Quick update for those who bid on the Queen Of Dreams proof for charity last year. Kate Cadman finished the London Marathon (her first ever marathon) yesterday in an amazing 5 hours 15 minutes. In the end she raised £2,600 for the National Deaf Children's Society. Inspirational for the rest of us. http://www.justgiving.com/Kate-Cadman
I've been invited to the Geekopolis convention in Paris on 17 - 18 May. So if you're going I'll be happy to say hello (in my very bad French), and please feel free to bring any of my books you want me to sign.

Karl, sorry I managed to delete your post (using an iPhone not a laptop -arrgh). You asked about getting hold of a copy of The Abyss Beyond Dreams in the USA this fall. The good news is that this time around my US publishers Del Rey are aiming for a simultaneous release date with the UK. Bad news, its not a trilogy, just two books.

The Abyss Beyond Dreams (first draft) came in at 198,000 words.
That now spends next week getting kicked into shape. Then editors read and make notes. Then I argue editorial changes. Then I rewrite. Editor read through. Last small scale changes incorporated. Then it gets copy edited. My last read through. Proofed. Printed. And oh look, it's October already.

Reason why it's been quiet round here lately: Deadline -coming in fast over the horizon. To quote the late great Douglas Adams: I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

Some people (such as "Dave" in the guestbook) noticed that Pandora's star was pulled from Audible, and wondered why this happened. It turns out that there have been some complaints about the sound quality of that recording. For that reason, the book was temporarily removed from the Audible store until the engineers have fixed this.
