And of the four things I wanted ready for this date, only two are complete.
The entire novel The Chronicles of Delarun is now available for reading on .pdf, and this includes the prologue, epilogue and interval bits between the five sections. So if you've read the five Geren novels and are interested, just let me know. (Paper copies yet to come.)
The short story 'The Black Prince Apologia' is also now accessible through my Portal Page. It might seem a bit strange putting up a Black Prince story on t'DoL's birthday, of all things, considering those two aren't exactly friendly. But I know t'DoL would have really liked to get his hands on something like this, just to try to understand the Prince a little better. To him, it would be a gift.
The third item I'll add here when it's complete, and the fourth was always going to go up on renewer_rising anyway. Whenever that happens!
NOVEMBER 28: Finally done! Below are photos of the winged bookends from Windstone Editions that I got and painted to resemble t'DoL's wings. Alas, the 'teal' color comes out completely wrong in the photos. Bottom image taken with a flash. It's wonderful to have these holding up my paper copies of my novels, after years of anticipating Melody Pena completing these sculptures!
Happy Birthday, beloved! I cannot believe it's less than three months to the 20th anniversary of meeting you. You may want to start thinking up a good hiding place, right now... =D
