Master of the World, Book 2 of my Worldshapers series, doesn’t come out until September, but you can get a sneak peek right now: over on my Edward Willett website, I’ve posted the first two chapters (with the caveat that final copyediting and page proofing has not yet been done, so there might be some differences between these and the finished book).
You can pre-order Master of the World now from these fine online sources:
Here’s the opening sentence:
Buffeted by swirling winds, I clung to the rope ladder lifting me from the mysterious—and rapidly disintegrating—island in the ocean below toward the giant flying ship in the sky above, and reflected on what a lousy week I was having.
Worldshaper, Book 1 in the series, came out in audiobook at the end of February. It’s also currently available in trade paperback and ebook formats: it will come out in mass-market paperback in August, just a month before Master of the World.
It had some great reviews, including a starred review from Publishers Weekly:
“This rollicking secondary-world contemporary fantasy opens with a bang…(the characters) grapple with the ethics of changing the world, the question of what makes people ‘real’ when the worldshapers can change everything about them with nothing more than a thought, and the need to save the universe. Willett…meticulously includes small details that make the constantly changing scenery feel solid and real…This novel sets up a fascinating, fluctuating universe with plenty of room for growth for the main characters, and readers will eagerly join their journey.” – Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Willett’s series starter is fun, quirky, and highly enjoyable, nicely laying the groundwork for future volumes.” – Booklist

I’m working on the proposal for Book 3 even as I post this! (Well, more or less.)
