I have to take yet another opportunity to plug my friend John’s books.
EDIT: Linking to the video instead of embedding it.
(I threw on the titles.)
As laid out in the video, you can find the books over at Wet Machine, John’s site. If you can, do him a favor and pay for them. They really are worth it, and if you knew John, you’d know your money was going to a great place.
As for my own book, I just formally submitted it to a publisher after it became clear that the editor who’d promised he’d read it had flaked out. Fixed some of the early bits, and some of the early dialog, which was kind of stilted and was written a few months before I wrote the remaining, like, 90% of the book. Big improvement.
