In the last couple of weeks, I’ve had some very exciting news. I’ve been told that I might have some roughs for the cover of Songs of the Earth to look at soon. With my editor, we’ve finalised the cover copy a.k.a the bit on the inside flap that makes you, the reader, start salivating as you fumble for your credit card. And I’ve got a tentative publication date.
Naturally, as Gollancz are still working the kinks out of their schedule for the first half of next year, there’s still an “ish” factor here, so I won’t be revealing the date until I know it’s firm, but it does mean that the countdown to launch has begun.
This is becoming alarmingly real.
