Thank you! Glad you enjoyed them, and thanks for recommending them!

Book 10 will be out later this month, if you're interested.

On the main page, only the first part of the thread title was displayed: "Urban Fantasy Box Set:..."

Which i somehow managed to misread as "Urban Fantasy Sex Bot"

Freud would have a field day with me

For those following at home, Book 10, THE OTHER SIDE, was released today!

Also, the audiobooks will start coming much faster now. Book 2 should be out within a week or so (depending on how fast Amazon releases it) and the next ones will be coming as fast as we can produce them (probably 6 weeks - 2 months apart).

Forgot I didn't update this thread for the new book. Book 11, PATH OF STONE, is out now. It's a flashback story, detailing Stone's early apprenticeship (and how he almost lost it). It's getting great reviews.

The audiobooks are up to book 5, now, and book 6 is almost finished recording.

I picked it up for a flight to London - helped set the tone of my trip.

Just a quick update: Book 12 of the series, NECESSARY SACRIFICES, is available now. This one has some pretty big changes and revelations for Stone - if you've been following the series, you'll probably enjoy it.

Curious why you reported it. I got the preview in my email, and it just looked like a (rather nice) review of one of my books. No links or other spammy stuff, at least not that showed up in the email.

A single word linked to the spam at the very bottom.
He had several threads he dropped spam into that carefully related to the thread topic while the spam didn't.

Book 16, THE SEVENTH STONE, is out! It's a big one, for those who like nice long stories.

I've just released another book in my Alastair Stone universe. It's a short novel (unlike the last doorstop!) and it's a standalone. So if you want to get a little taste of what Stone's like before diving into the series, this is a good one.

Devil's Bargain: A Novel in the Alastair Stone Chronicles


Note: Unlike my usual novels, this one is in first-person format from a different main character. The series itself is in third person and primarily from Stone's POV.

Wow, up to 17!

I think the thing that annoys me most about box sets of e-books is that if I've already paid for book #1 as a separate purchase I'm forced to buy it again to get the box set... but I'm not buying 4 (or more) books when I don't know if I'll like the series.

That said - I definitely enjoyed the Alastair Stone books I have read.

Glad you're enjoying the books, and totally understandable about the box set.

I find that the set is popular with the Kindle Unlimited subscribers - they get four books worth of reading for one "credit," and assuming the read them, I still get paid as if they bought all four books (since it's by page reads). Win-win! It's also a little bit of a discount--the first box set costs $9.99, whereas if you bought all four books it would cost you around $16.

Yeah, back in the old days if I bought a box set I could donate the oddball extra(s) to the library or pass them on to someone else, but you can't do that with e-books, the extra title just sits there in your library list, glaring at you...

As my eyes skimmed over the (truncated) title on the Forums page, I read it as Urban Fantasy Sex Bot
