Some news for my German readers today!
As some of you will know, my German publisher started publishing a German translation of the Alex Verus books a few years ago, with the translated edition of Fated coming out in 2018. Since then, the books have been coming out in German at a steady rate of one every six months – book #6 just came out this May, and book #7 will be released this November.
Well, as it turns out, the German edition has been very successful – so much so that as of this week, I’ve signed a contract for all the remaining books in the series! The previous contract went up to book #8, and the new contract is for books #9, #10, #11, and #12. My publisher’s current plan is to keep to their two-per-year schedule, in which case the planned release dates for the translated books should be something along the lines of:
Alex Verus #7 (Burned): November 2021
Alex Verus #8 (Bound): May 2022
Alex Verus #9 (Marked): November 2022
Alex Verus #10 (Fallen): May 2023
Alex Verus #11 (Forged): November 2023
Alex Verus #12 (Risen): May 2024
It’s possible that the books might be delayed a few months past these dates, but it shouldn’t be any longer than that.
The only reason that this is happening is because the Alex Verus books have found such a good reception in Germany, so to all of my German fans: thank you for buying and supporting the series! I really didn’t expect Alex Verus to do so well in Germany, and watching the German edition grow so quickly in popularity has been one of the nicest surprises that I’ve had over the past few years.
