OK, everybody, deep breaths — good. . .good. . .
Focus, now — Can you hear me? Good. . .
As I write this, Lee and Miller have FOUR MORE Liaden books under contract.
The first is Trader’s Leap, which is scheduled for publication in November/December 2020.
Then, there will be two Jethri books — Steve is lead of both of these; the first of which is due with Madame the Editor in May 2020. The second is due in January 2021.
After those are two nameless and as yet formless Liaden novels. I’ll probably start with them while Steve’s coping with Jethri, but first? I’ll finish the revisions of Trader’s Leap.
TO SUM UP:
Accepting the Lance is the 22nd novel set in the Liaden Universe®. It will be followed by!
Number 23 — Trader’s Leap
Number 24 — Jethri book, sequel to Trade Secret
Number 25 — Jethri book, sequel to the above, as yet titleless
Number 26 — Liaden book
Number 27 — Liaden book
Everybody up to speed? Good.
