Wheel of Time update.
« on: February 15, 2012, 07:01:26 AM »
Maybe you just want to know when the final Wheel of Time book is going to come out. Well, Brandon has finished the first draft of A MEMORY OF LIGHT and is in the revision stage. So far the progress bar (top left column on Brandon's website) is at 40% on the second draft, meaning that he's revised 144,000 out of 360,000 words. He's been turning it in in chunks to Harriet and Team Jordan, and they've already sent their notes back on the beginning of the book. He plans to finish the second draft later this month, and will almost immediately start working on the third draft according to Harriet and Team Jordan's editorial directions. This back-and-forth process will continue for several months, however long it needs to take to edit the book to perfection. Because we can't predict the time that will be required to whip this book into the shape it needs to be in, as befits the final book of the greatest fantasy epic of all time, Tor has not yet scheduled a firm publication date, but we can pretty much say at this point that it won't be released any earlier than late November. We should have a better idea after a couple more drafts are completed. Please bear with us.
