Yet another quick note

While I don't have a pub date for the first HOUSE WAR book yet (and I don't have a title either), I did find out today that Jody Lee is already working on the cover. Happy now :)

This is wonderful news. I've been looking forward to more of this story since I finished the last one.

And your work should always have a Jody Lee cover, in my opinion. It was her lovely cover for The Broken Crown that made me pick it up in the first place! (Well, that and my general love for Big Fat Books.

Always you have to trick us by saying "one book" and having it be 5 (*whispers* thanks). Yay for Jody Lee cover art.

I adore her covers. Lucky you, to have Jody Lee art for *almost* all your books!

I recently saw that this book was coming out and ended up re-reading Hunter's Death (probably my favorite of your works, though that might also be because it's one of the first two I read). Really looking forward to reading more of Jewel's story.

Re-reading it, I did wonder, as always, is there something outside of the Sun Sword sextet and Hunter's duology set in this universe? It feels like there's so much back story with Kallandras and Evayne that it seems like there's another book (or two or three) out there, but I've yet to find it. If not, are you ever planning to dedicate a full novel to their histories? (Or Meralonne's?)

At this moment in time, no -- although Evayne's very early backstory is a possibility, but that wouldn't take you to Evayne and Kallandras. I find backstory much harder to write, because there are absolute boundaries involved, and in general, while I know where I want the story to go, I like the room in which to veer sharply if that's what the characters dictate. I've written a bunch of novelettes/novellas set in the same universe, including one long one set after Hunter's Death, and there is some backstory in those.

I hadn't intended to write HOUSE WAR as backstory -- but the book started with Rath's viewpoint, and the braided structure I had intended to use didn't work well when one of the PoV characters was dead.
