New Foreigner Book!


a few hardcovers and pbs available from Closed Circle, signed. Latest: Moonlover and the Fountain of Blood, Jane Fancher short story. Chernevog, part 2 of the Rusalka trilogy co-written by CJ and Jane; and Orion's Children, a tetralogy from Lynn.

Getting very close to adding Chernevog and Yvgenie…

We only have to get the files copyrighted, and up.

For those who’d like to know. there’s been a little change in Rusalka, a greater change in Chernevog, and a massive change in Yvgenie—in the latter, I’ve rewritten it line by line: nothing’s left untouched.

This is because, well, between multiple parental illnesses, publisher deaths–2–and things too sad to mention—I wasn’t with it.  And then my publishers went into meltdown.

I had a vision of these books—I loved these books. But—at the end, I turned them in as less than they could be because I had to survive. And my publishers at the time—don’t ask. I was very glad just to survive, but then the distributors started into warfare with my books as the centerpiece of their accusations.

Don’t ask. But these are what I wanted them to be.  ‘Nuff said.

If you’ve ever wondered what I meant, if you’ve ever wondered about the ancient world, if you’ve never walked in a forest alone, if you’ve never wished for the impossible, or wondered if it was a good wish—skip these books; otherwise, read these, and think better of me than what you read the last time.

And spread the word among your friends.

    Well, I’m convinced to go back and read the Rusalka trilogy when the last two books go up. I have the original trilogy packed away in boxes but it has been a long time since I read them. I’ve pretty much gone exclusively digital these days anyway, so this will be a treat. I’m still hoping that you will publish ebooks for Finity’s End and Tripoint – searching for those led me to the Closed Circle site for the first time, and I noticed they are no longer listed as forthcoming.

    Bear with me—they should be forthcoming as soon as I get through some of the current mess—ah—projects. They are only not listed because they don’t have covers yet.

    Wow, the whizmatronic came off the rails… 5988% complete on Peacemaker?

  • CJ

    It hates it, it does, when I forget to put in a comma. Sorry ’bout that!

  • 5988% Complete? Dang, sorry I missed seeing that one! That’s complete by an…astronomical amount. I bet Spock’s eyebrow would go up, WAY up. Oh well, it’ll get there.

    Syntax errors happen. Very annoying. Very.

    It looks like May could be a very good month for you ladies! Chernevog, Yvgenie, and a new book by Jane… Be still my racing heart!

    A detail about the WWAS-blog for next month, after Chernevog and Yvgenie are done, and maybe the proofs for Protector: the Recent Comments show up fine when reading the main blog, including the pages with the comments; but on the pages with comments on Linguistics, or Foreigner spoilers, or the other items at the top, the Recent Comments do not show up in the left column.

  • Agreeing with Hanneke; I had just noticed this yesterday. (Thought it had gotten solved globally after the recent upgrade.)

    So first off, I’m just thrilled to discover this place, and I was even more thrilled to discover a re-release of the Rusalka series. I was randomly searching Amazon for it today, when I discovered this site, and the news that the series was being reworked. Rusalka was the first of your books that I ever read, and I loved it. Cyteen drew me in next, and led me to share your books with my mother. We’ve both devoured your stories ever since. While I was deployed to Iraq, your stories about Danny and Cloud were profoundly touching. The reflections of life, death, and the tendency of people to assign greater value to some human lives than others… those things have always stuck a chord, but never a deeper one than while I was deployed to war. All this, and for me, it started with Rusalka. I don’t believe words can ever convey my gratitude at what you have shared with all of us.

    I know this is an old post, but it seems the right topic for the question:
    Any updates on putting up the Yvgenie e-book? It’s been MONTHS AND MONTHS! (pout, whine, complain, mutter, etc. :))

    TBH I have all 3 Rusalka books in softcover, used.. but I immensely enjoyed Rusalka/Chernevog in the new edits, and since you’ve indicated Yvgenie is complete, this loyal fan wants to purchase the latest bit of (favorably revised!) awesome. ESPECIALLY since I have to wait ’til next spring for the next Foreigner. (sigh)
