New book: A Hero’s Calling

A Hero's Calling cover

I have released a new book. Download a sample and check it out!

In ancient times, the dark god Kronos crafted weapons of war in his fiery lair. His worship has long been eradicated, his followers driven into hiding… and yet he remains…
Creatures of shadow are crawling through the land of Eloesus… they seek one man above all else: Theron, upstanding citizen, master swordsman, and veteran of many wars. As he flees, doom is falling over the land: clouds of fire hover over the ancient city of Thenai and infernal names not spoken in thousands of years thunder from the mountaintops.
A hero is needed. A wind of destiny is blowing, yet Theron is one false step from death.

Illustrations, encyclopediae and more

I’ve had questions about various aspects of my world before. I wanted to point out a website where I put all my notes, written up as entries, as well as super illustrations that I have commissioned.

One entry I just updated is here: tp://vardhtabooks.com/fey-priestesses/

That part of my world is featured both in Fell Winter and Tide of War.

There are certain other entries with illustrations, but not many… yet.

Please do check it out!

New novel released: Tide of War

tide of war coverI am happy to announce my new novel, “Tide of War” is available on Amazon. I had some technical issues with the pre-order system that I didn’t understand. I had this book finished long before I set it up; however, Internet gremlins conspired against me.

With this novel I blended elements of adventure, fantasy and chthonic horror. The cover was perfect for this novel, as the symbol of Zarubain where the novel is set is a lion on a blue field. The novel will only be $2.99 until it’s released on August 7, when the price will be raised to $5.99. I hope you take a look, and, hopefully, order. It’s currently available at…

New release: Army of Darkness omnibus

coverA new print book of mine has been just released! This has an extensive glossary and a map, as well as numerous other features that have never been in any of my books before, including black and white illustrations in the glossary. The cost of the illustrations and other features mean it’s a bit more expensive than the other print books at $17.99, but I believe you will think it’s worth it. Send me an email, contact@aj-cooper.com, if you’d like a signed copy.

Click here to view it on Amazon.

It should be available on Barnes and Noble soon.

(Pardon the awkward placement of the text — Amazon cut off the top part of the cover for some reason. It looks much better in physical form.)

Now presenting… print books

Now, three novels – Fell Winter, High Queen, and Dragon’s Son – are available in print, complete with maps. They have distinctive golden spines that I’m very proud of. You can order them at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

You can also order signed copies, as seen on the fancy new tab.

I am currently working with a wonderful illustrator to create some black and white sketches for the Vampire Origins novellas.
