FAQ: When’s Kitty #5 Due Out?

January 21, 2008

I have some good news and some bad news.

There’s been some confusion because the back of “Silver Bullet” says one thing and I’ve been saying something else. The deal is this: my editor and I came up with this hoopy plan to release #5 and #6 back to back, as a sort of two-parter. This required moving the schedule around a bit, to give me a couple of extra months to get #6 ready in time.

So the bad news is, Kitty #5 (which still doesn’t have a title, darn it) is currently scheduled for February 2009, not fall 2008.

The good news is, Kitty #6 is currently scheduled for March 2009. Shortest wait ever.

In the meantime, I have two Kitty related short stories due out in anthologies in 2008.

“Life is the Teacher” is about Emma, who at the end of “Washington” was turned into a vampire against her will. It will appear in “Hotter Than Hell,” edited by Kim Harrison and due out in June.

“Il Est Ne” is about Kitty, and another rogue werewolf she meets on her travels. It’ll be in an anthology of werewolf Christmas stories, “Wolfsbane and Mistletoe” edited by Charlaine Harris and due out in October.

    Dude, you’re in Wolfsbane and Mistletoe too? That’s great! I was going to buy it for the Rob Thurman story, but now I get to buy it for your story too! *happy dance*

    Sad to wait until 2009 for Kitty #5 but at least I’ll have W&M to tide me over. πŸ˜€ And back to back release? Totally cool.

    “Werewolf Christmas stories?”

    I like!

    And having Kitty in the mix will be a great Christmas bonus.

    Make sure you remind us (me!) about these when the release dates roll around.

    That sounds good! I’ll keep my eyes open for those two anthologies. They can be a good bridge for Kitty 5 and 6.

  4. Parilese Says:

    That sounds great, I love that idea of two books and it will be worth the wait!!! I will read the latest one soon and inform all of my Ghoulies about it on my website! Titles? Mmm how about something like
    Kitty and the Right of Passage??? I have no clue, it just came to me. Maybe territory old and new is the inspiration for that. πŸ™‚

    I see that you have several “KITTY” short stories. Will any of them be put in one single little book?? I’m a huge fan. I’d love to have All of “Kitty’s” early adventures!! PLEASE!

    I finaly managed to find Silver bullet in a UK book shop. A big comic/SF shop had shipped some in but wouldn’t take the book tokens I got for Christmas ! However, the lovely man at Waterstones has orderd a copy for me and let me use my tokens. I’ll finaly be able to start reading it on Friday !

    Hooray! Yay, lovely bookstore people.

    To answer questions: have no fear, you’ll probably get sick of me reminding you of these releases.

    And I’d love to do a short story collection. It’s on my list of “things to do.” Be patient. One of these days…

  8. Thomas Says:

    Yay! I’ll have to look for the two anthologies when they come out.

    Too bad we don’t get any Kitty books this year, but it’s great that we get two books about a month apart next year. I’m sure I’ll eat both of them up.

  9. UFR Says:

    Sad that we have to wait longer for the next Kitty book, but I am looking forward to picking up both anthologies. Can’t wait! πŸ˜€
