Eaglethorpe Buxton, famed adventurer and story-teller is back, this time to put on a play about a sorceress. When the sorceress, subject of his play arrives with fire in her eyes, Eaglethorpe must pretend to be his good friend Ellwood. Will he pull off this charade and survive? And what happens when the real Ellwood shows up? One can never tell, especially when Eaglethorpe tells the story.
I’m getting ready to count up book sales for the month so far. Some books will have high sales numbers and some low numbers, but I don’t necessarily love my best-seller(s) the most. I have strong feelings for all of my books. After all, I wrote them because I wanted to write books that I would like to read. When some books that usually sell very few copies suddenly do well, even if it’s only a little bit, I feel a bit of pride.
Tesla’s Stepdaughters is one of those books. It’s really different from any other books I’ve written. Science fiction and fantasy are easy for me, but a mystery (such as it is) seems much harder, and I’m just proud to have come up with it.
When Eaglethorpe Buxton sells well, I’m similarly pleased. I suppose its a validation of myself as a humorist. I probably had more sheer fun writing EB than any other book.
I feel good when somebody buys (and reads) Princess of Amathar. It was my first book and took the longest to write (years and years).
Picking my favorite book or my favorite character really would be like picking my favorite child. I love them all. And just like my children, there is a little bit of me in each of them. Even the evil ones.
I’ve been working really hard on Kanana the Jungle Girl, and I’m well past the halfway point of the draft, but I took a couple of days off this week to work on a new Eaglethorpe Buxton story. The new Eaglethorpe book will definitely be out by the end of the year, so it seems like a good time to show off the cover.
The plan is to combine the original two Eaglethorpe stories with three new ones, so that there will be five tales in this book.
Eaglethorpe Buxton and the Elven Princess
Eaglethorpe Buxton and the Sorceress
Eaglethorpe Buxton and the Queen of Aerithraine
Eaglethorpe Buxton the Day of the Night of the Werewolf (not a typo) and
Eaglethorpe Buxton and the Unicorn Hunters
There is a possibility of a sixth story as well, but I haven’t Eaglethorpe hasn’t drafted it yet, so it might not appear.
