The Rythe Septology Completed

This was an unconscionable amount of work over a span of more years than I've been married. I've known these characters since before I began to work on the novels, from the very first character in my first published short story (A Matryr's Tale - concerning Tirielle A'm Dralorn's father, who warrants little more than a mention by the time she appears in 'Rythe Awakes'). That was something like seventeen years ago, and the first novel was written around fifteen years ago.

I will put out paperbacks for the last three (Rythe Falls, Beneath Rythe, and The Rythe Quadrilogy Omnibus) pretty much when I get around to it! The entire Line of Kings Trilogy, and the Omnibus, is available in paperback.

I need to say a huge thank you to Faith Kauwe, too, who is a terrific editor. She's worked on every single one of these books, editing over 800,000 of fiction. She's super cool. Thank you, Faith.

Thank you to you, too, for reading these books. It's taken a long while, and there have been problems along the way. Mostly, I didn't know how to do it fifteen years ago, but I wanted to. I hope I learned how by the end.

Love you.

The entire Septology (in order) is as follows:

#1 The Outlaw King
#2 The Thief King
#3 The Queen of Thieves

The Line of Kings Omnibus/Boxed Set Edition contains these three novels.

Next, The Rythe Quadrilogy is the continuation of the story/prequel trilogy, and closes all circles:

#1 Rythe Awakes
#2 The Tides of Rythe
#3 Rythe Falls
#4 Beneath Rythe

The Rythe Quadrilogy Boxed Set Edition contains these four novels.

All novels can be found on any Amazon at my page. I'm not putting links in, because fifteen years is enough. I'm moving on.

Lore free for five days, Beneath Rythe Kink-free.

Lore is free for five days (from today).

Links: US

Beneath Rythe, the concluding book in the Rythe Quadrilogy, is officially kink-free now, so if you've downloaded it, now's a reasonable time to read it. If you haven't, it's safe at last. I am ridiculously sorry it got all squiffled, but by way of recompense...Lore's free. ;) Love you.

The Rythe Quadrilogy Boxed Set out soon

I'll be releasing this soon. I'm still ironing out some kinks with 'Beneath Rythe', but at this point I'm looking at around another four or five hours work to get that finished until I'm satisfied with it. This boxed set is only for Kindle, so that's probably a few hours work at most. I'll post again when I'm ready to go, and my sincere apologies if you've been caught by the kinks. I suck, I know. Sorry, love you, etc...

Coming Soon

As always, time to move on to the next thing.

Next in line to be published is Red Ice Run by me and Ryan C. Thomas, which will be published in a signed/limited hardback format by Thunderstorm Books, after which we'll look for a publisher for the paperback and Kindle rights.

I enjoyed writing Lore, and Severed Press have contracted me to write three science fiction novels (I write sci-fi under the cunning pseudonym 'Craig Robert Saunders'). I'm finishing up 'Field of Heroes' for Severed now; a heroic, space marine romp.

I'm currently shipping 'Hush' (science fiction) and 'Ghost Voices' so I'm hoping they'll be out this year. They are, obviously, finished, so we'll see and fingers crossed etc. Ghost Voices was under contract with Dark Fuse, but they died, so I've had to start the submission process all over again...

Next I'll be either working on 'Coachman' (independent release and the concluding chapter in the Hangman/Highwayman story) or one of two others due for Severed Press. I don't have a timescale for the Severed books, but I'd like to get two of the three down before the end of the year.

Toward the end of the year I'll put out a Rythe Quadrilogy Omnibus, and next year the entire seven Rythe books as a Boxed Set (I'll only do that as a Kindle). I intend to start looking for an audio narrator for the Rythe novels nearer the end of this year, probably. Enough going on for now.

Anyway, that's that, and I'm not making any promises. That way lies madness...also disappointment and headaches...

Love you. x
