I wanted to wish everyone a happy New Year (belatedly!) and I hope everyone had a great Christmas.
Thanks again for all your kind words and support last year. It’s very much appreciated! After a pretty hectic year getting Wolf of the North all finished up and on the virtual shelves, I’m really looking forward to a new year and a new project, details of which I’ll be able to share in the next couple of weeks. It’s always great fun starting with a blank canvas, so this stage is probably my favourite part of the process—that short window of time before you’ve painted yourself into a corner!
This marks the end of the Wolf of the North trilogy, which has been a pretty incredible experience for me to say the least. The support that readers have given me over the past year has been both overwhelming and humbling, and I appreciate that more than I can ever say. I only hope that I’m able to continue producing books that you enjoy reading, but rest assured I’ll be doing my very best!
It’s always a bit of a surprise to wake up to the news that something you’re involved in has made a list or is nominated for an award, but it’s always a nice one. In this instance, I can’t say I’m quite as surprised as usual, as Simon Vance did such a superb job narrating The Wolf of the North, for him to be nominated for Audiobook Narration – Fantasy, Best Voiceover for this book is very well deserved. Fingers crossed that he can take home the top spot!
Wolf of the North 3 – The Blood Debt will be out on Monday 2 October. If everything goes to plan, the paperback will be out on the same day as the kindle version, which is a first for me! I really hope you all enjoy it! The audiobook will follow on a little later, and should be released in January 2018.
The Society of the Sword trilogy is now available in audio. Derek Perkins narrates this trilogy, giving it a slightly different flavour to the Wolf of the North, but does an equally superb job, and makes this setting his own. If you’ve enjoyed any of my books, audio or otherwise, I think you’ll really like this one. It’s all three parts in one volume, so you can binge through the entire trilogy in one go!
I’ve been particularly looking forward to this release, as enough time has passed for me to forget a lot about Society of the Sword (Wolf of the North is still a bit recent for me to revisit it!), so I get to listen to it as close to fresh as it can be when you’re the one who wrote it!
Hey folks! I’m doing an Ask Me Anything over on Reddit today, so if you’ve a burning question you need answered, if it’s within my sphere of competence (small sphere!), I’ll do my best to answer. Here’s the direct link to it:
Jorundyr’s Path – Wolf of the NorthBook 2 has been released today and is now available in Audiobook. As with Book 1, it’s been narrated by the excellent Simon Vance, and he’s put in another superb performance! You can get your hands on a copy at the links below:
I’ve got some firmer dates for upcoming releases for my various offerings, so I wanted to share them with you.
First up will be the audio of Jorundyr’s Path. It’s slated for a 1 August 2017 release, so less than a month off already – how time flies!
The Society of the Sword trilogy will be released in audio as an omnibus in mid September.
Finally, the final part of the Wolf of the North trilogy will be out in digital and print early this October, with audio to follow not too long after.
As always, you can subscribe to my mailing list here for a notification as to when things are coming out. I try to limit my mails to release announcements, so you don’t need to worry about me filling up your inboxes!
I hope everyone’s having a great summer so far, and for those of you in or from the US, have a great 4th of July!
This is a quick announcement to let you all know that The Wolf of the North is now available in Audiobook format! It’s been a long time coming, but I’m really excited that it’s finally here, and I’m delighted with how good it’s turned out. Narrator Simon Vance is a perfect fit for the job, and has put in a superb performance. If you like audiobooks, I think you’ll really enjoy his performance!
