Last week ECW Press put out the official press release announcing Kevin J. Anderson and Neil Peart's new novel Clockwork Lives - the follow-up to their best-selling Clockwork Angels novel. Clockwork Lives (as in the plural of life) will feature minor characters from Clockwork Angels and expand on their stories. From the press release:

... Anderson and Peart have returned to their colorful creation [of Clockwork Angels] in CLOCKWORK LIVES, a steampunk Canterbury Tales that explores the lives of secondary characters in CLOCKWORK ANGELS and introduces a new protagonist. Marinda Peake is a woman with a quiet, perfect life in a small village. Her alchemist father's will leaves Marinda a mysterious inheritance: a blank book that she must fill with other people's stories-and ultimately her own. Styled after Marinda's book, the ECW volume itself will be a beautiful homage to traditional bookmaking. A limited-run collector's edition will also be available.

Anderson also posted a portion of the first chapter to his blog which you can check out here. Earlier today he released a video of himself discussing the origins of the novel which you can view below or on YouTube at this location. The 304-page book is now available for pre-order from Amazon with an expected release date in September of 2015. The book's cover has not been released yet but should be available soon.
