New Projects?

A reader asks, "Do you have any new projects? Is there anything you're working on now for us to look forward to?"

There are a couple of possibilities! I don't know for certain whether either of them will sell, or when or to whom yet, but they're both things I'm currently working on in addition to Wind Raker, the fourth Order of the Air book. (Wind Raker will be out next year. The third book, Silver Bullet, will be out in the fall.)

One of them is a retelling of the classic novel The Count of Monte Cristo from the point of view of Haidee, the Greek slave girl who becomes his partner in revenge on Fernand Mondego. The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favorite books ever, and I've always wanted to tell Haidee's side of the story. I have hopes that an editor will find it interesting too!

The other thing I'm working on right this minute is tentatively called Cythera, and it's an erotic space opera. My friend and Legacy coauthor Melissa Scott said that it does in science fiction what Kushiel's Dart does in fantasy, which is high praise! I'm hoping that it will also pique someone's interest!

The erotic space opera sounds wonderful. I'm a huge fan of the Kushiel books, so she's sold me on it already with that one comment.

I'm a huge fan of the Kushiel books too! I would so much love a chance to talk to Jacqueline Carey one of these days.

I'm really enjoying working on Cythera. She's turning out very much like Charmian in some ways.
