On January 13, 2009, Peter landed a new literary agent who took a keen interest in a fantasy series he'd conceived several years prior. Over the course of the next few weeks, Peter and his agent began pulling together a package they intended to shop to New York publishers. As Peter prepared materials, including this website, his agent contacted Tom Doherty (publisher at Tor Books) with little more than an early synopsis. His thought was to either interest one of the best fantasy publishers in the industry, or get early feedback to refine the materials he and Peter were putting together. Within hours Mr. Doherty requested the manuscript.
On February 18th (less than two weeks after receiving the book) a Tor editor phoned Peter to discuss the series. The following day, February 19th, a three-book offer was made on THE VAULT OF HEAVEN. THE UNREMEMBERED, book one of the series, is scheduled for an April 2011 release, with yearly releases likely for subsequent volumes of the series.
