The Shadow of Things to Come will feature the fall of Asu’a 500 years ago, told from the perspective of a Nabbanai envoy from the court of [Imperator Enfortis]. So we’ll see Asu’a before its fall, [and] probably witness Ineluki killing [the Erl King] Iyu’unigato…

The sad thing is, I can't be as celebratory as I'd like because I'm several weeks overdue to start writing EOG, the second full volume.
However, the good thing is that means I can sit around staring into the air for a few days while I order my thoughts about how the book is going to be shaped. That's my favorite part of writing, to be honest. The part where you just think, not write yet.

We’ve just heard that publication of ‘The Witchwood Crown’ has been delayed two months to June. We’re not entirely clear on all the details. Partly it’s this: it’s a big book, the copy-editing was complex and took a gargantuan amount of time, and other aspects of the book’s production were affected too; and partly it’s because sales and marketing want more time to more effectively sell the book. We don’t know anything more than that at the moment, but will tweet or facebook when we do.
Not sure. About a hundred pages, I'd say (I'm writing in separate chapter-files at first, so I don't have a running overall page count). The last couple of months, with the holidays and various kid-related things, have been grueling. I'm expecting to have a nice long stretch in the next few months to get the first draft substantially done.
Can't say for certain, but I'm aiming for a year to a year and a half max between books. I'm pretty good at that these days, and I've actually started and finished several multi-volume series, so it shouldn't take too long altogether.
The (tentative title) Shadow Of Things To Come will be written, but whether between one and two or two and three I don't know yet.
Funny, I was just thinking about this the other day -- connections between the two worlds. I think it's possible that there may be a Michael-Moorcock-style multiverse underlying all my books, but I've never consciously tried to link them all together.
I'd like to write that one day, too. Just re-read it the other day and it started me thinking again.
I would LOVE to do more BD, and in fact my plan was to do the first three to set him up, then do standalone in the future, more like regular crime books. I still aim to do that. I love writing the character and the world, and hope to expose more people to it in the future. I even have a title (and story) for the first standalone, whenever it happens -- not for a while, because of the Osten Ard books -- "Forever O'Clock".
