Yesterday, I wrapped up my first draft of the Guild Wars novel I’m writing and shipped it off to my editor and the fine people at ArenaNet. I had a lot of fun working on it, and I think it all coalesced into a fine tale in the end.
According to Simon & Schuster’s website, the book is due out February 23, 2010. I don’t know if that’s carved in stone quite yet, but it’s as good a guess as any.
Much as I loved working on the book, it’s a huge relief to have it out the door. I’m sure, given the nature of such tie-in novels, that it will come back for revisions, but I’m thrilled to know that the bulk of the work is complete.
Now I’m going to take a couple days to pay bills, maybe get my taxes going (I filed for an extension), and tackle another couple details that need to be knocked down. Then it’s back to the keyboard to wring Amortals out of my brain. It’s been lurking there far too long and needs to be let out.
