Author Kevin Hearne reports:
My ultra-spiffy publisher, Del Rey, has signed me up to write six more books, and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Many thanks to all my readers for their support; you’re the reason I get to keep writing.
Three of the books will finish off the Iron Druid Chronicles as I’ve always planned (books 7-9) and the other three will be a bit epic.
Also included in this deal is another IDC novella called The Grimoire of the Lamb, which is finished and will be released in the US/Canada and the UK and affiliated territories as an e-book original in 2013. It’s set four years before the events of Hounded so there’s no Granuaile, but we get plenty of Atticus and Oberon as they get lured to Egypt by a priest of the crocodile god, Sobek!
Random House Audio Publishing Group will continue to produce audio for the US/Canadian market and Luke Daniels is the man, never fear. Release dates for audio are always the same day as the publishing date.
I don’t have publishing dates for the books yet—I have yet to write them and I need to finish my Star Wars novel before I can get busy with these. However, I can now tell you the title of the seventh Iron Druid book: Shattered.
Oh yeah: These will all be hardcover. (Eeep!)
I’ve been informed that Trapped will also be making an appearance on the New York Times bestseller list, so a gazillion thank-yous for that as well, and for the very kind words that some of you have sent me.
May harmony and an excellent beer find you. Cheers!
