January comes from the Roman god Janus, a two-faced deity of doorways. So, it’s fitting to end the Year of Doom with a post that looks back to the electronic versions of Kingdom Asunder and ahead to the paperback release.
I plan to use CreateSpace, but, as well as stressing over typos, I need to decide which cover to use. So, please take a moment to cast your eyes over the artwork below and vote on which you prefer. If you’re on Twitter, you can vote there, or you can vote using the poll on the upper right hand side of this blog, or you can just reply to this post with your preference.
Not made a paperback via CreateSpace before so giving a timetable is tricky, but I’d guess at least a few weeks will be needed to sort through the formatting pish.
But that’s not all I have planned for next year.
Forthcoming Stuff of Excitement in 2017:
January = Journeys, a fantasy anthology featuring Black Sails, by me
24 January = Saint Francis’ Day (will probably do a sale)
January/February = hopefully get Kingdom Asunder, physical edition done
Latter half of 2017 = Traitor’s Prize, the sequel to Kingdom Asunder, is anticipated
Possible extra stuff = I may well have stories in a couple more anthologies, and there’s just the smidgen of a chance that Sir Edric will return in Sir Edric’s Kingdom.
