Kickstarter Campaign Coming

I’m excited to announce my upcoming and first ever Kickstarter campaign. I will be offering an exclusive hardback omnibus edition of my Me Three series, featuring all four books in one awesome hardcover.

In addition, eBook, audio, and paperback versions will be available. Stretch goals will see even more goodies added, including custom artwork.

Launch day is 13th March. For now, please sign up to my pre-launch page. You will get an email when we go live. Thanks for your support!

A Crucible of Fire and Steel: Release of Book 2 of Heirs of War

It’s been a busy 7 days and I’ve just realised I haven’t officially announced the release of A Crucible of Fire and Steel on the website. So now I have.

A week on and the release is going well. Book One has a temporary price reduction on the eBook for January if you are new to the series. As for Book Three, this one is in the very early stages of the writing process and I don’t anticipate serious progress until later in the year.

That said, I do have a release of something else scheduled for the summer and some big news around that, so stay tuned. For more regular updates than this blog, make sure to sign up to my newsletter which is my primary method of communication. This is an email delivered to your inbox, around once or twice a month, depending on news.

Cover Reveal: A Crucible of Fire and Steel

 

Woot! SO pleased with my latest cover. A Crucible of Fire and Steel is book 2 of Heirs of War, releasing on 10th January. It is also something of a milestone, since it’ll be my tenth book to be published.

Bastien has outdone himself again with the beautiful, medieval style illustrations. Depicted are Liesel and Peyre who, along with Sanc, made up the point of view characters in book one. All three return for book two, along with some new points of view… Crucible is even more epic in scale than Inheritance, since Sanc has been sent to a new world. He finds himself drawn into the conflicts of this realm, while Liesel and Peyre must navigate the growing unrest in Dalriya.

Oh, and the geometric shape at the top is a nod to the Bastion, the royal fortification in Valennes.

New Release: An Inheritance of Ash and Blood

 

Excited and a little bit nervous to finally be releasing the first book of my new series, Heirs of War, now available to buy in eBook, paperback, hardback, plus available through kindle unlimited.

With An Inheritance of Ash and Blood I┬áreturn to the setting of my first series, Dalriya. Fifteen years have passed since Diis was destroyed. No, he’s not back-but a new god has arrived. He has enslaved the Lippers and the people of Dalriya, godless, find themselves unable to stop him.

We follow Sanc, who begins the novel aged 12, as he first becomes aware of the sorcerous powers he has been given. Where they come from, he doesn’t know. But in a world where sorcery is dying out, they mark him out as an important figure in the coming conflict.

Here are some details about the book:

  • There are three points of view: Sanc; his older brother Peyre; and Liesel, daughter of the last emperor of Brasingia.
  • The coming of age storylines are combined with epic fantasy style worldbuilding, political intrigue, and war.
  • Although we follow a new generation, some characters from The Weapon Takers Saga do reappear in this series.
  • This is my longest novel, at 125,000 words.
  • This is a planned series of three books. Book two has a release date of 10 January 2023. More news on this soon!

 

Cover Reveal: An Inheritance of Ash and Blood

I’m so excited to reveal the cover for An Inheritance of Ash and Blood, Book One of Heirs of War. Check out the official reveal over on fanfiaddict.

I hired French artist Bastien Jez to do the cover for me. He really understood what I wanted and I think his style suits the story perfectly.

I have an official release date of 6 September for the eBook. There will also be a paperback version and, for the first time, I plan to have a hardback version too.

If you can’t wait that long, I currently have the first chapter of the book available to read on the new series page on my website. Enjoy!

 

Paperback of Omnibus Edition Out Now

Until now, my omnibus title, The Weapon Takers Saga Books 1-3, has only been available as an eBook or Audiobook.

I’m pleased to say it is now available in paperback, too! Featuring three maps and clean formatting I’m really pleased with the way it has come out. It IS a bit of a brick, so check you have space on your bookshelf first! Or, just keep it by your bed and it can double as a weapon to stop intruders.

It’s currently available at all Amazon stores.

Ogre’s End Game: Final Audio Release of Me Three

The final book of the Me Three series, Ogre’s End Game, recently got its audiobook release. What a fun project it’s been, listening to Chuck Wagner bring the series to life!

Even if the writing’s gone a bit slowly this year, I can content myself with the release of four audiobooks! It’s been great to hear the positive feedback for Chuck’s performances – thoroughly deserved.

Remember, this series is WIDE, so there are several options to pick up the audio – check out the audiobooks page of my website for all the details.
