Well, it’s been a while since my last update, hasn’t it? Sorry about that. I suppose the four or five main folks who read and comment on the blog have been in constant contact with me anyway, so you know that nothing much has been going on. Just a whole lot of day job stuff, and mad book-editing.
Anyway, you’ve definitely already scrolled down to the book cover reveal, so let’s just get to it. Behold, the third and final book of the Oræl Rides To War trilogy!
Yes, there’s Mell in denim short shorts. That’s technically not in the story, but I still like it. I did put my foot down about her having a gun, though, which is why she has a nifty knife holster instead. Glorious, and quite disturbing.
There we go. I love this cover. Fun note, I gave Gabriel a pretty open brief for the cover, specifically that a lot of the story takes place in an arid country in a world that is running down and falling apart in some strange ways so if he wanted to go surreal with the landscape, that would be cool. So he did!
I hadn’t actually written the Overfold into the story, at least in its final form, before I saw the draft cover. When I saw it, I immediately had to write it in. Very fun. I guess you’ll see what I’m talking about when you get the book.
When will that be? Well, the paperback is available now! The e-book is also available, here! My setup page and everything says it’s $5.49, same as the other two books in the trilogy, so I am not sure why it is selling for $6.04 on the kindle page but that’s Amazon for you.
In the meantime, this! Next up, Tales of the Final Fall #4, Always Night #2 … or maybe I’ll launch right into Phase Three, the high fantasy series is beginning to pull at me.
What else has been going on? Ugh, so much. All mostly fine, mostly dull. Busy at work, wrestling with Amazon to get print proofs and stuff shipped to Finland (they just randomly stopped), working on the Finnish translation of Eejit (Mäntti), recording episodes for the podcast and dying inside every time it mangles the sound files.
Spring is coming.
That’s about it. I have some other blog posts drafted but haven’t had a chance to flesh them out yet.
