I was recently reading the sticky post about EBD's books and fill-ins and came across some fill-ins and sequels that haven't been published yet. They are marked as being in the pipeline (as of 2007 which is almost ten years ago):

*The Year In Between by Pat Willimott, currently being written. Fills the gap in Exile.
*A Chalet School Partnership by Lesley Green, currently being written. Nell moves to the Oberland to head Welsen, breaking her long professional partnership with Hilda.
*A Chinese Adventure by Ray, currently being written. Tells Gay's story before she came to the Chalet School. Will be published by GGB around 2009, hopefully.
*More New Beginnings by Heather Paisley, continuing her already-published sequel, 'New Beginnings'.
*Joey and Robin in India - a different version of their experience, this time by the GGB press.
*Jack of the Chalet School, set after Prefects.

I'm wondering if anyone has any updates on these? Are they still in the process of being written? Have they been abandoned? Will any of them be published soon?

Sadly, Pat Willimott passed away some time ago.

I don't know about the others though.

I'm sorry to hear about Pat. I really enjoyed her 'Chalet School Librarian' especially since I'm a librarian myself.

I hope some others will know more about the other titles.

I think someone on this board is completing Pat Willimott's book, can't remember who, but it's been mentioned somewhere here quite recently.

Lesley and I have been asked by Pat's family to edit the book for publication. She had finished it. We are just polishing it. It will be published in time, if Pat's family decide to do so, but don't expect it anytime soon.

GGB's India is still in progress. For various reasons (mostly to do with the challenge of comparing the real India to the India in EBD's mind) it is taking longer than expected.
