So, do you want the good news, or the bad? I always want the bad news, which in this case is that there will not be Kate 6 until Feb. 2013. That is of course if we do not all perish in the predicted 2012 disaster scenario. That would be worse news. The good news is that we are almost done with the copy edit for Fate’s Edge and it is on schedule for a Nov 2011 release. The other good news, or I hope it is good news, is that the Andrea’s book is our next project, we plotted it out last night in the pool, and it will be out in June of 2012, in place of Kate 6.
I am told to convey to you that this book is set in Atlanta, and takes place between Magic Slays and Kate 6 timeline wise. Kate & Curran will be in it, but are side characters. It is Andrea’s story, the one where she decides if she will be in the Pack and perhaps more importantly who she will be with romantically. As I said, we have it figured out and we are going with a new villain and mythology. Not sure how much I am allowed to say. Also, for the rest of this year and the next we will be working to put out extra content via eBooks.
Please don’t panic. If you wish to express your displeasure or frustration with this decision we totally understand. but please respond here on the blog. Please do not email us to tell us how much we suck.
We are actually doing this for a good reason. We have Kate 6 pretty much figured out, but for it to work we need to resolve the Andrea situation. There will also be a Jim and Dali book, probably after Kate 6. So again, it will be Edge 3, Andrea book, Edge 4, Kate 6 and then the Jim and Dali spinoff. However, if we ever do get a TV or movie deal, we reserve the right to take the money and retire to a nice little beach somewhere. Then all bets are off and it will be a book or two a year. Maybe.
