I’m pleased to announce that the new Raven’s Shadow Novella, The Lady of Crows, is now available for pre-order as part of Issue #10 of Grimdark Magazine or as a stand-alone audiobook from Podium Publishing. The audiobook will be released on January 3rd 2017 and the eBook version on 13th January.
Description: A quest for bloody vengeance forces Derla, a skilled veteran of the Varinshold underworld, into the service of arch schemer King Janus. Charged with protecting the renowned drunkard and cardsharp Sentes Mustor, Derla finds herself drawn into a high stakes game with the notorious criminal overlord known as One Eye.
The audiobook version of my novella The Lord Collector is now available for pre-order at audible.com and audible.co.uk, narrated by Steven Brand in fine voice as usual. This is a Raven’s Shadow novella originally published in the Blackguards anthology from Ragnarok Publications. The release date is 30th June so anyone looking for a taster before Queen of Fire comes out might wan to check it out. Here’s my intro to the story:
‘The following story takes place in the same world as my novel Blood Song, the first volume in the Raven’s Shadow trilogy. I wrote it because I wanted to more fully explore characters who appear in Blood Song and the sequels Tower Lord and Queen of Fire. Readers familiar with my work are sure to recognize a certain pale-eyed, raspy-voiced Sword Master of the Sixth Order, and those curious as to the origins of the Tower Lord of the Southern Shore will find answers here. The tale takes place at the midpoint of the timeline described in Blood Song, a time when King Janus, with typical ruthlessness, is in the process of further consolidating his grip on the Unified Realm.’
