October Update 2016

When is Book 3 coming out? That is the question. Everyone wants to know. If they don’t, then you haven’t convinced them to read KDT yet. That’s my hope anyway, because the alternative is sad.

Here is the news:

  • I am pushing hard for a December release of Book 3. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.  If for some terrible reason I don’t make the deadline, please don’t throw cabbages at me. It will come soon after. (No, we will not be waiting for years wondering if the author was sucked into an alternative universe.)
  • The Free the Darkness (KDT Book 1) audiobook made Best Seller in Audible’s SciFi & Fantasy and has already received over a thousand ratings! Click here to find it on Audible.com.
  • The Reign of Madness (KDT Book 2) audiobook was released on October 4th. On the first day, it ranked #12 Best Seller across ALL titles on Audible! Thank you, listeners! Click here to find it on Audible.com.

As always, I enjoy hearing from you guys! Keep reading and listening!

    • Is it? It’s so easy to lose track of time when your head is lost in another world. I’m working hard to bring that world into this one, but these kinds of spells–I mean books–take time. Getting it wrong could mean disaster for an entire world.

      • I realize that doing something well is better than doing something quickly. But the small impatient troll that lives in my brain likes to have a timeline for everything that he eagerly waits for.

        So a rough update about when do you expect book 3 to come out would help me settle the troll.

      • We only hope you won’t go the way of Rothfuss or Sanderson – abandoning your characters and fans after your first successes. It would be a tragedy of epic proportions not to hear from Rezkin for another 6 years.

        Please keep posting regular updates – even if its just to let us know youre busy and havent made progress it is still reassuring to us readers to see you haven’t abandoned us xx

  1. Are you ever going to release a timeline update? I notice that you keep sidestepping that question. While waiting isn’t fun, it is understandable. However, being a mushroom (kept in the dark and fed…) is not. So whatever your news, please provide an update on a timeline.

  3. Kel kade. Absolutely loved book 1 and book 2. Rough estimate of when I can expect my next fix. Won’t hold you to it but will be nice to prepare my highs and lows. Thank you kindly. P.s. nick is the best possible narrarator for you books. You two make a great team.

    • I agree Nick Podehl Is one of my favorite narrators and by far one of the best I have ever heard. Combining his narration with your books Is just amazing. I very rarely ever give 5 stars to books because my standards are so high that they have to be perfect in order to receive a perfect mark. Your books are two of the very few I have given 5 stars, out of the hundreds I have read and listened too. I just wanted to thank you for your books and I look forward to reading/ listening to the rest of them when they come out.

  9. I loved the books I’ll definitely have to buy the hard covered books! Not many books can truly capture the reader in another world but reading this book made me feel like I was right there beside Rezkin! Thank you for such an amazing couple of books keep up the good work! But do you think you could give a release date update? I’m dying to see what happens next

  10. Kel, the only thing that I had a hard time envisioning is Dark Tiding’s hair. I understand the need for a disguise but the multicolored hair just didn’t fit and made the character seem cartoonish rather than imposing. If this ever became a movie, I don’t see your viewers buying it. He’d look like a clown.

      • Yes, we do have quite a major clown in our country who is terrorizing the world these days, don’t we? I just finished your second book. It is the best read I’ve had in a long while. I had really gotten tired of heroes who lose their powers, or whose awesome powers are never a match for villains possessed of more awesome powers. I am hoping that in your next book, at least one of your female characters matures enough to be admirable. You have several quite admirable male characters, but the three females are either immature, or have not come into their own yet.

    • Considering the setting, I don’t think any of the colors were particularly bright except the blond locks. So if you picture them all being fairly natural colored, excluding ginger, I think that it would fit somewhat well.

  11. I’m leaving on a deployment very soon and loved your first 2 books. I have an 18 hot flight and would enjoy spending that time between eating, sleeping, and reading your book. Is there any chance it will be released within 2 months?

  12. Hello, I just destroyed your 2 books in 3 days (audio version: podehl’s performance is excellent even at 2x speed). Pardon my French but holy fucking shit, I haven’t benn this excited through a story since reading David gemmell, I loved the action you smashed into the first book with all the clever little bits attached, 2nd book felt kind of sluggish but I get you had to make a lot of character development amd drama happen and I think you have set it up for an awesome series of books, I thought the multi coloured hair was genius. Keep up the good work, I hope book 3 comes out soon to tickle my neurons.

    • Did you actually listen to the books in 2x speed? Didn’t the characters all end up sounding like chipmunks? A chipmunk Raven might be too cute to be imposing. Still, I’m glad you’re enjoying the series in your own special way! 😁

      • Yeah man it does sound like that for the first couple of minutes before your brain adapts but once you’re up to speed its just the same except I get to listen to more of the book at a time. I’ve been listening to audiobooks for over a year now and you just gradually build up you’re speed.
        Raven is awesome, I love how he knows so much yet understands so little about ‘normal stuff’ lol ot makes some rather funnny situations that that add to your awesome story.
        Can’t wait for the next one, ill make sure to have an audible credit for as soon as it’s out 😀

  13. Sooooo May Now – missed the December hopeful huh… just checking that the alternate dimension you mentioned didn’t sneak up and suck you in after all!!

    Don’t worry I don’t have any cabbages, I’m a meatarian and feel its cruel to eat innocent veggies. However I do throw a mean chicken leg!

    I understand genius takes time, and books and life doubly so… so no demands or pressure I just wondered if you had settled on a title for Book 3 yet??

  14. Almost June now, hoping for a release of book 3 for my birthday. I absolutely love your books, showed them to my wife and she loved them as well. Gonna share them with all my friends too. Would be horrendous to leave us all on this cliffhanger!
    Any clue on a Release Date?
    Do you have a title yet?

  15. Cudos Kel Kade! King’s characteristics completely captivate. Compelling chronicle continuously cultivates contentment. Keep concentrating on quality, career can’t careen catastrophically. Conceivably quantity can cause curtailed cortege. Careful contemplation causes commendatory (a)ccomplishments. Cantankerous kids commentary considering cunctation causes concentric conversations.
    Constantly and completely conscientious,

  16. So I finished nick pohdel’s (spelling?) reading of your masterpiece because I loved the work he has done on the king killer chronicles, but it seems, like the author of that series, you let us wait after book 2. You built such a wonderful character that both suffers from the too perfect and too flawed characteristics so well. I’m captivated and I’m glad to have read (above) that nick will be reading your next work to us, my question, is there any word as to when?

  17. So I just smashed both books in 2 1/2 days and I was listing on normal speed so I haven’t had much sleep, I regret noting of course. I just had to come and say I absolutely love this series and it’s characters, you snuck up on me like a raven from the shadows and stole the crown from a top my favorite series cover, as to be expected by someone who has mastered all the skills. Book 3 isn’t out but I am not disappointed in that fact, take as long as you need to keep the content of your books as masterful as they already are!
