New two-book deal!

It's the news I've been waiting to announce -- I've signed up for two new books set in the world of The Grim Company! Both books will be standalone novels, taking place some time after the events of the trilogy. 

The first novel, provisionally entitled Kingdom, will be set in the sun-kissed south and feature a largely new cast together with a few returning faces. The aim is to keep the gritty feel of my previous books, while channeling Gemmell and others to achieve a slight evolution in tone from the unrelenting grimdark. More of an emphasis on epic (dare I say, heroic) fantasy with a dash of horror, perhaps...

Head of Zeus will publish both novels. Audio rights have sold to Audible. The bad news is that Kingdom is still in the early stages of writing -- and it's likely to be a considerably longer novel than any individual book in the trilogy, perhaps upwards of 175,000 words. Don't count on seeing it before late 2018 at the earliest.

I also intend to publish a short story every couple of months. These will be made available on Amazon or through various publications. My first short story, "A Ring to Rule Them All," can be found in this month's issue of Grimdark Magazine.

Thank you to all my readers for your continued love and support!
