Progress Report

I am now 77 pages into The Darkest Hour, the fifteenth and final book of the series. This is easily one of the biggest books I’ve written – not in terms of length (at this point I don’t know how long it’ll be), but in terms of storytelling scale. There are about five different simultaneous storylines, with many different viewpoints spread out over multiple countries, but in spite of the distances involved every storyline is related to the others. How? Well, you’ll find out one day. I think it’s time for a little honesty, though: I make a show of doing this for you, the readers, but at bottom I’m largely doing it for myself, and one of the things I enjoy most about it is the sense of revelation I get as the book advances and I see how things are going to work out. The fact that other people enjoy the eventual results is a bonus.

For now, The Shadow’s Heart should soon be hitting shelves in Australia and New Zealand, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
