Paths of Exile to be republished by Trifolium Books in July

Post by Carla » Thu June 23rd, 2011, 9:18 pm

I am delighted to announce that Paths of Exile is to be republished by Trifolium Books in July 2011.

It will have a new cover, revised and expanded maps and a new character list. It will also have a new print layout, probably 310 pages rather than the 228 pages in the Quaestor edition, so those of you who found the Quaestor layout cramped will hopefully find it much improved! The publisher, Connie Jensen, explains her approach to design here.

Trifolium Books is an independent publisher based in Cumbria, UK. Their first title was Kathleen Herbert's last novel Moon In Leo, which I reviewed here - see Reviews section of the forum - (before Trifolium decided to publish Paths of Exile, just in case you were wondering), and they are investigating the possibility of republishing her excellent Cumbrian Trilogy in due course. I've long admired Kathleen Herbert's Cumbrian novels, and am very pleased to have my novel(s) under the same roof.

Paths of Exile should be available some time in July, with e-book editions for Kindle, iPad and other formats to follow shortly. More details here and on the publisher's website as they become available.

Excellent news, Carla! A perfect example of how online networking can lead to a happy outcome for all. Love that dragon - did you embroider it yourself? (See Trifolium post here)

Not to nag or anything, but any word on Eadwine's further adventures? :)

Glad to hear it, Carla. I loved your book, and the editing was fine, but the layout was just plain awful. I'm glad it's on kindle, too. I can think of lots of people I can recommend it to, now that it will be in an easier-to-read format.

In publishing, cutting corners never works.

That's good news Carla. Let's hope it reaches a wide audience! :)

Thank you, everybody!

Misfit - good heavens, that was quick! Looking at the time on your post, you must have seen the blog post almost as soon as it went up.

Annis - yes, I embroidered the dragon. I designed it (him? her? them?) too, based on dragons from the Lindisfarne Gospels and the Sutton Hoo shield. There'll probably be something about the background to the design up on the Trifolium blog and/or mine fairly soon for anyone who's interested. Thanks for your interest in further adventures - and yes, watch this space :-) Trifolium are likely to be busy over the autumn and winter, especially if they are republishing Kathleen's Cumbrian novels, and I still have more to do to the text (having added a new direction to the story) so it's not likely to be this year, but hopefully next.

Boswellbaxter - Quaestor have decided to stop publishing fiction.

MLE - I hope you like the new layout. I thought Trifolium did a very nice job with the Moon In Leo deisgn, both the cover and the print layout.
