It’s official – KRK book 4

Here’s the official Press Release:

Jonathan Oliver, commissioning editor of Solaris Books, has commissioned a new novel by  Australian fantasy writer Rowena Cory Daniells.  The agent is John Jarrold, and the deal is for World English Language rights. The book is due for publication at the end of 2013.

Solaris have already published Daniells’ KING ROLEN’S KIN trilogy very successfully, and are publishing her OUTCAST CHRONICLES trilogy this year.  The new book, provisionally titled KING-MAKER, KING-BREAKER, will complete the story of King Rolen’s Kin.

Jonathan Oliver said: “It’s great to be working with Rowena again and I can’t wait to read this finale to her brilliant fantasy series.”

So I had better knuckle down and deliver KING-MAKERr, KING-BREAKER!

Reader reaching out…

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!

A question for fantasy lovers…

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?

More Bookplate Pretties!

or Fun with Photoshop!

I’ve been playing around with the covers of my books creating bookplates. The ones I did for King Rolen’s Kin have been really popular and I’ve gone through almost 2000 bookplates. Some I signed and sent to my publisher in the UK, others I signed on the spot at Supanovas around Australia. Here’s the King Rolen’s Kin bookplate.

And since The Outcast Chronicles will be coming out next year, I’ve created bookplates for them as well. Honestly, the covers Clint did were so gorgeous that I couldn’t resist, I had to do 3 bookplates!

I couldn’t forget my paranormal-crime book that’s coming out from ClanDestine Press in March next year. Here’s the bookplate for Price of Fame.

They should all the be printed in for Supanova in Brisbane Nov 4-6th. I’ll have my new bookmarks as well.

No excuse, just wanted to show off my pretties!

You know you’ve made it when …

You know you’ve made it when your books get sold in a boxed set, so you can imagine my excitement when I opened an email from my publisher that said King Rolen’s Kin Bundle, with this beautiful graphic!


It was only on closer reading that I realised they meant an E-Book Bundle.

So if you are into E-Books and you think $14.67 for the trilogy is a good price. Here’s the link.

And maybe one day, they’ll do a boxed set of my books. <grin>

Doing the Happy Dance!

Have you ever had a day where you left home on a 7am train, worked flat out all day, got home by 7pm exhausted and drained,  and then opened your email and found this:

The King’s Bastard has gone into its 4th reprint!

No wonder I’m doing the happy dance. For those of you who might be wondering here are the KRK  covers and for more info on the trilogy see King Rolen’s Kin.

Available in paperback and kindle from Amazon and all good bookstores.

(If you live in Australia you need to go to a specialist bookstore or order it in. But then we all want to support specialist bookstores, don’t we? Makes us feel virtuous).

I’d like to send a really big thank you to the readers who’ve enjoyed KRK and told their friends. I get emails every week from people asking where KRK book 4 is or where the next KRK trilogy is. I’m in the throes of writing the new trilogy right now. Just wish I could give up the day job to concentrate on it, but then all writers feel that way.

And if that wasn’t enough there’ve been some very nice comments on the covers for The Outcast Chronicles (here, many thanks to Magemanda!). Kudos must go to Solaris for choosing Clint Langley as the artist for both these trilogies and to Clint for the amazing work he’s done.

And here they are:

All in all, this was a very nice surprise to come home to!
