Today is the official release date for the third book in the Mystic Isle trilogy, MYSTIC WARRIOR. In the strange land that is publishing, that means the sales over the next few weeks of this last book of a series will influence the number of books printed for the first book in my next series, AN HONEST SCOUNDREL, A Younger Sons Novel, which won't be out until next July.
So anyone who wants to see me returning to Regency England, run out and buy WARRIOR now.
To show how far out in time NYC works, I'm revising SCOUNDREL (July 2010) now while publicizing WARRIOR (July 2009) and writing the first draft of the second book, tentatively being called A CIVIL ROGUE (July 2011). (Please feel free to chime in on titles! SCOUNDREL is probably set in stone but ROGUE is still in my head)
And while I'm at it, I'm supposed to be whipping up an exciting sales blurb for the series and each of its heroes. Piece of cake, right? Make it chocolate. I'm pulling the covers over my head.
