Postponed: The High Druid’s Blade

Publishing: July 15, 2014

Dear Readers,

Got some news about the next book. Good and bad, depending on who you are and how you stand on things. Del Rey has decided to postpone publication of The High Druid’s Blade until this coming July 15th. There will be no new book in March. Perhaps they are worried about my turning 70. It might be wise not to overwork me. Perhaps they wish to take advantage of the TV show publicity which we are expecting later in the year. Perhaps no one reads my books anymore and they are easing me out the door!

Gee, I hadn’t thought of that one until just right now! What if my career is over?

Well, let’s assume not. But whatever the case, this gives me a little more time to work on the 3rd book and on the concluding trilogy. Always grateful for that.

Right now, The High Druid’s Blade will publish this July and the second book, The Darkling Child, will publish in July/August 2015. Looks like I am back to being a one book a year kind of guy.

Just wanted you to hear it from me and not the untrustworthy grapevine.

More soon on various projects,
