Voiced by the incomparable Mike Jameson, I’m really proud to finally have the whole trilogy on audiobook (took me long enough to get around to doing it, lol) and I’m very pleased with his performance. Mike is an awesome guy and a pleasure to work with, it’s been so much fun watching him bring the characters to life.
I have some grand designs to try and voice my own audiobooks for some of my newer works–I’d love to give it a shot, provided I can voice-act well enough to live up to my standards. Anyway, I’ll keep you posted on future audiobook releases. Y’all are the best.
I’m really excited to share with you the cover of Book 2 of Hymn of the Ancients: Blood of the Demonheart! Feast your eyes on all its glory, courtesy of cover artist Jeff Brown. It took some time and workshopping but he had great ideas on where to go with it, and I’m really happy with how it came out. What do y’all think?
WRITING UPDATE: I’m glad to say I’m most of the way done with the first draft of Blood of the Demonheart. It’s taken a bit longer than I’d normally like with this novel, but I’d rather do it right than rush it out. I’m hoping to have it released by Spring of 2022.
In other news, I have been continuing to workshop and write both a new Post-Apocalyptic novel, and a piece of contemporary fiction as well. Those are still in the early stages, but I’ve written a number of chapters for both. I’m looking forward to continuing to work on those, because I’m a crazy person and I have too many ideas and not enough time to write them.
So I’ve been working on my next projects (Book 2 of HotA and a few others), but nonetheless I’ve been continuing to tinker with Hymn of the Ancients, mostly just correcting grammatical errors missed in the edits. But also I UPDATED THE NEW MAP OF DEMAREST!
I’ve been using this super fun mapmaking software called Wonderdraft, it took a little while to learn but it’s so much fun. Certainly gives me something fun/productive to do when I’m procrastinating writing anything.
I decided to go with the classing “paper” version of the map rather than the color one. I think it just looks classic and cleaner, and the other version came out a little dark in the paperback, so I updated that as well.
Anyway, I wanted to take a minute and thank everyone who’s been reading Hymn of the Ancients, and everyone who left a review or gave me feedback I really appreciate it! I know there were a few grammar errors that were missed in editing but I believed I’ve cleaned just about all of them up at this point. I’m really proud of this book, and it’s fun jumping into a new genre and seeing how it flies on its own like a bird leaping out of the nest.
I’ve got some more projects percolating, both fantasy and post-apoc, so stay tuned.
The day has finally come. My beloved new fantasy novel Hymn of the Ancients is officially live on Amazon Kindle Unlimited!
I cant wait to get this baby into the hands of readers. It’s finally done and it’s time to celebrate for a few days before I get back to the grind.
All I can say is that I am incredibly proud of this work–and for those of you who are used to me writing post-apoc, don’t fret, I will write more of the wastelands. But if you have any interest in fantasy or if you enjoy my writing–I’d be honored if you gave it a shot.
And on top of that, it’s on sale for $0.99 for launch! Part of my tactical launch strategy to make the most of the Amazon Algorithm.
Anyway, to all of my readers who have supported me along the way, I am so grateful to y’all, and I really hope you enjoy this one. I know I have.
Ah, the trials and tribulations of self-pub. To be honest, I love it. Having creative control and being at the helm of the ship so to speak is just so much damn fun. I think i’d be bored if I just sent it off to a publisher and twiddled my thumbs.
Anyway, I hope y’all have a great weekend. STAY AWAKE, STAY ALIVE!
I’ve got a handful of reviews so far, and I’ve got more coming down the pike. The feedback has been awesome, I think people are really enjoying this one. KU will get some more eyes on this bad boy and we can get this train rolling downhill!
I’m really tired, lol. But I am so very excited to announce this. Because I’ve worked incredibly hard on this, and I think it’s going to be everything my readers ever wanted from a origin story for the American Rebirth Series.
It follows Rob, Taylor and Whiskey from the very beginning. And good goddamn was it fun to write.
It’s live on Amazon, just click the picture above. It’s live on some of my other distributors too, but it’s just taking a little while for some of them to publish it. I’ll post links to it later on when they’re all live. And the paperback should be live soon, too.
For all the readers, fans, friends and loved ones that have supported me all the way, this is for you. I appreciate you more than I can put into words.
I truly hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
I’ve been working with Jeff Brown on the cover for Death in the Wastelands, American Rebirth Origins and I’m really psyched to say it’s completed.
He’s a pretty special artist. If you want you can check him out here at Jeff Brown Graphics. It’s been fun seeing it come to life, but most exciting of it all is that it’s another milemarker closer to getting the book out there.
Getting the cover made is a big part of the story feeling like it’s coming to life. I’m editing it right now, and hopefully it’ll be ready by early Summer.
Man, I can’t wait. I think y’all are gonna like it.
