A while ago I reported that Dark Press have taken up their option to cancel the publishing contract for ‘Andraste’s Blade’.
The publisher’s web site has now disappeared, so I assume Dark Realm Press is no longer with us. As no electronic version of ‘Andraste’s Blade’ seems to be freely available I also assume the book is now out of print – although I do have a pdf and several hardcopies. Maybe one day they’ll be so rare they’ll be worth a fortune.
A long term plan is to tidy the novel, get it re-edited, and try a self-publishing experiment with it. It’ll be a lot of work and I’ve got more exciting projects in the pipeline, so it’ll be low priority and isn’t going to happen soon.
‘Andraste’s Blade’ was the first novel I wrote. I was pleased with the plot, but I think the writing suffered from my lack of experience. One of my readers, though, has told me the storyline makes it his favourite ‘Richardson’. I hope tightening and re-editing the book will make it a better read.
