The Adamantine Palace is in print in UK/Australia/NZ/SA, France, USA, Germany, Australia and Poland. The King of the Crags is in UK/Australia/NZ/SA, France and US bookshops now, on its way to Poland I guess in 2012. Germany at some point this century in 2012 also. The third book of the first trilogy, The Order of the Scales is out in the UK, the US and France and The Black Mausoleum is now out in the UK in mass-market edition, Dragon Queen is out in trade. The Splintered Gods is going through copy-edit and I’m working on the first draft of The Silver King. I have no news of any overseas publishers for the second series (sorry, US fans)

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.
