Short Story Released!

I have to share this!

You all know how much I've enjoyed reading the Riyria Revelations by Michael J. Sullivan.  Yes, they keep coming up around here.  But I really have enjoyed the books.  And I'm patiently (trying to be) waiting for the last and final book of the series.  As many of you are waiting for the series to start with Orbit books (November, and each month after for 3 till out).

I have a special treat!
While we are all waiting Michael has a short story from when Royce & Hadrian first started as a team.  The Viscount and the Witch.

I think you can read this alone as it's before the Riyria Revelations and shouldn't spoil anything, from the sounds of it.  I'll be looking to pick this one up.

It's on Amazon for only $.99.  Yes, 99 cents!  Want it?  
Yes, they are ebooks and different formats but it's only a short story of 5,400 words. :)

Eleven years before they were framed for the murder of a king, before even assuming the title of Riyria, Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater were practically strangers. Unlikely associates, this cynical thief and idealist swordsman, were just learning how to work together as a team. In this standalone first installment of The Riyria Chronicles, Royce is determined to teach his naive partner a lesson about good deeds. Join Royce and Hadrian in this short story (5,400 words) about one of their earliest adventures.

  2. Ooh, thanks for the heads up. I'll definitely have to head over and download this story.

  3. Sweet! I hope it tides you over till the next book.
