There is a blurb on amazon uk now for destiny's conflict.....on the kindle version at least...

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Destinys-Conflict-Sword-Canon-Shadow-ebook/dp/B00HPLP6B K/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1492967502&sr=8-1

I am excited enough to be rereading a little bit of alliance of light...read "kewar tunnel" last week...reading a little bit of "necromancy happenings" too this week....I see Lysaer learnt some paravian cantrips (kind of missed that first time around)

Thanks, Neil, for posting that. I will be checking (later) to be certain it's the one I wrote for it. (editor has not read the book; so they can't! and the outline sent with the contract would be mucho spoilerific)

Right now, I'm finishing the tail end of the copy edit, it will go out very soon (tonight).

NOTICE TO READERS WHO HAVE A USER ACCOUNT AT R/FANTASY at Reddit - the forum is taking its 2017 POLL for best novels and series list...you have FOUR DAYS LEFT TO VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITES!

Getting a favorite book or book(s) on this list is incredible exposure for any author you enjoy.

DO fill out your number of preferences, to the limit of the rules. Please DO NOT go there and just vote for one author. That's spam.

Yep, that's the correct flap copy, non spoiling.

I have turned in the copy edit, so....publisher's next step is sending it to typesetting.

Occupied with a wee short story deadline, meantime (not Athera related).

Word is that Black Bargain, which will appear in Evil is a Matter of Perspective, will be heading to the printer soon. So there's a little tidbit backhistory story for you. And if you didn't get hold of The Decoy in Unfettered II, it's already out.

Ripping through a new little short at a very fast clip.

And still burning with excitement for your coming ride through Destiny's Conflict. Warning: you WILL throw the book at the wall, you WILL have some really REALLY hair raising stuff, and there will be reveals as you have never seen before this...yes. Excited.

NOTE: this is the LAST DAY TO VOTE at the r/fantasy list at Reddit. Vital visibilty if you love any book, and it takes VOTES to make the list at all (they will cut off the lower numbered books that got least support). All they want: is your TEN favorite titles, you don't have to order them, listing them IS the vote, it's just numbers, not placement. They only do this ONCE a year, and a lotta readers use it for a guideline to find stuff. This is a great forum for fantasy, well moderated and run, and not at all an unsafe place to post - it's a cut above most of the rest of the site, so don't let the 'reputation' scare you off. The mods there work very hard to keep the trolls out.

I've got the run up months to release for Destiny's Conflict to make ALL the difference in how this press run is handled. Every little bit of visibility, every new reader, counts. You all here are my best advocates. (Yes, I voted, but not for myself).

The book is in production at the proofer's. Page proofs will be soon.

Thanks to all who voted in the r/fantasy poll. No books of mine made the list - it would have taken 20 votes, and Light and Shadows received ten. The two honorable mentions did not count. If they had tallied downlist like last year, that would have shown up, but given they left the voting up for 2 weeks and had nearly a thousand entries to count, the cut off was 20. I appreciate the effort made, it means a lot.


   By Janny Wurts on Thursday, May 25, 2017 - 11:47 am: Edit Post

FINIS!!!!!

I turned in the page proof corrections 5 minutes ago, which means: my share of production on this book is DONE.

NOTE TO READERS: if you want the hardback of this book ORDER IT THE INSTANT YOU SEE THE PAGE FOR THE HARD BACK EDITION GO UP!!!!!!!!!!!!

I do not know how big the press run for these will be, but they are doing it for you collectors, so DO NOT DELAY making your order!!!!

I've had it preordered since March 30th. :D


   By Sleo on Thursday, May 25, 2017 - 01:57 pm: Edit Post

I ordered it from Barnes and Noble! Yay!


   By Pablo on Thursday, May 25, 2017 - 04:57 pm: Edit Post

Me, too! "Delivery will be 12th October" predicts my Amazon.de Oracle. Seems like shipment to Germany takes 7 days after US release (if 5th of October is correct...) Now what to do for preperations? :-D


   By Annette on Thursday, May 25, 2017 - 06:42 pm: Edit Post

Already pre-ordered, but I will be reading the kindle version on release day. :-)


   By Neil on Friday, May 26, 2017 - 06:47 am: Edit Post

Bring on that last instalment of WoLaS :-)

me too re: pre-order on kindle for DC... I have to admit I use the eReader much more now...


   By Brian Uri! on Friday, May 26, 2017 - 06:20 pm: Edit Post

Congratulations! Just preordered the hardcover.


   By Ben Crofts on Sunday, May 28, 2017 - 04:37 am: Edit Post

Yay - great news. Already had the book preordered at Amazon.


   By Melanie Trumbull on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 01:40 pm: Edit Post

Just pre-ordered my hardcover copy.


   By Auna on Sunday, June 04, 2017 - 05:46 am: Edit Post

I don't read papery book things anymore since I got my Kindle but I love Janny so much I preordered a hardback copy anyways! Gotta match the rest of the set. I got tingles!


   By Janny Wurts on Tuesday, June 06, 2017 - 10:49 am: Edit Post

Lovely to see all the support - thank you!


   By Jeff on Wednesday, June 07, 2017 - 10:12 pm: Edit Post

I've preordered the hardcover on Amazon.

I may get the ebook on Google Play to add to the sales there...


   By Dorothy on Saturday, June 10, 2017 - 08:15 am: Edit Post

Pre-ordered the kindle version this morning and gave in to temptation and ordered an Asimov kindle book too.


   By Auna on Saturday, June 10, 2017 - 02:43 pm: Edit Post

Ooo Asimov on Kindle! He was like my first sci-fi author (well him and Arthur C. Clarke). I have all their stuff in hardback/paperback. Sort of like Janny's books. However, I've bought most of Janny's stuff in ebook form now and will be properly prepared when the new book comes out (I reread the series each time a new book releases).

I was finally able to convince our local library to carry Mistwraith.


   By Janny Wurts on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 - 03:22 pm: Edit Post

David - thank you that's golden!


   By David Cornelson on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 - 10:10 pm: Edit Post

77 days.


   By Neil on Thursday, June 22, 2017 - 02:16 am: Edit Post

76...


   By David Cornelson on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 - 10:10 am: Edit Post

50 days...


   By Traithe Heir on Tuesday, August 08, 2017 - 01:49 am: Edit Post

29 days! Less than a month people. ;D


   By Traithe Heir on Tuesday, August 08, 2017 - 08:35 am: Edit Post

I saw now that we will only be able to get Destiny's Conflict on 01 October in South Africa. Even if I pre-order it.

Oh the agony of having to wait!


   By David Cornelson on Monday, August 14, 2017 - 10:24 am: Edit Post

We have to adjust to actual store publish dates I think. It's now October 1st at the earliest, so that leaves us at 38 days.

Still....38 days!!!


   By Melanie Trumbull on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 - 07:38 pm: Edit Post

Over at Amazon dot com, some "expletive deleted" kind of bookseller is taking orders to send a paperback Destiny's Conflict when it comes out,
with a price of over one hundred dollars.
From Spain.
I hate this. But what can you do.


   By Alan on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 - 08:31 pm: Edit Post

Melanie

Not the first time I have seen that. I reported one about six months ago who was claiming they had a copy ready to send right now for like 600.00 US.


   By Annette on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 - 04:11 am: Edit Post

Australian release date still seems to be 18th Sept.

Find out for sure on Thursday most likely, when I drop in at our only sci-fi/fantasy bookshop down this end of the world.


   By David Cornelson on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 - 02:41 pm: Edit Post

I can't count. It was 48 days. Now it's 39 days. (insert stupidly grinning emoji here)
