Nice writerly things happening at the moment. Just had a long chat with my HarperCollins Voyager editor, which is always great. [I get literarily-deprived over here in Sabah sometimes, if you'll forgive the pun, so talking to someone in the business is always wonderful.] She has re-read Song of the Shiver Barrens, and is happy with all the last minute changes I made.
The copy edit for that same book has just been delivered to my door, and I am neck deep in that. [Have you any idea how humungous a 160,000 word book is when it is in A4 sheets, double-spaced courier font?? I had to move my workspace from the writing desk to the dining room table...]
And my agent has sent me a email saying how much she LOVES the synopsis/book proposal for The Random Rain Quartet. Yay!

Or, if you are a fantasy author/reader, something quite different...long live the imagination!
