I said I'd be posting a specially thought-of passage from near the end of the book. Spoilers are redacted.

Here it is )

15 days! Yeesh, that was fast. Just shows how long I've had this finale planned.

In light of the disappointing election results in the USA, I have decided to add an extra chapter-thing to the end of my book, as part of an extended denoument. I'll be writing it tonight, as I may not remember later in the month. It will also be the only extract from the book published directly here and on LJ (with crucial plot details redacted, 'cos y'know, spoilers)

NaNoWriMo starts in ten days. As usual, I will be writing the next book in the series. However, this year, the series ends - the final book will be written.

Book IX - The Dragon

War! Invasion! Massacre! Betrayal! Mercenaries!

The Burning Rose have quite spectacularly failed in their mission to avert a war with an enemy that has a dragon. As a punishment, they are not allowed to take part in the desperate defence of the North against the massive army of fanatics fielded by the Sword Bearers. Instead, they have to journey into a legendary wasteland and find a talisman that can help them defeat the dragon. Without the dragon, it might just be possible to defeat the Nataran army that outnumbers the armies of the North by at least two-to-one.


As a final piece of teasing before I disappear and start writing: You know those Trilogy bumper volumes I prepare? The ones that contain three books in the series, have an author's introduction, and an exclusive short story that will never be seen anywhere else?
The short story for the third Trilogy will be called "How Time Passes..."

GOOD NEWS - BUY 3 GET 1 FREE!

Go to Lulu.com, buy four print copies of my books, and the cheapest will be free. Just use coupon code TRGE15

EBooks also available, but there's no discount on them (they're much cheaper anyway).

My computer is being slow and the weather is so nice I'm feeling unjustifiably lazy. Still, eBooks were promised, and eBooks you shall get:
Books VII and VIII of Have Sword & Sorcery: Will Travel™ are now available as eBooks at Lulu, Apple iBookstore, Barnes & Noble NOOK, Amazon Kindle, Kobo, and maybe some others.
Well, in theory they are anyway, I don't know how long it'll take them to actually appear on the sites, but they are OFFICIALLY available. The rest of the series will follow suit tomorrow (probably in reverse order).
Remember - you can only get the Trilogies and their exclusive short stories in dead-tree format!

Well, that took longer than expected. Nevertheless, Book VIII is now available to buy from Lulu.com.

The main reason it took so long is that Lulu have changed their formats, and so, like a book series that changes the cover style whenever it's reprinted, all the books are now available in the same size! Yes, instead of the unwieldy 6"x9", all the single books are now the same size as a normal novel (4.25"x6.87"). The trilogies will remain larger, at A5 size (5.8"x8.5"), to cut down on spine thickness.

Currently e-books are not available, but they will start to be made available again on Friday.

Things that will happen in the next year (possibly in chronological order):

  • Preparation and release of new format print and ebooks of the series (including Book VIII in early April)

  • Write the exclusive short story for the final trilogy compendium

  • Write more short stories for online release

  • Make full version of the map available

  • Write Book IX
