I have just sold a new story about the King's Blades to Five Rivers Publishing. Title is One Velvet Glove. Fans will recall that a Blade hero named Sir Spender turned up very early in Lord of the Fire Lands while returning the swords of two Blades who had died defending their ward in a faraway land. He never reappeared and we never learned the details. But hang in there, and in a year or so all will be revealed! I had great fun revisiting Chivial and all my first reader friends did too.

Eocene Station is not due for release until October 1st. Amazon, however has jumped the gun with the Kindle version and you can now download it. I can't find it in i-Books. If you see it listed elsewhere, please let me know. The Paperback, I assume, will go on sale on the announced date.

The first of two books about the Brothers Magnus, Speak to the Devil, was published in hardcover in 2010. Although it received excellent reviews, the mass market paperback did not follow. The e-book is available, and now I hear that the paperback is to be released on December 6th. If you enjoy swords and sorcery, this is your chance to find out what happens when a family can field both.

I was very happy to learn last night that my 2015 novel, Irona 700, is a finalist for the 2016 Endeavour Award. (To be awarded at Portland's Orycon in November.) This is the fifth time that one of my books had been shortlisted, so I am not holding my breath, but fingers will be crossed.
