Archon STL

So… I’ve been asked to be a panelist at Archon STL, one of the Midwest’s premier SF&F conventions! I’ll be speaking at panels covering religion in fantasy, tips for aspiring writers, and good ol’ AD&D. If you happen to be there next month (Oct. 12-14), feel free to track me down at one of my panels or in the local pub. I may just have a free signed book for you!

Cheers,

DB

If you happen to be at DragonCon…

…then track me down next week beginning on Wednesday! I tend to haunt the bars at the host hotels so try those. Feel free to hit me up on Twitter — @dbenem — and I’d be happy to chat about dark, heroic fantasy, Game of Thrones, movies, beer, etc. I may even have a signed book or two on my person.

Cheers!

Feast Thine Ears!

I’m overdue in posting this but if you’re interested in my books (and waiting on the third — it’s coming along!) you may well enjoy the fantastic podcast I’ve been involved with. Crit Faced is a weekly Dungeons and Dragons gaming session featuring yours truly and a number of fantastic fantasy authors: Benedict Patrick (author of the Yarnsworld series), Timandra Whitecastle (author of The Living Blade series), Phil Tucker (author of The Chronicles of the Black Gate, The Godsblood Trilogy, and the forthcoming Death March LitRPG), and Josiah Bancroft (author of The Books of Babel series). These are some very talented authors and I’d highly recommend checking them out.

Anyway, the five of us have been playing a D&D campaign for a while now, and it’s being released weekly as a podcast. Each us us created a character who’d “fit” in the world of our own individual books — mine is a younger brother of Karnag Mak Ragg, so he’s an axe-toting barbarian badass. The podcast features lots of adventure and even more humor. You can check it out here:

OK. Who’s still wanting this book???

Alright, gang. I’ve been dealing with a lot of headaches in getting the final product out the door.

HOWEVER, if you’re one of my fine readers who’ve been following along on my (sad, pathetic) website, then I have an offer for you! The book should be officially released next week, but if you’re one of the first few to leave me your email address in the comments below, I will send you the Kindle file IMMEDIATELY SO THAT YOU MAY FEAST THINE EYES UPON THIS MASTERPIECE.

Ahem.

Erm.

So you can read the book early, that is.

Lemme know.

Cheers!

DB

UPDATE:  THANKS FOR ALL THE INTEREST!  WE HAVE OUR WINNERS.  AS FOR ANYONE ELSE KEEPING AN EYE OUT FOR THE BOOK, PLEASE LOOK FOR IT NEXT WEEK ON AMAZON!

Getting close…

Well the book is back from the editor and it should only take me a couple of days to make the changes. Then it’s off to the formatter who is generally pretty quick in turning things around. I’m hoping to have the ebook available in a couple of weeks (Nov. 14?) and the paperback perhaps a week after. Exciting times!

Cheers,

DB

I’m Done! I’m Really, Really Done!

Sooooooo…. The Wrath of Heroes is officially finished, at least in terms of my writing it. Now it’s in the hands of my formatter/artist and an editor. As soon as they’re through with it–a few weeks from now I’d guess–the book will be up for publication.

I have to say I’m very pleased with how this one’s turned out, and I can’t wait to hear reactions from the readers.

Cheers,

DB

Endings and so hard to, erm, end.

The Wrath of Heroes is getting close to the finish line. Frustratingly so. It’s nearly done. Promise. I’m just having my loyal beta readers from the first book go through the second for typos and to make sure it “flows.” The latter issue is a tricky thing with books with multiple points-of-view, but I’m thinking I have it right. As soon as I hear I’ve “stuck the landing,” so to speak, it’s off to the formatter and then to publication.

STAY TUNED!

A Brief Update

Been a bit since I’ve updated the site and since then I’ve been asked where things stand on the release of The Wrath of Heroes. I’m thrilled by the apparent interest, and can assure you things are close. I wish I could give a specific date but some things involved in the production process (beta readers, the speed of my formatter and artists, etc.) are beyond my control. Also, I want the book to be as good as I can possibly make it. That said, the book is about 95% done in terms of both writing and editing and I think we’re looking at late July or August. I’d hoped for sooner, but I’m confident the added time and effort have made a solid impact on the quality of the book. Look for it then!

Cheers!
