Most of my spare time is going on getting book 3 written.

However, I did think that once the trilogy is complete (later this year) it might be a good time to offer all three as real copies for people to order from me direct. Given the size of the books though and postage and packing, it will be hard to keep costs anything like as low as I can for the kindle versions.

Still - watch this (create space)(less)

I'm glad you're enjoying the series!…moreI'm happy for reviews to appear anywhere and everywhere. I hadn't even realised B&N could sell the printed book. I'm glad you're enjoying the series!(less)

There is a currency to Anderson's themes which I found quite resonant.

“It can’t be,” Udecht stammered. “Eadran the Vanquisher destroyed him near a millennium ago. Maelgrum is gone. Finished.”
“My dear bishop, he isn’t exactly alive, I grant you,” the hooded medusa teased. “But he is certainly a lot less dead than you would like.”
T.O. Munro, Lady of the Helm

“The village of Proginnot? Aye the ridge had a wood atop it. It lies perhaps ten miles south-east of here.”
“There we will make a stand, our numbers may not be enough to go on the attack, but let them come to us and throw themselves on our spears. Old Matteus used to say that a good position is worth ten thousand men.”
T.O. Munro, Lady of the Helm

“Where lies Prince Hetwith?” Kimbolt still evaded Dema’s question.
The medusa thought a moment and then waved a hand towards the gorge. “Mostly over there, though I think you are standing on one of his legs.”
T.O. Munro, Lady of the Helm

“You are my daughter. I would love you if you put out the sun.”
Peter V. Brett, The Daylight War

“Hold to a thing long enough, a secret, a desire, maybe a lie, and it will shape you.”
Mark Lawrence

“Memories are dangerous things. You turn them over and over, until you know every touch and corner, but still you'll find an edge to cut you.”
Mark Lawrence, Prince of Thorns

“Is this going to be one of those times when you pretend not to have a plan until the last moment? And then turn out to really not have one?- Sir Makin to King Jorg”
Mark Lawrence, King of Thorns

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
