David Dalglish I'm going to take a guess you mean the Paladins game, and if so, absolutely! The Breaking World trilogy available on Amazon takes place about 80 years after Karak and Ashhur arrive on Dezrel. If you want more recent stuff, Jerico himself is from the Half-Orcs series, and makes his first appearance in the third book on (and as for that series, it details what becomes the Second Gods' War).

Hope this helps!
David Dalglish As of right now (so huge caveat that things can always change) the plan is for one more book taking place a few years after The King of the Fallen. This planned book would be Half-Orcs 9: The Legacy of the Watcher. I suspect I'll get to writing it in about a year or so.

David Dalglish It's been so long since me and Rob wrote that trilogy, but if I remember right, we did indeed have Jerico/Patrick related, if only in our minds (since revealing that in a novel would be pretty hard to do, logistically).
David Dalglish Uh, his own? Not entirely sure what ya mean.
David Dalglish I. Uh. Well, you see...there WERE giant humanoid wasp creatures at one point I threw in as a surprise reveal for that battle but later removed (things were complicated enough as is, and I overall didn't like my attempt at them, nor their overall abilities/concept).

Every reference to them should have been removed. I clearly didn't catch every single one... sorry for any confusion :(
David Dalglish Nothing currently, no. It'd be a bit of a project trying to suddenly go from 25 or so fantasy novels to sci-fi. I wouldn't rule it out, because who knows what I feel like doing five to ten years from now, but it isn't in the current foreseeable future.

David Dalglish If you enjoyed both Paladins and Half-Orcs then reading Shadowdance would make the most sense next (so it's in the same world and shares a lot of characters, such as the various members of the Eschaton, or the Ash Guild).

David Dalglish It varies between the series. The Skyborn books are the tamest of the lot by far. Shadowdance Series is mostly 'fade to black' throughout when it comes to sex, but it has some darker moments. The Half-Orcs, and the Keepers, are both solidly rated R.
David Dalglish Several of my series are indeed connected (Breaking World, Half-Orcs, Paladins, and Shadowdance to be precise). Still, I always make sure each individual series stands on its own and can be read in any order. However, the Keepers books are in a separate world, with a completely separate story line, so no worries about that in regards to Soulkeeper!

David Dalglish I'm currently writing the eighth, and it should be coming out in July!

As for the Breaking World, they are published by an Amazon imprint, and therefore sadly only available on the Kindle store. You'll need to download the Kindle app on your phone if you want to read them on an android phone.

David Dalglish I'd be more than happy for that, but it's less "have I considered it" and more "are TV execs interested?" There's a looooot of authors out there, and far more books produced yearly than the vastly fewer tv series. When I first signed with Orbit, there was some interest in the Shadowdance Series, and we did have an agent pitch it, but it never managed any momentum sadly. Odds are, unless I have a series hit the mega-star levels of sales, it likely won't happen.
