My newest best friend

My newest best friend. After two listens, I think I know why. It sounds like early Sting. Sound, lyrics, pacing, mood. Yep. Going to be a good day.

    Couldn’t tap into the link, but no matter. I have finally got my mitts on Drafter, and am dipping into it. So far, I love her attitude!

    Check out a band named Starset. If books came with a soundtrack, this could be it. I can’t listen to it without hearing Peri and Silas everywhere. Hell, the album starts with the line, “We can change the future. We can change…the past”.

    Anxiously awaiting The Drafter Part 2!

  3. Happy New Year! May it be better than the last one.

    As for me, I loved the Hollows and couldn’t wait to read “The Drafter”. I especially loved your concept and use of time to add suspense – it was unique and fascinating. I’m sorry to hear the publishing industry is so like many others – wherein even the content creators are sometimes treated as mere cogs in the big machine. My experiences have had a similar taste.

    I, for one, anxiously await the Peri’s next adventure.

    I’m not big into “fandom” – I’ve never signed up for a blog before. But – I found I liked your writing so well that I wanted to find out more about you, books I may have missed, etc. Oh and I would love a “glass” – what cool technology. Perhaps, like Asimov and the geosynchronous satellite, we’ll have you to thank when we finally get one!

    keep up the great work!

    Hi Kim, I am not really sure where to leave a general comment about your new series; your website has become a bit more complicated as you have gained more and more popularity, and you are understandably harder to contact.

    I heard you were miffed about your new series not being picked up as fast as the Hollows is/was, and I’m not sure if that is true or now. But I want to explain it to you anyway, as one of those people who was slow to pick up your new series.

    The Hollows was so good that its one of my favorite series, and it made you one of my favorite authors. I know it had to come to an end, and you did a great job making a happy ending (even though you forgot that you’d asserted in earlier books that souls and auras are different, and the premise of the entire ending wouldn’t have happened if you had remembered lol!! What with Al changing her soul/aura. But anyway back to the point). The characters in the Hollows were like good friends, laid to rest. Its like when your pet dies and you aren’t ready for a new one just yet. The fact that this new book came from you kind of made it worse in a way, that I would be reading your book without my beloved Hollows characters! I just wasn’t ready to move on.

    My friend asked for your book for his birthday a few days ago. Despite bitter sweet reluctance, I read a few chapters of it before handing it over… and I ended up asking him for it for xmas! lol. I finished reading it today, just a couple hours ago, and the ending made me cry a little. It really was a good book, but I know there is so much more to come. Now that the world-building, the technicalities of drafting, anchoring, and the mental-after effects of it have been set, I can’t wait for Reed to have a chance to settle down and build some more in-depth relationships, with friends, or between Allen, Jack, Bill !?, and (preferably) Silas. I’m really looking forward to the next book!

    I know more and more of your Hollows fans will give Drafter a try, as time passes, so just relax and do your thing. To be honest, without a push from my friend, I probably wouldn’t have been ready for another year!
    And who would have thought its possible to make your characters too loveable 😉 ?

    Merry Xmas!

    • Dear Sara.
      I appreciate your insights, but I don’t think miffed is the right word. I think you have a misconception of how the traditional publishing industry works and how little control the author really has. For instance, did you know the second book is already written and is sitting on my editor’s desk? Much of what you see going on is not my decision or under my control. All I can do is write them. After that, it’s out of my control.
      You have a great Christmas break, too.

    • Sara, I’m sorry for being so snarky with you. It’s not your fault, and I lashed out unthinking. I’m sorry. It hasn’t been a very good five months. I’m angry at everyone for things not under my control that should be, and again, I’m sorry.

    Love the music! I just finished “The Drafter” and I LOVE it! A fantastic read! I cannot wait for the next book. Kim, I have read and loved all of your works and just when I think it can’t get any better, I am astonished and overjoyed once again. You are an amazing story-teller Kim, and I will follow you to any world you choose next!
    Thank you for your wonderful imagination, Kim!
