The next Jethri novel will not — that is NOT — be published “this fall.” The next Jethri novel — Trade Lanes — is due on Madame’s desk this fall. This is a very different thing.
This is what the Lee and Miller Writing Schedule looks like:
Salvage Right: due on Madame’s desk June 2022
Trade Lanes: due on Madame’s desk September 2022
Untitled Liaden/Redlands book: due on Madame’s desk June 2023
This is what the Lee and Miller Publication Schedule looks like:
Scout’s Progress anniversary reprint: March 2023
Salvage Right: Summer 2023
Trade Lanes: Fall 2023
Note the progression: First, we turn the book in. Then, Madame and her team work their magic. Then, the book is published.
Thank you for your attention to this process.
