A preview of coming attractions

After several weeks of focusing on the new house, this blog, and a few interim projects, events are finally starting to pick up on the writing front. It’s been a month since I delivered City of Exiles, the sequel to The Icon Thief, to my publisher, and I’ve just heard that my editor finished reading it the other day. Advance word is very positive, but there will always be notes, which I’m expecting to receive soon. At that point, I hope to have the rewrite done within the next few weeks, with the goal of delivering the final draft shortly before Thanksgiving. Two days after that, I’m heading off on a vacation to Hong Kong and China, so this month is looking to be pretty intense.

In the meantime, things are moving at a nice clip with The Icon Thief, the galleys of which went out to a handful of advance readers last week. My author page on Facebook is also up and running, so please drop by when you have a chance. Finally, and perhaps best of all, an advance book trailer for the novel is now online. Authors and editors seem divided on whether a trailer adds any value to a novel’s marketing campaign, but it was a lot of fun to put together, and I hope to share another one with you soon. (The music, incidentally, is Claude Debussy’s Sunken Cathedral, which is meaningful in itself: Debussy, according to certain sources, was a Rosicrucian. But that’s a story for another day.)
