Scott Lynch talks about The Thorn of Emberlain, writing, world-building, and more

Last month, the Helsinki Times caught up with author Scott Lynch at WorldCon 75. Concerning progress on the much awaited Thorn of Emberlain the author stated:

My wife and I will have an uninterrupted 2 month period after we go home, during which I basically hope to get the book turned in, and then we can begin setting a firmer schedule for its publication. For the most part I’m very pleased with it. I’m pretty sure that I can fix the stuff that I’m not pleased about in the next 8 weeks or so.

We also learn a bit more concerning the plot and main characters.

News from Scott: Thorn of Emberlain update and take action!

Scott Lynch has recently answered several questions from readers on his Tumblr account. One of the posts concerns the status of The Thorn of Emberlain:

THORN needs an ending written (the ending is outlined in depth, just not yet written) and some targeted rewrites in three or four specific areas, based on vexing but extremely astute criticism from my agent, my genius wife, and a trusted friend. This is my primary job for December.

I’ll let you check out the other posts concerning various actions.
