New Book & New Series

Revisionary - Cover Art by Gene MollicaOnly six days left until the release of Revisionary, the fourth and final book in the Magic ex Libris series. My box of author copies showed up this week, and I gotta say, seeing all four books sitting together on my ego shelf is a beautiful thing.

Book Giveaway: I’ve got a newsletter going out next week, and as usual, I’ll be picking one subscriber at random to get a free autographed book. You can sign up here or by emailing goblin-updates+subscribe@googlegroups.com.

Other: I don’t even know what else to say. This has been a long journey, starting way back in July of 2009 with a short story called “Mightier than the Sword” in Gamer Fantastic. I love that I was able to show the growth of Isaac and the other characters over the course of the series, as well as the larger changes in the world. While there aren’t any more Magic ex Libris books planned, I’m hoping to return to that world with some shorter-to-mid-length work as I have time.

Which brings me to news item number two…

In addition to author copies, this week’s mail also brought a letter from my agent:

Contract Letter

As one series ends, another begins. I’m signing a deal to write three new books for DAW, currently known as the “Untitled” series, because I suck at series titles. I can tell you this much, however.

  1. These will be SF, not fantasy.
  2. I want to get back to my more humorous roots with this trilogy.
  3. Anything else I say now may change once I actually start writing the books.

The deadline for book one is around the end of 2016, so I’d expect the first one to see print in mid-to-late 2017. Possibly early 2018, depending on various things, but I’d guess 2017.

In summary, I’m very happy to continue working with DAW, and I’m also happy to have job security for at least the next two years :-)

Sci-fi, you say? Does that mean we'll be getting a holographic interface that looks like a firespider?

Nah. We're going full-blown cyborg. Smudge has upgraded to a laser-spider.

I saw one of your Magic ex Libris books for sale in the bookstore of the American Bookbinders Museum. I thought that was apropos.
