Well, I finally finished the markup. So now I’m starting revisions on WAR OF MAGIC for real.
Starting with a read-through during which I’ll fix all the small- to medium-sized things I can. Places where readers wanted more emotion attached to a scene or a better grounding either in the settings or the background from the previous books. Stuff like that.
There may be a few bigger, structural changes. Those will come in a second pass, after I have a little more time to think about them. And the read-through will help with that.
In the meantime, just for fun, here are my last few picks on the FellowshipOfFun A to Z favorite fantasy characters game.
- I is for Ivan Vorpatril. All right, that one’s cheating just a little, since Ivan is from Lois McMaster Bujold’s Vorkosigan saga, which is science fiction. But I’m sticking with it anyway.
- J is for Jack Frost from “Rise of the Guardians.” J was difficult, though I was tempted to go with Jathan from my own DAUGHTER OF THE DISGRACED KING.
- K is for Katsa from Kristin Cashore’s GRACELING.
- L takes us back to LORD OF THE RINGS and can only be Legolas. (In this case I definitely mean the movie version.)
