A lot of questions ...
1. The third book with Crown has not yet been decided. It's a player to be named later type of deal. I won't want to write PANDEMIC, the third book in the INFECTED series, for quite some time.
2. If they went with NOCTURNAL, then yes, it's possible it could be out for April. Unlikely, but possible.
3. EARTHCORE and ANCESTOR are going to get a release from Crown. 2009 or 2010. They will be rewritten. Call me a Spielberg, I just can't pass up a chance to make the final product better. Might be hardcover, we're not sure yet.
4. THE STARTER may be the next book I work on after NOCTURNAL and CONTAGIOUS are finished. THE CRYPT is a different kind of book, so I can do two at once.
5. MT. FITZROY needs to wait until the re-write of EARTHCORE, so don't expect that until 2010 or 2011. Sorry!
