Whenever you translate a book from English into German, certain things get added. And by “things”, I mean the book suddenly becomes nearly twice as big as it was in the USA. And when you write a novel that’s more than 350,000 words in English, this can cause problems — like book bindings breaking!
Due to the length of The Broken Eye — and the additional length of translation a book into German — my German publisher has decided to publish the first half on August 17, 2015. We plan to follow with the second half in Winter 2015.
Here’s the cover for Sphären der Macht, part 1! Pre-order HERE.

On the other hand, I have to say being listed among all these great writers is hugely thrilling and quite an honor. It’s pretty awesome to be mentioned in the same breath with these fantasy greats. So if you want to get a list of great fantasy books to read, click over HERE. And if St. Jude — patron saint of lost causes — is your guy, maybe you can even throw out a vote for me. 😉
Graphic Audio’s The Broken Eye is now available in its entirety. You can order the just-released Part 3 of 3 HERE.
