First off, I did a podcast interview with Baen for the release of Monster Hunter Nemesis. I talked about how I write, why I do what I do, and upcoming goodies. http://www.baen.com/podcast/podcast.asp
Also, for those of you who aren’t on Audible, they’ve been serializing Hard Magic on the Baen Podcast, so you can go back and listen to it. If you haven’t, you should, because it is awesome. 🙂
I’m going to be the author Guest of Honor at OsFest in Omaha this weekend. http://www.osfes.org/larry-correia-author-guest-of-honor/ So if you are in Nebraska swing by and say hi.
I have read all of the short stories for the Baen Fantasy contest. Holy moly. There were a ton of good ones. I’ll be going over them with the Baen editorial staff and discussing each of our picks so we can notify the winner. All I can say is if you didn’t win, don’t feel bad, because the competition was stiff. We had over 500 entries, and they narrowed that down to 15 finalists, of which all of them were solid. All of the ones I read were enjoyable and every one of the writers showed enough skill and creativity that I’m sure we’ll all be reading them again in the future.
Once all of the judges are done arguing over it, the winners will be contacted. I’ll make the official announcement at GenCon.
I’ve been getting lots of emails with people asking me what I’m working on now. I’m currently 90k words into a fantasy novel (I think this one will end up at around 135k). I’ve been calling this one my Epic Fantasy, but after explaining the plot to some critics and other authors, it might actually be considered Heroic Fantasy, because I have no idea what the “rules” are, and as you know I don’t do very well coloring in the lines.
Either way I’m really pleased with how it is coming out, and I think you guys will like it. I didn’t get much done on it over the last month because I can’t write while on book tour. When I do have small bits of downtime during a tour, I usually find myself in a stupor on a hotel bed watching NCIS or something.
I have no idea on release date yet. It is also through Baen.
