The three books in the series (Demon Sword, Demon Rider, & Demon Knight) never quite completed the story. There should have been a Book Four. I have added a brief PS to the third book explaining this omission, and how I think the saga would have ended. If you already own an e-book copy, this update is now available free of charge from your supplier. If you buy the paperback in future, it will be included. (Thanks to the cooperation of my current publisher, Open Road Integrated Media.) If you already own a paper book, you can view a copy of the postscript here.

Only four months until Pillar of Darkness will be released, so I have posted the first chapter here.

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.
