Here’s a picture of the cover, done by Kat Lunoe. Doesn’t it look great? Magical Identity is currently being edited. I had to switch editors, which pushed the book release date back to March of 2012. However I’m not presenting at Pantheacon this year, so it actually works out that the book will be out a bit later. It gives me time to finish revisions and add in some more content that I’ve developed since I finished the first draft.
I’m reading the very last book I need to read for research. I’ve actually taken a little break from it, because I’ve spent the last couple months reading books I’d found out about that could be relevant to the book. All that reading reminds me of graduate school, where I’d literally spend up to 12 hours reading (they’d have preferred 16 but I believed in having fun time…it’s not an approved academic activity however).
I’m really excited about almost having this book done. I’ll be doing radio interviews soon about it and just knowing that finally, after so many years I’ve got another book on magic coming out…That has me pumped.It might be the last book for a little while as well. I have ideas for other books, but I’m very much at a pre-research phase with those books. However, I think Magical Identity will be my best book yet, especially because it deals with themes of space and time as well as neuroscience.
