Dragonslayer Audio Sample

I’m lucky enough to have Simon Vance back to narrate Dragonslayer. He won a SOVA Award for Best Fantasy Narration for Wolf of the North back in 2017, so I’m delighted he’s narrating the Dragonslayer trilogy. Tor have put up a teaser for the audiobook narration, so you can now have a listen to the first 3 chapters of Dragonslayer over at this link:

You can grab a copy of Dragonslayer at Amazon, amongst others, but here’s a quick link for Amazon:

Don’t forget about the preorder bonus Drake of White Peak! All the details can be found here:

Dragonslayer 3 Cover Reveal!

It feels a little odd revealing the cover for Book 3 in the Dragonslayer trilogy before the first one is even released, but with the quick release schedule (a little less than 6 months between each book) all these things get front loaded a bit! So, here is the cover for the final part of Dragonslayer trilogy, titled ‘Servant of the Crown’.

All three covers are magnificent pieces of art in their own right, and you can rest assured that I’ve worked extremely hard to make sure the interior content lives up to the exterior!

I also wanted to remind everyone that there’s a preorder bonus for Dragonslayer, an original short story called The Drake of White Peak, that introduces the reader to some of the old dragonslayers of legend. With Dragonslayer coming out on 2 July, there’s only a little over a month left to preorder and secure your copy!

All you need to do is proved the good people at Tor with your proof of purchase (and, unfortunately, reside in the US or Canada – apologies to anyone who doesn’t!), which you can do at this link, where you’ll also find all the details of the promotion, along with preorder links for Dragonslayer.

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’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.
