Dragonslayer eBook Pricing

After a number of comments from my readers who were concerned by the more traditional pricing for the ebook for Dragonslayer, and some discussions with the people at Tor, I’m delighted to be able to announce that we’ve decided to lower the ebook price to something more in line with my previously published titles – $6.99 or equivalent in other currencies, down from the original point of $9.99. Anyone who’s already preordered will only pay the new, lower price at release.

It’s very important to me that my work remains accessible to my longstanding readers now that I’ve made the switch over to the traditional publishing model, so I hope this drop in price puts it back within reach of those for whom it was too expensive!

You can preorder a copy now, over at Amazon:

Amazon US

Also, don’t forget about the preorder bonus, The Drake of White Peak. With only 2 weeks left before Dragonslayer’s release on 2 July, time’s running out to get your copy! You can find all the details of how to redeem your proof of purchase and get The Drake of White Peak 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!

Dragonslayer news!

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:

In other news, I’m a lot more active on Goodreads these days, so if you want to follow along, please feel free to add me as a friend. You can find my profile here:

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!

Cover reveal for Dragonslayer

Today is cover reveal day for my upcoming book, Dragonslayer, the fist part of my Dragonslayer trilogy! Without further ado, here it is:

I’m really pleased with how it turned out, so I hope you like it to! The official cover reveal page can be found over on the Tor website, which you can take a look at here.

Dragonslayer will be coming out in the summer of next year!

I spy, with my little eye…

…something beginning with D!

I wasn’t expecting to see this when I went abrowsing on Amazon today… Dragonslayer is already up for preorder! I guess that’s the release date announcement taken care of!

I hope everyone’s well, and looking forward to the summer! (if you’re in the northern hemisphere… otherwise, I hope you had a nice summer!)

Some news…

Hey everyone, I hope the new year is going well for you!

Things have been pretty busy over here since Christmas, and there’s some news to announce in that regard.

I’ve just agreed to a 3 book deal with Tor. The first book in that trilogy, Dragonslayer, will be out early next year. Those of you who are current with my work will have seen a hint of dragons (indeed, a couple of people have mailed asking about that!). They’ll be appearing centre stage in this trilogy, with some new heroes to meet and locations to explore in my Middle Sea world. I’m really pleased with how the story has developed, and I hope those of you who’ve enjoyed my work to date will think it’s my best yet!

It’s a pretty exciting time, and there’s lots of work to be done, but I’ll do my best to keep my updates as regular as I can. Thanks again for all your interest and support!
