Dayton Ward to write post-Fall TNG novel (mid 2015)

Dayton Ward has revealed on his Twitter account that he will be writing a post-Fall TNG novel.

For those who might be interested, my next project will be a Star Trek: The Next Generation novel, set after The Fall, due out late 2015.

Thanks for posting a link to Dayton Ward's twitter page. I'm certainly interested in seeing how the events of The fall will be continued in future novels.

...is it normal to contract a novel nearly two years in advance?

Late 2015 is, like, forever away.

Probably me being over optimistic but possibly an indicator they are starting to make some solid plans for the 50th?

He has corrected himself on Twitter:

Correction to previous tweet: The TNG book I'm writing will be published closer to "mid 2015" rather than "late 2015." Plan accordingly

@trampledamage: could you change the title accordingly, my time window to do so seems already have ended.

Done

I like it when requests for me to fix something come in while I'm reading the forum, makes me look efficient

Cool. Hopefully I'll be caught up on TNG by then.

Sounds like a great direction to take the TNG stories in.

Thanks.

More "info" from Dayton's monthly writing wrap-up on his blog:

Pale Blue Dot - This is the title they stuck on the contract for my next tie-in novel project, pending my coming up with something better. I signed those contracts back in January and I received back a copy of the executed agreement and the first portion of my advance, so I suppose it’s safe to say at this point that it will be a Star Trek: The Next Generation novel, set after the events of The Fall. Basically, everything I set up at the end of Peaceable Kingdoms to give the next writer in line something of a clean slate? Yeah, that “next writer” turned out to be me. If I’d known this while writing that book, I’d have set things up differently, with Picard and Chen going off to open a private detective agency on Wrigley’s Pleasure Planet, or something. As it happens, the Enterprise-E is now heading out into “the unknown” for some good old-fashioned seeking out of new life and new civilizations and whatnot. Live and learn, I guess. Anyway, my outline for this thing is due to my editor on or about March 17th, with a projected manuscript delivery around Labor Day, and publication at some point in mid 2015 or so. Once I figure out what the book will be about, I’ll let you know.

Cool. It'll be nice to get a good old-fashioned exploration novel.

From Dayton's twitter:

Rec'd approval on the outline for what will be my next novel: ARMAGEDDON'S ARROW, featuring Picard & Co and set after STAR TREK: THE FALL.
https://twitter.com/daytonward/statu...91023645847552


ETA: Additional info from Dayton's Facebook:

A friend on Twitter pointed out that the title has a TOS feel to it. That's intentional. I've been wanting to do a TNG story that has a bit of a TOS feel to it, with Picard and the gang running into some weird alien stuff the way Kirk did every other week. Or, something.

No promises, but I'm not ruling out Picard delivering a flying leg kick.

It is mid 2014 unless I've stumbled into a time machine

If you check out the beginning of the thread, it was started in early 2014, and Ward initially said the novel was coming out in late-2015 before correcting himself and saying mid-2015. So we were initially in the two year range.
