It’s finally here — the big secret I’ve been hinting at for months! When Amazon Publishing offered me the Kindle First deal for my new book last year, I was giddy with excitement but couldn’t talk about it openly. Here’s how it works. For Amazon Prime members, you get to select one free book a month through the Kindle First program. This is going on in the US, UK, and Australia for The Queen’s Poisoner. But it gets even better. If you’re not an Amazon Prime member and you still want to read it before the pub date (April 1st, no joke!), you can download the Kindle version now for a much reduced price. It’s a screaming deal for a brand new book.
But the news is better still. This is also my first book that 47North is publishing it in Hardcover. They rarely do this but I’ve been pushing for it all along and they’re taking a risk to see how my fans react to it. So if you have *ever* wanted to own one of my books in hardcover, please order this one! Get the kindle version too. No problem. Oh, and for those who will ask about the Audible version–yes, the narrator of the Muirwood series (Kate Rudd) performs the voices for this new trilogy.
This book will be followed on May 31 by the sequel, The Thief’s Daughter. And soon to follow, on September 6th, will be The King’s Traitor. Yes, all three books are coming out a few months apart. I’m so excited! Here’s the cover for Book 2, all ready to go.
So what’s it about? This is a new idea that has been bubbling inside me for years and I break new ground in this series. It’s a new world, a new magic system, and the characters–I’ve just fallen in love with them. In this series, the main protagonist starts as a young boy in book 1 then becomes a teenager in book 2 and an adult in book 3. I’ve never skipped so much history between books before, never written such a young hero before, but it really works. My editors absolutely loved this series and thought each book got better and better, upping the stakes and making the situations our hero faces more and more desperate. This series is an emotional roller coaster. I think you’re going to love it.
I’m so glad that I can finally talk about the Kingfountain series. 47North really wanted to surprise you (my fans) in a good way with this Kindle First deal and discount. I even went to Hollywood in December to film some short videos introducing the book. You can find them on the Amazon page about the book.
Thanks for being patient with the big secret. I hope you enjoy my newest creation and are entranced by it as well.
Hope to see some of you at LDStorymakers conference in May!
