Part of me is still amazed that an actual book has been produced. Not that I’ve cracked the NY Times best sellers list, but I’m excited to get more material out. Please join me in thanking the S4 team for all their help in 2018 (and 2019 in advance). I simply couldn’t make any of this work without them. Thank you for joining in on the fun.
I’m very excited about the possibilities of 2019. The follow-up book to Orchids Ablaze is on the boards; call the plot at 80% at this point. I hesitate to go higher because the characters seem to have their own ideas on how things need to progress. They like to wait until the last minute to inform me, of course, almost always after I’m past plotting and well into writing. It will take some time to translate the plot from board to book, so I have a few Jagged Earth short pieces, more “slice of life” or brief origin stories than anything, out to my early readers and the S4 team. I’ll put the best of them out on the site (and work on the rest) while I’m writing on the “big book”. I’m also planning to put more Story World lore and behind the scenes pieces on the site.
Thank you very kindly
Thank you for dropping by to visit E3ink and The Jagged Earth! Remember that the first round of polls will end on 7Jan and consider letting us know what is on your mind. If you missed them, don’t worry. They’ll come back around, expanded and refined. We want you to be part of shaping what E3ink delivers. We appreciate everyone that has taken the time to visit.
On a personal note
I sincerely hope that everyone was/will be able to spend time with their families and friends during the celebratory season. It may be the family you were born into. It may be the family you chose or one that chose you. Your celebration may have been Hanukkah or Christmas or the New Year or something else entirely. It doesn’t matter which is yours. You may have just invented one! Regardless, I know I would not be writing this, or anything, without the support of family and friends and friends that are family. I plan to enjoy 2019 with them, and with you.
