The Day – 9-11-20
The news is always so depressing on 9/11 I tried to watch it as little as possible. Though to be fair, it’s been pretty depressing every day lately. As a small reward for myself, I fixed the first apple pie of the year. It turned out really good. I make it, I think the recipe called it Swedish Style. Basically you put your apples slices along with sugar and cinnamon in the bottom of the pie tin then cover it with a sugar cookie batter and bake until golden brown. The apples and the batter all cook together into a delicious, soft and crunchy whole. It’s also so much easier than making traditional pie crust, which I suck at.
That, along with lunch and an episode of Car Masters, took up my whole morning. I finally made it to my writing desk about 1:30 and managed 3 pages. Finding the end of this book is killing me, but I think I’ve finally got a bead on it.
- I went through the final typo check on The Chamber of Eternity. All I need now is the cover and it will be ready to go up for preorder.
- Tantor sent me samples from two female narrators to pick from for Escape from the Dragon Czar. They were both really good and choosing wasn’t easy. I think the end result will be really good.
- Also on the audio front. The narrator for The Hidden Tower is nearly done. Hopefully I can get that book up for sale by the end of next week. For all my audio fans out there, thanks very much for your patience.
We’ll end with a preorder update. The Portal Thieves is up to 965. Thanks very much everyone for your support.
Talk to you tomorrow
