Reference For the Future: Mark 2.0
I figured it was time for a new one of these, since there's been a lot of changes since the last one was accurate.
And I'll stress that these are just the books that I intend to be over 50k words, not the novellas or shorts.
And Everything is subject to change. Everything. And will, many times.
Remember: the phoenixes were supposed to be in a novella, James was supposed to kill Stef in book #7 (and have it play out entirely differently) and yanno...every other massive change I've made. :P
There's one change to the layout that I've been very stubborn to accept, but I've been talked into it, and that's to split the Angelpie books off into their own sub-series. It makes things a lot less complicated, especially for new readers, and will make numbering less of a pain, I think, we'll have to work on it.
So the new layout will look something like:
Main Series - Arc 1 - Mirror
*1 - Mirrorfall
*2 - Mirrorheart
*3 - Mirrorshades
*4 - Mirrorfinish (maybe...well, whatever I rename Oubliette)
Main Series - Arc 2 - War
*1 - Awoken (placeholder title) - deals with Reynolds
*2 - Dusk (placeholder title) - I'm going to let you read the title and WMG in the comments
*3 - War (placeholder title) - the war, part 1
*4 - Angel Nation (placeholder title), the war, part 2
I'm only listing four books here, but I think there'll be another one or two added, to further deal with the stuff that leads up to the war. (Arcs aren't going to be a standard size).
Main Series - Arc 3 - ???
*1 - Bad Penny (placeholder title) - This will probably be a mix of two stories I was going to do, a caper story with a literal cat thief (imagine Sam Neill's cat burglar from The Simpsons crossed with Brannigan Kincade from Doctor Who's Gridlock), a missing mummy and a much more serious plot about money that can pass on subliminal messages and provoke people towards certain actions.
Consider these placeholder spots for the moment as I'm not sure what this arc leads up to, but I know there's time before we head into...
[ETA - Arc 3 may end up being centred around the new gods/domains (see Cookiemas 2011), and be a sort of old magic vs new magic arc].
Main Series - Arc 4 - Future
And I can't say much at all about this. I'll say that it's sort of a Marvel 2099 approach where a lot of it actually takes place in the future.
Interspersed through the main series will be the Magpie Court books (taking suggestions on the Angelpie subseries name).
*? - I have an urge to flesh out the chibi!Mags flashbacks and do a Maggie book, it would probably be fairly short, but it could be a nice place to start.
*1 - The Grey Edge (Arc 1)
*2 - Grey Crown (Arc 1/2)
*3 - Book I'm writing with Bufi (Arc 2)
*4 - Germelshausen (placeholder title) (Arc 2)
*5 - This is probably in the wrong place, but there'll be a book where we meet Mags' brother Bennefree and follow his attempts to clone unicorns. (Arc 2/3)
[Fairyland/Lost/Madchester/wild fae trilogy starring a nerd and a whore]
*1 - [no placeholder title]
*2 - [no placeholder title]
*3 - [no placeholder title]
*Marriage in Manchester - Madhe's son gets married.
Outside of Main Series [All titles are placeholders]
*Bastion – basically, my love letter to the 80s fantasy that I grew up on.
*The Enders - massive excuse to write Doctor Who-style stories, may end up being a series of short/novellas or a few larger books.
*The Little Mermaid – again, not actual/working title, just accurate. Lesbian interpretation of the story starring Milla from the Hyde Agency (the people who watch Madchester).
*Carnival - about a minor court that a mix of the Lost and the Mad
*Evacuee - this may end up as a novella, it's the story of Dorian during WW2 and how he came to adopt Jonowoi.
*Goblins - the goblins need a new leader, so they invent a prophecy about a princess.
And this is just what's in my head right now, I know I'm forgetting books-
-goes to add another-
-and I'll add more in the future, but at least you know RC isn't going anywhere soon. :D
