    • Glad to hear it. I do think they’ll come out well. As to the New Zealand website – that must be something automatic through blogspot I do live in America and didn’t set it up. Didn’t even know about it until I read this πŸ˜‰

  1. Really enjoy your books, and especially your characters- they end up feeling like old friends. Looking forward to the new series!

  2. I’m going to end up purchasing an extra copy for our library of every book. Our scifi/fantasy section is pitiful! Trust me, I’m working on it. Thank you for contributing. Please consider a book donation to our library. Meanwhile I’m eagerly awaiting anything new by you. Great work, great editing, great reads. Don’t ever give up.

  3. I just finished Hollow World, and loved it. I’m so pleased to see it so popular. So I’ve caught up with your books. Now I’ll dig for short stories until this new series arrives. πŸ™‚

  4. Thank you for being open to your readers and allowing nearly anyone the opportunity to do more than simply read your books as they come out. It makes you stand out among others in your genre.

  5. Thanks for this opportunity. I am extremely excited about this new series. I always love reading your writings and delving into the story. Always great to read your posts online as well. Keep up the awesome job.

  6. Really looking forward to reading this book, and jealous of those who’ve already had beta reads
    Keep up the good work Michael!

  7. Thanks for this! Love your work!

    Since the books won’t be published until they are all written (I really like this by the way), what do you foresee the timeline to be on their releases?

    • Well, if they were being self-published (which to be honest is how I thought they were going to come out) then I would have control over such things. But Random House’s Del Rey imprint has made me an amazing offer so they will be doing the publishing and the timing is “their call.” We are still nailing down the various details, and as soon as I know I’ll post about it, but for now the only thing I know for sure is the first book is scheduled for the “Summer of 2016”. Regardless of when they release the books, I’ll have the flexibility to put out other titles, “around their releases” so if the spacing is far apart, I’ll fill in with books from Riyria Chronciles, Hollow World, or some new projects. If they are “close” then I’ll put out those other books after theirs are out.

  8. I’m quite amazed with your closeness to your fans. My wife emailed you about your books because she loved them so much. when she got your reply, she acted like my twin 4 year olds at Christmas! Awesome

    • I LOVE living in a time where such interactions are possible. Glad to hear your wife was excited. I’m just as excited when I get email from readers as she gets when getting a response from me πŸ˜‰

  9. I am so anxious for the release of these works, as I have read and will read everything you publish. Can’t wait for the next book.

  10. I am so anxious for your new books, I’m dying to know who the characters will be and their personalities. You have a writing style unlike any other writer I have ever seen, it is more like a story where you are right alongside the characters and you actually feel as if you know the characters. Thank you so much!

    p.s. I was just wondering if you were going to continue with some more of the Riyria Chronicles books. I’m kind of starting to miss Hadrian and Royce.

    Again thanks a thousand times over!

  11. I am oh so very thrilled to have this series come out! Can’t wait to go on adventures with your new characters and fall in love with a new piece of your work. Thank you immensely!!

  12. I can’t wait to read these. Wish I could go forward in time to when they’re all published so I can read them all at once without stopping. Thankyou for writing more.

    • So glad you enjoyed the reads. Have you read the other Riyria books? I’m talking about The Crown Tower and The Rose and the Thorn. I ask because I’m going to be releasing the sequel to Rose later this year. So not only do you have a whole new series coming soon from Del Rey, but you also have a new Royce and Hadrian tale as well.

  13. Eagerly awaiting this new series. Loved the Royce and Hadrian books. If the past books are any indication, they should be great.

  14. Hi Michael. Thanks again for emailing me abut a month ago regarding more Rhyria books. I was thrilled & honored. Can’t WAIT for Age of Myths release date for Audible, my eyes go whacky when I try to read, so it has to be an audible book. TGR is the best I’ve ever heard. Ever. I hope I can be picked to review anything, etc etc. yr my fav author, & happy belated BD! βŒβ­•οΈ Sorry-too long- again. πŸ˜¬πŸ™ƒ

      • Sorry for the noob question but what does TGR mean?

        I just read Age of Myth and it was so so good. I am now going to plough through the Riyria books.

      • Oh, sorry. TGR stands for Tim Gerard Reynolds, the narrator for the nine Riyria books and the first Age of Myth story. Glad you enjoyed Age of Myth and are excited about the Riyria tales. I hope you like them as well.

  15. Thanks Michael. I feel dumb that I spelled Riyria wrong on my last email. O also put a link to Age of Myth on my FB page telling all about you, the Riyria Revelations & Chronicles, telling of my love for that dynamic duo, & singing yr praises, just FYI. I’m hoping to stir interest, esp in the audible books for obvious reasons. TGR brings the story to life so much better. Thx again, Leigh

  16. I dearly love your Ryiera series, which I’ve listened to 2 or 3 times on Audible, and am now almost finished with Age of Myth, which I dearly love! I thank you, Mr. Sullivan, for your imaginative writings, which provide a needed escape from what, at times, can be a stressful, painful world. God’s love via His Word and His power are my first place of ease and strength, and your novels are lots of times the second place I’ll run to. Also, Mr. Gerard, the voice of Ryiera, does an equally awesome job on Age of Myth. Keep them coming, Mr. Sullivan! Looking forward to the release of the second novel in the Rhune series…soon!

    • Thanks Trish. Yes, Tim Gerard Reynolds is so great. I’m glad you find the books a respite. We all need to have a break from time to time and I’m thrilled that my books are an enjoyable place for you to visit.

  17. ok, 100% written obviously doesn’t mean they are going to be published at the same time*sigh* so when can we expect book 2?
    I have read (hmm listened to) the Chronicles and the Revelations twice. I absolutely love ALL of those books. I love TGR! Royce and Hadrian are wonderful characters and the books have just the right amount of fun, sadness, excitement and suspense!
    The Age of Myth series started really well and I can’t wait for the second audio book, but I would love more from the Chronicles as well.
    Thanks for writing such enjoyable stories..because at the end of the day that is what an Author is, a storyteller:)

    • Well, when I did that for Riyria – it did mean that…But those books were already published in the past through self, so there wasn’t much work to do once Orbit picked them up. So, with regard to THIS series, yes there is a lot to occur between written and fully edited. I just wrote a post on that.

      Currently book #2 is scheduled for Summer of 2017. Once I know more about its release date I’ll post here.

      As for more Chronicles…I HAVE decided to write a fourth in that series. Just have to figure out when I should start it.

      You are very welcome for the stories…I’m thankful that people like listening to them πŸ˜‰
