From Wells’ official website:

The good Raksura news: I will be doing four Raksura-related novellas for Night Shade Books, to be released as ebooks! The first three are due next year, but I’m not sure when they’ll be released. The first two will have Moon, Jade, Chime, Balm, etc, but I’m not sure about the second two yet.

Great news for fans of Wells’ Raksura novels, of which there are many. I love to see authors expanding their universes by tackling shorter stories, allowing readers to explore the nooks and crannies that may not be suitable to full novel-length stories. If you’re interested in learning more about Wells and her work, there’s a terrific interview with her on The Mad Hatter’s Book Shelf and Book Review (*phew* that’s a long name!). The Book Smugglers have also raved about her work, saying, “The Cloud Roads can be described as traditional Fantasy in a very fundamental level but it’s also a solid, un-clichéd traditional fantasy. In fact, this is quite possibly the best thing about the book, that it takes very traditional tropes and makes them fresh and imaginative, immersing readers in a world that is truly original and awe-inspiring.”

The novellas will be published by Night Shade Books in 2013.
