Book 8 Updates

Still have a bunch more Ask Luna questions to answer (there was a LONG queue to work though) but for this week I thought I’d take a break from that to give you all some news on Alex Verus #8!

As of last week, I’ve received the first-round edits from my publisher.  I’ve decided more or less what changes to make, so it’s just a matter of getting it done.  Luckily, the plans don’t call for anything too drastic, so the job should be finished before the end of July, hopefully in time for me to get started on Alex Verus #9 in August.  (For those of you confused about what ‘first-round-edits’ means, take a look at my series posts about the stages of a new Alex Verus book.)

Book #8 also has an estimated release date and a title.  It’ll be called Bound and it should be released at the beginning of April 2017.  As usual, I’ll put up more closer to the time, but obviously you’re going to have to wait a while yet for a sample chapter!

    Frustrated that the wait is so long, but I am sure it will be well worth it, and I am stoked to see you are already planning on #9. Keep them coming, please, as this is my newest literary addiction!

    This is one of only two current running books series that I buy new. I normally love to hunt about in second hand book shops and charity shops.

    I just found your series and I have to say I’ve fallen in love with your characters.
    I’m just finishing book 7 and so looking forward to the next one.
    One big glaring mistake earlier on in the series is when Luna broke her arm and you had a healer set it.. How? One touch is deadly.
    A few spelling mistakes is usual for digital books.
    Yet I still enjoyed them.
    Already recommended to friends.
