May 2007 now, I'm afraid (June in the US, and a different title, Thirteen).

But the manuscript wil certainly be finished by October :-)

Well, anyway I think I´m not going to finish Vellum until 2010. If I don´t die trying...

Yeah, sorry guys - it's been a rough year for me, and the book was proving tough to write even before that. Hope you'll think it's been worth the wait....

Nice to know you were crushed though, William - I'm taking that as a massive compliment.

There's a trick to Vellum, Javier - you have to just let go and let yourself float in it. The sense of the thing builds up in layers, you have to just enjoy each section for itself, allow it to settle in your mind and feel the narrative echoes build on each other, like different waves coming in on the same beach. I found the whole experience quite hypnotic, which is an unusual thing in a book with so much going on. I can't wait for Ink....

If I could read english as well as you speak spanish...

But there´s one thing that is true. Every line of Vellum I understand is a joy. It´s a great book but very painful for someone that read english not so well.

"Hope you'll think it's been worth the wait.... "

I hope so.
