For those who don’t know how much I love the Dresden Files series, let my current header be a small indication. I do. Or maybe I just love Harry Dresden. Either way, I have followed this series for years.
Here’s the thing. I’ve been beating myself up figuratively (the slam on the head was NOT intentional!) for the two-year delay between my last novel and my soon to be published one. Two years! Between hurricanes and other disruptions, it has taken me far too long to get this one done. But then I realized that it has been FIVE years since the last Dresden File book. Five. Years. And the last one left us hanging about several issues that are of great importance to Dresden fans.
If any of you live near Jim Butcher, could you please go light a fire under him? Or smack him on the head with a rolled up newspaper? Or at least scowl in his general direction? I’d like to find out what happens next in the life of my favorite wizard while I still have wits enough to READ. Just sayin’ …
The good news about this is I feel a lot better about my two-year delay, and I’m going to TRY to give Jim Butcher the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps he’s had hurricanes of one sort or another in his life, as well. I just hope he’s hard at work again, and that we really do get the next book very, very soon. I miss Harry!
In the meantime, the header above will have to do.
Write on, Jim Butcher. Write on!
