The Collapsing Empire: Done!
Finished literally ten minutes ago. So there’s that one more done.
I’ll have more to say about it sometime soon, but I wrote 7,500 words in the last 24 hours and my brain is scrambled and I still have to get ready for NYCC, to which I am traveling tomorrow. But I will say this now:
- It’s good!
- It has one of my favorite characters I’ve ever written, named Kiva Lagos. She swears a lot.
- It’s got explosions and assassinations and political intrigue and really big spaceships and even a little bit of sex because I thought that would be fun. Basically it brings the “opera” to space opera.
- Even though my brain is currently the consistency of fried ricotta, I’m already thinking about book two in the series, which I think I will call — are you ready, this is an exclusive! — The Last Emperox.
- (Yes, “emperox.” I can make up words. I’m a science fiction author, damn it.)
I think you’re gonna like this one. I certainly enjoyed writing it.
More about it when I’ve stuffed my brain back into my head.
Until then: Yay! I guess I can still write novels!
