Ask em if you’ve got em!
IP asks: I would like to know if you are still planning to continue the Federation Chronicles (Wilhelm, Deimos etc…) and if you have an idea when the next book will be released? I would very much like to write Wil’s book! It’s going to be a while before I can work on a proposal for it (I’m booked into February of next year writing wise at this point). I’m going to say even if they buy it, it’ll be probably 2014 before you see it. But yes, I’m definitely going back to the Federated Universes.
Christine asks: Do you have any plans to do story about Levi’s brother Jonah from Sway? I will be writing about at least one of Levi’s brothers for sure, perhaps more.
Is Armando’s story from the De La Vega Series in the works for next year? I’m not sure I’ll be putting any more new material into next year as I’ve got:
Beneath the Skin in print in January
Going Under in print and digital in February
Lost in You in digital in March
Lush in digital and paper in April
Laid Bare in mass market in June
Lost in you in print in September (and there’ll be a Visit to Petal story in that)
Raven’s book in digital and paper in October
Torn and Frayed in digital and paper in November
So I’m pretty booked up for 2013. If I do fit anything else in, it’ll most likely be another chapter in Rowan Summerwaite’s story after Goddess With A Blade. I never say never, but having 8 releases a year is increasingly difficult. That’s a lot of work and promotion and I’ve got three kids in various grades and they’ve all got a lot of stuff they need to be hauled around for, LOL.
