The New Improved "Author-ized" edition of Sword in the Stars is HERE!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am STOKED to announce, the new "Author-ized Edition" of Sword in the Stars is now available in paperback!

I have to admit, I was a little shocked to see how thick it is. I mean, I knew I added a few thousand words, but WOW! Get ready for a serious journey!

I want you all to know that CreateSpace forced the price to this height. The minimum was $22.36. In order for me to make a decent profit, I made it $24.99. 

SPECIAL OFFER: From now until the end of Labor Day, all the profits from Sword in the Stars will go to help Houston. If you're going to get one (or three), please purchase in this window. I'd love to send a nice donation to help those who've been blasted by Harvey.

Thank you, readers, for being so patient! There's more to come!

Thank you sooooo much! You have made my year, and the year(s) to come!
This is so awesome:)
Is it really 688 pages long? That is over 200 pages longer than the first version!
Thank you, it will be so worth the wait:)
—Mikayla, your ever faithful reader.

Wayne, some very interesting publishing news. I'm a long-time reader. I am now a bookstore owner. We've been open one month and your books are flying off the shelves (I've sold nine volumes)!

I am excited about your upcoming works. I hope you'll keep me posted to new releases. As an indie author I know we don't always get things out when we mean to and you seem to have a "wishful" time table.

IMPORTANT! I order through Ingram and as needed. I am having NO luck getting "The Tide of Unmaking" but have the others in the series stocked. Any leads? I also believe that The Door Within series will be harder to acquire at wholesale prices as Ingram has it as out of print.

Thanks for the third pirate novel, too! Gunna read that as soon as it's in.

Hi, Greg! DUDE, thank you! Books don't fly off the shelves unless they have help. I really appreciate it. Tide of Unmaking can be purchased:

Wayne, I'm looking for retailer's pricing. You may contact me at

Hi! How are things coming with The Myridian Constellation series? Do you have the "Author-ized" version of Errant King out for purchase yet? All I've found on Amazon is the Sword in the Stars! Can't wait for the rest of your books! Please tell me it will be soon! :)

Hi, Greg, I'm not sure about retail pricing. I can purchase from CS for my author's cost. Is that what you mean?

Hi, Anna, I'm hoping to release the new Errant King -AND- Book 3: The Forsaken Continent by Christmas!

Sweet, the Kindle version is out:)

Hi, I’m an avid fan of your writings and I’m writing my own Sci-Fi series now, and I must say, (though this is unrelated) my favorite series of yours was the Isle series, absolutely adored the first and loved the second, I’ve seen a third one am I’m unsure if it’s actually legit. I wanted to request, and I know it’s ridiculous, that you write another book on it, or something related to it. Thanks!

I was hoping you could help me with a question that I have for one of my friends. I believe you were to come out with a 3rd book entitled, "The Mirror of Souls" in one of your children's book series. My friend thought it was supposed to come out a couple years ago, but we have both been unsuccessful in finding it or finding any information about it. Would you be able to help us with this? Thank you very much!

WayneThomasBatson said...

Hi, Unknown! Yes, "Isle of Stars" is legit. It's book 3 in the Isle Chronicles Series. Though, it is more of a novella in length. I have two more books outlined in the series, but I'm not sure when I'll be able to write them.

Hi, Anon! Yes, there is a 3rd book—and a 4th one. I am republishing Sword in the Stars (book 1) and The Errant King (book 2) first. Book 3 is The Forsaken Continent and should be out Christmas/New Years time period. Book 4 is Mirror of Souls. That one should be out in the spring.

I know this question is out of the blue, but I have a friend who I introduced the Door Within Trilogy to, and he had a question concerning a small detail in the first book:
He was reading how the Glimpses eyes flicker the color of their allegiance and there's a part where Aiden asks Gwenne if a humans eyes can change color, to which Gwenne answers: "It means Sir Aiden..., you are not a Glimpse. Your eyes do not change unless-"
And then she's interrupted.
My friend wanted to know if this is ever addressed. I've read the series before, but can't remember if they give an answer, so I figured I might as well go to the source:
What happens to make a humans eyes change color?

Ok, finally reading Sword in the Stars during Christmas vacation as requested by my son for the past couple years. Thought I'd come to this site to look into this,series and ....find out its been republished 200 pages longer...frustration....knowing your desire to honor the Lord, I do not find fault or criticize, but first time I've read for pleasure in a couple years....hoping it goes to CD for the car, otherwise I know not when I'll read it again....
However did Barenfeld Chronicles on CD in thd car and loved it!!! Great books, glad my son loves them.

Dude, about the Foraken Coninent book...If I don't see Alistar Coldhollow anywhere in it, I will drop the series and blood will be shed! (expression, but I will be mad.)
