Where's THE CAPTAL'S TOWER and THE DIVINER?
A little birdie has informed me that neither THE DIVINER nor THE CAPTAL'S TOWER has been written yet, and that DAW intends to release them at the earliest possible date after DAW receives the final manuscript for either. If the wait for them is getting you down, you can relive the greatest Melanie Rawn moments at the message board. Or check out the cover art for THE DIVINER!
THE DIVINER ARTWORK IS HERE!
Finally, finally, finally! I'm incredibly excited to be able to offer you all with what you've all been waiting for: the cover artwork for THE DIVINER. Now, I may have reported that THE DIVINER is due in November of this year, but as of now, there's actually no release date set. But in the meantime, take a look at this beautiful art.
Melanie Rawn had a chat at TalkCity in April of '98 with Pandemonium members and other fans.
Take a look at what she had to say!
Melanie's collaboration with Jennifer Roberson
and Kate Elliott, The Golden Key has been selling well to lots
of critical acclaim!
Here are a few honors bestowed on The Golden Key:
- World Fantasy Award finalist for Best Novel of 1996

And just around the corner is Melanie's own prequel, The Diviner,
due out sometime in the future, which will be followed by The Warrior
(formerly titled The Glass Key) by Jennifer Roberson,
and concluded by Kate Elliot with The Seeker (formerly titled
The Iron Key) All titles are tentative, as of yet.
Melanie has recently signed a contract with a mainstream publisher
(AVON) and has two books slated for
the future, one of which is a historical fiction novel,
Keftiu, about an ancient Minoan civilization (dealing with
the natural demise of the island Thera).
Before she starts on this new contract, she is planning on
fulfilling her EXILES series with DAW Books.
