Tor signs three book deal with Terry Goodkind

New York Times bestselling author returns with a new Richard & Kahlan novel

New York, NY – Monday, April 19, 2010 – Tor Books is proud to announce the return of New York Times bestselling author Terry Goodkind to their list. The first book in the 3-book deal will be a new Richard and Kahlan novel, due in early 2011. Richard and Kahlan are the principle characters from his previous New York Times bestselling books.

“We are excited to publish Terry Goodkind again,” says Tom Doherty, President and Publisher of Tor Books. “Millions of people delight in the novels of Richard and Kahlan and eagerly await the continuation of their story.”

Twenty five million copies of Goodkind’s 12-book series have been sold worldwide and have been translated into more than 20 languages. A television series adaptation of the novels, titled Legend of the Seeker, produced by ABC Studios and broadcast via syndication, first aired on November 1, 2008 and is now in its second season. The Sword of Truth is one of the most successful series ever published in the fantasy field.

Said Goodkind, “I’m thrilled to be back with Tor to tell more stories of Richard and Kahlan.

    That’s great news. Now if only we can get Books 2 through 12 available on the Kindle, that would be even better news.

    I thought that the Sword of Truth series was over? Is this a new series starring the same characters?

    What about the rest of the books in the series that started with The Law of Nines, which is kind of a Sword of Truth spin off? When are we going to see those?
