Release Week

Well, it’s been a long wait, but we’re finally into release week!  An Inheritance of Magic is released in the UK and worldwide next Thursday, on the 5th of October.

Sorry for the relatively sparse content the past few weeks – I haven’t had much mental space for the fun side stuff that I try to put up here on this blog, like worldbuilding articles.  The limited content is likely to continue for another couple of months, but I should gradually ease back into things by November or December.  If it’s any consolation, it’s not going to affect my book release schedule – Book 2 is with my editors, and I should be able to start Book 3 around the end of the year, as planned . . .

. . . at least, assuming the Inheritance series doesn’t flop.  I’ve been reading early reviews and reactions, though, and at this point I’m fairly sure it won’t.  It’s always hard to predict how a new series will do, but by now I’m reasonably confident that the Inheritance of Magic series will be successful.  I don’t know exactly how successful – it’ll be months at least before I have any clear picture of that, and years is more likely.  If I had to guess, I’d say it’ll probably end up somewhere comparable to Alex Verus, but that’s very much a wild guess.  We’ll have to see!

Anyway, UK release is October 5th, US release is October 10th, then after that the next big event will be my Reddit AMA, on October 17th.  I’ll post more details about that closer to the time – hope to see you there!

    Thanks for the update and glad that things in Real Life are getting sorted. IoM launch is still on time and I’m looking forward to it very much indeed! I’m expecting it to raise a lot of questions for fans on the detailed world setting so A Nov/Dec for the start of responses sounds pretty good!
    Sadly, I have no idea what this Reddit AMA is, but I’d be interested if there is going to be book-signing tour planned (although I suspect that you may have such things filed under “Avoid At All Costs”).

    Reddit AMAs are just online question-and-answer sessions. I traditionally do one every time I publish a book, meaning that it’s been two years since my last (which was after the publication of Risen, in autumn 2021).

    I tend to prefer online Q&As to in-person book-signings because (a) most of my readers live in a different country from me and (b) doing it online means I don’t have to leave my house.

    His AMAs have been so much fun!

    Here’s a link to the most recent one.

    Thanks Celia I will make it a point to visit the next time one of these shows up!
    I do understand that from the authors point of view that sitting in a bookshop for 2/3 hours might be (actually pretty certain it would be) a nightmare experience in itself, with the continuous signatures just adding to the torment! But I did have to ask!

  5. Celia says:

    Wow, the signed hardback from Broken Binding looks so gorgeous!!! Thanks for doing that. 🙂
