New release - RotE 10

Hello,

Just wanted to let you all know that Rise of the Empire book 10 - Nomad Fleet is now out and available on Amazon.

And I've also made all RotE books available in paperback, you might need to search for them (it takes a bit for Amazon to link the store pages).

With this book the Rise of the Empire series is entering its last arc, with the finale being book 12. It's been a lot of fun writing this series, I've had this ending in my head almost since book 2, and it feels good to finally get close to the end. Hopefully you will like it.

A few of you had asked me if there will be a sequel series, and I don't really want to reveal a lot now and spoil the ending. Suffice to say that the Rise of the Empire ending will finish the story started in book 1. Rise of the Empire will have an end.

The schedule for the next few months is currently like this:

Eternal Path book 2 - End of October

Rise of the Empire book 11 - End of December

Universe on Fire book 2 - Early 2019

Rise of the Empire book 12 - sometime around April

Cheers,

Ivan

New Release

Hi all,

I'm happy to let you know that Broken Stars - Universe on Fire book 1 is now out and available on Amazon. It is a new series set in a new universe, and it is a sci-fi with some fantasy elements, I wouldn't really call it space fantasy but it is close. It does have a somewhat more sci-fi tone. If you enjoy my Rise of the Empire series then you will like this one as well.

Also, I have some updates concerning my schedule. I've been forced to shuffle the release dates around a bit, so the schedule for now looks something like this:

  • Rise of the Empire book 10 - End of July
  • Eternal Path book 2 - Mid October
  • Rise of the Empire book 11 - December
  • Universe on Fire book 2 - March 2019
  • Rise of the Empire book 12 - June 2019

Hopefully there won't be much shuffling this time around.

Cheers.

New Release and other stuff.

Hand of the Empire is now out and available on Amazon. Hopefully you'll like it.

Writing this one had been a much different experience, since I was experimenting with my writing schedule. I attempted to write three books at the same time. It didn't go as well as I had hoped. After RotE book 7 I started working on the Eternal Soul (the first in a new fantasy series) with Hand of the Empire and book 9 of RotE on the side. By the end of March I had finished the draft for the Eternal Soul and about 30% of Hand of the Empire and maybe 15% of book 9. But as I was doing early revisions of Eternal Soul I realized that I didn't really like it, so I ended up scraping more than 80% of it. By then I was already behind my schedule so I decided to switch to Hand of the Empire as my main focus and finish it first, which I did by the end of May. Then when I was ready to send it to my editor I learned that he had sadly passed away just a few days before I sent him a message, and I started looking for a new editor. Finding someone who I was comfortable with on such short notice was very hard, but eventually I managed and here it is, sorry that it took longer than I said.

Here is my schedule for the next few releases (hopefully I'll manage to keep to it) :

  1. Eternal Soul - October 2017
  2. Rise of the Empire 9 - December 2017
  3. Untitled urban fantasy book - February 2018
  4. Rise of the Empire 10 - May 2018

I might switched 3 and 4 depending on how I feel after Eternal Soul. I've been writing Rise of the Empire for three years straight now, so I want a bit of a change before finishing it, but in any case the end of the series is close, I might even get it done in 2018. Here is a small sneak peek at the first two chapters of Eternal Soul.

I really need to thank you all for reading my books, without you I wouldn't be able to do what I love.
