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.

The Telastrian Song available in paperback.

The Telastrian Song is available in paperback at long last. Apologies for the delay, but I had to be sure it was as perfect as I could get it. I’m happy that’s where it is now!

As usual, the paperback edition is within Amazon’s matchbook program, which means if you buy a paperback copy, you will be entitled to download the kindle edition for free. If you’re in the US, you can pick up a copy from Amazon by clicking here. I hope everyone’s having a great summer!

The Telastrian Song Now Available

The Telastrian Song is now available to buy! Currently it’s only available for Kindle on Amazon (USUK – DECAAU) and Apple iBooks, but it will be coming online with other retailers over the next few hours and days. The paperback will follow shortly after. I’ll post updates as it appears in other locations.

There’ve been a few delays and bumps along the way—the most recent bump was this morning, when my mailing list autosaved with the name of the previous book as the subject line, and sent it out with that rather than the proper one, so apologies for that! The body of the mail is the correct one though (I think! – it is Friday the 13th after all!)—so I’m delighted that the book is finally out. I really hope you all enjoy it, and have enjoyed Soren’s adventures.

I’ve put a lot of time and work into creating the Society of the Sword world over the last ten years, and have only scratched the surface in terms of exploring it, so expect to see many more tales set around the Middle Sea, and the appearance of some familiar faces in the months and years to come…

Finishing off my first trilogy is something of a milestone for me in my own adventure, so I want to thank everyone for your interest and support along the way!

Kindle Matchbook

As you may or may not know, Amazon have introduced a new concept called Kindle Matchbook. It allows publishers to bundle a discounted or free kindle copy with every paperback copy sold. I really like the idea of this, as I feel once someone has bought a product, they should be able to access it across all their platforms, digital and physical.

What it means for The Tattered Banner is that every paperback copy sold now on Amazon.com (I’m not sure about the international sites) comes with the option to also download a free Kindle copy!
