I'm also working on Book I of the Garnier family saga (also untitled so far), and I can tell already that it's got a bit of a different flavor to it. I'm excited about both projects.
I've been fortunate to be included in some of Brandi Granett's latest HuffPo pieces:
"6 Pieces of Writing Advice From First-Time Writers over 40" and "Four Great Ways to Find Indie Books You'll Love."
That's about all of the news I have to share right now; I'll be writing like crazy in a week, so this week is all about getting some chapter outlines down so I can just roll.
