Joelle is in Greenville for two days (Wednesday & Thursday) while we do story conference. We've worked out where we want to go through Book #3 and into Book #4, and I think folks will be pretty satisfied with where #3 and #4 end. However, I should warn you that this series has been sitting long enough that Baen is planning to re-release both of the earlier books in trade paperback format before the hardcover of #3 is released. So we probably won't be seeing the new book on the shelves until sometime in 2017. However, for those of you who will be at Honorcon, I am working on bullying Joelle --- er, I mean talking Joelle into doing a reading from the new book.

Just saying. ;)

We're talking about a release date about 18 months after we actually hand in the ms, and I hit the wrong key. I meant to say 2016, not 2017. If we get it in by the end of 2014, 18 months would put us June of 2016.

Sounds nice; now if only you could talk, --- er, I mean bully :lol: someone into making a video of the reading and putting it online, that would be great!

I also badgered Joelle with this on the Bar a while ago. ;)

I'll post the Omissions I discovered from the Glossary
& the Cast List, Alphabetized to accord with the format.
However, it will be October 2014 before I can
provide them, due to lack of Computer Time.

Here they are:

I beg pardon for not posting this cross-reference sooner.
