KRK Covers!!!

Posted by Rowena Cory Daniells on March 17, 2010


This is it. I am so excited. The covers for books 2 and 3 have arrived.

First of all a BIG thank you is in order to the team at Solaris for selecting Clint Langley as the artist. I am so impressed with what he’s done!

I love the look of all three and I love the way they work as a design when you put the three together.

Would you pick up these books if you saw them on the shelf?

Writing Craft

Posted by Rowena Cory Daniells on March 8, 2010

I’m currently in the middle of the edits on book two of King Rolen’s kin. And now my editor, Jonathan Oliver from Solaris, has posted 10 rules for writing.

I should be taking notes!

10 rules for writing according to Jon

Okay, so apparently the Guardian has been running a 10 rules for writing thingy, and David and Jenni thought it would be interesting/amusing/shocking/inspiring for me to give my take on these, seeing as I’m an editor and I’ve written one book and that. Anyway, this is going to be messy so bear with me:

One step closer!

Here’s the cover of book one of the Chronicles of King Rolen’s Kin. My editor tells me the next cover will be delivered soon, maybe in a week. Clint Langley is the artists and I’m really looking forward to seeing what he does with the next book cover.

Meanwhile, my editor at Solaris has sent me book two ‘The Uncrowned King’ for editing. I would like nothing more than to immerse myself totally in the book, tidying up the little glitches that he has discovered, but life gets in the way.

!Whinge Warning!

This weekend I have to mark assignments for work (I’m an associate lecturer). I have to take child number 6 to the dentist. And I’m involved in organising a national workshop, for which there was a competition to enter. This is the weekend that I have to prepare the contact emails to the 51 entrants to let them know if they have been selected to be offered a place at the workshop.

I’d be flat out, without the editing of book two. Meanwhile, we’ve decided to sell our house, so I should be cleaning, sorting and throwing out, and painting the walls where the kids have scratched them, or stuck up posters and pulled off the paint, etc.

Why can’t I just run away from life and do nothing but write? Sigh.

Does life get in the way for you? How do you find time to write?
