The Latest News for Watt-Evans Readers

Charming Sharra

Now available: Charming Sharra, the fifteenth novel set in Ethshar.

In January 2023 FoxAcre Press underwent a major contraction, dropping all titles where they pay royalties and giving the rights back to the authors. I had seven titles at FoxAcre. I put all of them back into print in new editions as quickly as I could, as Misenchanted Press books.

Those seven titles became eight, since I couldn't decide which previous title to use for one of them and therefore published it under both.

The eight include Nightside City, its sequel, Realms of Light, short story collections Crosstime Traffic and Celestial Debris, the novel Shining Steel, and two versions of Denner's Wreck a.k.a. Among the Powers. (Those two have identical contents; the only difference is the title.) The other short story collection, The Final Folly of Captain Dancy and Other Pseudohistorical Fantasies, has been expanded from four stories to ten and retitled The Final Folly of Captain Dancy and Other Tall Tales.

The audiobooks of the Annals of the Chosen (The Wizard Lord, The Ninth Talisman, and The Summer Palace) are now available on Audible, iTunes, and Amazon.

For the first time, Misenchanted Press has published non-fiction -- my sister's obsessively-researched, lavishly-illustrated history of social dance in Lowell, Massachusetts. She's put together a website about it, and of course you can order it from Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Twirling Jennies

I occasionally publish free e-mail notices called the Misenchanted Newsletter through Substack, updating the latest news on my publications. I've promised these will appear no more than once a week unless there are urgent corrections needed; they usually only appear every few months. To subscribe, go to my Substack and scroll to the bottom of the most recent post, where you'll find a place you can enter your email address.

Substack offers paid subscriptions, as well; those get you access to archives of back issues, blog posts, and other stuff.

In addition to the fairly concise reporting of writing news in the regular edition, I also theoretically offer an occasional "chatty version," with more personal commentary, that you can also subscribe to. The chatty version comes out much less often -- as in, I haven't sent one out in years.

If you decide you don't like either one, you can always unsubscribe; I have no interest in antagonizing readers by sending them things they don't want.

If you've signed up for the newsletter and haven't received it, please e-mail me and let me know! Issue #171 went out August 26th.
