October Update 2016

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!

    I just finished book 2 as well and I loved it!!! I actually stumbled upon your books in Audible and I have to say your on par with Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson. Two of the best books I’ve had the pleasure in listening to. Since December is so far away for some of us crazies here who want book 3 now. Have you considered releasing a few chapters before the book actually comes out? A little teaser perhaps? Something to get our feet wet and excited?

    Thanks and hopefully you can encourage Podium Publishing can release the audio book the same time the ebook comes out.

      Thank you for your kind praise. I appreciate the encouragement. Podium would be more than happy to release the next book as soon as possible, but I must first finish writing and editing it. Then I will be able to release the ebook and get it to Podium so they can record it. If you listened to the audio and haven’t already left a review on Audible, I encourage you to do so. That way Podium and other listeners will also feel your appreciation. Thanks for writing!

    I took a chance, having an extra audible credit and an empty long weekend lying around when book 1 popped up on my recommended list. I think I was only 1/3 of the way through when I bought book 2, and then had to go get the ebook editions so I could read along.

    I can absolutely say the last book I devoured as fast as these two was Words of Radiance, so know that I hold your work in the highest of company.

    December (or whenever it gets released) cannot come soon enough, and I’m excited it’s not going to be the last either.

      I’m glad that you were not disappointed. Thank you for trying out my series. I hope you appreciate the sequels just as much.

    I have just read the first 2 KDT books for the 4th time in as many months, am totally hooked and am counting the days till 3rd book is out. These are two of the best books I have read in many years with a depth of character that is incredible. I have read 1000’s of books since getting addicted to fantasy novels in my teens when I first read The Lord of the Rings and the KTD titles now list in my top reads. I have already recommended the titles to a number friends.

      I couldn’t do better than to receive such high praise from an avid reader! I greatly appreciate you recommending my books to your friends. I hope they enjoy them as much as you have. Thanks for your support!

    Finally got my hands on a kindle and found your books in the kindle unlimited. Read the first one in 2 days(I got really into it ) got sad looking for another thinking the second wasn’t out yet then found the second and finished it in another 3 days. I have to say I’m extremely excited for the 3rd book. Trying to find another series in the meantime with a similar tone but having no luck.

    Just came in here to say that you’ve got another 2 fans, got my sister into the books as well and I’ll be buying the 3rd book whenever it does come out 🙂

    Will book 3 be released in audio format alongside the text version? If not, do you know when?

    The series in general is interesting and somewhat fresh, but you are laying the conspiracy thing a bit thick, the way the characters court treason is not very plausible, it’s almost as if you assume they are are perfectly rational which is not the case with humans and fear. I found that to be the biggest issue to be honest, it just isn’t plausible to assume that all the involved characters are rational *and assume* that the others are rational too – this is why most conspiracies are betrayed, it’s first come first serve to the largest chance of not ending up dead.

      The audiobook will likely be released within a few months of the enojo release . Thanks for your interest. I hope you enjoy it.

    Thank you for a very enjoyable read! Looking forward to the next. I will be honest and hope that the audiobook version happens near or same time as e-book publication as I enjoy that medium. Sincere congrats on a job well done! Question though, do you know how many there will be for this series?

      I’m glad you’re enjoying the series. It’s also good to hear that people like the audiobooks. In answer to your question, there will be more than three. I know, my tendency toward specificity is astounding. Have fun reading and listening! 😀

        I thought it was going to be a trilogy. Thanks for letting me know there is even more to look forward too!
