I’m extremely pleased to announce that I’ve reached a deal with DAW Books to continue The Song of the Shattered Sands to its completion.

A lot of people are under the mistaken impression that the series is a trilogy. It’s an understandable mistake. Initially we sold three books, a natural length for a contract, but the series was always meant to be six books. So, after finishing up the draft of the third book and developing a proposal for the final three, my agent sent the proposal off.

And then, because this is publishing, we waited. Actually, though, we didn’t have to wait that long for a reply. My agent and I talked last week about the deal that came in from DAW Books. The following is the announcement that came out in Publisher’s Weekly for it:


Needless to say, I’m extremely pleased. I’ve really enjoyed working with DAW, and I’m grateful that they’ve brought the Shattered Sands series to such a broad audience. I’m looking forward to wrapping up this series with them as well.

Now, I better get back to work. I have three more epics to write!

      Thanks so much! And yes, I saw the Dutch edition. I even have a few “in the wild” shots from friends. So psyched to be there!

    It’d be helpful to see a map: would you please let me know if one is online somewhere? Also, unless it’d risk spoilers, would you consider putting up a list of the kings by their description, i.e., name, king of wanderers, whisperers, etc.? Wonderful first book and look forward to diving into the second! Thanks.
