It’s almost the end of August. That means only one more month to go until the release of ‘Oracle’s Fire’, the third and last installment of ‘Chronicles of the Tree’. Three books released in just over year: what a journey this has been!
Recently I was talking to my editor, Stephanie Smith, about what might be done to mark the event. Of course you’ll have the usual business of me jumping up and down saying, “Lookee, new book!” which you may or may not be thoroughly sick of at this point. Be that as it may…
Stephanie’s idea was that I publish some background material to do with the world of the Tree on this blog, in the month leading up to the October 1 release. Her suggestion, which I think is a very good one, is to make available a new and improved Glossary, similar to the one appearing at the end of ‘Tymon’s Flight’ but extended to include more little nuggets of information. I’ll also be adding new entries with previously unpublished details about the historical background, customs and culture of the World Tree.
So, starting from September the 1st or thereabouts, I’ll be posting a new entry per day, perhaps one letter per day, we’ll see. I hope you’ll enjoy the new Dictionary of the Tree.
