Finish Line

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.

    Is it too early to be excited ? I loved the darker turn in Fallen. Thanks for such a fantastic urban fantasy series.

    I have to say that I got into this genre thanks to jim butcher and harry d… but I’ll tell you that your story telling is every bit as good and compelling. Bravo! And thank you for being one of the tale Ted individuals to bring such great stories into this world. You have made a very faithful fan and reader out of me. Thank you!

    Tale ted was supposed to be “talented” sorry for the typo

    Looking forward to the next book. I’ll be interested in how people will be able to go forward after Fallen.

    *whines pitifully* another year of waiting? How shall I Live? “Fallen” was spectacular and I loved how well you keep weaving together threads that have appeared years (and books ago). Sigh, I guess, I’ll keep rereading the books until then.

    Forged: I like that title.

    This series just keeps getting better and better. Fallen is incredibly gripping, even if a bit dark. I am just sad the series will be coming to an end. I hope you’ll let us know what your next project will be?

    I am having an odd obsession with a scene in Fallen: I keep trying to keep a body count with the audio book version of the fight in the mansion storeroom. I know there are 26 enemy combatants, but I keep getting lost about #17. It’s a great scene and Gildart Jackson is wonderful. (I also tried to keep count of Steven Segal’s kills in “Under Siege.” Maybe I have a counting mania.)
