Interestingly, she even gives an insight into what may have been a problem on the delays on the earlier books: she used to write in a very linear fashion, strictly one chapter after another. When she got stuck on one chapter, the entire novel got held up, sometimes for weeks or months, until she figured out how to get past the problem.

When I read this I wonder where her editor was ( Frenkel I believe), or maybe even her agent.

You'd think there is someone who is guiding the process somewhat when the delays keep following each other. A solution as simple as this is something I thought would surely have been tried already.

Jim Frenkel left Tor under a cloud in 2013, less than two years into the writing of Endlords, around the same time the massive Tor editing shitstorm erupted. I suspect Jones got lost in the mix with all of that going on.

Man, there's still fallout from that thing. That shit was crazy.

You had Frenkel leaving (or getting fired for gross misconduct, that still seems to be debatable and is probably still under NDAs) and you also had Patrick Nielsen Hayden getting behind on editing, which threw Tor's entire schedule into turmoil for a couple of years.

What is in my hands is ENDLORDS and getting the book started again after a six year break. I know I can write now, though I appear to be slower than before. Perhaps it's just old age. What I do know is that ENDLORDS will be a different book than the one I began six years ago. I've changed. Which means the book will change too. I may start from the beginning. At this point I'm not sure. I'll let you know what happens.

The first sample from the book. It's very brief.

What this tells me is that when the publish date is announced, I'll need a reread of the series before reading the last book.  That's ok tho.    :read:
