New Year's Eve is a strongly Scottish holiday (Hogmanay!), so it is appropriate that I should write to wish you all a very happy new year.
My big goal for January: finish writing the sequel to The Explosionist, The Snow Queen!
I'm not quite sure how the publisher's schedule works, but I would think that if all goes as planned, the book would be published in winter or early spring of 2010 - I'll post more details here as things develop.
Thanks to everyone who has written to me or blogged about liking The Explosionist and wanting to hear what happens next!
