wahoo!! I just found the legacy series and was hoping that I wouldn't have to wait too long for the next one :D

Not long at all! The ebook will be out on Thursday and the print about two weeks later, since that's how long it takes to actually print the copies and have them in stock!

Have a question - in one of the Legacy novels Sam tells Teyla she's been engaged 3 times. I know about Jonas and Pete but who was the third?
Jul. 13th, 2015 03:18 pm (UTC)
*grin* Jack O'Neill.

Wow- was this in a novel pre-legacy series or was she counting alternate realities/timelines - lol how on earth did I miss it!

No, we couldn't actually say that Jack and Sam were finally together, despite the production team and Amanda taking it that way after season 8. We had to write the relationship as an established relationship in Legacy, but not exactly, precisely, hair-splittingly say so! Which was why, in The Furies, I used the email to establish this -- they assume every word they say to one another will be read by General Landry, Walter, and God knows who else, so they're very, very discreet. But I think the relationship is clear anyway. Or at least I hope so! And there were things that could be part of their private conversation, like her quote in one of the emails from Peter, Paul and Mary's Jet Plane, a song of Jack's generation that surely he knows. The next lines should be, "tell me that you'll wait for me. When I come back I'll wear your wedding ring."

So it was a delicate dance! But I am especially happy that I managed to keep Sam's dirty joke on the pier at the end of The Inheritors. I thought MGM would cut that for sure! :)

I'm excited, too!

Just a few more days!

Finally, Todd on the cover as a developed and thought-out character. This is majorly awesome! Congrats on the completion of this series and I hope to see more novellas, compilations, or other works from the Legacy team in the future.

I am so pleased with how we've been able to write Todd and the Wraith. That's been one of the very exciting things about doing this series.

Melissa has a Wraith-centric novella in the works -- it sounds fantastic!

There seemed to be an allusion to the novella, in the scene where Alabaster connects with the idea of Elizabeth, as a lost Queen, being found. Looking forward to it. :)
Jul. 19th, 2015 01:07 pm (UTC)
Yes, I think so. That's Melissa's scene, and I think she's foreshadowing her novella. I'm looking forward to reading Lost Queen too!

Ooooh, I'm so excited! The final Legacy book wasn't even on my radar and now I only have to wait until Thursday (and being in GMT +1 I'll probably get it before all the US fans :D) for it to come out. This is the best news today :D

It's a fun book. And there is a lot of Lorne, as he has to handle a crisis on Atlantis with Sheppard gone.
Jul. 13th, 2015 04:39 pm (UTC)
My favorite Lorne plot \o/ Can't wait for Thursday :D
Jul. 13th, 2015 05:12 pm (UTC)
And he's sooooo happy about working with Ember!
Jul. 13th, 2015 05:45 pm (UTC)
Haha, I can imagine <3

Are we ever gonna see more of Sam and the Hammond's crew, BTW?
Jul. 13th, 2015 08:10 pm (UTC)
I believe so. Diana Botsford was pitching a novel set with Sam and the Hammond in the Milky Way in the same timeframe as these last two books. I don't know how that project is going -- I'll see her at CreationCon in August and get a full rundown, I'm sure!
Jul. 13th, 2015 04:17 pm (UTC)
OMG that line on the pier one of the best lines ever - my husband gave me the funniest look because I rarely laugh out loud when I read.

Thanks for the clarification on Jack/Sam. It was clear from the letters and other scenes that they were together but I wasn't sure if they were married/engaged. And by the way I love the Wraith designation for Sam - She Who Carries Many Things *grin*
Jul. 13th, 2015 04:47 pm (UTC)
That was my scene. I really thought they'd cut it, but they didn't! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

What I was going for was that they were engaged, but that it wasn't commonly announced because it would be damaging to her career. People would say that she got the Hammond because of Jack. Unfair, but people would say it. So their plan is that she'll have these years in command of the Hammond, and when she comes back he'll retire and they'll get married. But as she says to Teyla, that comes with a trade off. She's forty now. I really wanted to explore some of those hard choices.

I'm glad you like her Wraith name too! (And Trickster!)
Jul. 13th, 2015 04:25 pm (UTC)
Oh, wow, I've been waiting for so long! This is great news, thanks for the heads-up! *does a little dance*

Re: Yippieh!
I'm glad you're excited! I think it's a good ending to the Legacy series.

The paper copy will be about two weeks later, I'm told!
Jul. 13th, 2015 08:05 pm (UTC)
*dances* Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah...

P.S. A Wraith novella? Oh sweet heaven, thank you, Mel.
Jul. 14th, 2015 12:12 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah indeed! I've heard a bit about it as she's started, and it's going to be a treat for Wraith lovers.
Jul. 14th, 2015 12:37 pm (UTC)
As luck would have it, I'm in the process of finishing a book and searching for something new to read. Oh how good fortune has shone... :P

*crosses fingers for snippets of new Wraithy novella* This means I'll have to go back to stalking her page.

I hope you enjoy it!

It's great to have a new one out!
Jul. 13th, 2015 10:50 pm (UTC)
Just got one thing to say, sounds exciting but disappointing that it's the last book for the Stargate Atlantis Legacy Series.
Jul. 14th, 2015 01:44 pm (UTC)
I think it is exciting and fun. I know -- I'm a little sad to end the series too. And maybe at some future time there will be more. The thing is, we've gone as far as we can without changing things too much. This is the point in a show where, like in SG-1, Jack would go to DC and Landry would come in and there would be Cam and.... But we can't really do those things. And so we need to stop at the moment before they would logically happen. Does that make sense?
Jul. 14th, 2015 05:27 pm (UTC)
Yes, that makes sense and is understandable. Plus it is a good idea to not change anything anyways.
Jul. 14th, 2015 09:19 pm (UTC)
Eeeee!!! Thursday can't come soon enough!
Jul. 15th, 2015 11:51 am (UTC)
I hope you enjoy it!

It's a fun book and I think a good ending.
