Embedded Heart is FINALLY out! The all caps are indicative of a laborious process, since it was written all the way back in 2016, shortly after Iconic Space. The delay was multitude, starting with the arduous task of assembling attempts at traditional publishing, and even when that was set aside, it was ages to do editing and re-writing. And then was the treacly process of finding a cover artist (though Steffi knocked it out of the proverbial postal code) and muttering through the indesign layout process. All to arrive right in the middle of The Event!
Still it is here, and it was fun to work on the actual writing parts, distant as they seem. There is adventure and romance and a tasteful number of butt jokes. (A fraction of my capabilities were it not for restraints like “plot” or “cohesion”.) It is fairly escapist as well, which is good timing, and I hope it’ll be enjoyed!
