It was hard to get started with my latest WIP (the sequel to my series The Labors of Ki'shto'ba Huge-Head), but toward the end I set a deadline and that seemed to help.

The sixth volume left a lot of loose threads, which the sequel, entitled The Buried Ship at the End of the World, ties up. The book is almost finished - just being polished.
Note: The book is now published! (3/7/16)(less)

It's time for an update on the book I'm currently working on: Children of the Music. The title of this post is the epigraph for the book -- a traditional statement from the Siritoch culture. The book itself is divided into two halves, the first being "The Reed's Tune" and the second "The New Song." You can discover how those phrases apply to the story when you read it.
