Ticking Along

This last week has been quite busy:

Into the final chapters of Prelude to Sorrow - the conclusion to the IX's journey.

Had a great couple of reminders from the team over at Black Gate.
Their Top April Posts reveal how well The IX Series & Hell Bound are still doing among their discerning readers.

(Check out the lists)

(Of note - is how strongly a number of other Perseid Press articles feature)
So Well Done to the team.

And I enjoyed a most excellent day with Princess of Light where they asked me for details about my all time Top 10 picks for films over the last (X) decades (Hee hee)


And Don't forget...

Pirates in Hell is Coming

Latest Responses to the IX Series

I'd like to share some pretty encouraging responses to both The IX and Exordium of Tears.

One - a review - came from Netgalley:
Very cool concept. Lots of action and battle sequences that are well done. Quite a few characters and all of them are fleshed out nicely. We get to know and care about every one of them and feel invested in their struggles. The story itself begins as a straight forward band of misfits all brought together to make a last stand against a formidable horde, but, evolves from that simple premise into something more unique and interesting. A few nice twists and turns as we barrel towards the finale make for a very rewarding finish and a heck of a fun book.

The other came from Princess of Light in a Book Spotlight:

All in all, an encouraging week - especially as both books of the series have been ranking well.

On a personal note:
I received my new Kindle - at last - and can get back to read & reviewing.
First on my new list is a book I've been waiting for:

The Golden Sword - Part II of the Silistra Quartet.

There's lots of great reading out there:
I know what I'll be doing next week. Do you?

The Golden Sword (The Silistra Quartet - Book 2)

I hope you don't mind my sharing this through my blog, but I've been waiting a while for the latest book in the Silistra Quartet to become available.

Make space on your bookshelf. It really is a treat you don't want to miss.

She had the power to create planets. 
The sixty carved bones of the Yris-tera 
foretold her ancient fate. 
Her heritage of power took her beyond 
time and space and stole from her the 
one man she loved. 
Enslaved on the planet Silistra tomorrow's 
most beautiful courtesan unleashes the 
powers of the gods.
Available now from these outlets:

And coming soon in trade paperback and hardcover.
