    That is awesome. Congrats KMQ! I will definitely be finding these when they come out

    If I can ask, why the name change?

    edit: Just wanted to say that the books look fantastic. Great covers. Orbit is top notch, that's for sure.

    The covers are sweet aren't they? (I wasn't sure if it'd be too much to post them here)

    The name change as these are in a different sub genre to Fade to Black etc -- this is more adventure fantasy. Besides, everyone keeps calling me Julia at cons!

    Well I wish you nothing but amazing success. If they are half as good as Rojan I will be a happy man.

    I might need to order a signed one from you, to go with the Before the Fall copy I have signed ;)

    Amazing covers. And the description of the first book is definitely intriguing. I look forward to reading it in October.

    A bit slow on the uptake here (I blame school holidays). Looking forward to reading them.. and also not having to wait an eternity between instalments. I can only imagine how much work that was!

    Three book releases in three months! Fantastic, and I raise a glass to the success of them (that's like saying 'good luck' but knowing luck doesn't enter the equation, just damn good writing) Looking forward to reading them! I've got a sombrero, will that count in the competition? ;)

    Anyone taken a look at these yet? I like the sample on Amazon, but I'm not able to buy any more books until after Christmas.

    Brian, I read the first one and it was great. She does characters so well. I'd highly recommend it. I also like this time period for fantasy these days. Flintlock, guns and swords abound.
