Many authors start their web pages with biographical information, but frankly, I've led a very boring life. (That's not a complaint. "May you live in interesting times." really is a curse, and "May you lead an interesting life." is even worse.) When I go to my favorite authors' web sites the thing I'm really looking for is; What's Coming Out Next!
We have a release date for Thieves’ War! (Or possibly Thief’s War—feel free to drop me an email (email@example.com) and weigh in on which title you think is better. But whatever it’s called, Knight & Rogue book 4 is scheduled to come out in January of 2014! Yes, I know I said fall of this year, and the delay is all my fault. I found I had to write the next book, Scholar’s Plot, in order to revise Thieves’ War properly. But it’s now in my micro-publisher’s hands, and its production schedule is in the works. Hooray!
As you know, all 4 of my early, out-of-print novels now available as ebooks, from all major ebook stores. And A Matter of Profit, The Wizard Test, Navohar and Songs of Power should be available in POD (print on demand) trade paperbacks “soon...very soon.” (A quote that totally dates me, but if you haven’t seen the movie Romancing the Stone you really should. It’s delightful.) I know this last statement has been here a long time, but it really should be soon. And it looks like I’ll get my rights for both Goblin Wood and The Prophecy back sometime in the reasonable future—so maybe they’ll get out as ebooks sometime too. But at the earliest, that will be late next year, and maybe even later.I’m going to get The Fixer out eventually too—not sure how or when yet, as I’m now mostly focused on getting the last three Knight & Rogue books out. Fixer is set in the Goblin universe, but 400 years later. They’re trying to settle their version of the first world war with a great peace conference—and assassins are trying to disrupt it, and framing the heroine’s grandmother for the murders. I hope it won’t disappoint my Goblin fans—all the characters from the previous novels have been dead for four centuries, so it shouldn’t surprise you that they’re not in this story! But it does deal with one final question Goblin War left open—what happened to the descendants of the Chanduri.
If you want to follow my progress on these books, you can check out the On my Radar—Work postings on my new facebook fan page. I’ve put off getting on Facebook forever—and now I’m really enjoying it and can’t imagine why I resisted for so long. Amazing how often it works out like that.
