Official Announcement: MetaWars Continuation

I've made off-hand remarks and left hints over the last few months, but now that contracts are signed and sent to the appropriate parties, I want to make the official announcement.

Pocket Star will publish two more books in the MetaWars series in 2013.  TEMPEST (MetaWars #3) will be told from the point-of-view of Ethan "Tempest" Swift, as he deals with a decades-old vendetta against the former Bane who murdered his mother, as well as a personal secret he's been keeping from his friends and teammates.  CHIMERA (MetaWars #4) will follow, wherein a lot of different shit hits the Meta World fan.

For folks who missed it, Pocket Star is a shiny new imprint at Simon & Schuster that will specialize is Digital First books. This means that as of now, there will not be mass market paperback copies of TEMPEST or CHIMERA--just e-books.  They only way that *might* change is if sales of the series books really take off and a print run makes financial sense.

So there you have it. And don't forget to grab a copy of CHANGELING on June 26!

This is awesome news! I cannot wait to read those books. I absolutely loved Trance and can't wait for Changeling.

I wish you success on the MetaWars series. To be honest, I vastly prefer the As Dead series, but with both series, your writing is good, narration is good and you have a great imagination - or writer's mind. So I hope the Meta series takes off for you and people get to buy print copies - although, it's only a matter of time before all books will be in e-book form. It's coming! :)
