Oh boy, GoFundMe Part 3

I said I was going to draw this month, and finish Grimluk 4 (that might still happen) but uh, I’ve been dealing with my sleep apnea a LOT lately. And by dealing with, I mean, it’s kicking my ass. So I started another campaign. I’ve needed to get my sleep fixed for a LONG time. It’s interfering with my ability to work once more so here we go again. As always, you can buy my books or become a patron as well.

Help Me Treat My Sleep Apnea

 

Happy Orctober 2019!

orctober

It’s 2019 and another Orctober is upon us! And I have some exciting plans this year. Boy howdy, are you gonna be thrilled. Maybe even chilled. I’m going to show you some sights.

Because all I have planned this year is to participate in the art prompts. I’ve been both busy and distracted this year and with no book or Kickstarter this year and a lack of plans, as I continue trying to get the By Demons Be Driven first draft finished, I never got around to planning. So this year, I’m gonna try to do all 31 days of this year’s Orctober prompt card.

Orctober 2019 prompt list

Every week, I’ll post my work. This will also be good for me for practice. Should be fun. And probably a little frustrating. And hey, if you haven’t read any Grimluk yet, this is the perfect month to do it. Orcs fighting demons is pretty much what this month was made for.

Grimluk 4 Title Reveal

By Demons Be Driven

Goodnight, everybody!

I kid, I kid. So why this title? I’ve actually had this one for a couple of years. In this book, Grimluk will end up being hunted by demons. “The hunter becomes the hunted” will no doubt be in the blurb. It’s also a Pantera song and while I hate Pantera in my old age and wish someone would hurl Phil Anselmo into the sun, that title is fucking badass. So I’m stealing it. And while Grimluk will be hunted, he remains committed to being a hunter, stumbling upon a cult and setting about to shut it down. Wow, that doesn’t sound interesting because I’m skirting around giving away too many details. I don’t want to spoil things for you! But By Demons Be Driven will feature a wild hunt of sorts, a werewolf, some heavy use of Lovecraft filtered through my brain (explicitly more than what I’ve used so far), and probably the most action I’ll have written yet.

And hey, have a progress update: I’m currently hovering around 20K mark, which is not quite a third of the way to my minimum goal of 75K. It will probably end up being more. Demons Within got real close to 80K.

Four Year Anniversary Giveaway

It’s been four years since I released A Demon in the Desert and to celebrate, I’m doing a a month long giveaway. For all of June, you can get A Demon in the Desert for free in your choice of epub or mobi formats. I know by now that my first book was pretty rough but it got me started. It helped me start on a path to make me feel like a real person again and I’ll always be proud of that. Happy anniversary to my big green son.

You can get A Demon in the Desert here!

An Interview with Ashe Armstrong

Much love to the Fantasy Inn folks for letting me yammer on.

The Fantasy Inn

Today, we have with us Ashe Armstrong, author of Grimluk, Demon Hunter series.


Hello Ashe, welcome to the Inn! First of all, how are you and how have you been?

Doin’ alright. Think I’m finally getting over the last of this lingering cold.

Let’s kick off with a bang. You write books about a big ol’ demon-hunting orc. For those you might not be familiar with those, can you tell us a little bit about Grimluk and how he came to be?

Grimluk was originally going to be a swashbuckling orc with a claymore. An idea I still may use but I was discussing the idea with a friend one night and I just went, “Hey, so, what if I make him a gunslinger?” My friend’s response was “Fuck yes!” and then ideas just started pouring out.

It’s been around three and a half years since your debut novel, A…
