Matt King

author of The Circle War series

As I look into my crystal ball...

Even though I still have one more book to write in The Circle War series, I'm already starting to map out The Next Big Thing once I finish. The idea all along was to have the events of The Circle War seed an ongoing series of superhero stories, all told in the same universe. The books would be solo adventures--some told on the same world, some from different worlds--although I reserve the right to bring the different characters together at some point in an Avengers-like team-up.

I have a pretty good idea what the first story is going to be. I won't spill the plot points yet, but I can tell you that it's going to have a female protagonist. You should also know that Ms. Marvel is one of my favorite superheroes. Not saying those two things are related, but...they kinda are.

Yes, I know it's fancasting. Hush.

I'm already pretty excited about it. I want to start. I'm ready to start. Still more work to do first, though. On that note...

The third book in The Circle War series now has a working title: Ascension. I can't wait to misspell that a million times over the next two years. As for why I chose that particular name, you'll understand more after you read The Last Winter, but like all my titles, it carries a double meaning.

I actually broke ground on Ascension this morning while taking up valuable real estate at the downtown Starbucks. Huzzah! Let the writing and rewriting begin.
