The King part:
Solaris are doing a ‘Start a Series’ promotion, selling the first book (e-book) for 99c this weekend. They’ve selected The King’s Bastard from King Rolen’s Kin series. (You can find it here).
The Cat part:
I don’t want to get into the great debate about the difference between cat people and dog people. We’ve always had cats but our daughter has bought a Pug. He’s actually a Jack Russel crossed with a Pug so he’s a Jug, (a rescue dog 13 mths old).
Of course, he thought the cats were put in the house for his entertainment and they weren’t impressed. It was not that he wanted to hurt them, he just wanted to play but the cats didn’t understand. So they are now outside cats (with a very comfortable insulated shed to sleep in) and Manny the Jug is now an inside dog. Here he is at the dog park with our eldest daughter.

No more sleeping in my desk drawer, little black cat.
No more getting in the way as I type, Sassy cat.

It’s been a crazy busy year with ups and downs but here it is at last, book four of King Rolen’s kin, King Breaker, looking very cool, thanks to Clint Langley!
As Bernard from Black Books says, ‘You’ll laugh, you’ll cry. It’ll change your life.’ (You’ll have to imagine the Irish accent).
But seriously, big sigh of relief.
I’ve had some queries about how the timeline for the KRK books unfold and one very helpful reader (waves to FyreGarnet) suggested I do a timeline. So here it is. I hope this makes it clear, let me know if it still confusing. Sometimes you get so close to something, you can’t see it clearly.
At last I’m allowed to tell…
Solaris Press will be releasing The King’s Man on December 6th!
This book grew from something a friend said to me. She refused to believe that Garzik was dead and, when I looked into it, she was right. I realised there was a whole story waiting to be told, Garzik’s story, one that Byren, Piro, Fyn and Orrade didn’t know about.
Not yet, anyway. At the moment I’m writing KRK book four where all the threads of the narrative will join together in a thrilling, roller coaster of an ending with explosions and betrayal, sacrifice and heroism. (Well, maybe not explosions).
I love the way the internet puts writers in touch with readers. Today Bob from Beauty in Ruins review blog sent me this!
He’s sitting on the edge of a lake somewhere reading book three of KRK. Go for it Bob. Wish I was doing the same thing!
I’ve had someone ask - if they liked King Rolen’s Kin, what should they read next.
It seemed like the perfect opportunity to ask readers for their opnion so I’m throwing it open to you.
What authors/fantasy trilogies would you recommend for someone who loved the KRK trilogy?
