Has it been that long?

I wanted to post here, quickly, because I've been getting a number of emails asking me when Cast In Fury will be published. As far as I know, it's on the schedule for October of this year, which means it can probably be found sometime in September on bookstore shelves.

There will be a fifth Elantra novel, Cast in Silence, sometime a year later (it's not finished, and not, therefore turned in, so I'm not at this moment entirely certain when). It is not planned as the final novel, but should be less world-threatening, as it involves Kaylin's past, her missing six months, and her first meeting with the Hawklord -- but it's me, and while this is all true, things will probably shift a lot in the actual writing.

I'm currently working on the second of the House War novels, which has the working title House Name.

I am currently fretting about The Hidden City, as well. I have the actual cover in hand, and it is hands down my favourite book cover ever -- the amazon.com image doesn't really do it justice. The cover is mostly a matte finish, with the title & Jewel's image in gloss; the matte brings up the subdued palette of the Stone Garden, and the overall effect is beautiful.

This is not, of course, what is making me fret. About which, more later, unless I have managed to get over it. You've been warned.

I have nothing to say except: Hooray on all fronts (except the fretting). And, if it's writing more books that makes LJ updates slow, then delays in LJ are fine by me. ^_^

I'm definitely looking forward to both books(even if you're fretting about Hidden City). Glad to see you posting again :)

Real life, especially with deadlines looming can keep one insaely busy. I'd like to say thank you for taking the time for the little update.

I'm personally very ecstatic to hear that I can expect another book in Elantra out later this year. And even more thrilled to hear there's another coming! Your Elantra novels have utterly enthralled me.

Hi, hi. Welcome back and I want them all! (As you know.) I just happen to be reading HUNTER'S OATH right now.

I recently noticed your Elantra Chronicles while browsing on Amazon, and again while browsing in B&N--decided to give them a try. They proved to be really enjoyable, and I am so looking forward to these next installments. From quietly poking around your yahoo group, I knew there were at least two more in the works, but it's nice to know one's coming up this fall! Thanks (and I hope you don't mind strangers commenting on your LJ)!

Thank you :). And no, I don't mind strangers commenting on my LJ, which is why it's a public forum -- and even if I were of a mind to, there's nothing in your post that does anything but bring a smile to the author hind-brain :)
