Big news: Company Town will be published by Tor!

Yes, it’s true. Company Town has been acquired by Tor Books. Angry Robot will no longer be publishing it. I explain how this happened at io9:

Ashby tells io9 that her editor had left Angry Robot before editing Company Town, and meanwhile the book was delayed — so she informed the authors who were blurbing it that there was no rush, after all. One of those would-be blurbers offered to show the book to his editor at Tor instead, and Tor had a spin on the book that Ashby liked.

I’m really excited about this, but I know you might have questions. If you have any more that I didn’t think of here, then I’ll try to answer them in the comments.

When will the book be out?

I’m not sure. We’re working on a date, but it looks like Fall 2015 might work.

Will my pre-order still work?

Doubtful. I will provide a pre-order link as soon as Tor generates one.

What will your next book from Tor be about?

I have some ideas! (I have too many ideas, actually. The trouble is sorting through them and finding the right one.) First I have to finish Rev, for Angry Robot, and a bunch of stories for various anthologies. But odds are it will be a standalone novel, probably set in the nearish future.

Will Rev: The Third Machine Dynasty be end of the Machine Dynasty series?

Yes. I have no plans to continue the series, either with Angry Robot or with anyone else.

Will it be your final book with Angry Robot?

Yes.

    Fall 2015 is pretty quick turnaround for a major publisher (which makes me happy)
