They like me, they really like me!

Just heard from my agent that DAW is going to buy my proposed sequel to Marseguro, working title Terra Insegura.

Woo-hoo!

Watch for the return of “the first sentence I wrote today” in the very near future…

    Marseguro doesn’t end ambiguously–it’s quite complete in and of itself–but it definitely ends with a “And then what happened?” feel. But don’t worry: the sequel won’t be five years in the making. We were hoping to get it out by fall of 2008, but I don’t think I can make the necessary deadline, so it’ll probably be out in early 2009. After that, though, if DAW keeps wanting my stuff, I hope to start doing two books a year. I can see one more book in the Marseguro universe past the planned sequel, if they want another one, but I don’t think it’ll be an open-ended series.

    Congrats! Does that mean Marseguro ends ambiguously? And how long would I have to wait for the sequel if I got Marseguro in January? Not that I’m impatient or anything, but right now I’m waiting for Christopher Paolini’s Empire and Chris Walley’s conclusion to The Lamb Among The Stars series… this after devouring Deathly Hallows in about 8 hours…. I knew when I read Hominids that I’d be with it to the end. All this to say that if you’re going to tease us with the promise of a sequel, I’m hoping it won’t be 5 years in the making… please?
