New book’s making good progress. The first chapter’s almost done; usually I find that to be one of the major sticking points, so it’s always a good sign when I get past it.
It’s always a bit strange giving these kind of updates. For most of you reading this, your main interest is probably Book 1 of the new series, and even that’s a distant thing far off in the future (release date is about 9 months away). For me, on the other hand, Book 1 is basically over with. All the major decisions and nearly all of the minor ones have been made, meaning that there’s not very much reason for me to think about it anymore. It already feels like past history, and by the time it comes out in October I’ll probably be spending most of my time planning out what I’m going to do for Book 3.
