Books of the Raksura #3

The third Raksura book finally has a title: it's going to be The Siren Depths. As of now, publication date is still January or February of 2013.

Besides digging dead bushes out of my yard, I've been working on the extras section for my web site for the Raksura books. It's going to be called The Three Worlds Compendium. Among other things, it's going to have the material in the appendices in the back of the books, plus a little new material. Hopefully that will help people write fanfiction. (As I've said before, I think fanfiction for my books is awesome, I'm just not supposed to read it.) One thing I can link to from the compendium is fan art, so if anybody does some or runs across some, let me know and I'll add a link.

Con or Bust has memberships available for Lunacon, Balticon, Odyssey Con.

Juliet E. McKenna has a blog post on Darkening Skies So if Darkening Skies, the second book of The Hadrumal Crisis trilogy is published in the US on 28th February and in the UK on the 1st of March, what happens on this leap year day of 29th February?

Well, for a start, you can go and read the opening chapter, wherever you might be, over on the Solaris Editors’ Blog.

I’ve also done an interview with the Solaris chaps talking about this book and trilogy as well as what I write and read more generally.

Uh oh, is Moon going underwater? :)

You are the best ^-^ I am sure that there are persons who would appreciate such a resource :D

Ooh, I like the title!

I love it! I am a huge fan (ha ha) of fan fiction. I've always thought it's a complement to the show/book/movie if people want to write fan fic... I've never understood why some authors get so offended by it. Thanks for being awesome!

Love the title, really looking forward to the book!

third raksura book=yay!

almost a year to wait=groan!

I adore this series. I have it on my ipod and my kindle. Will "The Siren Depths" also be released on audible? I hope so (it's how I discovered the books in the first place). I really enjoyed Christopher Kipiniak's reading of the previous raksura books.

If there's some Raksura fan fiction out there (and I think it's great that you're okay with it), I hope I can find it.... I'll need something to feed my addiction until "The Siren Depths" comes out!

Thank you very much! :) I don't know about an audible version yet. I think it will depend very heavily on how well the audible versions of The Cloud Roads and especially The Serpent Sea are selling. Audible won't continue to do a series (or even a trilogy) if the sales of the first recordings aren't what they expected. I really loved his reading of them too, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

If there's fanfiction out there, one of the best places to look is this site: http://archiveofourown.org/

Thank you for the link!

I'll keep all my fingers and toes crossed too that the sales for your Raksura audible books are good enough for audible to continue with the series. I say 'series' because I'm greedy, I'm hoping "Books of the Raksura" will go beyond a trilogy. I've been reading fantasy books for years, and Moon and Jade and the rest of your characters in the Raksura books are so refreshing I think you'd break my heart if you stopped at only 3 books.

Lovely title! I can't wait. :D

Great title! I hope it means what I think it means... ;-)

This is just a random thought i had, but i think there should be a
Fell on at least one book, even if in the background I think it
would be great for the imagination to have something to work with.
Or even a groundling form or Arbora, THAT would be cool.
No one needs to take this seriously it was just an idea.

It would be really interesting to see, but I don't have any real say over what goes on the cover. The publisher is the one who tells the cover artist what scenes to use.

A quick question if you don't mind, are the Raksura books going to be a trilogy or a series?
Cant wait for the the third book!

I want to do at least one more book, but at this point I'm not sure if the publisher wants to do another one. I'll probably know sometime after the third book comes out, and I'll post about it as soon as I have any info.

Thank you!
