Update on pre-ordering The Last Road

[August 20, 2019] Pyr has released the cover for The Last Road, which concludes Gods of the Caravan Road and is coming out October 22nd. If you're looking to pre-order it -- and it would make me very happy if you did! -- be warned there's a mess with the distribution that hasn't yet (as of August 20, 2019) been sorted out. All my books with Pyr are showing as "not available" (or as just a few last copies) almost everywhere, because places are still set up to try to get them from Random House, which does not have them, instead of Simon and Schuster, which does. Also, if you pre-ordered it in the Fall of 2018 or the Winter of 2019, there's a good chance your order was cancelled -- all the pre-orders were wiped out in the first round of this distributor mess following Pyr's sale to a new parent company. You may have to order it again. There's no problem with the ebooks, so you can pre-order The Last Road in that format (and likewise the other four books too if you are so moved). For print books, your options are pretty much limited to Amazon US and Canadian independent bookstores, as they're the ones that have the correct distributor in their databases. You can find order links for everything here; just click on the cover of the one you want, to go its page. Bear in mind what I said above about print books and don't believe them when they say unavailable or out of print: Amazons CA and UK are selling used copies but not new ones (or used ones labelled as 'new' but which are from resellers), which is annoying when the books are still in print, not to have actual new royalty-earning copies available. Soon, I hope, all five books of Gods of the Caravan Road will be available to order in trade paperback again, everywhere. If you want to be sure of being notified when the mess is sorted out, you can sign up for my newsletter. Cheers!

Release Date for The Last Road

[July 2019] As you may have heard, late in 2018 Pyr was sold to a new parent company, Start. There have been some unavoidable delays in the shakedown cruise phase of the transition! It looks like the new publication date for The Last Road is October 22, 2019. I'm working on correcting the proofs -- an important nearly-final stage -- at this very moment.
