Blood Song – UK Audiobook News

Orbit have now confirmed that the Blood Song audiobook will be available in the UK on 12th June. This will be the same version as the US edition as read by the excellent Steven Brand. I can also confirm that the Tower Lord audiobook will also be released in the UK at the same time as the ebook and hardback. I’m currently awaiting confirmation on the position regarding distribution in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and South Africa and will post an update when I know one way or the other. Many thanks to my UK editor, James Long, and everyone at Orbit for their hard work in making this happen.

… ‘Das Lied Des Blutes’. I know this because – well you know the drill by now. German cover below, can’t help but think there’s a theme emerging here…

Blood Song in Hungarian is….

…’A Ver Enneke’. I know this thanks to the good folks at Fumax Kiado who are currently printing the Hungarian version with an excellent all new cover by artist Kira Santa. Very happy to see they chose one of my favourite scenes to illustrate. Also, many thanks to my Hungarian translator Kalman Matolcsy for all his hard work on this project.
