Right, after some months of benign neglect, I am ready to get back to work on RoseThorn, to do those final tasks that have been waiting patiently. Not that I haven't been working. I've done some short stories and made about 20k in progress on each of my next two books (that's 40k words), and have been reading and starting to do reviews. All along, however, I've been letting ideas percolate. Now I'm ready.

So, what's up?

Illustration. Starting to do concept sketches for a series of charcoal and colored pencil landscapes; yep I know I suck at figure drawing, my strength has always been landscape and still life. So that's what I'm going with to get started. Aerlie. The Vale. The Tower at Hazsu. The Tower of Azcalon. Kestrelrock. And two views of the City from the Citadel (basically a before and after).

I'll post updates as the drawings come along.
