The audiobook of The Siege of Skyhold, Mage Errant Book 5, narrated by the amazing Ralph Lister, is now out on Audible!
I’m hard at work on book 6, and, with any luck, should have it out by the end of the year! (We’re back on lockdown here in Vietnam, which, while it seems like it should be great for getting writing done, really isn’t. Whee!) I’ll keep you all updated there.
So, first off, the big one: Mage Errant is officially getting translated into German, Spanish, Italian, Polish, and French! My awesome audiobook publisher Podium Audio set up the deal, and you can read more about it on their site!
Next, on a more personal level- I just spent the last week exploring Phong Nha-Khe Bang National Park here in Vietnam, and I would HIGHLY recommend it, once the pandemic ends and Vietnam opens up its borders again. Badass caves scattered through a beautiful jungle, highly recommend it. (And no, alas, I didn’t get to visit Son Doong cave.)
Alright, next: Mage Errant hit 1000 reviews on Amazon! Woo!
Oh, and if you didn’t see it last week, I commissioned some artwork to celebrate the Mage Errant subreddit hitting 1000 subscribers! (It just barely beat the Amazon reviews to the mark.) Check it out here!
Next off is actually not my news, but a fellow author, Alec Hutson, just put his brilliant novel Shadows of Dust on sale for $0.99, and I HIGHLY recommend it- it’s a science fantasy nautical novel with ships on the backs of monsters flying through space. powers, the giant turtle that their ship is built on the shell of, and a captain determined to muddle through on luck. It’s so much fun. (If you’re familiar with Spelljammer, oh, does this scratch all that itch.) If it does well, maybe we can convince Alec to write a sequel, and I REALLY want a sequel, I absolutely loved this book!
Humiliated in the ruins of Imperial Ithos, the Exile Splinter stolen from their grasp by the ancient sphinx Kanderon Crux, Havath’s Duarchs have assembled an army that dwarfs the entire population of Skyhold. Led by their Great Powers, monsters and mages individually capable of leveling a city, they pose a threat that even Kanderon, one of the mightiest of Great Powers, and her equally monstrous allies might be unable to stop.
As the Havathi forces push closer and closer to Skyhold, Hugh and his friends train relentlessly, hoping to make a difference in the oncoming siege. While they venture into dangerous realms of untested experimental magic, though, they’re already caught up in currents far beyond their control.
Once you’re a pawn in the games of the Great Powers, there’s no escape.
