Updates – and Pre-Orders

11 May

It’s been a hard few days, but I have finally finished the first draft of Knife Edge¸ which is pretty much the direct sequel to Favour The Bold.  I’m not sure when it will be released yet, as I have editing and suchlike to do, but I’m hoping for early June.

Debt of Honor, the next Angel in the Whirlwind book, launches on the 19th (or thereabouts) of May.  If you want to pre-order, feel free to hop over to the Amazon page.

We’re still working on getting Fantastic Schools I up, but it should be soon.

My current plan is to write Oathkeeper, Schooled in Magic 20, next, followed by The Lady Heiress (Zero 8).  The planned title for Knife Edge is The Halls of Montezuma.

And, in other news, my friend Jagi Lamplighter recently released The Unbearable Heaviness of Remembering (Books of Unexpected Enlightenment Book 5).  If you like SIM, why not check out the series?  Book One is free!

    pre-ordering for digital assets makes no sense form a customers perspective. if there was a shortfall in supply then it would make more sense

      Actually, I do it because then I don’t have to remember to go order it on the release date. It just comes automagically! It’s a matter of convenience.

      It makes perfect sense. I order, am not charged until it is shipped, and do not have to remember to look for it’s ‘now released’ announcement’. Admittedly, I have been waiting several years for Volume 4 of Washburn’s Europe in flames book about the second Martian invasion.

    Lamplighter’s Rachel Griffin series is worth reading. Don’t be put off by its age rating – the protagonist is hyper-intelligent and pleasant to follow, the number of mysteries for both the protagonists and for the readers (the chief of which being “What the hell happened to monotheism!?”) is large, and the action is so tight-packed that the first book takes place over the course of just a few days in-universe. And the whole thing has this Alice in Wonderland kind of crazy vibe.

    Holy cow. At some point I got the first book in that Lamplighter series… and apparently never got around to reading it. Does anyone else struggle with organizing books on kindle? Kindle definitely doesn’t organize anything like my brain works.

      I don’t “organize” on the Kindle.

      I purchase Kindle eBooks and convert them to ePub.

      Using Calibre to convert them, I can add the series name & number to the name of the ebook.

      So that book (on the reader) shows up as “Rachel Griffin 01: The Unexpected Enlightenment Of Rachel Griffin”.

      It may be possible for Calibre to do the same with the Kindle book so it shows up in the Kindle reader the same way.

      I discovered that I actually read the first 2 of her books in this series in 2018.
      They are written for a younger audience, and as such have more simplistic plots and they do not have the dept of world development that SIM does.
      But I did enjoy them.

    Yes! Can’t weight for Debt to Honor. Good to see Angel on the Whirlwind back.
