Unascended!

It is my very great pleasure to announce that there will be seventh and eighth Legacy books! We have received a memorandum of understanding from Fandemonium for Unascended, Legacy book seven, and will be starting on it immediately! It is due to Fandemonium on March 1.

Unascended is a go!

So great to hear! It's like the show is being renewed! ::confetti!::

Does that mean you're, in a way, doing NaNo? I mean, it's a day early if you start writing it today... ;D

Heh. Extended NaNo! I have four months to do 50,000 words on Unascended. Of course I'm still in the middle of Wind Raker too. And Serai.

I never can make NaNo speed, though. I can do about 300,000 per year in a good year, but that's only half NaNo speed.

The first time I did NaNo, I'd never written anything that long. I got into the habit of 2,600 words a day with that. So now, nine years later (wtf, nine years...?), I keep up with that tradition in that 2,600 is acceptable but I aim for more. This year I'm expecting at least 70k for NaNo (Underdogs 3), and if I hit that goal, it'll get me to one million words written this year. \o/

But then again, I AM the special kind of crazy. ;D

You are the fastest person I know. You're even faster than Melissa, and she's seriously fast. I'll just be back here in your dust!

::nods:: I warn everyone who follows me on NaNo to NOT try and catch up with me or even keep up with me. Too easy to get disheartened when they're at 4,000 and I'm cruising to 25,000. ;) I'm just trying to keep up with all the ideas! ;D

Wonderful! This is great to hear and just what I wanted to hear when it comes to StarGate Atlantis!

Yay! More Atlantis! I need new novels to get my Atlantis fix. :) I'll be buying the new ones as soon as they come out. So looking forward to this!

Congrats on Unascended!

But... dear heavens are you going to be busy until March. (Not that you're lazily writing away the rest of *this* year, but still...)

jo_graham
Nov. 1st, 2013 07:04 pm (UTC)
*grin* I am always busy! I have Wind Raker 2/3 finished, so finishing it is probably first. Then I'll do Unascended and Serai simultaneously. (I'm also doing a little on Sacred Queen.) After that it's Oath Bound and Endless in some order or simultaneously. So yeah, busy! :D

*thud* I'm exhausted just reading that. And struggling with my Nano word count.

I can never make the NaNo word count. Never. I can do about half a NaNo!

I have made it every time I've tried. My problem is what to do with the partial afterwards -- the revising and the "Oh, this really doesn't work" stages.

You just made my month! I saw this message this morning and thought, November suddenly got a little brighter. Can't wait for Unascended and book eight. -happy sigh-

Still smarting about Silver Bullet, but we can't win them all. Perhaps its the lycanthrope in me. But I'm jazzed about that too!

I am so pleased that it's going to happen!

Well, Silver Bullet will be along in February, and I think you'll like it. If you're itching for something new of mine to read, you could try Cythera! It came out today!!!!

How could I miss this? :O Yay, Elizabeth! Yay more Legacy! Yaaaaaay!

(Hopefully, more Lorne and Cadman, too *coughs)
jo_graham
Nov. 2nd, 2013 05:49 pm (UTC)
Definitely more Elizabeth! I can't wait.

There will certainly be more Lorne in Unascended, but probably not Cadman. She's on the Hammond, and the Hammond is back in the Milky Way dealing with the Lucian Alliance at this moment. So I don't think either Sam or Cadman are going to be in this book. :(

Stargate Universe
Will there be any mention of the events of SGU in book seven

Re: Stargate Universe
There may be, but it won't be much because our guys aren't anywhere near it and wouldn't know much. Maybe Woolsey, when he's on Earth. But it's not going to be a major plot point.

Re: Stargate Universe
whereabouts in the timeline is the book set during 'Air' the premiere of SGU

Re: Stargate Universe
Well, none of this is carved in stone as we're just beginning, but the action of Unascended should take place concurrent with the first half of the first season of Universe.
