I just wanted to announce that my entire back catalogue is now available on Kindle Unlimited. You can find my books at the following links:
I’ve had a chance to do a little organising over on Pinterest, and have put some photos of buildings and cities into their appropriate categories, if anyone is curious as to what place inspired which city!
If you reckon you can connect any of the buildings to the ones they inspired in the book, feel free to drop me a mail and I’ll confirm if you’re right!

Ever since I started imagining Ostenheim, I’ve been scribbling maps on scraps of paper, adding, deleting and altering as the stories developed and the city grew in my mind. I’ve wanted to get a proper map of the city made up for a long time, and now I have. Here it is:
(Click to enlarge)
The map was drawn up by the very talented Robert Altbauer. You can see more of his work at his website. I can’t express how delighted I am with his work – it’s a great experience to finally see the image that’s been in my head for such a long time. We chose a style similar to the Renaissance era city maps from books like Civitates Orbis Terrarum; something that looks like it was created at the time it is set in, rather than a modern map of an old city.
The map will be a great accompaniment to the series of posts about the city that is upcoming, and will make my job of explaining where all the important buildings are a lot easier!
There’s another review up for The Huntsman’s Amulet over on the Reading Realms site, which you can get to by clicking on the banner.
Here’s a snippet of what they had to say:
Hamilton does a great job squeezing information about the world, the cultures, and the characters into a story that rarely slows down to take in the scenery.

Hope everyone is having a good run up to Christmas!
Reviews for The Huntsman’s Amulet are starting to come through the works. I’ve been meaning to mention these for a little while now, but things have been pretty hectic on my end so…
The first of the reviews is from the Terraverum blog, by Nicua Shamira. In my usual self congratulatory fashion, I’ve pulled out a snippet that caught my eye:
Duncan is a brilliant writer who really knows how to capture the reader’s attention and hold it.

This story follows what happens to Soren after fleeing from Ostenheim, introduces a bit more of the Middle Sea world, and a few new and interesting characters. I really hope you enjoy it!
iBooks – coming soon
For the speed-readers among you, the final part of the Society of the Sword trilogy is still on track for a Spring 2014 release!
I’ve just added an excerpt for The Huntsman’s Amulet, which you can read here.
In other news, the final part of the trilogy has just gone off for beta reading!
The Huntsman’s Amulet is the follow up to The Tattered Banner and is the second part of the Society of the Sword trilogy. It will be released in November, exact date yet to be confirmed. To be among the first to find out when, you can sign up for my new release notification here.
The cover was designed by Damon, at damonza.com, and after having worked with him on this, I give him my strongest possible recommendation. I’m really pleased with what he came up with. I think it’s a perfect match for the story. I hope you guys like it too!
