Risen in Germany, and DragonCon Interview

Several bits of news for this week!

First, as you may have already guessed from the image, the twelfth and final Alex Verus book is at last being released in its German translation this coming week (Monday 17th June for the audio edition, Wednesday 19th June for the print and ebook versions).  This marks the end of a long journey for the German edition – Blanvalet have been producing the translations for years now, and they’ve finally finished working their way through the backlog.  Thanks to all of my German readers who’ve been supporting the series, and I hope you enjoy the final volume!

I’m also doing an interview for DragonCon this summer – I won’t be able to make it to the convention itself (still trying to finish Inheritance of Magic #3) but I’m doing a virtual interview for the Dragon Con Urban Fantasy Track.  The interview itself is scheduled for next week – I don’t know when the video will be released, but I’ll post a link up once it is.

We’re also starting to get into the run-up to the release of Inheritance of Magic #2, An Instruction in Shadow.  My current plan is to release the first two chapters online prior to the book’s release in October – Chapter 1 will go up in August, and Chapter 2 in September.  I’ll put up exact dates closer to the time.

And that’s all for now!  Next week is another Beginner’s Guide to Drucraft post, this one on the subject of tracing and limiters.

    Good news on the German edition and even better news as regards the First Chapter of Book#2. October seems so far away but August to continue the story and (maybe) resolve the cliff-hanger of Stephen and his Mum’s relationship – sounds very nice and not too far off!

    I was thinking about Charles and his quest for the Heir to House Ashford. His first priority for a successor would (I think) be politicking skills with skills using Sigls a close second – making Sigls is not so much a priority as he can, being rich, buy in expertise in making Sigls or just buys the ones need in the exchange. Sigls, such as Stephen, has are great to have but not as important, unless he needs specialist skills to make items (in private?) to give the house an edge.

    Charles also needs to think “An Heir and a Spare” if he wants to secure the future of the house. After all, he did say that Cahoun is being tested and could fail. Luzilla and Tombias would be rather poor selections to rely on as they seem adept at failing at the schemes – so far at least. Mybe Charles is investigating Stephens capabilities a lot more subtly than Luzilla henchmen have, or perhaps Brigette is the dark horse?

    I’ve just noticed that Amazon is offering the paperback version of Inheritance of Magic and it will be available on Election Day (4th July). I will make sure that I get a copy!

    I really love the covers of the German edition and keep thinking about bying them just for that reason. I admit, though, that I’m not similarly convinced by the titles. Still, Blanvalet will have had their reasons for choosing them, I guess. And I can read them in English anyway, with the additional benefit of not having to wait the extra time for the translation.

    I really look forward to reading the first chapters of Inharitance of Magic #2 – the preorder is already out :o)

    Excellent news on the German edition of Risen. I really, really enjoyed Inheritance of Magic and cannot wait for book 2. The first book made me think this is going to be an amazing series. I look forward to reading it!
