Working on it. At the present, very close to a finished first draft. Expected publication 2020 or 2021. No, there is not yet a title, but I’ll let the world know when I’ve finally thought of one.
How do you pronounce your last name?
Koo-wang. Like King Kong, but King Kwong. (Not KwAYYNG.)
Is THE POPPY WAR part of a trilogy?
Yes, the Poppy Wars trilogy. There’s one more book left to write. I knew exactly how the last scene would end when I started writing the first book, so no need to worry about a series without a conclusion 🙂
Where can I get a signed book?
I sign stock occasionally at bookstores when I’m invited (and sometimes by stealth when I’m not invited) and update readers on social media when I do. Same goes for panels, readings, and launch events. For reasons relating to personal security and customs fees, I don’t sign and send back books mailed to my personal address, even if you pay for postage–sorry.
I’d love to be kept up to date on new releases. Is there a newsletter I can subscribe to?
Yes! Here’s the thing–I don’t have the time or technological inclination to do one of those fancy MailChimp things with pretty formatting. What I can do is collect email addresses of anyone interested into a mailing list that I will notify, probably only once or twice a year, about new projects coming out. All you have to do is enter your address into this Google Form. I will only ever use your email to give you a heads up on stuff I’m publishing, and this list will never be shared with anyone except me.
