more on ebook sales 2016, DEMONSOULED

Some more about ebook sales for 2016.

FROSTBORN was my bestselling series at 66% of the total, with THE GHOSTS/GHOST EXILE coming in at 12.2%. In a close third was the DEMONSOULED/MASK OF THE DEMONSOULED series at 11.7% of the total.

DEMONSOULED OMNIBUS ONE was the bestselling book out of the entire series, since it was on sale earlier in the summer.

SOUL OF DRAGONS the bestselling individual book, and MASK OF DRAGONS was the bestselling book of the MASK OF THE DEMONSOULED trilogy.

(I’m detecting a theme. I should write more about dragons!)

It’s been 16 years since I first wrote DEMONSOULED, so it’s very gratifying that it’s still selling after all these years. Thanks everyone!

MASK OF SPELLS excerpt

Let’s close out the week with a short excerpt from MASK OF SPELLS:

Perhaps Mazael could not trust her…but he could trust to her hatred.

Common enemies, Richard Mandragon had once told Mazael, made for a safer alliance than friendship or bonds of blood. The old lord had ruled the Grim Marches with an iron hand for nearly twenty years, so he had been right about that.

On the other hand, his teachings had twisted his son Lucan, so perhaps Mazael ought to take them with a grain of salt.

MASK OF SPELLS excerpt

Editing MASK OF SPELLS today, so let’s have a short excerpt!

“Among you, only Lady Romaria has been to the underworld before, so I must warn you of some of the more common dangers. A wide variety of mushrooms grows in the underworld. Some of them glow. Do not eat any of the mushrooms, glowing or otherwise.”

“While I may not possess your wisdom,” said Sigaldra, “I like to think I have at least sufficient wisdom not to eat a glowing mushroom.”

“You would be surprised.”

Frostborn #12?

A few readers have emailed to ask (and my website has gotten a lot of Google searches) asking when the twelfth FROSTBORN book, FROSTBORN: THE DWARVEN PRINCE is coming out.

Before the end of 2016! I’m almost done with MASK OF SPELLS, and once that is done, I’m going to get cracking on FROSTBORN: THE DWARVEN PRINCE.

After that, the plan is to alternate writing FROSTBORN and CLOAK GAMES books until FROSTBORN is finished in mid-2017.
