New Book on the Way

I’ve finally finished the first draft of “The Dragon Prince” the sequel to “The Fish King”. I’ve done the first read-through and have put the cover process into motion. I like this one, too. It mostly focusses on one of the second tier characters from “The Fish King” – Jiang. If I put the first book on offer I’ll post here and send to my mailing list. If you want to be on that list just send an email to saying so.

The Sixth Wolf Narak Book

I have just finished writing the sixth book about Wolf Narak. It follows on from The Seventh Friend, The Bloodstained God, The Pity Stone, Serpentine, and Nothing But Tombs. It will be called The Promise of Fire and essentially concludes Narak’s story, but I won’t promise not to write another.

The book still needs to be proofed, so a few weeks yet before it comes out as a kindle eBook.

I’ve also finally satisfied myself that another of my books is ready to meet the public.

The Fish King is the first of a new series, but a stand-alone adventure set in the archipelago of Derakwa. No dragons in this one, but I think it may be up there with the best I’ve written. It should follow The Promise of Fire to the electronic presses – so about four to six weeks between the two.

Progress Report

For anyone waiting to see what comes next, this is the news…

The sequel to Serpentine in almost done in first draft. It looks like a big one – around 760 pages. Working title is “The Loyalty of Men”. After the first draft comes a readthrough, then I’ll get a couple of copies off to readers to try and spot typo’s, context errors etc. Then comes the big edit. Hoping for the end of March as a release date, but we’ll see.
