Crucible of Gold Finished!

Naomi has turned in the first draft for Crucible of Gold, the seventh book in the Temeraire series!

There is still a lot of work to do though. Naomi is currently editing the book with her editor which will take some time. There is cover art to commission and receive. There is the book to layout. Publicity. Marketing. Etc. Right now, with all of that added together, we are currently looking at a tentative release date sometime in Spring 2012!

Beware, cuteness ahead! Along with news the first draft is finished, Naomi wrote:

Also you could post this if you wanted to. :) Evidence with her very own dragon, courtesy of a Temeraire fan!

Baby Dragon! Look out world!

I don’t know about you, but that makes me want my own dragon pet!
