The Wolf of the North Audiobook!

My second announcement of the day is something I’ve really been looking forward to revealing for some time. My work is finally coming to audio! The Wolf of the North is the first book to be released, but the rest of my back catalogue will be coming out over the course of this year. I’ve teamed up with Podium Publishing for this to make sure it’s the very best it can be.

The Wolf of the North is narrated by Simon Vance. I hope you’ll agree that he was a fantastic choice, and that his voice and narration style are a perfect fit for the book. It’s a strange thing to hear your work read by someone else, but I’m really impressed with the job he did. If you like audiobooks, I think you’ll really enjoy his performance!

Release day is 16 May, but you can preorder your copy now at the following links:

The Wolf of the North Now Out!

the-wolf-of-the-north-banner

I’m happy to announce that The Wolf of the North is now out. It’s taken a lot longer to get here than I’d intended, and I apologise for the delay, but we’re finally there, and I think the end result has been worth the additional time and effort that went into it.

the-wolf-of-the-north-ebook-smallThe Wolf of the North is the first book of a new heroic fantasy trilogy set in the same Middle Sea world as my other books. Here’s what it’s about:

It has been generations since the Northlands have seen a hero worthy of the title. Many have made the claim, but few have lived to defend it. Timid, weak, and bullied, Wulfric is as unlikely a candidate as there could be.

A chance encounter with an ancient and mysterious object awakens a latent gift, and Wulfric’s life changes course. Against a backdrop of war, tragedy, and an enemy whose hatred for him knows no bounds, Wulfric will be forged from a young boy, into the Wolf of the North. This is his tale.

I hope everyone is well, and I hope you enjoy The Wolf of the North!

Wolf of the North Map Reveal

First off, as you may or may not have known, The Wolf of the North will be available to buy on 12 October (next Wednesday). It’s taken a bit longer to get to this point than I had planned, but hopefully it will be worth the wait! There’ll be a couple more updates here, including an excerpt, between now and then.

I had a map made for The Wolf of the North, by Robert Altbauer, who also did the Ostenheim city map that you can find here. You can see more of his work over at fantasy-map.net. The map will also be in the release editions of the book, but I wanted to share it here because I love looking at it!

The Wolf of the North Cover Reveal

With release date for The Wolf of the North rapidly approaching, it’s long past time for the cover reveal! There will be more updates over the next few days, so stay tuned. I hope you all like the cover – I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out!the-wolf-of-the-north-ebook-small

Updates and an announcement of sorts…

Ok,  time for an update I think!

First off, there’ve been a few minor visible changes to the website, but a fair bit more going on under the bonnet (hood!). There’s still a little more to come, so please bear with me! Between renovating my apartment, minor knee surgery, and finishing off drafts for the first part of my next trilogy, finding time for everything over the past little while has been a challenge!

There’ll be a couple of more interesting things coming down the pipeline pretty soon, one of which is a new novella, called The Marcher Lord. It’s the story of a young, rural swordsman making his first journey to his capital city. It explores a region in the west of the Middle Sea world, called Mirabaya, so it’s been a fun opportunity to roll back the covers from another little bit of the world and explore it. I’ll be posting more about The Marcher Lord over the next few days. Expect plenty of intrigue and swashbuckling!

That’s all for now, so I hope everyone is doing well!

The First Blade of Ostia now available!

I’m happy to announce that The First Blade of Ostia went on sale last Friday. To be notified as soon as I release a new book, you can sign up for my New Release Newsletter.

The First Blade of Ostia is set a little more than a decade before The Tattered Banner, so you’ll see some familiar faces (albeit younger!) and some new and interesting ones also. It follows a young man called Bryn as he embarks on a duelling career after graduating from Ostenheim’s Academy. He’s accompanied on this path by his best friend, a young aristocrat named Amero…

Writing this book gave me the opportunity to explore the role dueling plays in Ostian society, something I’ve been eager to do ever since first developing the world for The Tattered Banner. It was a lot of fun to write, so I really hope you enjoy the story!
You can pick up a copy from the following vendors. iBooks and Barnes & Noble will follow shortly, and the paperback should be available soon after.
