Now that the release of Fallen has come and gone, I thought I’d give you guys a general update. There have been various bits of minor good news as far as Alex Verus translations go (short version: it looks as though all the countries in Europe with translation rights to Alex Verus are going to put out more of them) but I figure that most of the people reading this are primarily interested in the English version.
During all the lead-up to the release of Fallen and during all the time after, I was continuing to work on the first draft of Alex Verus #11, and it’s finally almost done! I’m writing the last chapter right now, and it should be finished in another week or so. Then I’ll give the manuscript an edit and look-over and rewrite any bits that I think really need rewriting, and send it off. My deadline for this one is December 1st, so one way or another, that’s the day I’ll be sending it to my publishers.
Actual publication date is harder to predict, but going off past estimates, the usual average time between first draft hand-in and final publication is a year. So assuming there are no major delays, best guess for the release of Alex Verus #11 is winter 2020. As usual, once I have a firm publication date, I’ll post it up here!
And while I’m at it, I also have a (fairly definite) title. The eleventh Alex Verus novel will be called Forged.
