And ‘Blood Song’ in Russian is…

‘Песнь крови’. Apparently this has been out since February. Like the Turkish publisher they insisted on working from my author photo for the cover, over my objections naturally.

New ‘Tower Lord’ review and last ever screen grab (for now)

Thanks to Joshua S. Hill for his review of Tower Lord on Fantasy Book Review.

Taking stock after a hectic, but very exciting couple of days, I have become increasingly aware that I’m checking my Amazon sales ranking is far too often whilst filling up my pictures folder with screen grabs. As this is probably not conducive to a stable mental state, and I real work to do, I’ve decided to stop doing it. Therefore I, Anthony Ryan, hereby swear to the Dark Gods I shall no longer check my sales ranking on an hourly basis nor take any more screen grabs… apart from this one which shows Tower Lord at number one on the Amazon UK fantasy chart as of this morning (last one, I promise):

Thanks to Rob at Anderida Books for letting me know he is now taking pre-orders for signed first editions of the UK Tower Lord hardcover. You can email him at enquiries@anderidabooks.co.uk.

Also, due to popular demand (i.e. the two tweets I received) I’ve updated the Map Room with the maps from Tower Lord for anyone who has trouble reading them in the ebook.

And finally, if anyone missed it, this happened yesterday (which was pleasant).
