Google Play and other news…

Happy New Year to everyone. I hope you all had a good holiday.

I had my usual plan of watching my way through a stack of classic movies that I’d bought in the run up to Christmas, but in the end I only managed to watch a couple of them. I spent quite a bit of time working on the book I plan on releasing once the final part of the Society of the Sword trilogy is out (which is being edited as I type). I think I mentioned it about this time last year when I was working on the first draft. It’s allowed me focus on an aspect of the Middle Sea that I didn’t really get the chance to spend much time with in Society of the Sword, and it’s nice to explore something different within that world.

In other news, both The Tattered Banner and The Huntsman’s Amulet are now available on Google Play’s bookstore. I’ve been hearing good things about Google Play lately, so thought it was time to get a presence there!

Otherwise, all the best for 2014!

Review at Reading Realms…

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.

Review time…

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!

I’ve been looking forward to making this post for a couple of weeks now, and am delighted to reveal the cover for my next book, The Huntsman’s Amulet.The Huntsman's Amulet

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, 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!
