In the contract that we recently received, they specified January 2012 as the release date of Percepliquis - but that contract was the first one we received and had a lot of boilerplate wording that Michael could not sign as is. Our agent is working on a counter contract so we are in the early phases of the negotiation process (even though the books are nearly complete - new covers, editing finished, ARC's ready and the like). If we get a contract that can be signed it will remain January 2012. If we can't agree...then it would be a lot sooner I really like Orbit and want to see the books put out through them...but we need to make sure that Michael's future writing would not be prohibited. For instance, the current non-compete clause would prevent any Riyria Revelations "prequels" or "sequels" from being produced. We'll keep you posted.
