Citadel of Demons Cover Reveal

Citadel of Demons is off with my test readers which means that, barring someone discovering a huge plot hole (an eventuality I am never prepared to discount), it should be released within the next month. That being the case, now seems like a good time to show off the cover, once again courtesy of Clarissa […]

The Aeronaut’s Windlass

A captain cashiered for cowardice, now the most successful privateer in the sky. A motley crew of young cadets from the Spirearch’s Guard entrusted with a mission that should by rights go to older and more experienced heads. A sinister tea-drinking sorceress who will murder you if you are impolite to her, but you have […]

Mistakes Were Made

Well, this is embarrassing. Having spent the last couple of blog posts talking about building a wiki for my Kormak series, I now have to admit I got it all wrong, and am canceling the project. What happened? I realized, as is so often the case, that I was going about things the wrong way. […]

RedNotebook and Other Journals

There’s evidence that suggests that writing every day can make you happier. There’s also evidence that suggests that keeping a journal is good for you. I don’t know know how much I believe this but I do know that I have kept a journal for a very long time, and the one that I use […]

Writing in Tabs

Last week I mentioned that the thing I liked most about writing in Google Docs was using tabs. It made a difference for me. I was able to keep my notes in one tab, my outline in another and my work in progress in a third. If I wanted to look up something, all I […]

Intel Extreme Masters Katowice

  Take a look at those pictures. They are modern gaming or at least one aspect of it. I took them at the Intel Extreme Masters in Katowice, Poland. It was held in Spodek, a sport’s arena, and that does not seem inappropriate. I was there signing copies of Illidan at the Blizzard shop. At […]

Patron of the (Grimdark) Arts

I signed up for Patreon so I could support Grimdark magazine. Patreon is a website that let’s you back artists and creators on a regular and recurring basis. It’s a bit like Kickstarter, but you make an ongoing commitment via credit card or Paypal to back the artist or project you are supporting. The model […]

New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year everybody! It does not seem that long ago since I was writing one of these posts but already a year has gone by and it’s time to talk about resolutions  again. I’m not going to try anything as madly ambitious as trying to post every day this year, but I do have […]

Nanowrimo Week 3

So it’s Week 3 of National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo) and I am still plugging away. I’ll be honest, it’s been a lot harder than I expected due to the resurgence of my vertigo. This makes writing on a computer anything but pleasant. I’ve soldiered on and as of yesterday afternoon I had reached 40657 […]

Nanowrimo: Halfway Mark

So it’s the 16th of November, and we’ve passed the halfway mark for National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo). On the 15th I hit 25079 words on Extinction Event, thus keeping me on target. I had hoped to be further along but as they say no plan survives contact with the enemy. In my case, the […]

NaNoWriMo Again

Right now I am roughly 5000 words into my project for National Novel Writing Month. It’s only the second day of this 30-day effort to get a 50,000-word book written, but I feel like I’m making decent progress. In theory, I only have to write just over 1660 words per day to hit the target. […]

Portents of Doom Released

Portents of Doom, the tenth Kormak book, has just gone live. In it, our monster-hunting hero finds himself hunting his most dangerous foe yet the sinister Shadow-worshipping sorcerer Balthazar and his shapeshifting allies. Here’s the blurb. PORTENTS OF DOOM Led by their lycanthropic shaman, mutated tribesmen emerge from the jungles of Terra Nova, slaying in […]

The Burning Legion Returns

I’ve spent the last month in the country with very limited access to internet so I missed most of the build-up to the release of Legion. No dread lord invasions of Ogrimmar for me. Last night though, after attending a Legion launch party at Geekarna, a splendid local cafe, I hit the beaches of the […]

Interview About Writing Kormak

A quick post. There’s an interview with me on the subject of writing the Kormak series over at the Dark Heroic Fantasy Blogspot. I’d like to thank Peter Welmerink for giving me the chance to ramble. If you’re interested in finding out when my next book will be released as well as in getting discounts […]
