news, posts, ets ceteras, I HAVE A TITLE

I’m drowning in revisions right now (due Monday; I’m almost done; I just need my brain to keep working a few days more), but I’m surfacing long enough to share a few things.

First: YOU GUYS YOU GUYS YOU GUYS I FINALLY HAVE A TITLE. The sequel to A Natural History of Dragons will be called The Tropic of Serpents.

(Now I just need to go put that phrase in the book somewhere.)

Next, story sale! To the charity anthology Neverland’s Library, which will be funded through Kickstarter, and 50% of whose profits will go to First Book. The story in question is “Centuries of Kings,” based on several Chinese and Japanese folktales.

Finally, I have a couple of posts up in different places, that I hadn’t yet linked here. One is over at Darkeva’s blog, talking about how I developed the habit of choosing music for a story while working on the original draft of Lies and Prophecy. The other is my biweekly post at BVC, talking about how folklore adds another later to the world around you.

Time for me to go work some more on revising The Tropic of Serpents. (I am going to be using the title incessantly for a little while, now that I have it to use.)

      I sometimes wish I could just be like a classical music composer, and call things “Victoriain’t Fantasy Novel #2 in West African Major.”

        Just this week I had a conversation with my aunt the painter about how she can call something, “Untitled #47” if she feels like it, but for some reason writers are expected to be verbal.

      Thanks! I was aiming for something that would give a hint of the region. (And unfortunately, “swamp” is just a terminally unattractive word.)

    The Tropic of Serpents.

    That just has to be on a map… a lovely hand drawn, lettered, illuminated map, and its rolled up in a proper leather carrying tube.

    Or a really lethal drink in a very seedy bar.

    And he that sat upon him was called faithful and true

    YAY TITLE!!!

    I sent the Darkeva link along to Schwa. You know that the “shiny holographic cover” in the title is sort of my fault, right?

    • Marie Brennan

      and in righteousness he doth judge and make war

      Hee! I hope he is amused at what he wrought.

      And yes, I know you’re partially responsible, though I don’t recall what the shiny holographic cover was on.

    For some reason, I have this suspicion that old!Isabella is your kind of lady. πŸ˜‰
