Project updates

The third Valonia book is finally officially published on Iambik (yay!). No word yet when we’ll get access to the last book in the series.

I was offered another series via ACX called the Summer Chronicles. I finished the first of those, Phantom Universe just last week. It’s currently in post-processing. The second, Forsaken Harbor, is due to be published at the end of this month, so I guess I’ll get to start working on it some time after that.

In the meantime, I’ve got a bit of a break and I’ve been able to concentrate on my poor, neglected LibriVox projects. I’ve finished my SFFAudio challenge book, The Big Time. Just finished cataloging it this morning. My Spanish solo, Angelina is moving along nicely. I hope to finish it before I have to start working on other stuff again (seriously, this poor thing has been going since 2008; it keeps getting pushed aside in favour of other projects). And as I was so close to finishing The Big Time, I decided to start my next English solo. I’m doing the next available Anne book, Anne’s House of Dreams. Next available as opposed to next in the series, because, unfortunately, Anne of Windy Poplars is still in copyright, which is a total bummer, because it’s my favourite. 🙁

I finished my latest project for Ignatius, Poor Banished Children, back in August, but my contact had some vacation time, so I haven’t heard when it’s due to be published. I’ve been offered a novella called Song at the Scaffold to read next. It’s set during the Reign of Terror. Should be interesting.

I’ve lots of knitting updates too, but I’ll keep those for a separate post, or this will be enormous.


Starting a trend


Knitting updates


  1. Do you know the ETA of Windy Poplars becoming public domain?

  2. In life plus 70 countries (70 years from the author’s death), it should come into the public domain next year (if I’m doing my math correctly). Although the US is technically a life plus 70 country, copyright law isn’t made retroactive, so for this book, it’ll be 95 years after the original publication date, 2031. What I really need to do is move to Canada, which is a life plus 50 country. I’d be able to record ALL of Montgomery’s works there (though not for LibriVox). 🙂

  3. I lurve the Anne series! Hmmm, with the Autumn season approaching I think a movie marathon needs to get on the calendar with a pot of hot cider on the stove.

    I love your Librivox work! So excited to see you are doing ALL the Anne books! I love them too, although I think I prefer Anne’s House of Dreams to Anne of Windy Poplars – so I’m waiting for you to finish this one! Thanks so much for all your fabulous (free!) Librivox work! You are one of those who inspired me to try recording myself! I loved your Scarlet Pimpernel recordings so much!
