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!
