REVENANT WINDS promotion week

In preparation for a REVENANT WINDS promotional surge which starts in a few days, I’ve dropped the price across all retailers and most countries. This means that you can pick up the book for a steal, and if you like audiobooks there’s even better news — you can add audiobook narration at a discount as well.

Currently on Amazon US the ebook is $0.99, and you can add audio narration for only $1.99!

Blurb:

As a secret cabal schemes to awaken an evil thought defeated millennia ago, the lives of three unlikely heroes are fated to converge:

Aldric, a veteran priest and sorcerer, who seeks acceptance from the church that shuns him. On the brink of their approval, he receives a mission that brings him face to face with a long-buried evil.

Niklaus, master swordsman, and slave to his goddess, who plots to split the veil between life and death and ascend to become her equal.

Kurio, the runaway daughter of a noble family, now turned to thievery, who stumbles across a disturbing secret that binds her future to infernal designs.

Drawn toward a horrifying endgame by an unknown force, Aldric, Niklaus, and Kurio find themselves in a battle not only for their lives, but for the beliefs that have come to define them.

A wrong decision, an overreaching ambition, or the failure of an already tormented faith, is all it will take to plunge mankind into an eternal dark.

SHADOW OF THE EXILE final description!

It’s all coming together, people! There’s editing, promo text, draft covers soon, coming up with a release plan… so much to do and I still have the sequel to write. But, writing is progressing smoothly and book 2, Dawn of the Exile, is 75% done.

The Goodreads listing is also up, and you can add it here: SHADOW OF THE EXILE

Anyhow, that’s not what you’re here for, this is, the description for SHADOW OF THE EXILE:

Outcast and exiled, the demon Tarrik Nal-Valim has long been forgotten by the world of humans. At least, so he thinks.

But when he is summoned as a last resort by a desperate sorcerer, it seems as though his past has caught up with him. The sorcerer is Serenity “Ren” Branwen, the daughter of Tarrik’s former master—and friend. Though she seems cold, driven, and ruthless, Tarrik can tell that Ren has her back against a wall, and he is compelled by ferocious powers to obey her.

As their world sinks into a terrifying maelstrom of murder, intrigue, and insurrection, Tarrik is forced to serve Ren’s arcane designs—plans that, if they were to succeed, would resurrect unimaginable power and could destroy Tarrik’s entire race.

But as events unfurl, the lines between demon and master become blurred, and Tarrik realizes that Ren is not what she seems. To prevent utter devastation, Tarrik may have to surrender what he values most: a chance at redemption and an end to his exile.

A final note: In case you weren’t aware, the book is entirely in the single POV of a demon.

Progress report

If you’re curious about the status of what I’m working on, what’s happening with publishing deals, and anything else I think of at the time, then sign up for my newsletter here: Newsletter  I’ll be sending them out every few months, and there’s usually also information on a new release or a discount deal from another author included!

As it has been a year and seven months since A Shattered Empire was released, and seven months since Revenant Winds was published, I thought it would be a good idea to outline what I’ve been up to and what that means for future publications.

A couple of decisions added complications, but overall they’re good complications! I have a few irons in the fire, so here’s a breakdown:

47North series

Shadow of the Exile (book 1) – October/November(?) 2018 release, not finalised but the time frame is firm
Dawn of the Exile (book 2) – April/May 2019 release

Will 47North want more installments in the series? It will depend on sales.

The Tainted Cabal series

Revenant Winds book 2 – my best guess is early-mid 2019. My two books for 47North put this project on the back burner, and working on this is next on my list.

The Necromancer’s Key hexalogy

Shadow in the Flame (book 1), is complete, as are outlines of all six books. Book 2 in the series is almost half written. With this project I have a few options, but at this stage I’ve focused on getting the manuscript in great shape. I expect I’ll be able to tell you more about what’s happening in a few months.

Raven series

Raven: Reawakening (book 1), is complete. Again, I’m focusing on getting the manuscript in great shape.

It might look like I’m all over the place, but there is method to my madness! As with any business, I had to look to the future and decide what would be best for my career as an author. So I decided that while I’m working on my unexpected 47North series, I would do all I could to get two new series in good enough shape to pitch to agents/publishers, if I decided to take that route — hence The Necromancer’s Key hexalogy and Raven series.

I can’t put a time yet on when the first books in these series will be released, as it depends on many factors. But I can say that although my novel release rate has been a little slow over the last few years, with three completed and two half completed manuscripts currently, my publication rate will significantly increase in the following few years. And I’m very happy about that!
