Some odd bits and pieces of news for this week:
Alex Verus #11, after a slow start, has managed to build up a bit of momentum. It’s at around the 30% mark and moving along much more comfortably. If all goes to plan, I’ll finish the first draft some time in the autumn and the completed book will come out during the second half of next year.
The release date of Fallen (Alex Verus #10) is unchanged – it’ll be coming out in about three months, on September 24th 2019 in the US and October 10th 2019 in the UK. Yeah, I know, this isn’t really news, but I try to repeat release dates at intervals since I know that ‘when’s the next book coming out?’ is the number one question people come to this website to answer.
Finally, a question: I’m planning to do another Reddit AMA around the release of Fallen, and I’m currently deciding when would be the best time. Usually I try to do them about a week or so after release, but the release dates for the US and UK being more than two weeks apart makes that trickier. Given that Reddit is mostly populated by people from the US, I might go for around the beginning of October, but it’s a bit inconvenient for my British readers. Let me know if you have any opinion either way!
