Quite some time back, the good folks at Paizo Publishing sent me access codes for 5 free copies of the WINTER WITCH audiobook. These codes have been sitting around, collecting dust, so I’m giving away 2 of them on the Forgotten Realms Archive group on Facebook. It’s a simple contest: Add one comment to the post. Winners will be chosen by a random number generator at noon (EST) on May 1.
Here’s a link to audio version of Winter Witch, a Pathfinder Tales novel written with Dave Gross.
There’s an online sample, in case you’d like to hear the narrator’s voice and reading style.
To learn more about this book, please click here to go to the website information page. In addition to a short description of the story, you’ll find links to sample chapters, reviews, and online booksellers.
Another of my Forgotten Realms books has been released as an audio book. Here’s a link to its page on Audible.com.
The Magehound is the first book in the Counselors & Kings trilogy, set in the magic-rich southern land of Halruaa. This trilogy gives Forgotten Realms fans a rare and, sadly, last look at this fascinating realm, for most of Halruaa was destroyed by the Spellplague. And by “destroyed” I mean gone. Instead of land, there’s sea and swamp.
But! With the D&D Fifth Edition coming up, the Forgotten Realms will be returning to a more recognizable form. I will be very interested to see what this means for Halruaa.
Clicking on any of the book links will take you to the info page for that book, where you’ll find a brief synopsis, as well as links to excerpts, reviews, and online booksellers.
I’ve added links to the Audible pages on Amazon.com on each book’s info page. To go to an info page, click on the hyperlinked title, or chose a title from the book list to the right.

One of my stories is included in all but three of these: Realms of the Elves, Realms of the Dead and Best of the Realms Book 2: The Stories of Ed Greenwood.
Today’s the release date for three of my Forgotten Realms novels. In addition to Evermeet, there’s Tangled Webs and Windwalker, books 2 and 3 of the Starlight & Shadows trilogy. (Not sure what happened to book 1, Daughter of the Drow, but I’m looking into it…) My short story collection, The Best of the Realms Book III, is out today, as are two anthologies to which I contributed stories. (Realms of Infamy, Realms of the Arcane.) These are available through Amazon.com or Audible.com. I’m adding links to both booksellers on each novel’s info page, so if you’re interested in a particular book, click on the title to go to the info page. I’ll also be adding a Audio Books page to the website soon, to make things easier for people who have a particular interest in this format.
It’s exciting to see these backlist books return in new formats. If you listen to one or more of them, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
