I actually thought the second phase of the birding tourism project was never going to take off, but it has, so I have just spent two days back in the rat-race (read: Kuala Lumpur traffic jams) attending meetings and thinking of everything except writing the next book.
Having a centre core around my heart that is all written words and plot-lines, naturally I want to get started on the next one. I've written a couple of hundred words of what will possibly be a duology called "The Hidden Kingdom". But alas, it will have to wait...
If I get a reading slot at Worldcon, I probably could be bribed into doing a reading of what I have written so far of this new book. It is set in the Havenstar world of a disintegrating land, peopled by citizens desperately trying to find a way to hold their world together. This time it's a different country with a different solution for keeping the Unmaker at bay, and a different set of characters.
