When is the audio coming and will Zach Webber be narrating again?
I don’t know, but yes! Audible.com is my usual audio publisher and they have not offered for the book (yet!) but even if they do not, I will produce it myself. And I’ve already talked to Zach about the book and he’s excited to dive back into the Irin world. So it’ll be a wait, but there will be audio and I’m sure Zach will do an amazing job.
Will you be doing any signings this fall?
I don’t have any scheduled California right now, but I am excited to announce that I’ll be speaking and signing at GeekGirlCon in Seattle on Saturday, October 8, 2016. I’ll be speaking on a panel and then have signing table time, so I think I’ll be able to sell books, and I’ll be sure to have copies of The Staff and the Blade with me.
Which Irin Chronicles book is next and when will it be out?
I am working on the next Elemental World book next, A Stone Kissed Sea, with Lucien and Makeda (that will be the last in the Elixir story arc), then I’ll be writing a Benzin novella (the last one before their full series, which starts in 2017), and then I may or may not be returning to Cambio Springs. So I can’t tell you WHEN it will be, but I’m fairly certain that Leo and Kyra’s book will be next. (You guys had to see that one coming, right?)
Why wasn’t Rhys in The Staff and the Blade?
Um… I think he was somewhere complaining about the air-conditioning, I’m not sure.
Holy cow, the paperback is $16.99! Is it a doorstop and is there anywhere I can win a copy because I don’t way to pay that much?
I AM SO GLAD YOU ASKED! Yes, it’s a doorstop at almost 500 pages. And yes! I’m running paperback giveaways all this week and into next. In fact, there’s one going on right now on The Staff and the Blade Release page on Facebook.
I’m also doing a paperback giveaway right here on the website for a COMPLETE SET of the Irin Chronicles. So enter today and sign up to win!
That’s right: All. Four. Books.
This contest is open to everyone and will run until next Friday!
