It’s Orctober 2018!

the demons within-front finishedWelcome to the party fellow orcs and orc lovers! It is Orctober once again and the very first thing you need to know is that The Demons Within is live and for sale and ready for you to read and review! You check out the first chapter in the link there or pick your retailer of choice here!

Mostly this year, I’ll be hyping up this book but I’ve got a few other things in mind as well. Along with some snippets from The Demons Within, I’ll do some character introductions as well, a revised version of Grimluk in D&D (RAW and Homebrew versions), and a Grimluk AMA (Ask Me Anything) at the end of the month. If you’ve been wondering things about Grimluk, you can totally shoot me a message via the contact form on the Socialize page, or tweet me, or send an ask on tumblr, whatever way you prefer! Finally, I’ll be sprinkling some art and artists throughout as well!

Keep your tusks clean, everyone!

The Demons Within Pre-Orders are Live

It is September 1st, and that means that The Demons Within is available for pre-order! Currently, you can get your copy reserved on Amazon, Kobo, and Apple while some of the other retailers are still rolling out. I love my books but I am REALLY excited to get this one out. Laura Hughes, who did the editing, had nothing but nice things to say about the book when she finished. And my proofreader was utterly enthralled as well. I really think you’re gonna love this book, too!

Reserve your copy here!

Paperbacks will be available starting October 1st. Happy reading!

It’s Some News

First up, there’s a new post up on Patreon, finishing the first draft of my reimagined Ranger for D&D 5e. For a buck, you can follow along as I redesign what’s considered the least satisfying class in D&D.

Next up, The Demons Within is currently with a proofreader. Digital pre-orders should be up on September 1st. The time draws nigh!

Relatedly, my plans for Orctober this year are a bit simpler than last year. I will be primarily focusing on talking about The Demons Within. I may include some D&D stuff again but this year is all about promoting the new book.

That’s all for now. Enjoy your weekend, y’all!

SALE: Multi-author Box Set

Howdy, folks! I have an wonderful bit of news today. A Demon in the Desert is featured in a multi-author box set, put together by Tyche Books. It features Daniel Arenson, C. Greenwood, Thomas J. Radford, and my friends, K.S. Villoso and Krista D. Ball.

Arenson’s book, Requiem’s Song, is about weredragons. Yes. You read that right. Weredragons.

Greenwood’s book, Mistress of Masks, features three unlikely heroes joining together to save the world.

Radford’s book, Tantamount, features what amounts to the aesthetic of Treasure Planet but starring an unlikely and unwilling hero.

Then there’s my book, A Demon in the Desert, where we first meet Grimluk.

Kay’s book, The Wolf of Oren-yaro, stars a woman known as “The Bitch Queen”, a she-wolf struggling to rule and save her husband.

Finally, Krista’s book, Blaze, stars her immensely popular Bethany, a redheaded, half-elf demi-goddess with a foul mouth, a foul temper, and a wicked sword arm.

Each book is the first in a series or trilogy and you can get them ALL for just 99 cents at the following retailers:
