Spellbreaker Pub Date!
As always this blog post is overdue. However, I am happy to report that I have just confirmed with Tor Books that the US publication of Spellbreaker will land either in late spring or early summer 2016. I’m crossing my fingers for a June publication date.
The coming year will also see the publication, at long last, of the audiobook versions of Spellwright and Spellbound–both from Audible Studios. By a twist of chance, the audiobooks will be narrated by Kevin Collins, whom I went to high school with. I was lucky enough to be in a few school plays with Kevin.
I don’t have too many other specifics on offer now. However, I can say that Tor is currently planning to ‘re-brand’ the trilogy with Spellbreaker, meaning that the cover art and package of the book will not be in the style of Todd Lockwood‘s excellent art for the first two US books. While I am sad that we won’t get to see what Todd would have dreamed up for the cover, I am excited to discover what new direction Tor takes the series.
I don’t know when Spellbreaker will come out in Europe or when any particular translation will publish; however, I’ll be sure to post those, and any other, details as soon as I have them.
In the meantime, I’m staying busy during my senior year in internal medicine residency and applying in cardiology. I’ve had a few more academic publications on topics ranging from how computers can teach doctors, to searching for joy as a doctor in training, to the unethical selling of medical screening tests. And work on my fourth novel continues apace. I’ll hope to have more details about where it is headed about the time Spellbreaker publishes.
