The Skull Throne manuscript is complete and World Fantasy is over. What is Peat doing now?

  •  @PVBrett – Sometimes I think I should make custom warded checks for my business expenses. Then I try to remember the last time I wrote a check…
  • @PVBrett - .@scalzi I’ve already half written the epic survival story after our train to Boston is snowed in tonight. Spoiler: cannibalism @laurenalexg
  • @PVBrett - Eating wasabi peas & the vapor went into my sinuses, making me sneeze. Mouth was full, so I covered it and wasabi went up my nose. #owfuck
  • @PVBrett - Happy Thanksgiving! http://t.co/ZJo7jP1szN

Happy Thanksgiving

Black Friday Sandwiches

  • @PVBrett - Introduced @laurenalexg‘s nephew to @robinhobb at NY ComicCon & got him an Assassin’s Apprentice. Month later, kid’s already read them all.
  • @PVBrett - Living in sin, I am known to @laurenalexg‘s niece and nephew as “half-uncle”, AKA “Hunkle”. I am ok with this.
  • @PVBrett - Not only does iOS Lego DC make you PURCHASE female characters, you have to REPURCHASE every time you start a new game. Tax on girl players.
  • @PVBrett - Want to limit Cassie’s in-app purchases but should she have to EARN playing as a girl when boys get full immersion as the default? Bullshit.
  • @PVBrett - Just received spam offering to give me the secret to writing stories in my spare time for extra cash. Um…
  • @PVBrett - I feel so perpetually busy that taking time to read feels like a selfish activity. This is no way to go about a life well lived.
  • @PVBrett - Watched Guardians of the Galaxy with Cassie again this wekend. Perfect excuse to repost our #gotg #grooting video. http://t.co/EDxtz4ibNw

  • @PVBrett - Despite my best intentions, I may be turning into a grumpy old man.
  • @PVBrett - I am the thing that goes grump in the night.
  • @PVBrett - Even at Holiday Drinklings, @awfulagent finds time to make me work. http://t.co/nYT1R1uzVI

Holiday Drinklings work

New Author Photo

  • @PVBrett - Cassie’s into @lego superheroes & Star Wars. Makes Christmas easy… except having to hunt down individual girl figures at collector prices.
  • @PVBrett - More I think about it, more I’m convinced #SkullThrone is missing a key scene. Will write it now & paste in during copyedit. #alwaysediting
  • @PVBrett - Mmmmmmm. Dessert Spear.
  • @PVBrett - Dessert spear? RT @kcalexander: @PVBrett congrats Seminoles http://t.co/rScDboRkLs
  • @PVBrett - Copyedits are in for #SkullThrone. The battle over interrobangs begins anew.

Now that Peat is done with the manuscript, it’s time to get to the details of The Skull Throne. You know all those nifty little avatars at the beginning of each chapter? Peat draws each of these by hand. And with new characters, new avatars need to be created!

Last week, Peat tweeted his progress:
