Just started the last confrontation in what’ll be the last chapter of the last Alex Verus book. Word count is at 94,000 out of my original estimate of 90,000.
Alex Verus #12 also now has a title and a (projected) release date! It’ll be called Risen and if all goes well it’ll be coming out on December 2nd, 2021. This does depend on everything going to plan with edits and publication schedules, so don’t go writing it down in your diary just yet, but that’s the target we’re shooting for. I asked my publishers if we could put this book out no later than a year after the last one, and it seems they might be willing to do it. My plan is to finish the first draft by the end of the year, give the book a quick edit and incorporate some suggestions from my beta readers, then send it off to my publishers in the first week of January.
