As we hurtle towards the Tenth Armadaversary, it's slightly daunting but also extremely satisfying to acknowledge that in a few months' time, this is what the line-up will look like...
USA: Barnes and Noble!
Readers who cannot or will not shop at Amazon may be pleased to hear that Armada Wars has now occupied territory on the world known as "Barnes and Noble".
The Books 1–3 Omnibus is already listed on the site, as are A Storm to the Savage and I Dream of Damastion. These are all the latest versions of the texts (polished up in the approach to the Whom Gods Shall Fear release date), with the new covers.
The Books 4+5 Omnibus will also be listed on B&N when it becomes available in 2024. So while the individual paperbacks for the main sequence novels are not yet listed on B&N, fans of the series will still be able to purchase the whole of the first series as matching omnibus editions (which will also save money).
All of those paperbacks will be eligible for the B&N free shipping offer (shopping cart containing $40 of eligible items). Premium Member bonuses also apply!
Watch this space for the individual editions appearing...
UK: Waterstones and Blackwells!
UK shoppers have not been left out — the same titles are currently invading the Waterstones and Blackwells web sites.
The Books 1–3 Omnibus has landed already, and the expansion episodes should appear soon.
As with B&N, the books are eligible for the Waterstones shipping offer. On their site you need £25 worth of qualifying items in your cart to benefit from free shipping.
On Blackwells, all titles include UK delivery.
The books are also populating to other stores in the UK, such as Foyles, so if you have a favourite book retailer you may well find soon that you can purchase Armadaverse titles from them.
Don't forget that discounted 'previous version' paperback editions of the main sequence novels are also available in the official store.

Anyone who joins the Armada Wars mailing list before the start of September will be entered automatically into a prize draw for one of three signed copies of series finale Whom Gods Shall Fear.
The winner will be picked at the time of the book launching, so anyone joining until the end of August 2023 will be entered into the draw. Anyone who joined the mailing list previously has been entered retrospectively.
The winner will be picked at random from people on the mailing list/s at the time of the draw, with a joining date prior to 31st August 2023, so you need to be still on the list at the time of the draw to be in with a chance!
Winners will be contacted, using the email address registered on the list, to arrange delivery.
Quick note on a change to the newsletter:
Until March 2023 there were two separate mailing lists, one for the general newsletter and one for people who only wanted to be notified of new releases.
These have now been merged into one list, with the two groups within it tagged by their content preference. If you were subscribed already your content preference will be respected and you do not need to take any action. It just makes organisation much easier at this end!
The one difference subscribers will see is that if you click the "update list subscription preferences" link at the end of any newsletter sent during or after April 2023, you will now have the option of switching between the 'General Newsletter' and 'New Releases Only' options at any time.
Caution! There is also an 'unsubscribe' link, which is not the same thing. That link will unsubscribe you immediately when you click it. Be sure to use the link labelled "update list subscription preferences"!
