Three more Robin Hood novels?

I was having a long, boozy lunch with my Last Berserker publishers a couple of weeks ago – yeah, I know, it’s a tough gig this authoring game – and the subject of my bestselling Robin Hood books came up and someone suggested that I might like to write some more. (OK, it was me who suggested it). We kicked around the idea for a while, and there was some concern voiced (OK, also from me) that that series might be played out . . .

As you probably know, I have written and self-published two more Robin Hood novels after The Death of Robin Hood (below) and they have done pretty well. Between them Robin Hood and the Caliph’s Gold and Robin Hood and the Castle of Bones have sold a lot of copies – not as many as the original books but a decent return for my labours. But the question is do you, the readers, want me to write some more of them?

The Death of Robin Hood - Angus Donald

They would not be self-published – I would get my new publisher to do it (probably). And this would mean that the cover would be a better quality and there would be fewer typos in the text. Properly edited, too. Actually, it would be a better product all round. I thought I might write a trilogy of books from Robin’s perspective, rather than from Alan Dale’s. Which would give them a certain freshness. But they would still fit in the Outlaw Chronicles “universe” taking place between Grail Knight and The Iron Castle, where there is a gap of some years. The question is – should I do this?

I’m very happy with the Fire Born series. The Last Berserker is going great guns and has been No1 several times in various Amazon categories. People seem to like it. And The Saxon Wolf (Fire Born 2) – below – is coming out in January 2022. I have high hopes of that. I’m writing Fire Born 3 at the moment (working title: The Loki Sword) and that should be published in August 2022. But I’ll have finished that early in the new year – so what to write next?

I have another project – a secret one, sorry, I must remain schtum about this for the time being – and I’m probably going to write some more Fire Born novels too. But should I return to Robin Hood? Or have we all had quite enough of that cruel bastard after ten novels? Please let me know, in the comments section. I would really like to hear what you think. OK, that all for now. Angus out!

Absolutely yes. And the idea of a Robin’s POV is amazing!! Right now I’m truly excited for the (hopefully real) news!!

Robin is always welcomed on my book shelf! I do enjoy the yarns you spin of the famous outlaw. I would like to see a book post Robin’s death of the travels of his most famous sidekick before he became a man of the cloth. Also books from Robin’s point of view would be a nice change of pace also. Short answer is more Alan or Robin or both!

I’d love to see more Robin Hood novels and I like your idea of writing from Robin’s perspective to get a fresh perspective and allow the reader to get inside the mind of the great man himself.

Hi Angus,

I’ve been reading the Robin Hood series since they started and I’m not tired of them yet. As long as you can continue writing them I’d love to see one come out every year.

I hope the sales keep coming in for the Fire Born series too.

Cheers,
Sean

Yes, please do it ! Love the idea of a trilogy from Robin’s perspective ! Be good if your new publisher gave the last two a cover makeover and relaunch ahead of the new trilogy ?

Or.. would love to see some crusades stories from your good self 🙂

I’ve read all of your books with the exception of the latest two Outlaw Chronicle novels, which I will be purchasing. Seeing that there were two further books in the series was pleasing and given the opportunity I would happily read more. 3 books written from Robins perspective would be a welcome change too

By all means, please continue to publish the Robin Hood books. I have loved them all, and have read “The Caliph’s Gold,” and am presently reading “Robin Hood And The Castle Of Bones.” These are some of the best historical fiction books I’ve read, and I was as excited to see their continuance as I was saddened by their supposed end. Pleas, keep them coming.
