During her Reddit AMA a few days ago, Naomi shared that she is working on a new novel!

What is it? This is how she opened her Ask Me Anything:

“Hi all, I’m Naomi Novik, the author of Uprooted and the Temeraire series, which just concluded with League of Dragons. I’ve also got a short story called Spinning Silver, inspired by the Rumplestiltskin fairytale, coming out this very month in The Starlit Wood anthology, which I’m working right now on expanding into a novel.”

Sounds like another magical tale in the vein of Uprooted. I’m super excited about that!

To get an early look at it, read Spinning Silver in The Starlit Wood, the new anthology publishing on October 18th!
