What is it?
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

YA novel I'm working on.  I have a few sample chapters, if you want them.  I may have to change the title, though, since a very dissimilar book just came out with a close title.

I'd rather not talk about the book too much, since I won't be able to get to it for a while, and I'd like to keep the ideas off the internet for a bit.

Well, anyone here can have the sample chapters if they want.  In fact, anyone can have sample chapters of any of my books.  I send those out pretty freely.  I'm just not sure I want to go posting the ideas for this one about yet.  

Also, if anyone wants any of my old books--anything pre-WAY OF KINGS--you need but ask.  Most of them won't ever get published in their current form.  So, if you're ever board, you can read an old, unpublished Brandon novel.

The complete Brandon Library is:

1) White Sand Prime  (My first Fantasy Novel)
2) Star's End   (Short, alien-relations sf novel.)
3) Lord Mastrell (Sequel to White Sand Prime)
4) Knight Life (Fantasy comedy.)
5) The Sixth Incarnation of Pandora (Far future sf involving immortal warriors)
6) Elantris (You have to buy this one!)
7) Dragonsteel (My most standard epic fantasy
8) White Sand (Complete rewrite of the first attempt)
9) Mythwalker (Unfinished at about 600 pages.  Another more standard epic fantasy.)
10) Aether of Night (Stand-Alone fantasy.  A little like Elantris.)
11) Mistborn Prime (Eventually stole this world.)
12) Final Empire Prime (Cannibalized for book 14 as well.)
13) The Way of Kings (Fantasy War epic.  Coming in 2008 or 2009)
14) Mistborn: The Final Empire (Coming June 2006)
15) Mistborn: The Well of Ascension (Early 2007)
16) Alcatraz Initiated (YA Fantasy. Being shopped to publishers)
17) Mistborn: Hero of Ages (Unfinished.  Coming late 2007)
18) Dark One (Unfinished.  YA fantasy)
19) Untitled Aether Project (Two sample chapters only.)

Trivia fact: Jeff gave me a copy of White Sand to look at back when we were all at TLE. It's been on my hard drive ever since, and I have yet to look at it.  :-[

I did start reading a bit of Dragonsteel a while back, but got distracted by something else. One of these days I'll read the EUOL library, but I need to read Alcatraz and MsFish's book first.

Heputh!

The main character in one of my stories did that to! Course, he killed another kid, but still, same kind of thing about not knowing what happened. They say great minds think alike, I must have a great mind!

Tor passed on it?

I still need to read the most recent version of that before going on to anything else...
