I would to keep following along with his and the gangs continuing adventures. Please tell us anything about the future of this wonderful series. Thanks for your time! That is really up to Wizards of the Coast, not me. Well, Troy Denning is supposed to have another novel coming out one of these days, but WotC is indeed limiting its authors just at the moment. I cannot wait for the continuation. Pingback: Extra-Life: Get in the Game!
I read your article in dungeon Elves with Demonic Designs and liked it. In her true form the only signs of her demonic heritage is that she has fiery red eyes and a long pointed tail. Which are easy to hide. I depowered their 3. The abilities like dimensional door and damage reduction. I like to know what think of my 5e stats for them. Do you see them making a come back in the realms even if its a small one.
Glad you enjoyed the article. The demon is strong in her, as reflected in those powerful abilities, and I hope you play up how powerful her demonic urges probably are, even as she tries to be a renegade and not give in. Good luck!

Did I miss out anything from your Shadowbane series? Or will you in future if fate and WotC decree it plan to expand on what actually transpired between the two Shadowbanes?

They will stay there if people just keep pouring money into it. Now, I understand why it makes sense for you since the prices are indeed lower. But for those of us in the US it amounts to gouging. So yes, I am indeed very pissed and am willing to abandon the Realms over this issue if they indeed move to an eBook only format.
BTW, this link is a good read on the pricing issue for eBooks. The industry is being forced into a new format. When I started writing FR books, the biggest distributor was Waldenboooks. This chain's stores were located in shopping malls, making them ideal for the demographic. Waldenbooks was absorbed by Borders Books. Now, with hundreds of Borders including many former Walderbooks stores closing, distribution of midlist genre books will be taking a serious hit.
See a Problem?
When you consider what's going on in the publishing industy, direct-to-ebook releases make sense. Ebook pricing is still evolving.
Readers are accustomed to thinking that anything in digital format should be free. It's going to take a while to find a common ground that makes sense for everyone. Yes, the publisher saves printing and shipping costs, but there are still expenses involved in ebook production. And the ebook stores such as Amazon. Independent writers get a better deal on royalties, but again, ebook sellers and publishers are still working out equitable price structures.
It is not necessary to purchase an e-reader. Kindle has apps that allow you to download to your computer. Not everyone likes reading on a monitor, but it is an option.
Also, many libraries will loan reading devices, which gives another option to those who cannot afford an ereader. Technology is forcing change. Big box stores offer a distribution channel for bestsellers, but midlist books will adapt or die. WotC is adapting. I wish them, and Erik, all the best on this venture.

An e-book only??? I really wanted to buy this book, but now I will have to skip it. Erik, do you know why WotC decided to publish it only in this format? Dennis Great Reader Posts. He can have both. I perfectly understand Sage's case. Personally though, I only buy e-books when I'm dying to read the novels immediately.
I'm in Asia, so US-released books take about months before they reach us, with very few exceptions. When the hardbound my preferred format arrive, I buy them too, and reread every single page. Patience is my weakest virtue, that's why. Every beginning has an end. I suppose there are many others who would like to buy a paperback, but they were deprived of the possibility to do it. WotC losses some money that way. I want to find reason backing the publisher's decision, but I can't find any. Reading on a laptop is not for me or Kindle device.
I really relax when I have a paperback in my hands.
I suppose that depends upon whether you place value upon the book as an object or the story as an experience. It would also depend upon your criteria for "price gouging. That simply doesn't work. Here's why.
The person who wrote that post purchases books at a used bookstore at half price. A lot of people get a cut of a book's cover price, but the largest percentage goes to the retailer. But that bookseller's decision does not lower the cost of producing the book.

Nor does the buyer's decision to sell the book after reading it. It takes just as long to write a novel that will be printed electronically as one that's published as a paperbook.

Ebooks need "covers" just as paper books do. Editing, copyediting, proofreading, and formatting require as much work. My experience with my first independently published ebook suggests that formatting is even MORE work intensive, since you need to adjust for the various e-formats. In short, many of the expenses associated with producing a paperback are still in place for ebooks.
For a hardback book, the breakout of costs, according to the January 12, , issue of U. People often ask, who makes the bigger profit--the author or the publisher? With retailers taking the lion's portion, with rising costs, flat or fallen profit margins, and with other media ventures making significantly larger profits, publishers, just like other businesses, are looking for ways to cut costs and bump up profit margins.
