Happy New Year to everyone! Here’s what’ll be coming in the Alex Verus world during 2019.
First news is that the edits on Alex Verus #10, Fallen, are done. This book’s had a nice easy edits stage, so I was able to get the edit/rewrite phase done without any trouble. There are still copy-edits and proofreading changes to be done, but the version that you’ll be reading later this year is going to be 99% identical to the one I’ve got on my hard drive right now.
With Fallen wrapped up, I can get to work on Alex Verus #11, which’ll be the penultimate book in the series. I’m aiming to plan it out over the next month or two, and start work around the beginning of spring, with the hope of finishing around this autumn.
And speaking of this autumn, that’s when Fallen will be coming out! Current release date is 10 October 2019, and as usual I’ll try to put the first chapter online a month or two in advance (so say sometime in August).
And hopefully by the time Fallen comes out, I’ll have finished book 11. Which means that around this time next year, at the beginning of 2020, I’ll be starting the twelfth and final Alex Verus novel and bringing the series to a close.
