Greetings, Loyal Reader!
With Noble Cause written, what comes next in the world of Jason Cosmo? I’ve been giving this some thought and I want to share with you my plans.
- Housekeeping Measures: I have a little Jason Cosmo spring cleaning to do. This includes getting Noble Cause and the Jason Cosmo Non-Trilogy Omnibus into the Amazon Kindle Store, some tweaks to this website, and a few other odds and ends.
- Solving the Dirty Work Cover Mystery: See my last post. I really want to know who painted the cover for the U.S. edition of Dirty Work. I sent an email to my former publisher, Penguin, to see if they can tell me. If that doesn’t work…well, I’ve got a few more tricks up my sleeve. It will be fun and maybe You can help solve the mystery.
- Royal Chaos revisited: The next Jason Cosmo book I write will be a revised version of Royal Chaos. This is good news, because it means the book is mostly written. As with the upgrade from Jason Cosmo to Hero Wanted, it will be the same basic story, but with some new scenes, digitally remastered prose, and a twist or two that readers of the original won’t see coming. Also a new title, but more on that later. I’ve learned not to be too definite about release dates, but I think second half of 2012 is the most likely timing.
- Boltblaster: After I update Royal Chaos, the next Cosmoverse book will be the long awaited Boltblaster, which will set in motion many of the events that culminate in Royal Chaos as well as providing deeper context for many of the events in Hero Wanted and Noble Cause. Yeah, deeper context! (I may need to work on my tagline for this one. There will also be fireballs.)
- Unexpected Events: That is not a book title. If it were, it would be a Pratchett book anyway. But, yes…expect the unexpected! Always.
And there you have it! The way forward for the Cosmoverse…for now. As always, thank you for reading. Keep those tweets and comments coming.
