I broke cover with this elsewhere on teh internets just now, so this makes it official: Book 3 of The Wild Hunt series will be called The Raven’s Shadow.
The title has only just been agreed on with my agent and editor, so Amazon and other e-tailers might not have got all their ducks in a row yet, so be patient with them.
To the best of my knowledge, the book should be out round about this time next year, assuming I can get to the bottom of the to-do list* taped to the side of my monitor, deliver the script by the end of next month, and no horrific blunders emerge in the edit.
*crosses off today’s completed tasks, viz. Items 18 & 19 – yay. Achievement unlocked: ice cream!
Honestly, I go for weeks with nothing to blog about and then I have to write two posts in one day!
The big news is that I’ve signed a contract with Orion for a fourth book in The Wild Hunt Series. As I finished Book 2 and got into Book 3, there turned out to be rather more story still to be told than I’d thought, so The Wild Hunt is now a quartet (I like the way that sounds better than “tetralogy”, which always tries to tie my tongue in a knot for some reason) and will keep me off the streets until 2014.
The new book is provisionally entitled The Wandering Moon, and I’ll keep you all updated on its progress in due course.
I also found out recently that Book 2, Trinity Rising (coming out next month, hint hint) will be available as an audiobook, read by the wonderful Allan Corduner who did such a great job of Songs of the Earth. He’s currently filming, but we hope to get him in the studio later in the summer to start recording.
Woo, and may I say hoo.
