#### Good News Part 1

I come with glad tidings! Harper Voyager have just acquired the third book in The Vagrant trilogy. It’ll be called The Seven, and will follow on from The Malice which comes out next year.*

Here’s a link to the Bookseller article for those of you who are interested.

I have two main reactions to this. Firstly, joy:

At the risk of sounding horribly cheesy, it really has been a dream come true to be published this year and I am absolutely thrilled that the dream is going to continue.

Secondly, relief:

You see, for a while now I’ve had ideas for a third book and I was terrified that I wasn’t going to get a chance to tell the whole story. I cannot wait to get started on book three!

Now for a quick round of gratitude before I move on to the second piece of news.

A big thanks to the marvellous Natasha Bardon for continuing to believe in the series and to Juliet Mushens who is, as ever, awesome.

And a vast, galaxy crushing (and possibly slightly awkward) hug of gratitude +5 to all of you who have been so supportive of The Vagrant so far, through buying a copy, talking about it, reviewing it, tweeting it, posting about it and whatever else the cool kids do for books they like nowadays.

Without you, this wouldn’t have happened and I’d be a bitter drunk rather than a happy one.

#### Good News Part 2

In addition to The Seven, Harper Voyager have also commissioned me to write two short stories set in the world of the Vagrant! Details and release dates to follow but for now here are some potential titles**:

The Dark Goat Rises

Goat Hard

Ancillary Goat

Goat of Thorns

Goats Assemble

The G-Team

UPDATE: People have been adding their own suggestions in the comments. Feel free to add your own. There might be a little prize for the best one…

ANOTHER UPDATE: I'll pick a winner and announce it on the blog on the 21st October. So you have until midnight on the 20th to enter.

Current mood:

*If that was confusing the order is:

The Vagrant

The Malice

The Seven

**Actual title and appearance of goats TBC.

Peter! Couldn't be happier for you. Let me try to help celebrate…
