I have a funny Liberty Con story: My fellow authors and I were gathering for our Sunday panel last summer, proudly displaying our books so everyone could see what we’d written. Suddenly the author next to me sees The Wizard’s Way. His eyes go wide and starry (I may have imagined this) and he asks, “You wrote a book with Jacob Holo? Is that the same Jacob Holo that’s writing a book with David Weber?”
So now I am mildly famous by association by association, which is funny. But not actually the point of this story.

EXCITING NEWS! For the past year and a half, Jacob's been working on a novel collaboration with David Weber, and tonight we are pleased to announce that the ink is drying on the official contract! It's one thing to publish your own books; it's another thing entirely to have a chance to work with one of the authors who inspired your writing and then be picked up by your favorite publishing house. That said, enormous thanks goes to David Weber for giving this newbie a chance, and equally enormous thanks goes to Toni Weisskopf and Baen Books for this amazing opportunity.
By this point, it would be more correct to say that David and Jacob just signed a contract for the novel with Baen Books and are working on the final draft, so it will be happening later rather than sooner.
Until then, I imagine you probably want to know more about this mysterious book.
Once upon a time, Jacob told me he’d never write a time travel novel. Well, when David Weber asks you if you want to write a time travel novel with him, you change your mind. Unfortunately, we can’t reveal more than that until closer to the release, but rest assured, it’s a novel in which lots of things explode because, hello, look at the authors.
We don’t have a projected release date yet, but a perfect way to keep up with the book’s progress is to join our mailing list. More news of this exciting project will reach you as soon as we have it!
