By Demons Be Driven
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.
Hey y’all! Blog’s been a bit quiet lately. Apologies. I come bearing a few updates, however!
Welcome 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!
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!
Paperbacks will be available starting October 1st. Happy reading!
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!
