All future novels will be published in the smaller format where possible. All books by Moore are printed and distributed by Lightning Source and are available through Ingram. "I am pleased with the quality and better economy of scale the smaller books provide me, along with the wonderful finish a matte cover presents," the author said. "The matte covers are better and longer lasting than the glossy covers. And I have had a chance to improve on the cover designs in the process. It will bring some of my back list back to life for those who enjoy speculative fiction."

A future book still in the works is Swords of The Dragon's Blood, which will be published during the summer, and will be the same size as its prequel Written In Blood.
