In addition to the previously mentioned price drops for Kindle and the standard paperbacks, there's a new offer running throughout September. While stocks last, signed paperbacks bought from this site will be discounted by a whopping 33%!
The coupon code for that offer is 09KABOOM18. You can shop for signed copies here.
The discount does not apply to the new Omnibus paperback, nor to the Whom Gods Shall Fear pre-order. It's available on the four individual paperbacks that are currently available.
In related news, it is now time to retire the mutating coupon code. This was the code found on the back of the business cards distributed through Armada Wars convention appearances.
New to the store! Signed copies of the Armada Wars: Books 1–3 Omnibus paperback, posters for Whom Gods Shall Fear, and the posters 1–5 value pack.
The poster value pack saves 25% over separate purchases! The signed copy of the Omnibus is being introduced with an early bird discount, and those of you with the special coupons from Armada Wars convention appearances can get an additional £5 off.
Over the past couple of weeks, the paperback editions have been quietly migrated from Createspace to Kindle Direct Publishing. This means faster and simpler delivery (now fulfilled by normal Amazon means), and full Prime availability. The opportunity was also taken to make some tiny tweaks to the content and covers.
Additionally, the paperback edition of the Armada Wars Books 1–3 Omnibus is now live on Amazon! This 3 lb monster of a book contains Steal from the Devil, List of the Dead, and The Ravening Deep, and comes with a cost saving of about 20% over the individual copies. The second omnibus will be printed to the same dimensions, for those of you who like your books to line up properly.
You asked, so here it comes! The paperback edition of the Books 1–3 Omnibus will be arriving on or before 1st March 2018, and it's a whopper!
The book is a large format 7x10" paperback, reducing the combined 1180 page count of the first three novels by almost half and coming in at 646 pages.
Like the Kindle version the omnibus paperback will come with a cost saving. The pricing is currently expected to be $30.99 in the USA, £22.99 in the UK, and €25.99 in Europe. This price point makes the print omnibus about 20% cheaper than buying individual paperback novels.
If you've already started collecting the novels in 5x8" paperback format, don't worry: they will of course continue. The second Omnibus, incorporating From Shattered Stars and Whom Gods Shall Fear, will also be released in 7x10" format. So whichever way you collect, your bookshelf will line up nicely!
Since it's now the final approach to the apocalyptic climax of The Great War of the Shaeld, Kindle prices for the current series have dropped a bit. It's a good time to get friends in on the action!

Now that the audiobook edition of Steal from the Devil has launched across all applicable retailers, there are some more details available on price and functionality!
The audiobook can be acquired through these routes:
Retailers set their own prices for the audiobooks, which they base on listening length and market factors.
The audiobook has been produced in line with the requirements for Whispersync for Voice and Immersion Reading, two features of the Kindle/Audible platforms. The former allows you to stop reading and start listening where you left off, or vice versa. The latter allows you to listen while the relevant text is actively highlighted, which is handy for language learners and non-native speakers.
