April will see the re-release of The Legion of Shadow in Mass Market Paperback edition. In case you’re wondering what the hell that means, basically MMP is publishing speak for the cheaper version of the book, smaller and a little more portable (i.e. the size of your regular paperback). My editor contacted me earlier this week asking if I had any changes to make (bearing in mind, this would be the last time I could ever "fiddle" with the book). My immediate response was, ‘no, are you crazy?!’, after all I was relatively pleased with what I had achieved and didn’t want to start tinkering with what had gone before.
A question I’ve been asked a lot lately, particularly at my signing events for The Heart of Fire, is whether you can read the DestinyQuest books in any order or whether you should really start with Book One and play through sequentially. It’s a question that, I'm sure, should have a quick ‘yes/no’ answer but I always end up pulling my ‘constipated’ frown, chewing my lips and making ‘umming’ noises. It’s not an easy one to answer.

I'd normally do some waffling preamble, probably a humorous anecdote (*) or two followed by some more waffling preamble. But you know what, I think this time I'll let the images speak for themselves :)
