11/20/2005 Entry: "New Bujold announced"
Lois McMaster Bujold has sold THE SHARING KNIFE to Eos/HarperCollins. The book, which is to be published as a duology, takes place in a new world and is about "an unlikely romance and the intolerance the couple encounter, as well as battles and skirmishes against evil beings that rise from the ground". The first volume is planned for release sometime in the fall of 2006, and the second six to nine months later.
Since book is being split into two, Bujold is now trying to decide on the titles of the individual books. She's conducting a sort of market research on possible subtitles for the two volumes, which a Bujold list member put into a LiveJournal poll.
