The Full Collection
This is something I have been contemplating for some time. I have wanted to bind the five volumes of “Shadows of Siernod” into one single electronic volume to make it easier for readers to discover Fist La’brau and maintain a chronological flow. From a business perspective, it also makes good sense as it will be much easier to market these five exciting tales. The main reason I have not already done this is because I wanted to put the time into creating fresh material that my readers demand and I enjoy providing.
In a market that is ever challenging to capture, I think by allowing readers to purchase all five stories while saving money they will be more inclined to read the entire series as one event rather than stop after the first story and get distracted with some mega fantasy that ties up their reading time for a month.
So, The Anvil of Discord, The World’s Rim, The Sewers of Thuron, Barbarians of the Forgotten Pass, and A Castle of Shadows will soon be bound together in one tome.
In addition, I will add a forward that will lend a little insight to my thinking, my creations, and the world of Siernod. I might also, if I can make it fit, add a short story that is not part of the series. So, if you have already read the series you may still find some value in this book. These are all just ideas and the project is in its infancy so please don’t quote me on everything yet.
So, keep on the lookout. This is something I have committed to doing though I do not have a definite timetable at this time. One thing I am not going to do is allow it to significantly impact the flow of new ideas and fresh stories. I am ever committed to crafting fine sword and sorcery tales about the ever crestfallen swordsman, Fist La’brau.
