Today my flight out of Strasbourg was delayed, so I missed my connecting flight to Oslo in Amsterdam. The result of that was an eight-hour wait in Amsterdam before the next flight, so I got to hang out with some of the local readers while eating pancakes and fries. If you’re in Amsterdam and you missed it, that’s probably because you don’t follow me on Twitter or Facebook. Sorry for the really short notice, everyone, but you can’t really plan missing a flight like that. I do hope to return to the Netherlands sometime in the future, but it could be a few years.
Tomorrow I’ll be signing in Oslo, Norway. The Outland Kirkegata bookstore is flying me out, so I hope a ton of Norwegian readers can show up at the signing and make it worth their while. That’s the major reason I sent out another newsletter today, but I also talked about my progress on A MEMORY OF LIGHT and about the THE WAY OF KINGS paperback release (it’s out now!). If you’re not on the mailing list, you can request to be added here. Also tell me your city and state if you want email reminders when I’m appearing nearby.
This week’s Writing Excuses episode covers a bit of a different topic from usual. Howard and I sat down with Tom Smith at Penguicon to discuss filking and writing music. Don’t know what filking is? Check out the podcast.
We did manage to get a WARBREAKER annotation put up last week. It’s the one for chapter 52, and covers a lot of spoilerific things leading into the climax.
