Bestselling fantasy author Terry Goodkind is self-publishing his next novel, The First Confessor. The author has been releasing tidbits about the book via social media--he has shared links to two book trailers through Twitter and his Facebook page--and, on Tuesday, unveiled the title of the work. The book will be available on July 2.

Goodkind's agent, Russell Galen, of Scovil Galen Ghosh, declined to offer any more details about the book, but confirmed that this will be the first title the author has self-published. Goodkind is arguably best known for his Sword of Truth series.
