Amalia Dillin began as a Biology major before taking Latin and falling in love with old heroes and older gods. After that, she couldn't stop writing about them, with the occasional break for more contemporary subjects. She lives in upstate New York with her husband, and dreams of the day when she will own goats--to pull her chariot through the sky, of course.

Amalia is the author of the Fate of the Gods trilogy, and the Orc Saga, beginning with HONOR AMONG ORCS. She also writes historical fiction under the name Amalia Carosella.

Hi Zoe!

Thanks so much for reading and I'm so glad you're enjoying the series! I'm planning right now for a 2017 release for Orc Saga 3, but how early or late in 2017 will depend a great deal on when other contracted projects are scheduled -- I don't want to cannibalize my own sales, and don't have the same control over those dates to firmly place book 3 quite yet.

I'm so sorry to keep you waiting, and I'm eager to get book three into your hands, so I hope you'll hang in there with me!

Also thank you SO MUCH for your question!(less)
Amalia Dillin Wow! Thank you so much for reading -- I'm so glad you've enjoyed my books!! You are so kind, and your comment has made my day! :)

Orc1 and Orc2 Update

Hi Readers!

This is just a quick housekeeping note--

HONOR AMONG ORCS and BLOOD OF THE QUEEN are in the process of being unpublished on one end* and republished on the other, so if you notice availability isn't quite right or broken links, that's why. I'm working as hard and as fast as Amazon will allow to get this sorted and the books live again with as little disruption to potential new Read more of this blog post »

“Wait." He paused, and she held out a hand to him. His thick fingers engulfed her tapering ones; his skin was warm and dry, and scorched her. "Before we go pick up poor Lieutenant Illyan again..."

He took her in his arms, and they kissed, for the first time, for a long time.

"Oh," she muttered after. "Perhaps that was a mistake. It hurts so much when you stop."

"Well, let me..." his hand stroked her hair, gently, then desperately wrapped itself in a shimmering coil; they kissed again.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, Shards of Honour

“He shook his head and looked away, as if he was giving himself a firm lecture only he could here.”

“First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you're inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won't. Habit is persistence in practice.”
Octavia Butler, Bloodchild and Other Stories

Matt Fraction, Thor: Ages of Thunder

“For if you suffer your people to be ill-educated, and their manners to be corrupted from their infancy, and then punish them for those crimes to which their first education disposed them, what else is to be concluded from this, but that you first make thieves and then punish them.”
