Dragonslayer 2 Cover Reveal

I realise Dragonslayer isn’t out yet, but this has worked its way out into the internet, so I thought I’d do a quick title and cover reveal for the second part of the Dragonslayer trilogy.

First up, the title – Knight of the Silver Circle.

I was going to call it Chevalier of the Silver Circle, for reasons that will be obvious when you read Dragonslayer (or The Frontier Lord, which you can get a free digital copy of if you sign up for my newsletter here), but it took up too much space on the cover (and obscured too much of the truly magnificent cover art) so I wanted to go for something a little more compact. And so ‘chevalier’ becomes ‘knight’. I bet you didn’t think that was how the naming process works!

So, without further ado, here is the cover!

I’m also delighted to announce that Knight of the Silver Circle is already available for preorder! You can grab a copy here:

Amazon US

Amazon UK

I hope everyone (in the northern hemisphere) is enjoying the lengthening days, and the improving weather!

I just wanted to remind everyone about the preorder bonus for Dragonslayer, the original and never before seen short story, The Drake of White Peak. The preorder page can be found here:

I’m not sure what happens to the preorder link after 1 July – it’s entirely possible that it will self destruct, although I can neither confirm nor deny this. Once again, I’m very sorry but this is only open to people in the US and Canada.

Dragonslayer Preorder Bonus

As a preorder bonus for Dragonslayer, I wrote a short story exploring some of the lore of the old dragonslayers, the Chevaliers of the Silver Circle, that’s mentioned in The Dragonslayer trilogy. The Drake of White Peak is about one of the most legendary chevaliers, Valdamar, when he is still a young man setting off on his first dragon hunt.

The details on how to get your copy of The Drake of White Peak can be found over on the Macmillan website, which is here:

The Drake of White Peak is a fun story, with beautiful cover art by Jannis Mayr. You can get a look at Jannis’s step by step process of creating the cover at the link below, which is very cool to see.
