So I am on the east coast, finishing up the workshop Viable Paradise. As always, it has been a great week — and a great visit.

I was in New York about 10 days ago, and according to my editorial assistant (who I think will probably become my editor, at least I hope so) the three books will come out in 2018. Of course I am not going to let myself believe that until I see cover art, and a firmer date because I've been through this twice before. But still, I had a great talk with her, and what's more, she really liked A Sword Named Truth.

In the meantime, once in a while when I get the courage, I take a quick peek at the discussion of Inda going on at reddit/fantasy. I am learning a lot about what those readers respond to and what they don't.

My reading has backed up because I became addicted to an intensely wonderful Chinese series called Nirvana in Fire. My connectivity has been awful, and reaching the show means either dealing with YouTube, which not only has many annoying ads, but a bunch of the episodes have the subtitles completely off track, or Viki.com which has the most annoying commercials ever. (Or maybe I'm just not used to commercials as I seldom watch commercial TV, but rely on Netflix.)

I am going to make a post about Nirvana in Fire, but what I want to say now is that it is about loyalty, secret identities, complex politics, unrequited love, and fun characters as well. not to mention ninja powers. the actors are jaw-dropping the beautiful, and all my goodness the clothes! The setting!

Well, that sounds like good news... here's hoping it remains that way, and that it will be a good sign for the coming year - may we receive only good news this year!

Now I really can't wait to read your full post on Nirvana in Fire.

Im torn - super excited that you got a good response for a sword named truth and all three books in one year but 2018 is a long ways away!

I know--my heart sank, too. I just hope they don't let it slide even farther!

Thanks for the update. I second the thought that 2018 is a long way away but I'm looking forward to reading them! (Hopefully its january 2018)

Please Keep us posted on what happens with these!

Thanks! Yes, the idea was, winter, spring, and fall 2018.

Nice to hear some good news! At least there won't be a long wait between books, even though 2018 seems far away. I think close pub dates can work to retain readers, so there's some silver lining.

Nirvana in Fire sounds cool, thanks for the recco.
