Pinion, f/k/a Tourbillon, has had a close line editing pass. All done.

Starting tomorrow (or possibly Thursday, depending on what else needs to get done tomorrow), I'm back in for the deep cuts, now that I have it in my head.

And in case you missed it this morning, my "thank you" to stillsostrange on the matter of the title: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]

Yay for _Pinion_, and hopefully you do something fun to celebrate!

And yes, stillsostrange's a classy lady :) That was super of her.

You know, just as an aside, I dig Tourbillon as a title more so than Pinion. Am I to assume the publishers lack faith in the public's vocabulary skills?

I think the issue was the title Tourbillon was a much less recognizable word than the previous two in the series, and without a useful pun or semipun embedded in.

I'm going to enter into talks with my publisher about changing the title of my novel to Pinion as well.

I'm thinking it may help with advance sales (though to avoid confusion the attribution of your blurb on the back cover will need to be changed to "Jay Lake, author of that other Pinion.
