There has been some confusion re the differing pronunciation between the first three NR audio books, produced by Blackstone, and the last two, produced by Audible.com. Blackstone did not consult me re pronunciations; so many things were mispronounced.. Audible.com did, and therefore got it right. Unfortunately, listeners assumed just the opposite, and have been leaving negative reviews. This has hurt sales, of course. I hope this clears it up.
Anyway, just wanted to get the word out.
Some people seem to have gotten the idea that CoS is the last Nightrunner book. It is not. There will be one more, very tentatively titled Shards of Time.
Here’s a kick ass article by author Juliet McKenna on the inequalities that crop up in various arenas of genre publishing, including reviews.
I’m really pleased with this. And no, that’s not supposed to be Alec or Seregil. And no, I’m not saying who. >;-)
Art work by Michael Komarck
Here it is, folks, the first good goof from NR 7.
“Going to the manglepiece, he opened a small casket that stood there and slid his ancestor, Corruth í ?’s ruby ring on his right forefinger.”
Found the text of an old interview in a folder. I can’t remember when it was or who it was for off the top of my head, but it’s apt. Maybe I’ll use it as my author bio in the next book.
“Lynn Flewelling is a medium-sized mammal native to Maine, but can survive in captivity in a wide range of climates, including southern California. It lives largely on tea and is not by nature nocturnal. It has a variety of calls, but perhaps the most poignant is the frequently heard “The deadline is when?””

All good things must come to an end. And so it is that this week I start work on the seventh and last Nightrunner book, currently untitled. As much as I look forward to trying fresh directions, I will really miss these characters, all of them. I’ve known most of them longer than I have my kids.
I am working on Glimpses II, though, and maybe more short stories. We’ll see.
That is all
