So it’s my birthday today. While it did involve work as usual (time and spreadsheets wait for no woman), it also involved a card from my coworkers, cakes at work, presents from my family, a nice dinner out with steak and wine, and a generally good day.
It’s also just over a week now since The Masked City came out in the US. I hope that people are enjoying it! (And if you really want to give me a birthday present, and you enjoyed reading it, then do leave a good review on amazon or wherever – it’s the sort of thing that makes authors happy…)
I need to remember to check the Lush shop soon. They should be getting in their Halloween and/or Christmas specials any day now. I’m a Lush addict – well, some of their products, at least – and I wouldn’t want to miss any good new stuff.
Happy birthday! I won the Tor contest and am thoroughly enjoying The Invisible Library–as is my daughter, Zari (age nine and an extremely voracious reader).
I found your site via a Google search and found it interesting–and a bit obvious–that you had an RPG background with Steve Jackson Games. I was thinking of
stealingadapting some ideas from TIL for my game, but knowing that there is some direct material there certainly caught my eye.
Keep up the great work, and thanks!
Thank you very much! I’m delighted that you (and your daughter) are enjoying The Invisible Library.
I totally admit to using things from my rpg-writing background in my current writing. Everything comes in useful. If you do borrow anything from TIL for your own game, then I will be proud to have been a source of inspiration for it. 😉
Thank you for the encouragement!
