The savvier among you might have noticed that it’s been taking me an unusually long time to finish my current project, the next REBEL STARS book.

Well, that’s because I wasn’t writing one Rebel Stars book. I was writing two of them. And I’ve finished the series.

Oh, and if you haven’t started the series yet, I’ve also put the first three books in a box set on both ebook and audiobook. And the ebook box is temporarily just $0.99. And all of these are available everywhere.

If you’re completely unfamiliar with the series, Rebel Stars is a space opera set 1000 years in the future of the BREAKERS series, where a motley crew must come together to expose—and fight back against—a deep conspiracy that threatens to destroy the human species.

Without further ado, let’s get started on the insanely long list o’ links!

Next up is STARDUST, book #5 and the grand finale:

Fun thing about this book: when I start a series, I usually have no idea how it’s going to end. But one of the very last scenes in STARDUST, right before the epilogue, is something I’ve had in mind since before I wrote a single word of these books. Finally getting to write it after three and a half years of waiting felt pretty special.

Onto the box set! This includes books 0, 1, and 2 of the series: REBEL, OUTLAW, and TRAITOR. Like the others, the ebook can be found on Amazon, Amazon UK, iBooks, Kobo, Nook, and Google Play. The audiobook’s on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

(I was hoping to have RONIN out on audio by now, too, but I ran into a snag in production. But I’ll try to get the remaining three in audio over the course of 2018.)

In hindsight, I’m really happy I decided to write these back to back. I knew FREEFALL was going to end on a cliffhanger and I really didn’t want to make everyone wait another 12-18 months until I could clear out the time to write and publish the final novel. One of my chief goals is to always deliver the end of a series in a timely manner. I hope I’ve done so for you once again.

This has also cleared the decks for me to focus on the CYCLE OF GALAND in 2018. I have nothing else major going on, so I’ll have two new Galand books out year, likely one in the spring and one in late summer/early fall, which means the respective audiobooks will probably be out in the summer and late fall. I’ve already started plotting book #5 and will start the actual writing after I’ve had a few more days to recover from the last six months of work!

Is that it? Yes, I think that’s it for now. I very much hope you enjoy the rest of the series.


For reference, here’s the complete REBEL STARS series in order:

REBEL (Book 0)

OUTLAW (Book 1)

TRAITOR (Book 2)

RONIN (Book 3)

I’ve mentioned this elsewhere, but forgot about here. Oops.

As the title says: THE LIGHT OF LIFE, The Cycle of Galand #4, is out on audio! Find it on Audible, Amazon, and iBooks.

TLoL AUdioTo anticipate a few questions: Yep—Tim Gerard Reynolds is still narrating.

As for when the next one’s out, as if getting two audiobooks within the span of three months isn’t awesome and great and satisfying enough to last through the rest of the decade: I’m currently working on new REBEL STARS. After that, it’s right back to Galand #5 (and #6), so expect the ebook version of the next installment next spring—hopefully early next spring—and the audiobook two or three months after that.

Authors are rarely the best judge of their own work, but I really like how this one turned out. Hope you guys do, too.

Today marks a bold new day in Cycle of Galand #4 releasing: THE LIGHT OF LIFE, The Cycle of Galand #4, has now been released. You can find it on Amazon, Amazon UK, and paperback.

TLOL-ebook-2For audiobook listeners, the wait will be shorter this time. THE LIGHT OF LIFE is tentatively scheduled for an August 15 audiobook release. Note this date isn’t chiseled in stone until the preorder’s up, but that’s the plan as it stands. As always, the inestimable Tim Gerard Reynolds will provide narration.

Oh, and if you’re new to the series, you can start with THE RED SEA, The Cycle of Galand #1. Or start at the very beginning with THE CYCLE OF ARAWN, the complete epic fantasy trilogy, which retails for a lowly $4.99, or is free to read through Kindle Unlimited.

I’ll have some updates on future projects, including further books in this series, in a couple of weeks. For now, go read and be merry, for Elon Musk hasn’t yet invented books that can read themselves.

Good news, everyone! THE WOUND OF THE WORLD: The Cycle of Galand #3 is now out on audiobook! You can find it on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.

As always, it’s narrated by the inimitable Tim Gerard Reynolds. If that’s not enough to convince you to pick it up, I don’t know what will. Threats of violence? No, too far. I’ve got it! Threats of threats of violence. Yes, that should do nicely.

Anyway, I know book three had some delays getting into audio, so the double-extra good news for the day is that book four, THE LIGHT OF LIFE, is already being recorded by Tim as we speak. Based on previous production times, I’d expect it out sometime this fall.

For the ebook and paperback for #4, I’m still waiting on the cover art, but I’m hoping to have it out mid-late May.

That would appear to be all for now. Except for you, who can go pick up 21+ hours of entertainment that is THE WOUND OF THE WORLD all for one measly Audible credit.

Sweet news, people of discerning taste. The wait is over. CAPTIVES: Breakers #6 has come to audiobook. You can find it on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

captives-audioWant some even better news? Book #7 is scheduled to hit audio in December. And Book #8, the finale, should be out early next year. I expect that the only people more excited to have the full series on audio than I am is you all.

If you’re new to BREAKERS, it’s a post-apocalyptic series about a small cast of characters who struggle to survive as the world ends — not just once, but twice. The first three audiobooks are available together on Audible for just one credit. That’s 42+ hours of listening. At the moment of this post, the set has 1010 ratings and a 4.3 average. With the remainder of the series on the horizon, now’s a great time to jump in.

Gosh. With sales pitching like that, just imagine how good the writing in the books must be!

I am excited, stoked, and chuffed to announce that Dante and Blays are back in the saddle! THE WOUND OF THE WORLD: The Cycle of Galand #3 is now live. You can find it on Amazon and Amazon UK.

TWOTWIf you’re not a Kindle user, the Kindle app should work on most devices. If you can’t or won’t use Amazon, please email me at edwrobertson AT gmail and we’ll work something out. If you’re a paperback reader, I hope to have that version out within a week or two.

By the way, I get the impression a lot of people think this series will be a trilogy. Well how does it feel to be WRONG? Does it feel great? It should, because this series will actually be five or six books long. My intent is to start writing #4 by December (I have something else to wrap up first) and publish it by April 2017.

When will the audiobook for THE WOUND OF THE WORLD come out, you ask? Well, I’ve just sent the manuscript off to Podium, the audiobook publisher for this series. Tim Gerard Reynolds is slated to record it next month. After that, it’ll take some time for post-production, and a couple-three weeks to be submitted to and approved by Audible.

This is a long-winded way of saying it won’t be overnight. That said, it should be out early next year, perhaps even January. I know Podium will be eager to get rollin’ with it. Speaking of all these things! The Voice Arts Awards have nominated Tim and THE RED SEA for 2016 Best Narrator in a Fantasy novel. Winners will be announced November 13. *glares at VAAs* I’m sure the VAAs will make the correct decision.

Getting back to THE WOUND OF THE WORLD, I always feel a certain amount of trepidation publishing a new book—what if I’ve suddenly turned into a pumpkin and can’t be trusted to write a manual for a coffee machine, let alone a worthy sequel to my previous books??—but I am, at the moment, feeling pretty good about this one. It expands the world while leading to a story that I think will be pretty epic.

Enough blathering by me, either you’re going to buy it or you’re not. My recommendation: get it.

RONIN, Rebel Stars #3, is now live! You can find it just about everywhere: Amazon, Amazon UK, B&N Nook, iBooks, Kobo, Google Play, and paperback.

ronin-finalI’m pretty pleased with this one—the plot takes a major leap forward, and sets the stage for the final phase of the story. That’ll take two more books to tell. I have to get back to some other series first, so look for the ending next year.

Oh, and if you’re new to the series, for the next few days, REBEL (Rebel Stars #0) is just $0.99. (It’s on sale at every other store, too.) If you’re an audiobook person, check it out on Audible.

Following RONIN, I’m working on a Sekrit Project, which should be out later this year. As soon as that’s wrapped up, I’ll be moving on to THE CYCLE OF GALAND #3. Expect that one sometime this fall.

Well, if I want to hit those deadlines, I’d better return to work. As always, hope you enjoy the latest book. Drop me a comment if you’ve got any questions.

In case you hadn’t already preordered, THE SILVER THIEF: THE CYCLE OF GALAND #2 is now live on audiobook. You can find it on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

It’s currently doing battle with some truly mighty foes. Its next opponents may be too great a match to overcome…but Dante and Blays will battle to the end. For death and glory!

(If you’re new to this series, start with THE RED SEA: THE CYCLE OF GALAND #1. Also on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.)

silverthiefI have a release date! THE SILVER THIEF: The Cycle of Galand, Book 2 is coming to audio on May 24th. You can order it on Audible and Amazon.

As with the previous books, THE SILVER THIEF is narrated by the immensely talented Tim Gerard Reynolds. I can’t say enough about Tim—he’s brought these characters to life. I hope I get to continue working with him for a very long time.

I’ll be starting work on the third book in the Cycle of Galand next month, meaning it should be out in ebook and paperback sometime this fall. The audiobook will take a little time to produce from there, but I’d bet my publishers will have it out before the year’s up. (Oh—still no word on the remaining Breakers books, but I’ll keep asking.)

Okay, back to work for me. As always, hope you enjoy. The 24th can’t come soon enough!

After a busy month in audiobookland, here’s yet another piece of news: TRAITOR, Rebel Stars #2, is now out in audio!

Go ahead and buy it if you want—but I’ve decided to give away a whole bunch of copies of any book in the REBEL STARS series. If you’d like a copy of book 0, 1, or 2, sign up for my audiobook mailing list:

Add your Audible email and I’ll gift a copy your way. After, feel free to unsubscribe; this is just the easiest way for me to keep track of things.

Hope this helps keep you busy until the next Rebel Stars book, which should be out in two or three months. Happy listening!
