Dead Man's Steel - Release Date(s)

It's been a long, hard road, but the concluding volume of The Grim Company trilogy, Dead Man's Steel, is finished! It weighs in at almost exactly 140,000 perfectly chosen words.

The novel is set for release on December 1st, 2016 in the UK and Commonwealth, and January 3rd, 2017 in the US and Canada. Click the links just to the right to pre-order your copy!

Whats's next for me? First of all, an overhaul of this sadly neglected blog. I'm dipping my toes back into game design and will be helping out on another addition to a legendary CRPG franchise. Alongside that, I'll be developing proposals for future standalone novels set in the world of the The Grim Company. Nothing is signed yet, but rest assured you haven't heard the last of our heroes. Or at least those that survive book three...

Dead Man's Steel - First Draft Completed

It's been a while since my last post, hasn't it, friends? I've been utterly focused on writing my third novel, Dead Man's Steel.

My understanding is that the book is currently scheduled for a late summer release in the UK and a December release in the US - but this might change depending on how quickly I can turn around the edits. Obviously a simultaneous (or near simultaneous) late summer/Fall release would be ideal, at least as far as a joint publicity push and avoidance of spoilers goes.

More to come soon...

Sword of the North Giveaway & Book Three Update

I'm giving away signed copies of Sword of the North to lucky readers in the UK/Ireland and North America. Just head on over to Goodreads for your chance to win!

My third book, Dead Man's Steel, is slowly coming together. Penguin had the novel listed for an April 2016 release, but it's going to be pushed back a little as I haven't yet delivered the finished manuscript. I'm confident the book will still see a 2016 release, but as of right now I have no firm date...
