I'm hoping we have a title for my upcoming polar bear book. The working title had been Ice Bear but the marketing folks wanted something more lyrical, so my editor came up with The Ice Wanderer: A Natural and Unnatural History of Polar Bears. I love it; I think it conveys everything I want to convey. We'll see now whether it gets the final green light.

Unfortunately, it looks as if, whatever it is called, it will be a spring 2010 title rather than fall 2009. As hard as I tried, I simply couldn't make up the time I lost with being in the UK with Dad last year. It was all becoming too rushed, and time too compressed, and even if I hit all the necessary targets, it wouldn't be possible to have finished books ready before December. So instead we'll go for April. At least it means I get to breathe a little.
