Michael J Sullivan's epic fantasy series - The Riyria Revelations - was originally self-published by the author and became a Kindle best-seller with all five volumes riding high in the charts for long enough to catch the attention of a major trade publisher. Now Orbit are publishing the series in print omnibus editions in a deal that sees the books reach a much wider audience on both sides of the Atlantic. Way to go, Mister Sullivan!
The first volume, Theft of Swords, has just been published, with two further volumes, Rise of Empire, and Heir of Novron to follow in subsequent months.
"THEY KILLED THE KING. THEY PINNED IT ON TWO MEN. THEY MADE A BAD DECISION... Royce Melborn is a superb thief, his partner, Hadrian Blackwater is a skilled mercenary. Together they make a profitable living as agents-for-hire to wealthy nobles until someone sets them up to take the blame for the murder of the king. Captured and sentenced to death the two are saved by an unlikely woman with a simple demand that will change the lives of the thieves, the course of a kingdom, and the foundation of an empire."
