Scourged was a great ending to the Iron Druid Chronicles! Thank you!
If you'll forgive my love of crossovers,
`"May Harmony find you."
Loving Scourged. I'm following Fierce Druid around Taiwan and had to stop to hope that you had to visit there for book research.
My stories mostly take place on other worlds (I still spend far too much time there on research :) ), but I like how I feel as though I'm there with the characters. I can smell Wu Kong's tea shop.
@kevinhearne Congrats on the trip to London!
I'm so happy I get your newsletter... I like the change of title even as I'm I'm a little sad to see Oberon go. And Ashville isn't too far... I may have a mysterious illness that day and not go to work...

I am in the bliss of edits and rewrites. Oh, and I've learned two new 'revision tools.'
1. Change the gender of a minor character. Really makes you pay attention to pronouns, mannerisms (though I didn't change these at all, because they fit the character concept) and descriptions (he to she loses goatee).
2. Write a query. It took me weeks of successive queries to describe my novel in ~250 words; along the way, I discovered how I needed to make the manuscript clearer.
Does anyone else have trouble reading after learning many of the nuances of writing?
I've just noticed that I'd rather write than read most of the other writing I find out there.
When I do read it, I usually end up frowning at unnecessary filters, rolling my eyes at comma splices, and getting frustrated by repeated short, simple sentences that tell rather than show. It's 'adult' genre, why do 'adult' writers write at a 4th grade reading level?
Some people make snowmen, my daughter makes snow-women, and I make snowotters: https://emkuriel.wordpress.com/2018/03/13/snowbody-grasps-fun-like-otters/ https://writing.exchange/media/cIj3m8UpLVkzAOOqmLw
Here's my review of A Plague of Giants: https://emkuriel.wordpress.com/2018/03/10/kuriels-review-a-plague-of-giants-by-kevin-hearne/
Fantastic job! I eagerly await the next in the series.
@kevinhearne A cage match between Mike and Oberon? My little otter heart can't take it. But Mike didn't survive his mistress, so Oberon wins.
Now all we need is a match between Hermione Granger and the Fierce Druid and I can have a stroke...
Dear Write.as, can anyone spare a moment for a one question survey? I'm collecting opinions on book/series titles here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/N66BQMV
Saw a sign at a shop today: "Mind your own biscuits and life will be Gravy." I immediately thought of Oberon.
Also, I'm about halfway through a Plague of Giants... it's by far my favorite of your books. A Masterpiece up there with "The Name of the Wind."
A post, a poem, and the title of my next short story today...
