Robert Redick Lives!

Many of you may have noticed that Robert has been quiet since the end of September, when he posted the UK and US covert art for the third Chathrand Voyage novel, The River of Shadows; well, he’s back, and as entertaining as ever!

On Tuesday passed he posted an update about the intense process that is writing, a company called CHEMIPLASTICA (if you don’t laugh at the end, well, you’ve got a difficult sense of humour to satisfy!), and updates on The River of Shadows and Book IV, The Night of the Swarm. 🙂

Also, Robert’s latest post is not only an interesting read for fans but also a snapshot of just what happens in a writer’s brain when having to make a very difficult but important decision: he gives us all the titles he considered for Book III.

And yes, I am planning to read and review Robert’s work – I’ve got copies of both Book 1 and Book II and just have to damn well get to them – there’s something about an epic fantasy adventure on the sea that really sounds awesome, and I’ll be getting to them soon, hopefully. 🙂

As always,

John Jarrold’s Corner: Cover Art and Twelve News!

Hey Guys and Girls, here’s some news from your favourite agent and mine – John Jarrold! He’s got the beautiful cover of Robert VS Redick’s second novel for us, and some news about Jasper Kent’s Twelve! 🙂

The Rats and the Ruling Sea, Book 2 of the The Chathrand Voyage, will be available in the UK and in the Commonwealth in August! I’ve yet to read Book 1, The Red Wolf Conspiracy, but after reading the first chapter it’ll definitely jump to the top of my TBR list! 🙂

And in news about Jasper Kent’s excellent historical horror, Twelve:

Jasper Kent’s TWELVE, published in trade paperback by Bantam UK in January, is now number 11 on Borders UK’s overall paperback fiction bestseller list – many congratulations, Jasper!

This is even more impressive because it is competing directly with every recently-published – and much cheaper – mass-market paperback title, sale for sale.

This is wonderful news for Jasper and John! 🙂
