WORK(S) IN PROGRESS
I've been getting the occasional email lately expressing interest in what-all I'm writing these days, since there seems to be a lot of it. [g] Well, there is a lot of it. I do normally work on multiple things at once (it keeps me from having writer's block, for one thing), but I will say there's more variety in the old to-do pile than usual, thanks to several invitations from interesting anthologies.
I've also been hearing wildly varied guesses-most of them totally wrong, and where y'all get this stuff, I have no idea.regarding when any of these various works will be published.
In (rough) order of priority at the moment, though, I'm working on the following things-and I'll post an excerpt or two from each of these, over the next few days (so if you're an excerpt-avoider, be careful!):
AN ECHO IN THE BONE - this is the 7th (but NOT the last!) book in the main OUTLANDER series, in which we continue the adventures of Jamie, Claire, Roger, Brianna, Young Ian, Willie, Lord John-and a Lot of Other Interesting People You Haven't Met Yet.
I'm hoping to have the manuscript finished by the end of this year-and therefore am trying Really Hard not to go anywhere for the rest of the year.
**** THIS DOES NOT MEAN THE BOOK WILL BE OUT IN DECEMBER of this year-IT WON'T!!!! It means I'll be through writing it, I hope. IT WILL BE PUBLISHED (God willing and the creek don't rise) probably in Fall of 2009. *******
SEE (OR DON"T SEE [g]) NEXT POST FOR EXCERPT.
