And I was going to blog about them earlier, but I had another guest post to write, and a book to finish revising. So I’m late getting these up, but late is better than not at all.
The first post about The Great War is up at Far Beyond Reality. Stefan Raets was kind enough to invite me to share some of what it’s like to write about character’s lives against a historical background.
The extra added bonus with this post is a chance to win copies of both Delia’s Shadow and A Barricade In Hell. Tor is providing copies of both books to one lucky winner.
Go read the post and enter to win books! You know you want to.
The second is A Special Needs in Strange Worlds guest column over at SF Signal. Writing characters with physical limitations is hard in any context. Adding a historical background ups the difficulty level. Getting it all right is harder still.
Both posts are much more interesting than my summaries make them sound, I promise. It’s late and I’m tired, and a small cat named Morgan is howling in my ear that’s it’s time for bed.
She could be right.
