Just an update to let you know that the Phoenix of Kiymako can now be pre-ordered across various retailers, so check out this link if you missed the Kickstarter 🙂
Imperial Towers (Book of Never #5) is now available at Amazon and Kobo and very soon at B&N and (hopefully) at Google Play also.
Purchase - Amazon & Kobo, All Territories
The link above is a 'global link' so no matter where you are in the world, the link will send you a page where you can choose between Amazon, B&N and Kobo, which then defaults to your territory :)
Big thanks to Never fans who have followed along since March 1st in 2016, exactly a year ago today, when book 1 (The Amber Isle) was released :)
Stay tuned for an update for B&N customers but also several interviews where I talk about Never, the books and the magic, along with a post of me reading chapter 1 of Imperial Towers :)
Imperial Towers (Book of Never #5) is now available for pre-order!
Here's a mini-blurb:
Only one thing stands between Never and answers – his brother.
Driven toward the enemy-occupied Imperial City, Never’s doubts grow. Even with new knowledge about his powers, can he truly keep his friends safe in a warzone? Or, like too many times before, will he end up responsible for the deaths of those he should have protected?
Barnes & Noble are a little behind again, so for now Imperial Towers is only available for pre-order with Amazon and Kobo but updates are coming.
Below, you can click a 'global link' which should send you to a retailer in your territory :)
Pre-order (Amazon or Kobo)
Official release is still set for March 1st - see you then!
Imperial Towers is rushing toward release!
But March 1st is still a little ways away so I wanted to share another 'writing soundtrack' - albums and songs I've been immersed in over the months while writing or editing Imperial Towers.
(Tomorrow or so, these will have links, but for now it's just the images)
Only two weeks to go now and Imperial Towers is due for release!
While you wait, I thought I'd post a random quote from somewhere random...page 113 as it turns out:
When Pacela’s Spire finally came into view Never’s arms were burning from the stretcher but he didn’t bother calling a halt, better to reach the comparative safety of the spire sooner. The square resting beneath the Spire lay empty. Silver figures of Pacela in her flowing robe stood at each corner though naught but new weeds crept between the flagstones.
Here's a little preview from the forthcoming Imperial Towers - the first 3 chapters of the conclusion to Never's story :)

Here's a Christmas gift idea that has absolutely zero chance of arriving in time for Christmas!!!!!!
But seriously, if anyone was looking for a paperback copy of Greatmask, it's now available :) The two retailers I've noticed so far are Amazon and B&N, but others will doubtless follow in the new year.
Hope you have a good holiday if you're lucky enough to have time off, unlike folks in retail for instance (used to be me) or hospitality (like my brother)!
One of my anthologies is part of a holiday giveaway, along with Fantastic Creatures and From the Stories of Old and over at the release party you can win one of the three Fantasy Anthologies or a $30 Gift Certificate to Amazon :)
The Giveaway ends on the 28th of December, just click the link to enter!
Imperial Towers (Book of Never #5) now has its cover and you can view it over at Lynn's Book Blog, who generously offered to host the official cover reveal :)
Lynn's book blog is fantastic so check it out while you're there, her top tens and other themed posts especially are always great. You can also read her review of The Amber Isle here, when it was featured as part of Mark Lawrence's Self Published Fantasy Blog Off :)
NOTE: If you haven't finished reading Never #4, the cover art to #5 will pose a bit of a spoiler!
And thanks once more to Lin Hsiang for the amazing illustration and VividCovers for the ace title work :D
