, please fill out this form and Ashland will email you as soon as it’s ready to watch.
If you would like a signed book by one of the authors (meaning with a bookplate attached to the first page), you can order them through the event page at Aesop’s Fables, the independent bookstore partner of the chat. Personalization is not possible unfortunately, as the bookplates are sent ahead of time, but here is everyone’s chance to get signed copies for their collections! For any inquires linked to orders, please contact Aesop’s Fable directly.
