The UK paperback of Promise of Blood is out today! And there was much rejoicing! Huzzah! You can get it from Amazon, Waterstones, and your local bookstore. It looks like it's also available in Australia. If you're looking for a signed copy of the hardcover, looks like VJ Books still has them in stock. If you want something a little more interesting, there is one signed, lined, and dated copy left at Doodled Books.
I know what you're thinking. And yes, this looks strangely familiar. I'll tell you a secret. It's the same cover art. I know. Mind=blown. But since the cover art for the hardcover was so stinkin' gorgeous, they're using it in the US, the UK, on paperbacks and hardcovers. All willy-nilly! But the whole point of the paperback is to provide a smaller, cheaper book for fans to read. So here is the size difference:
And another comparison shot:
For those of you in the US, the trade paperback won't be out until April 8th, but you can pre-order it on Amazon or B&N. In the meantime, don't forget to pre-order The Crimson Campaign, or grab one of the Powder Mage short stories.
As consolation for the delay of The Crimson Campaign, I've been working on a new Powder Mage novella that I hope to release by the beginning of February. This one takes place many decades before the events in Promise of Blood and features someone we have not met before: Erika, Field Marshal Tamas' wife.
