Product description


Michael J. Sullivan satisfies my desire for intimate, character-driven stories, and regularly manages to keep me reading well into the wee-hours of the morning. --Fantasy Book Review

Riyria has everything you could possibly wish for: the characters are some of the best I've ever encountered in fantasy literature, the writing is top notch, and the plotting is so tight you'd be hard-pressed to find a mouse hole in it. It also has one of the most satisfying endings of any series Ive read. --Barnes & Nobles Fantasy Blog

About the Author

After finding a manual typewriter in the basement of a friend's house, Michael J. Sullivan inserted a blank piece of paper and typed: It was a dark and stormy night. He was just ten years old and mimicking the only writer he knew at the time...Charles Schultzs Snoopy. That spark ignited a flame and Michael's desire to fill blank pages would become a life-long obsession. As an adult, Michael spent more than ten years developing his craft by studying authors such as Stephen King, Ernest Hemingway, and John Steinbeck. During that time, he wrote thirteen novels without finding any traction in publishing. Since insanity is repeating the same act but expecting a different result, he did the only sane thing he could think of and quit, vowing never to write creatively again.

Never turned out to be too long for Michael and after a decade he returned to the keyboard in his forties...but with one condition: he wouldn't seek publication. Instead, he wrote a series of books that had been building in his head during his hiatus. His first reading love was fantasy, and his hope was to help foster a love of reading in his then thirteen-year-old daughter, who struggled due to severe dyslexia. After reading the third book of this series, his wife insisted the novels needed to ""get out there."" When Michael refused to jump back onto the query-go-round, she took over the publication tasks and has run ""the business side"" of his writing ever since.

Michael is one of the few authors who has successfully published through all three routes: small press, self, and big five. Some key accomplishments of his career include:

  • Named to io9's Most Successful Self-Published Sci-Fi and Fantasy authors
  • Sold more than 1,500,000 English copies
  • Over 75 foreign language translations
  • Spent more than 4 years on Amazon's Bestselling Fantasy Author's list
  • Twice on the Washington Post's Hardcover Bestseller List
  • A six-time Goodread Choice Award's Nominee
  • His latest Kickstarter is the second most-backed (and 4th highest-funded) fiction project of all time
  • At the time of funding, The Dulgath Kickstarter was the third highest-funded fiction project of all time
  • His books have been named to more than 200 best-of or most-anticipated lists including those compiled by Library Journal, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Goodreads.com, and Audible.com

Today, Michael continues to fill blank pages with 14 released novels, 3 awaiting publication, and a new trilogy in the works. His past and future releases include:

  • 2008 - 2010: Small-press and self-publication of first 5 Riyria Revelation novels
  • 2011 - 2012: Orbit (fantasy imprint of Hachette Book Group) re-release of The Riyria Revelations
  • 2013: Riyria Chronicles launches from Orbit with publication of two novels
  • 2014: Hollow World, a sci-fi novel released by Tachyon Publications (print) and self (ebook)
  • 2015: The Death of Dulgath (released through self-publication with bookstore distribution)
  • 2016: Age of Myth, debut novel in The Legends of the First Empire series from Del Rey
  • 2017: Age of Swords (Del Rey) & Disappearance of Winter's Daughter (Self)
  • 2018: Age of War (Del Rey)
