If you count the original, crummy grey book that was considered the first edition, it was published five years ago today.
And that’s bonkers! I really don’t even have a real draft of The Demon’s Guardian to work from?! What kind of author takes that long? People are on George R. R. Martin’s case for the gap since his last book, but I’m pretty sure it hasn’t been 5 years yet.* (On the other hand, people have waited much longer for Kingdom Hearts 3, I suppose.)
Anyway, this kind of anniversary is usually marked with a celebration. But I am just going to take this moment to say that I am officially starting to write The Demon’s Guardian today. Plus it’s not really 5 years because that first edition doesn’t count in a lot of ways. So yeah. Happy birthday, Rasuke.
*UPDATE: I was just guessing, and it seems I was wrong. Turns out those books have historically taken quite some time to come out. The last one was in 2011, in fact. Who knew?
