Meanwhile, my previous re-read (A Game of Thrones) on my previous blog is returning in style, all posts collected into book format - both printed and as e-book. How's that for taking blogging to a new level... will be interesting to see how it all turns out. The book is called Waiting for Dragons and is scheduled to be published sometime in April. Right now the book is in copy-editing.
I admit that the prospect of having a book out like that is both exciting and pretty scary. I also realize that I will probably be seen as a so-called 'fame parasite', trying to earn money on George R.R. Martin's success.
For the record, the thought hadn't occured to me until yesterday, when I saw the use of the word 'fame parasite' used in a newspaper. And I was like, "Oh wait..."
The truth is I was offered this opportunity to have the previous blog published as a book, and I took it, rather without thinking much beyond "cool".
And still, exciting as this all is, I am even more anxious about A Dance with Dragons. 109 days left 'til deadline today - and still he's talking about wrestling with Kong.
Maybe one day he will admit that he actually has a gorilla in his home and we were wrong all the time about Kong being that elusive fifth book
