Sorcery Ascendant Sequence deal with Harper Voyager!

To my readers:

I’m extremely pleased to announce I’ve signed a three book global deal with Harper Voyager to publish the Sorcery Ascendant Sequence! I’m thrilled to be published alongside authors such as George RR Martin, Robin Hobb, Raymond Feist, Janny Wurts, Joe Abercrombie, Peter V Brett, Trudi Canavan and Mark Lawrence, who all sit on the Voyager list. They’re excellent company for me to be in!

For those that are interested, the deal is for World English rights for simultaneous launches in Australia, the U.S. and the U.K. Commonwealth in 2015/2016. It will be announced in Publishers Marketplace and Publishers Weekly very soon.

I’ve been exceptionally fortunate with my success so far. My books could have gone unnoticed—good books tank all the time, great books go unseen, and authors give up on their dreams. After the self publishing success of my first two books I was in a position that, while not unique, was certainly rare. It fell to me to decide what was best for my career going forward so I could continue to write full time. After all, that’s the dream. And one I’ll fight tooth and nail to hold onto.

So when Harper Voyager approached me on the strength of my self published books and made an offer, we reached a negotiated agreement. The result will be a far more polished version of the Sorcery Ascendant Sequence, with the full force of Harper Voyager behind it. Unfortunately this means pushing out the release date of book 3. New publishing dates are below.

I know this delay will be cause for some reader unease and disappointment. One of my main concerns was doing right by the readers who put me in this position and Harper Voyager agreed. We put our heads together and came up with a compromise which cut a full year from the original proposed publishing date for book 3. It’s still some time away but it will be worth the wait! Because of the condensed timeline, for the last month both Harper Voyager and myself have already been working on the series even though the contract hadn’t been signed. That’s how committed we both were to bringing the publishing date for book 3 forward as much as possible. And in the interim I’ll do my best to provide extra content for readers who enjoyed the first two books in the world of the Sorcery Ascendant Sequence.

Book 1 new version: September 2015. Old version unavailable when HV version goes up for pre-order.

Book 2 new version: April 2016. Old version unavailable when HV version goes up for pre-order.

Book 3: September 2016.
