This is yet another update post, I’m afraid.
First, my timing has been appalling. Falcone Strike is due to be released (officially, this time) on the 19th. This clashes with Vanguard, which is now in its final stage of editing; 47 North would rather I didn’t release Vanguard until 1st February. I’ve decided, therefore, to put Vanguard up for pre-order as soon as the final editing is done, set for automatic publishing on the 1st. I’ll put a sample up as soon as the editing is done, too. I’m hoping that the surge in sales caused by the pre-order will do interesting things to my sales ranking <grin>.
Second, my current plan is to write Sons Of Liberty (TRS 4) next, followed by They Shall Not Pass … (TEC 12). This story will see Gwen heading off to America, but a very different country from the one we know.
Third, I’m spending the next week or so fiddling with plot ideas, mainly for stand-alone books (although I do need to finalise Twilight of the Gods II). I’m playing around with a book for younger teenagers where a magic-less person is sent to a magic school, a semi-fantasy novel following a soldier who is appointed to serve as regent and guardian to a murdered emperor’s children and a couple of others. They’ll probably be written in April or June at this rate.
Fourth, I hope to write Book Nine of Schooled In Magic in March, depending on how matters go. Book Ten will be coming along shortly afterwards, as they fit together. More details as I finalise my plans.
Finally, I’m going to be attending Eastercon in Britain (Manchester; 25-28 March) and Honorcon in America. Hope to see you there!
Thanks for reading
