I’m pleased to report that my editors at Manchester University Press have–after much persistence–come through. The mysterious and perplexing glitch that’s been delaying the ebook publication of THE FANTASY FICTION FORMULA is now “un-glitched.” TFFF is finally available on Kindle. Woo-hoo!
Some of you have been waiting quite a while for the ebook version. I’m sorry about the long delay, and thank you for your patience.
Sometimes there are gremlins in the house, but at last they seem to have gone away.
I just found out that Amazon has chosen two of my YA fantasy books–CRYSTAL BONES and THE CALL OF EIRIAN–to be discounted July 12, 2016, in connection with their Prime celebration. The books were published under my C. Aubrey Hall pseudonym. So if you know any youngsters–or just the young at heart–looking for fantasy adventure, please pass the word. Thanks.
Podcast #4–dealing with dialogue–is now live on the Manchester University Press Web site. Pitfalls and tips are discussed.
For those of you who have been wondering if THE FANTASY FICTION FORMULA will be available in a Kindle version as well as print, the answer is … YES.
It’s in process, and should be live very soon, perhaps next week.
If any of you have read my fantasy trilogy, THE SWORD, THE RING, and THE CHALICE, then you might be interested to know that in December 2015 I published a new novelette called THE KING’S LADY on Amazon Kindle. It deals with the first week of Dain’s reign as King of Nether, where he’s struggling to find his feet and meet the challenges facing his realm. Dain has a lot to learn in these early days, and he’s just getting started.
I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to fill some of these “gaps” in the Nether storyline. As time permits, I plan to add more stories, including a continuation from where I stopped with THE KING IMPERILED. It was never my intention to stop there or leave readers hanging with unanswered questions. Now that I am no longer dependent on Ace Books to bring out this series, I look forward to doing more with it when my contractual obligations allow.
As for the Mandrian series with Queen Pheresa, her story was intended originally to run parallel to Dain’s, but the time lines grew apart. I have several twists and turns still in store for her.
Meanwhile, give THE KING’S LADY a look, and see what you think.
