Hey, I'm a fantastic woman...?

I have been beta reading Book 2 of Karen Miller's Godspeaker trilogy. [The first book was Empress of Mijak - it is already out in Australia - and this second one is called The Riven Kingdom.]

Unfortunately the wretched woman only gave me two thirds of The Riven Kingdom and I am left biting my nails waiting for the third segment. Talk about torture. I am so involved with the characters I just don't want to wait. Beta reading? Forget it. I just want to know how it is all going to turn out... It's just as well for Karen that she lives in Sydney and I'm in Kuala Lumpur.

Anyway, maybe to placate my ire at being left dangling, the lovely Karen has said some rather nice things, and put up an interview she did with me, on her blog. You can find it through her website here

Better still, she is also going to be interviewing some other fabulous writers, such as Rachel Caine, in the future. So, if you want to know more about me, hop over there. And if you want to be kept on the edge of your seat, try reading her Godspeaker trilogy.

Yes, you are.

Moreover, you're a Galaxy bookshop bestseller this week, so wheeeee! And woot!

And now I must return to Chapter 29.

Hey, that's nice to see.

Yes, you get back to work - I want it! Now!

I have been, I have been! 2 more chapters this weekend, nearly all brand new stuff! Lord, this part 3 rewrite is making me sweat!

You'll have it next week.

Yes, you are. :)

But what karen didn't perhaps make clear (although it comes through in your answers) is that you're wonderfully good company and very natural to get along with - your magnificence doesn't make you inaccessible (or stop you mopping floors).

Just been mopping floors today, when I would rather have been writing. Think I might give up on the floors. In future shall hand visitors a vacuum cleaner when they arrive at the door, so they can vacuum a path through the dust to a chair...
