Hello, Mr. Sam
I read your book Despertar do Império (Rise of Impire) for some years now but the truth is that the promised sequels are no longer published in my native language, portuguese, which I am very sorry because I loved the work. It is expected and when to publish it in Portugal and in portuguese, is what I ask you to please let me know.

Hi Sam, I've tried to E mail you without success, so I'm trying this method. Do you have any plans for more books about Eskkar in the pipe line?

First, I have to tell you that I absolutely enjoyed your Eskkar and Trella novels.
Secondly, do you have any plans to have them as audiobooks? I think that I would enjoy them as an audiobook.
Best Regards

Hi, my name is Leon Lonergan and am trying to buy an epub e-book of ESKKAR and TRELLA “The Beginning”. Not in Smashwords – (only one of the series is there). I live in Australia and cannot buy from Amazon (don’t have a kindle anyway) nor from Nook who will not accept orders (purchase requests) from Australia.

Any idea where or when I can buy an epub copy? Its none availability in Australia cannot be helping sales of the series.

I would appreciate your advice, if indeed you have the knowledge. I have a KOBO and it’s not available on that web site either.

Hi Mr. Barone,

I was just wondering if there are any plans to release another full length novel set in the Eskkar universe? I really enjoyed the series, and although I can fully understand ending the series with the defeat of Elam, I'm still thirsty for more books.

Read Dawn of Empire, Empire Rising and Quest for Honour a couple years ago. I haven't yet found a series a have enjoyed more than these books. One of my favourite book series still to this day. Though it is hard to find the rest of the books here in NZ without ordering from overseas. Great job, Will have to go back and re-read :)

Last Book read, Clash of Empires. All are excellent, should be HBO series. Don't use the computer, this is my wife's email. Barnes and Noble does not carry your books, I have to have them order them for me.

Just finished re-reading Empire Rising, once again I couldn't put it down - good job I'm on vacation!

Like Ryan's comments below, after a quarter of a century in uniform (Royal Navy, Retired) I find your account of the action engaging and convincing. And I really identify when your characters feel free going out on patrol away from the main city/command - a universal feeling I guess!
