Guest post at Locus Magazine: Leaving one series, starting another

It’s been pretty heartening to have folks ask me about the further adventures of Thomas Weatherby, Shaila Jain and the rest of the Daedalus trilogy crew — there are fans, and they like the stories. This is truly awesome and humbling.

And while one never says never, I do feel that the story that wrapped up in The Venusian Gambit was a good end-point, which is why we announced last week that I’ve been working on a new series: MAJESTIC-12.

That doesn’t mean I won’t miss Weatherby and Shaila, though.

I had the privilege of posting at Locus Magazine’s Roundtable blog today about what it’s like to wrap one series and start another. It’s from a very writer-centric point of view, as you can imagine, and to my surprise, it reads a bit more wistful than I thought.

But that said, I’m excited about the first book in the MAJESTIC-12 series, MJ-12: Inception, which I handed in to my editors on Friday. (Woot!) And the Locus post drops a few more details on that series, so surf on over and check it out.
