New Book Deal

As book five of the Hereward saga (The Immortals – more on that soon) winds its way towards publication in July, I thought I should warn the world that I have just signed a new three-book deal with my publishers, Penguin Random House.  Here’s the announcement, as featured in The Bookseller:

Transworld has acquired a new trilogy about the Pendragon bloodline by James Wilde.

Editor Simon Taylor acquired UK and Commonwealth rights to the Dark Age trilogy from Euan Thorneycroft at A M Heath.

Taylor said: “The story of Arthur is timeless and has been told and retold many, many times before but James is going back even further to recount an untold story – that of the dynasty that culminated in this nation’s most enduring legend.

“You could call it the prequel to the Arthurian legend if you like – and James, with his unerring ability to bring period, place, people and, let’s cut to the chase here, sword-shattering battles to life, is just the storyteller to do it.

“The Dark Age trilogy is going to be exciting, action-packed historical fiction at its epic best and I for one can’t wait.”

Pendragon, the first novel in the Dark Age trilogy, is likely to be published in 2016 in hardback, e-book and then paperback editions, said Transworld.

  1. Totally loved your first three books, but not been able to get No 4 yet… This I’m about to purchase.

    Your stories are so beautifully written I’m very pleased you’ve managed a contract for more books & eagerly await them.

    Yours Tracey Jackson
