With the different route to publication that I’m taking with the Dragonslayer trilogy, partnering up with Tor, there are plenty of new experiences for me along the way. One of those is getting the occasional mention in trade press. It’s my first time being mentioned in one of these, so I thought I’d share it. You can take a look:
I’ve set up a group there also, which you can join to keep in the loop in the run up to Dragonslayer’s release on 2 July 2019. There’ll hopefully be giveaways, excerpts, and artwork reveals as we get closer to the big day, so that’ll be a good spot to keep up to date with those!
The First Blade of Ostia is set a little more than a decade before The Tattered Banner, so you’ll see some familiar faces (albeit younger!) and some new and interesting ones also. It follows a young man called Bryn as he embarks on a duelling career after graduating from Ostenheim’s Academy. He’s accompanied on this path by his best friend, a young aristocrat named Amero…
Writing this book gave me the opportunity to explore the role dueling plays in Ostian society, something I’ve been eager to do ever since first developing the world for The Tattered Banner. It was a lot of fun to write, so I really hope you enjoy the story!
You can pick up a copy from the following vendors. iBooks and Barnes & Noble will follow shortly, and the paperback should be available soon after.
