Service Interruptions

May 1st, 2010

Yeah, The Heroes is finished!  Again.  Kind of.  I’ve revised the last part now and it’s been sent off to my editor, so it is considered DELIVERED.  Pay day!  Time to celebrate!  Crack the special bottle!  And then start on the heavy revision of the first part, which always needs the most work.  Sigh.

In other news, our long-awaited building project is about to begin!  Yes indeed, the contractors arrive the week after next to rip our house apart with extreme prejudice, so next week we move out and into a rented house.  One with actual hot water and stuff!  The downside is that I may have some patchy internet for some time, which may mean reduced posting and failure to respond to email, though, hey, I’ve been failing to do that effectively for quite a while now…

I leave you with an interview conducted by Justin at Fantasy  Enjoy.

    I don’t know, Your Holiness, do you think my comment has enough merit to earn the prize?

    And, in all seriousness, you should certainly pay a visit to the United States. (East Coast? Well . . . Maybe even southeastern Michigan, or somewhere thereabouts. . . . Eh? Eh? I saw Pat Rothfuss today, and a certain Baldwin Public Library in Birmingham, MI was more than accommodating, or so Rothfuss said. Just a suggestion. One option of thousands . . .)

    Hi Joe,

    Great news on ‘The Heroes’ – and good luck with the building contractors – hopefully all will go smoothly and your stress and frustration will be kept to a minimum. (But then, if Glokta was born out of a bad personal experience – perhaps you getting some cowboy traders in won’t be a bad thing!)

  • Jeremy says:

    You mentioned in the interview there are characters from The First Law in The Heroes. If I may be so bold as to ask: Who?

  • Jon says:

    I like the guy in the comments that questions your dedication because you’re a gamer. There’s always one.

  • ChrisE says:

    Great news! Really looking forward to The Heroes, I can hardly wait. I also second the proposal that you visit the States.

    I’d love to read the interview but the Chinese government doesn’t seem to like the link.

  • Chris Upton says:

    Jon-Yeah! Chain him to that desk!
    Kind of reminds me of that old story about Robert E Howard.
    When writing Conan he was convinced there was a man with an axe standing behind him, and if he stopped writing before the story was finished he’d be deader than a priest of Set!
    Why cant modern writers have that sort of dedication nowadays?
    Also, Terry Goodkind once claimed he wrote the last seventy pages of one of sot books in one sitting. Actually that explains a lot about his writing.

    We, however, can’t crack open the champagne until we can actuallly buy the bloody thing!

  • Khan says:

  • Skout says:

    Justin: Any words of encouragement for aspiring fantasy writers?

    Joe: And contribute to my own extinction? Never.

    Classic, Joe. You’re still my hero.

  • DrGonzo says:

    Great news. Just started with the trilogy two weeks ago. Great stuff. I really lost interest in fantasy because the plot is often so used up. GRRM and your stuff really make a diffenrence. Thanks!

    Bought the english one as the german books look really a bit hmmm lets say crappy.

    Nice to hear that there will be more from you.
