I have guest posts here:

Post on Write On, Right On: Reading for Fun and How I Temporarily Forgot How to Do It http://writeonrightoncom.ipage.com/42/reading-for-fun-and-how-i-temporarily-forgot-how-to-do-it

One thing I've been thinking about lately is how so many writers don't have time to read. We presumably got into writing because we were readers, but the older you get, the more you work, the more you have to do, and it starts to get hard to find time for reading. I hate that.

The Page 69 Test for The Harbors of the Sun

There's an interview with me here about Harbors and the Books of the Raksura in general:

Also, on July 4 we sat out in the yard after dark, and found out we have a colony of small burrowing owls. It makes sense, since we have two water sources (a lily/frog pond and a fountain) and no outdoor pets any more. And now I know what made all those holes, and it wasn't snakes and giant spiders.

I am just amazingly jealous at the thought of burrowing owls in your yard! They are so much fun to watch. I had to take a special birding trip to see one!

OMG, burrowing owls right in the yard! I can see why you were so puzzled, though; it's not the first thing one thinks of when one sees holes. Though if I recall correctly, they tend to use burrows excavated by other animals like ground squirrels or rattlesnakes. Yay for no giant spiders, at least.

I thought I wouldn't read the bit from the Page 69 Test, because I wanted to save myself for when my copy arrives (I hadn't read the longer excerpt you posted either, for the same reason). But I caved and read it, and now I'm even more excited aaaa! I've also started reading the long excerpt - so much for that resolution haha. Can't wait!

Is it just me, or were a couple of the questions in that interview really as clueless as they sound? Does he not realize that the duology is part of the Raksura series, not a thing in and of itself?
