Can I Lie Some More?
Or...The Dragon needs some suggestions for excuses to offer

Many fans have been requesting--nay, demanding--the third book in the Choices trilogy. While I would be delighted to spin this baby out next week, that just isn't going to happen. So while production items take place (editing, testimonial-gathering, early-review gathering, test reader reports, etc.), I need a list of "Excuses Why Choices Made for All isn't Out Yet" to offer to fans, family, and friends.

Any ideas for me? Computer crises are always great excuses, but they often require special code talk. A programmer could spot my lie a mile away if I don't phrase it just right... ;)

While waiting for Book III, I encourage you to pick up (or download for your Kindle) Choices Meant for Gods and Choices Meant for Kings to get yourself caught up on the series!

You could say that it was published by some famous author, and you're trying to get the rights back. You could even make it funny, like naming an unlikely author. Heck, why not make it a contest?

THAT is an awesome idea. I like the thought that Neal Gaemon [sic] (I'm trying to keep Google Alerts from sending this to him and getting me sued) could be implicated in pre-publishing my work and then becoming embroiled in a legal battle of the publishing giants to return my rights to me.

Now, that, Robert, is excellent fantasy. (and PR) You rock.
