Retrieval Artist Update #10

The Peyti Crisis ebook cover webWe’re a little less than a month away from the release of the next Retrieval Artist novel. It feels like it has taken forever to get here, and yet it feels like only a moment ago I was working on the entire thing. The preorders are stacking up fast and furious. On Audible, you can now preorder audiobooks of A Murder of Clones and Search & Recovery. You can also preorder the ebooks of both on Kobo, iTunes, and Amazon. (See this page for links.)

Now you can also preorder an ebook of The Peyti Crisis, which marks Flint’s return to the series after the events of Blowback. You can get The Peyti Crisis on Amazon, Kobo, and iTunes right now. I suspect the audio version preorder will appear next month.

To understand what happens in The Peyti Crisis and the remaining three books, you’ll need to read A Murder of Clones and Search & Recovery. Right now, those three ebook sites and Audible are the only places to get the preorders. On their official release dates, the books will be available in trade paper, ebook, and audio on many different retailers. In fact, if you talk to your favorite brick-and-mortar bookstore while holiday shopping, you might be able to convince them to order paper copies in time for the release of A Murder of Clones on January 13, 2015.

Publisher’s Weekly has weighed in favorably on A Murder of Clones, saying, “Fans of Rusch’s Retrieval Artist universe will enjoy the expansion of the Anniversary Day story, with new characters providing more perspectives on its signature events, while newcomers will get a good introduction to the series.”

If you haven’t started the Anniversary Day books in the Retrieval Artist universe, now’s the time. The reissues of Anniversary Day and Blowback are both available with a letter from the author in each.

If you want Retrieval Artist updates without visiting this website, sign up for the Retrieval Artist newsletter.

And the next announcement, in January 2015, will be of A Murder of Clones’  publication! Woot!

Happy holidays!

    I thought I had first fell in love with you when I discovered this series, only then realizing that I had actually fallen for you having read so many of your short stories. For me, so much had happened between the last one I had read until I once again could fall into your writings that I had difficulty figuring out where I had left off so I came here and then to the referenced site you offered to identify the timeline, but instead found much frustration.

    The site you sent me to for all information about this series hasn’t been updated since 2014 and you still have pre-order offers in place for books coming out in 2015, although there are comments from 2018 the information is stale and forgotten.

    I realize with your health problems and scares as well as having to move suddenly to Nevada because of them (yes, I participated in the kickstart for the magazine) but that has occurred for the most part within the last year or so not 2015/16/17 when someone should have been assisting you with all of your online reference material.

    I’m used to disappointment, most often from those I’ve put too much faith in, but I never would have thought you would lose interest in one of your creations over another.

    I’ve loved all the Smokey Dalton, this Retrieval Artist and many others, especially your short story work, by any name you chose to use – but now that the cancer is eating me up and I look for comfort distractions or really any distractions that provide moments of escape and I simply can’t even when going to the source- here – it’s just disappointing and saddening.

    Maybe someday you or someone you ask will look into updating the website information to make it current and actually provide what was promised, it just won’t make any difference to me by the time you do as I won’t be around to care.

    I truly wish for you to have a good long life and that you be privileged to know how your writing efforts can help others in ways you may not have considered.

    • I’m sorry to hear about your illness. I do understand your frustration at not being able to find out information. My sites are not in the best order, although they should be up to date on the current material. I’ve contacted WMG to make sure that everything is up to date. My site is not well run (this one, kriswrites), and isn’t always the best source for what’s current.

      On the Retrieval Artist, that should be https://www.retrievalartist.com/. Nothing has come out on the series since the entire Anniversary Day saga released in 2015, although I do plan more books. As you noted my health got in the way of the one book per year on that saga, as I’ve been devoting my time to the Diving series because I’m trying to finish up a saga there as well.

      Do let me know what you need to know about the Retrieval Artist, and I’ll help any way I can. I’ll be sending this to the email you attached to the comment as well, just in case I can reach you that way.
