Here's some news. I'm working on a new Bartimaeus project. Actually, I've been working on it, off and on, for about a year now, with a big break in the middle to do the Heroes tours. I've kept pretty quiet about it up until now for a variety of reasons, partly because I wanted to be sure it was going to work, and partly because I wanted to get the contractual side of things sorted. But (at long last) I think the time's right to go on the record about it here. The current plan is to aim for an autumn 2010 publication, both in the US and UK, which would be fantastic, and also match up nicely with the proposed publication of the Amulet graphic novel, about the same time. If this is going to work out, though, I'm going to have to write my socks off for the next six months or so, because there's still a LOT of work to do. Currently Bart resides in two slightly garish pink ring- binders, one comprising text and the other notes. The aim is to turn all this into a nice, neatly stacked pile of manuscript by the spring.

As for the details of the book… small things like plot and structure are still proving slightly fluid, so I won't make any public predictions just yet. But I'll let you know more right here, just as soon as I can. In the meantime, I suppose I'd better get back to work. I've got a djinni waiting.

(edit) Wait. A djinni? Isn't it a djinn if it's singular? Shoot. So my original misspelling of the original title of my account was actually correct?

Whatever. It better be good or /wrists

Djinn is singular, Djinni is plural.

As to the actual content of that post: YEEEAAAAHHHHH!!!

Thats what I thought, except Stroud says, "I've got a djinni waiting."

A djinni. Must be a typo, or something.

Probably... Either he meant djinn, or the a was accidental.

Me too. I didn't think making a two thousand page book into three was that bad. Gives us more to read over time.
