A great majority of my books are available in audio form, but the Blades books have been conspicuous by their silence. Thanks to an initiative by Lorina Stephens, of Five River Publishing, this is about to change. Of course to read and record eight books will take time. And lots more time to listen to, but I hope the results will begin to appear soon. The campaign cannot end until 2020, when the ninth book, The Ethical Swordsman will be published.

I am most hugely happy to announce that BOTH the novels I submitted to the Endeavour Award have been short-listed. No writer has managed this before. The books, both published last year, are Ironfoot and Portal of a Thousand Worlds. The winner will not be announced until November 9th. By then I won’t have any finger nails left.

I wasn’t planning to announce this for a while (like maybe a year) but I have written another Blades book, The Ethical Swordsman, and sold it to Five Rivers Publishing, who put out my One Velvet Glove earlier this year. (That tells you that OVG sold well.) The bad news is that the new book is not scheduled for publication until 2020. 2019 is reserved for Pillar of Darkness. As I said, I wasn’t planning to mention it yet, but Five Rivers has issued an announcement bragging about it. Hang in there, please, friends.

I always regret that my SF books are less popular than my Fantasy. SF actually takes more work to write! Personally, I believe that my output is equally readable in either genre. I am fortunate that every one of my published books is still available, but I fear that this situation is likely to change in the near future. E-books do have a slight maintenance cost, and contracts allow publishers to discontinue them when profits turn negative. Two books that I especially love and that I believe may be at risk are Pock’s World and Wildcatter. Both are SF, but if you are a fan of my writing, please do try these. I promise that you will meet some lovable characters (in hateful situations, of course).
