December 15th: An interview with AJ Dalton
November 1st: Announcement: Historical Fiction novels for 2014-15
Book News: A Memory of Flames:
The Adamantine Palace is in print in UK/Australia/NZ/SA, France, USA, Germany and Poland and might be on its way to Bulgaria. The King of the Crags and The Order of the Scales are in UK/Australia/NZ/SA, France, Germany and US bookshops but NOT Poland for reasons beyond my control. The Black Mausoleum is now out in the UK in mass-market edition, Dragon Queen is out in trade. There are no overseas deals for these (you’re not as sorry about that as I am) but it should be possible to get them in the US. The Splintered Gods is through copy-edit and I’m working on the first draft of The Silver King.
Book News: The Thief-Taker’s Apprentice
The Thief-Taker’s Apprentice is out in the UK and Poland. Parts two and three, The Warlock’s Shadow, and The King’s Assassin, are out in the UK. Allegedly all three are available now in the US as both physical and e-book editions. Some left-over threads of the story are picked up in Dragon Queen.
