Announcements on various fronts are forthcoming. The last few weeks…months…have been taken up with considerations of the future, negotiations, new contacts, new ideas. For me, it’s been an exciting time, and definitely feels like the start of a new phase – for good or bad remains to be seen, but at the moment I’m wallowing in the crackling energy of newness and possibility.
I’ve spent the last ten years telling essentially one story over a trilogy of trilogies, dense, complex, with a massive cast of characters, numerous mythologies, and two thousand years of human history – but one story. And now I’m just about at the end of it. When I first mooted this tale back in the golden, boomtime days of the nineties, my editor frankly thought it was too big a project to pull off – and I did nurture a few self-doubts myself. It’s been exhausting, infuriating, stimulating, and hugely fulfilling. But that’s still a long time to be exploring one small part of the jungle.
More next week.
