So, I formally teased the 2nd Wanderers novel– a sequel– back when I dropped the fresh TV news about it, and now its time to speak about the deal that got us there.
Del Rey has actually kindly fallen for the trap once again and chose to re-up with me for a brand-new 3 book offer. That includes Wayward (the Wanderers sequel), a new book called The Orchard (described as “the dark history of a little town, apple growing, and American manifest destiny”), and a third SECRET AS-YET-TO-BE-ANNOUNCED book.
For releases, that suggests:
Summertime 2021: The Book of Accidents
Summer season 2022: Wayward
Summer 2023: The Orchard
Sometime 2024: Secret Book
Once again, thanks.
And yes, this is all just a plan to guarantee that my apple purchases are tax-deductible.
” ITS RESEARCH,” I inform my accounting professional, apple juice soaking my beard.
And thanks too to readers, due to the fact that honestly, I always said there d just be a Wanderers follow up if both there was a story there to inform (meaning, I found out what that story was), and if sales of the book necessitated it. The sales performed in truth necessitate it (whew), and I really thought about the story from snout-to-tail on the first plane flight on my book tour in July 2019 (keep in mind book trips?).
An interesting little bit of inside baseball when it comes to publishing–.
They noted that book sales around the 2016 election were unsteady, in part the presumption being its really difficult to get social media and continual media attention on a brand-new book. Everything is election, election, election. They stated, “Were moving the book,” and at first I was truthfully a little circumspect about that, however then trusted their judgment.
Anyway! So thems the news.
See you in Ouray. Black Swan states hi.
All who wander are not lost.

So, initially we spoke about having The Orchard be the next book after TBOA, okay? And after that have Wayward in 2022. But since TBOA moved, we chose to stagnate Wayward and still leave it in location– which meant that ended up being the next book, with the Evil Apples book managed to 2023.
Needless to state, this is truly great, and Del Rey has been a wonderful publisher– and Tricia Narwani a most excellent editor. Her edit letters are a thing of vicious beauty. My agent, Stacia Decker, is worthy of thanks too for not only helping broker the offer however likewise being an outstanding editor herself. Because of their combined efforts, my books are 4007% much better.
