Big! Announcement! NEW SERIES!!

Been sitting on this for a brief while, but finally got the okay to spill the beans. I’ve sold a new trilogy to Orbit! Can’t tell you much about it yet — it’s the Untitled Magic Seismology Project (UMSP) that some of you have seen me talking about here now and again; that was the reason for the research trip to Hawaii a few weeks back. I’m working on the first book now, but I don’t like talking much about my works-in-progress until they’re more complete. So suffice it to say that this will be a postapocalyptic epic fantasy trilogy, set in a world of seismic magic users and enigmatic nonhumans called stone-eaters. I’m experimenting with writing the kind of trilogy that follows a single character through mutliple books; this is the first time I’ve ever wanted to try doing so. And while the books have tentative titles for now, I think I’ll hold off on sharing those, given my usual track record with titles (i.e., they usually get changed. Lots.) Let’s just keep calling this the UMSP for now.

So, WOO HOO!! Wish me luck and steady wordcount!

  2. EXCELLENT news!! Congratulations! The premise sounds awesome! :)

    Btw, I finished TKM today. It was all kinds of amazing! I’m still processing it and I’ll re-read it soon, but I loved it. Your worldbuilding is just alksdjlshdgklfg! Okay, clearly, I’m not coherent atm. XD

  3. WOOHOO! Congratulations!! ^___^

    Waiting for my seismology module to arrive in the post (no joke) so will be thinking of you and smiling as I read it. Vague release date for the new books? (I need to catch up on your existing ones first…)

    Wishing you all the words!

  4. Seismic magic? That sounds awesome!

  5. Yes!! I am a greedy, greedy reader when it comes to my favorite authors, so this is very welcome news, indeed!

  11. Wow. You are on a roll – and I’m so delighted that I get to look forward to more books from you in such a short space of time. Whoot!

  12. May the Word Fairy smile on you, and therefore all of us!

  13. Congratulations. Is it rude to ask how far apart these books are likely to be released?

    Just, I was a bit surprised to see that Shadowed Sun is coming out just a month after Killing Moon. Are you comfortable talking about the reason that happened, or is it too intrusive to ask?

  14. Great news! Congrats!

  15. After reading TKM, I’ll read anything you publish.
