German deal for A Crucible of Souls!

Just a quick post and then I’ll get back to writing… I promise.

A Crucible of Souls German rights sold to Heyne a 2018 debut! This also means the Audible deal will kick in, and they’ll produce audio in German.

My lovely agent Laurie McLean at Fuse Literary made this for me:

At the Sign of the Crow and Moon cover reveal!

At the Sign of the Crow and Moon is my new novella which will be released in the next couple of weeks. It’s set in the world of the Sorcery Ascendant Sequence, and features Felicienne Shyrise as the main character. It’s a small side project which came together really well, and very quickly. I’m excited to get it out into the world! Without further ado, here is the cover and the description:

At the Sign of the Crow and Moon - Ebook Small

A fast-paced fantasy adventure in the world of the Sorcery Ascendant Sequence, from Aurealis Award winning author Mitchell Hogan.

Ten years before A Crucible of Souls…

In the bustling capital city of the Mahruse Empire, Felicienne Shyrise spends her days as a talented investigator, taking on stolen goods and missing person cases, and the occasional murder the city guard are too incompetent, or too lazy, to resolve.

During nights, she hones her skills playing Dominion, a board game almost as complicated as life itself. She dreams of making a name for herself, and becoming the richest woman in the Empire.

But when she’s roped into a murky investigation by a First Adjudicator to the immortal Emperor himself, her life is thrown into disarray. Will this be the perfect opportunity to showcase her skills and make valuable connections, or will her future now be in the hands of political powers that can never be denied?

Working against her will, and afraid of the consequences of refusing the commission, she uncovers evidence that points to an attempt on the Emperor’s life. Felicienne rapidly finds herself a target, and must use her considerable wits to uncover the plot of an unseen enemy who always seems to be one step ahead of the game.

Audible version of Blood of Innocents

It was brought to my attention that the Audible version of Blood of Innocents hadn’t been updated to the new Harper Voyager edited re-narrated audiobook. Audible have since corrected this and the new version is live. If you would like to listen to the newer (and better!) Blood of Innocents, all you need to do is delete your current version and re-download the audiobook. If you have any trouble you can always contact the Audible support team.

Here’s a direct link to the audiobook: Blood of Innocents

I assume that the likelihood of listening to it again as an updated version is rare. However as the final dramatic scene was rewritten and about 3,000 extra words added, I’d encourage people to listen to the final section again if possible.

As always, thank you everyone for the amazing support so far!
