Future books

Many people ask me what is to come after the Silent Blade Chronicles are finished. Well, although there are still two books to complete in the series I have been working on an idea for a brand new trilogy.

However this new idea will be very much different to the Chronicles in several ways. To begin with this trilogy will be aimed at a more adult audience: gone will be the gentle humour and the carefree camaraderie of the main characters, and gone will be the noticeable lack of swearing and rough speech.

In place of this the new fantasy “Saga” will be very much more hard-hitting and true to life in a dangerous, and corrupt world.

So why, you might ask, have I decided to venture into this change of direction for the future of my books? Well the answer is simple… I firmly believe that as an author and artiste of the written word it is important to explore every aspect of the genre in which I work. This can have a two-fold effect: it gives me the chance to work on something new and different, and more importantly it gives my readers a wholly new and unexpected journey upon which to travel.

For obvious reasons I won’t give out any details for this new venture yet, and I still have a lot of work to do to finish the Chronicles. But at least the future looks as if it will be busy as far as my writing is concerned.

Happy reading everyone

The third book in the Silent Blade Chronicles has now been out on Amazon for a few months, and I am glad to see it is doing well. Already several fans have commented on this third part of the series, telling me how much they loved it. However this has also caused them to ask for more…!

And indeed there is more to come, in the shape of “Dawn of the Gods”, the fourth episode in the Silent Blade Chronicles. This part of the series is now well underway, and I am hoping to have it completed by Christmas, or sometime in the early new year.

So, to all fans of the Silent Blade Chronicles I can only ask you to be patient, as all good things come to those who wait.

 

Happy reading everyone

Into the past

The biggest problem with writing a tale that spans 2000 years is keeping the various plots running in sequence.

So, having written the first three books in the Silent Blade Chronicles, which tell the story in the middle part of the tale I now find myself going back 1000 years to the time it all began. Various characters, and events that appear in the middle section, are all involved in this “historic” part, and because so much has been written about them, this must now be resolved in the fourth book.

Of course, the fifth book will take the story 1000 years into the future, and very likely I will be faced with similar problems when I come to that part.

But however it turns out I would like to say that this epic tale has been a real joy to work on.

So

Happy reading everyone
