So, what's the news, HoM.  How's it going?  Did you and Fell managed to compact the series from three books into two?

The news is that things are going very slowly, but moving.  Yes, book two and book three will be combined, making it a two book series.  I'm thanking my lucky stars that I kept promoting it to the publisher as a series rather than a trilogy.

My guess is that it will be to the publisher in two months, and I'm hoping that the process on their end will be relatively quick -- my guess is that it will be released somewhere around next spring.  I hope.

I've decided to avoid writing sequels for a long time.

Yeah yeah yeah! I got the book today. Hopefully Brandon won't read this thread and see that I'm going to read yours now and finish it first!

Oh good.  I was beginning to think it had got lost in the mail.

Incidentally, in regards to Awake 2, I officially got the "I'm breathing down your neck" email from my editor yesterday.  Let's hope things speed up.

Oo!  I want to see that.  Do you think you can post it?

I can't.  Actually, due to me posting some of my editor's emails on my blog, she's now started putting a little confidentiality blurb at the bottom of her emails.  I'd mentioned a little too much of their processes that they didn't want competitors to know.  I think it's hilarious.

The email wasn't really anything great, though, so you're not missing anything.  Basically, I'd told them the book would be done in February, and it isn't.  I'm not on a contracted deadline, but they want to see it as soon as they can.

So, what's the 'E.' stand for? I did enjoy the book. The acknowledgements and about the author pages were my favorite two. =P You should write an afterword for the second one discerning where all this goofy material came from and how you got your info on just how subtle airport security would be at 3 am and what would happen if someone continued using their broken wristed hand after it's been broken for days. Fell must not of been too happy about those little trials and tribulations.

The E stands for Earl.

And yes, no doctors were consulted in the writing of the book.  (However, doctors were consulted for the writing of the sequel.)

So, the book is complete! Well, almost.  It's been sent out to readers this week for critique, and I hope to have it to Covenant by the end of the month.

Well, hooray.  The book is done, and sent off to Covenant via the glory of the world wide web.  I can't tell you how happy I am to have this stupid thing finished.  It'll be a long time before I try writing a sequel again...

As a guy who's now editing his first sequel, I heartily congratulate you.  It's harder than it looks.

So HoM, when is this book coming out?  Haven't heard anything about it in forever.
