    Congrats — well-deserved!

    I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to the next book in this universe. Bright of the Sky was the first time in months that a book really excited me. My favorite aspect is Sydney and the life she’s made for herself.

    The girl in Bright

    Very nice to hear; I love her story, too. Those horses are messy, though!

    A World Too Near

    Thank you! A World Too Near has a gorgeous cover, btw, another Stephan Martiniere masterpiece, IMHO. World Too Near will be out in March, and I think it’s even stronger than Book 1, or maybe I was just tired of the first book and happy to get on to the second one.

    Patrick, thanks. Pyr and Prometheus were very charged up about it, and had many nice things to say to me. For their part in all this, they are really great to work with. I must say, Lou Anders is one of the smartest editors in the business. I couldn’t be happier.
