Beneath Rythe Sample Chapters

Finally got around to uploading a three sample chapters of my latest novel, 'Beneath Rythe', which is the conclusion to 'The Rythe Quadrilogy', and sees the end of a seven-book fantasy series started in The Line of Kings Trilogy which has only taken about 15 years to finish (I have done some other things in between, mind you...).

The sample is here, if anyone should be interested:

Beneath Rythe/The Rythe Quadrilogy Book IV/Sample


Mostly suitable for a YA audience, too, these books. No swearing or nooky, although there is a bit of death and the like. Quite a bit. And some flaying. Beheading and wotnot.

Fine for kids, though. ;)

Love you, bit busy, toodle-oo and that.

Red Ice Run to be published by Thunderstorm Books

Ryan C. Thomas and I wrote this novel over the course of a year and a half or so, between other commitments, and it turned out rather well, I think. Thunderstorm Books will publish a signed, limited hardback 1st edition of our mobsters vs vikings action mash-up.

I uploaded a short sample on the blog. I will of course reveal more as I know more, but have put links to those involved to date. Dave Kendall (I love his work) is due to do the cover art, so I've included his link, too.

Love you.

God damn it, Google.

What I've been doing

Just realised I haven't blogged anything for ages, so I'm blogging, because I haven't blogged for ages.

And forgot how to blog, it seems.

Wrote 'Taking the Nine to the Last Shop', a short, which got good feedback but I'm sitting on it 'til I figure out where it might go.

Just finished first drafts of 'Drift Glass' and 'Instead, she Lived the Gangfight Dreams of Madmen' (shorts), and I'll send those out for whatever may be soon.

Working on 'Field of Heroes' 2nd draft now for Severed Press.

Rythe Falls is with Faith Kauwe for edits. When that comes back, a tidy and paperback.

When Field is done it's final draft of Beneath Rythe.

Then I'm free for the next thing. That's all deadlines and big jobbies done, hopefully by summer. Still two to go for Severed and whatever else comes up, but no deadlines and I can go back to doing what I want, when I want to. Which is working all the time.

Love you, that's it - just putting this here so I remember, really.

Didn't say it'd be interesting...

Lore by Craig Robert Saunders - Promotion of Improbable Size

Released 31st March. Pre-order available now.

I'm running a massive 99p/99c sale to coincide with the release of 'Lore', by me, on the 31st of March. The sale will run from release day for one week.

All but four independent releases/reissues of mine will be 99p or 99c (Amazon will only allow the promotion in the US and UK, and those four aren't yet elligible). That's twelve novels on sale, cut from the usual 2.99 in the US, and one boxed set cut from the usual 4.99.

The list:

The Thief King, The Queen of Thieves. Or, the Line of Kings Boxed Set, which seems much more sensible to me.

The Tides of Rythe, Rythe Falls and read 'em in anticipation of the release of the concluding book 'Beneath Rythe' on April 30th. 

The Love of the Dead, RAIN, Vigil, A Home by the Sea, The Dead Boy, A Stranger's Grave, Masters of Blood and Bone, and finally, Cold Fire.

Short story collections and novellas are only .99p/.99c anyway.

I've yet to work out if this will help or hinder the launch of 'Lore' (or make no difference at all...), but hopefully you'll find something you like either way. 

Love you.
