More Merling

Or, perhaps, Moreling? Perhaps not.

Either way, it seems I sufficiently impressed the powers that be at Random House Children's Books to land myself more work in this series of novelisations for the BBC's Merlin.

We writers have to earn our bread somehow, and if this keeps up I may even be able to stretch to a French loaf. Of course, I'm not at liberty to say anything more about future books at this stage, but in the meantime, the first book in the series, The Dragon's Call, due for release this September, is available for pre-order on Amazon. As is my other contribution so far, The Poisoned Chalice, due for release in November.

Obviously, the thing to do is to buy them and impress upon the publishing world that folks will buy books just because Simon Forward had a hand in writing them. :-)
