So let’s check-in with Fitz’s creator and see what she’s up to!
CHECK-IN INTERVIEW: ROBIN HOBB
Shawn Speakman: A few months ago, you announced that FitzChivalry would be returning, to excited eagerness by fantasy readers everywhere. FOOL’S ASSASSIN is scheduled to publish August 12, 2014. Where are you at in the process of its publication? Still editing? Copyediting? Proofing? Finished?
Shawn Speakman: Will you and Del Rey Books be releasing an early excerpt of the book? And what other goodies can we expect until the book is published? Convention appearances? Giveaways? Tour? Where should fans be watching to learn of these things?
Shawn Speakman: How does work go on Book 2? Got a title for it that you can share?
I can already hear the squeeing from all of you! Fool’s Assassin is coming August 12th! But it’s always nice to know that the author is already hard at work on the sequel and to get a title—Fool’s Quest! It’s going to be a great summer for reading and—for me, at least—Fool’s Assassin is one of the strongest reasons!
Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb publishes August 12th!
