In which I am made of Squee. [Apr. 16th, 2007|04:34 pm]

[Current Mood |bouncySquee!!!!]

On my computer, right now, is a copy of The Orphan's Tales.

The rest of The Orphan's Tales. Not the already-published, amazing novel to which I have linked. The as-yet-unpublished remainder of the story, due out in October.

I am indeed made of squee.

How did I get so lucky? As a submitting artist for the art show that will accompany the release of the book, I will, it follows logically, create something much more in line with the themes of the book if I have actually read it. And yet when I volunteered it honestly did not occur to me that it would mean I'd get to read it well in advance of the publishing date.

In deference to Cat, I will not discuss plot in this space. I will, however, gloat. Expect more gloating in the future.

Ok. I'll squee about the fact that I have, at home, copies of the new Kushiel's Legacy book, *AND* the new John Scalzi book. Neither of which is out for at least a month.

I'm so made of squee about those books. :)

Those are indeed good reasons for squee.

I think that the only thing to say in this circumstance is:

"You evil wench."

You are so lucky! Argh!

My wife is twitching waiting for the second book to come out. When I told her October, she practically had a seizure.

It feels me with glee to know that part of it was written in my living room. And I am just savoring the very existence of the book before I dive into it.

If she's on the list, it should be in her in-box.

You know, in my brain-addled excitement of my original idea, dealing with the first work, I also never thought we'd get the whole book to work with.

It makes the knitting project a wee bit more intimidating. *blush*
BUT..also exciting! I hope what I make does not suck!

I shall, but I must admit that I am intimidated by the task of producing art that lives up to the book!

Oh, you meanie!

I tried to pre-order it with an Amazon.co.uk gift certificate I got for my birthday. No pre-orders in the UK yet. That sucks!

But then again, I'll prolly just buy it through Amazon.de, and save the GC for a computer game (which would be in German if I bought it though A.de.) Ah, the complicated life I lead...
