Tower Lord – Der Herr des Turmes – Released in Germany

The German edition of Tower Lord – Der Herr des Turmes – is now available. Many thanks to my German translators, Hannes and Sara Riffel and Birgit Pfaffinger, and everyone at Hobbit Presse for making this happen. The reaction to all the various translated editions of the Raven’s Shadow series has been one of the most gratifying aspects of this whole journey, and I greatly appreciated the feedback from German readers of Blood Song – Das Lied des Blutes. Reminder – the signed hardcover Goodreads giveaway for Das Lied des Blutes is still live.
