Done that then.
The Faeman Girl is finished! A smidge under 91,000 words emailed to my agent yesterday and scheduled for publication by Bloomsbury next autumn. Bloomsbury U.S. are already working on the cover, which they want to have a strong family resemblance to the first four of the Faerie Wars books. Actually the first four, Faerie Wars, The Purple Emperor, Ruler of the Realm and Faerie Lord are really a single story stretched across four volumes while Faeman (the term denotes a faerie/human hybrid) is a stand-alone book set in the Faerie Realm about sixteen years after the time of Faerie Lord. But there are still some familiar faces in Faeman including Blue and Henry, Madame Cardui, Chalkhill and Brimstone and an important bit of Lord Hairstreak. Can't wait to see it in print.
