The heat wave has begun. The temperature reached 93 in my backyard yesterday and the humidity was up there as well. Today and tomorrow are supposed to be even hotter. I won’t lie, I handle heat poorly. I’d much prefer a nice cool day. Not that the weather takes requests, more’s the pity.
Given the miserable weather, I only left the house to get the mail and water my flowers. On the plus side, I wrote 6 more pages and finished the rough draft of Book 5 in the Portal Wars Saga. The final word count was 71,002 though that will change during edits. This book turned out well. At least I think so.
No updates today. I’m currently waiting for proofs of my paperbacks to ship.
I don’t know how many of you use or visit Kickstarter, but I’m sure most of you know Brandon Sanderson. He’s currently got a Kickstarter going for a leather bound edition of the Way of Kings, I think. It’s the tenth anniversary. The important thing is, he’s up to $4,500,000. Yes, you read that right. Four and a half million dollars from 15,000 supporters. That is a metric shit ton of money for a leather bound book and some swag. It’s certainly enough to tempt me to give Kickstart a try myself. Not that I imagine I’d ever have that kind of success.
Anyway, I thought I’d share in case any of you were interested in supporting his campaign.
I’ll end as always with a preorder update. We’re up to 480 preorders on The Great Northern War. We’re also picking up a few preorders on the two later books, but I won’t start covering them until we finish with the second. Thanks everyone.
Talk to you tomorrow.
