Terry Goodkind Switches Publishers from Tor to Putnam

Best-selling fantasy author Terry Goodkind is switching publishers from Tor to Putnam for a new three book deal. Goodkind has been with Tor for a long time but decided to make the switch because he and his agent, Russell Galen, felt Putnam could get them into wider markets. The three books will be mainstream fiction, not fantasy, and they will not be part of a series. Tor, who has published Goodkind’s novels for many years, is also the publisher of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series. It will be interesting to see how this new venture and new genre works out for Goodkind.

My life has been pretty simple. I grew up in Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor's in Advertising. I have spent about the last ten years in web development. In 1998, a friend of mine and I started a web design company we ran for three or four years before deciding to close it due to the demands of school. Since then, I stayed in the web working with various companies in Alabama. I worked for a brief period with Southern Progress, namely with Southern Living magazine and Health magazine, in their web departments. While there, I also wrote for Southern Living magazine, Health.com., and the company's internal newsletter. I write as much as I can. For the last five years, I have been working on my first novel. I am on the third revision now and hope to be finished with this draft by the end of the year. I also write short fiction, though not as frequently as I used to due to the time I spend on the novel. My goal is to have my novel published in the next three years. Other interests include: History (particularly medieval and ancient civlizations), Reading, Foreign Language (I currently speak Spanish but plan to learn as many as I can), Landscape Photography, the outdoors, sports (especially college football), and Travel.
