Posts Tagged ‘The Swans of War’

The input is beginning to flow in from my beta readers. Haven’t heard from all of them yet, but I’ve put “The Swans of War” on standby circle and have started to work on “Living in Interesting Times” again.

And, as always, it’s fascinating.

I know my topic pretty well (that’s why I’m writing about it) but it’s always a revelation to see how other people view what I’ve written. The points I may have missed. The things that are explained well for me ( because I already know about them) but are still for someone coming from a different type of experience. The parts where I’ve been typing so intensely  that I’ve missed some of the words in my head.

This is good for the quality of the books I’m putting out, but it’s also good for the bigger picture- as a reminder of how many points of view in the world and how many of us are different kinds of right.

Hope all’s right with you. Back to editing and rewriting.

Currently “Living in Interesting Times” is taking a vacation with my beta readers; and while it does, I’m back to working on “The Swans of War”, the sequel to my urban fantasy “The Lands That Lie Between”.

Over the weekend, I’d started looking for a good picture for the cover, and the search was taking more than a little time. I found pictures of swans that were

  • peaceful
  • beautiful
  • serene
  • loving
  • pretty much everything but war like

Now swans, as you may or may not know, are beautiful birds, but they are also big and aggressive. An angry swan can break a man’s arm with the swing of its wing; and, in my novel, these are Germanic swan shape shifters, who are martial barbarian nomads with heavy accents, anger management issues and impulse control problems.

A pretty swan meant for the front of a wedding invitation wouldn’t do.

So I had searched through page after page of “pretty but not the right” swans on Fotolia, Good Bye Tol Eressea, Hello Eldamara site where you can purchase the rights to photos and illustrations, and I’d just about given up..

and then I found it.

Tentatively, here’s the picture for the cover of the Swans of War

and I’m doing the happy writer- publisher dance.

Last November, the Forces of Darkness were thoroughly thwarted and the power remained in the hands Celtic Knotwork 007of the Seelie Court,

But Evil never sleeps.

Now, a princess is missing, illness fills the Seelie domain, dark figures behind the scenes seek to unseat the new rulers and take power for themselves, an enchanted race prepares for war,

And the Fate of their world and ours rests once more in the hands of a woman and her wisecracking cat…”

And I’m back to work on the Swans of War…

well the working draft of Living in Interesting Times has been edited and polished up, broken into chapters and sent on vacation with my wonderful beta readers

And now, while that manuscript is off at camp, it’s time to go back to the partially finished second book of my urban fantasy series that started with the Lands That Lie Between

It’s time for me to spend some quality time with the Swans of War…
