"highly nervous author day."

Scored a copy at 10pm Monday. Yay, more Dorrin! I like the royal bones in Lyonya.

Minor question - is it intentional there's no country name for Lyonya on the map in the front? Chaya is the capital, right? It would have been nice to have the Honnorgat labelled too. Is there a bigger map on the Paksworld blog, with Aarenis and the other south and eastern places labelled as well? Thanks!

No, it was not my intention that the country name for Lyonya was left off the map. However, it's possible that I myself left it off by accident when I sent the labeled map (I send the publisher both a labeled--in a plain font--and an unlabeled map, onto which they put the test in the book font.) I would have to check my map files to be sure. I didn't see a proof of the map before it went to press.

At any rate, the map in _Oath of Fealty_ has Lyonya on it. When I finish the master map, I'll put it up on the Paksworld website and note that in the blog and Twitter, but it will be awhile. I'm ear-deep in work on the next two books (one in production, one in draft) as well as other stuff. In the meantime, there are copies of the earlier maps up on the Paksworld site at: http://www.paksworld.com/maps.html
