    Exclamation New Book!

    Sorry, but I'm too lazy to send an e-mail and it won't let me post in the news section . Terrouge did an interview with Brian Jacques and it says he finished writing Loamhedge, but he is also working on another book that is not in the Castaways or Redwall series! What could it be?!

    If I had to guess, I'd say he was referring to his autobiography, A Divvil of a Lad. Who knows, though? If it's a new fiction book and neither Redwall nor Dutchman, that would be great! I'll be keeping a close eye on this.

    Yes, that'd definitely be cool if he were writing another fiction book that wasn't Dutchman or Redwall! It'd be interesting to see what it was all about. And that's great that he's finished Loamhedge... I wonder what'll come next?

    If it were a new fiction book... wonder if it would be a new series or something like 7 Strange and Ghostly tales, I mean where that's the only book in it's "series".

    Well, if it's only one book, it's not a "series", it's a "book".

    Beats me why he'd suddenly call the biography a "secret" when he's spoken to Publishers Weekly about it already and confirmed its existence months ago on Redwall.org.

    Put me down for "new book" since he works so far in advance. I'd say he's done with Loam, TAC, Divvil, and is probably 3/4 of the way through the Redwall book after Loam and maybe 1/4 to 1/2 through this "new" book.

    Hmm..this is the first I've heard of it. If it's not A Devil of a Lad, I wonder what it is and what it's about? Well, whatever it is, I'm sure it'll be great. B.J. proved with Castaways that he can write great non-Redwall books as well.

    Wait a sec, where is the interview with Brian? I can't find it.

    It's not writing fast, Darkhood, it's writing ahead. Brian is, traditionally, one and a half books ahead of what's published. Triss was completed before Tagg hit the shelves and he had at least half of The Angel's Command written by that time and was into Loamhedge, too. He's got a nice solid lead to work with.

    Well, it's rather nice that he writes ahead, so Redwall fans don't have to go waiting for a couple extra years for the next book in the series to come out.... :\

    I can see you never watched Cardcaptors dark-Dark. Hey, can I call you that?

    Anyway, that's one of the cards in the show, and it's called... The Big. It can turn objects... big. And I even said its name in the picture! And it took me 3 tries to post this. :\
