The sequel to An Inheritance of Magic (current working title: An Instruction in Shadow) is coming along well. I’m currently midway through the first-round edits, working through them at a rate of about chapter a day.
One chapter per day is actually really, really fast for a first-round edit – if you’re interested in learning about it in more detail, I’ve written about the different editorial stages here, but short version: the first-round edits are the big ones, and they can cover anything up to and including full-scale rewrites (which can take months). So I’m very happy that this time around they’re so easy. Apparently my editors really liked the first draft as it was!
At the current rate I should be done with the first-round edits in a couple of weeks, at which point I’ll be free to start work on Book 3.
