Alcatraz Annotations + Updates
In this week’s Writing Excuses podcast episode, Dan, Mary, Howard, and I talk about brevity.
Since all the chapters of my abandoned novel MYTHWALKER have now been uploaded, it’s time to start dishing out something else for your weekly bonus content. So my assistant has put up the first annotation for ALCATRAZ VERSUS THE EVIL LIBRARIANS. This one talks about the process of coming up with the title for the book, with the various (and often ridiculously long) options that were considered.
If you’re not familiar with my book annotations, think of them as the director’s commentary on a special edition DVD. On your second read-through of a book, you may be interested to hear what I have to say about each chapter. Currently I have completed annotations for ELANTRIS, the Mistborn trilogy, and WARBREAKER. Check them all out. (Spoilers from later in the book than the current chapter are hidden.)
My assistant also uploaded another Twitter posts archive.
The leatherbound Wheel of Time charity auction for Worldbuilders is currently at $1,725.00. Wow!
I believe there are still slots available for the Magic the Gathering: Dark Ascension prerelease in West Valley this Friday. They don’t count a slot as filled until you prepay, so give them a call.
