SUN EATER NEWSLETTER

THE YEAR OF THE SUN EATER HAS ARRIVED!

Happy New Year, everyone!

2022 is looking to be a big year for the Sun Eater universe, with TWO novels out, another short story ebook collection, and more! So I figured what better way to ring in the new year than to give you all the release schedule in one easy place? 
 
SWORD & PLANET* -- January 25

KINGDOMS OF DEATH -- March 22

TIME TROOPERS (featuring Sun Eater story "The Archaenaut") -- April 5

TALES OF THE SUN EATER, VOL. 2 -- June/July: Date to Come

NO GAME FOR KNIGHTS (featuring Sun Eater story "Gutter Ballet") -- September 6

QUEEN AMID ASHES & OTHER STORIES -- Q4 2022: Date to Come

BOOK FIVE** -- December 6

WORLDS LONG LOST (featuring Sun Eater story "Echidna") -- December 6


*eBook available now, paperback was delayed due to supply chain issues.
**Title reveal coming soon.

Now, these dates are all subject to a little flexibility, as production issues may occur (note, for instance, that KINGDOMS OF DEATH was pushed back 2 weeks from its original date on March 8), but this is the plan! As you can see, we have a pretty busy year, which is very exciting! In addition to all this, I'll be working on BOOK SIX, and will be trying to increase the amount of videos and livestreams on my YouTube channel as well. It's going to be a busy year, and I'm thrilled to be sharing it with each of you.

FROM THE AUTHOR'S DESK

Question: So how is writing going?

Answer: Pretty well!

I'm currently working on chapter 16/47 of BOOK FIVE and am on track to complete revisions by the beginning of March. Once I hit chapter 19, almost all of the book is written, so progress should hugely accelerate after that. Most of the revision work on BOOK FIVE needed to happen in the first third, and that is all more or less done at this point. It will have a bit of an accelerated editing process to make that December production deadline, but while I wait for editorial feedback in February and March, I'll be working on some short fiction, namely the above-mentioned story "Echidna," which will also be releasing in December as a part of the WORLDS LONG LOST anthology (my last anthology with Baen Books for the foreseeable future). 

Then it'll be into BOOK SIX around April or so!

Recommendation

My eBook Collection

TALES, VOL. 1

In case you missed it, earlier this year I released an eBook collection of SEVEN (count 'em!) short stories set in the Sun Eater universe, three featuring Hadrian, four not. 

If you're looking for something short to check out between books, or you're sick of waiting for KINGDOMS OF DEATH, I think you'll find that TALES OF THE SUN EATER, VOL. 1 is exactly what the doctor (meaning me) ordered:

Photo Update

SWORD & PLANET did not hit shelves before Christmas like it was supposed to, thanks to some printing delays on account of supply chain issues. But it IS coming out later this month in paperback (the eBooks is available now). Expect an email later this month, but if you want to pre-order it now, you can get your hands on QUEEN AMID ASHES, a full-length Hadrian POV novella that's a direct sequel to HOWLING DARK! It's one of my favorites out of all the shorter stories I've written, and I really hope you all will check it out. You can pre-order it via Amazon right here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1982125780/
