Kevin Killavey did a great job. We’re currently working on the next two.
As newsletter subscribers already know, I recently released the final book of the Ulfr Crisis trilogy. I had a blast writing it, and am happy to lead the story to its inevitable conclusion, but at the same time, a bit sad about leaving the characters and the world. Either way, here is the description.
The Ulfr conquest is complete. The towns of Badelgard lie destroyed, abandoned, or suffering under the rule of Fell Lords and their dark ladies. Against all odds, Kai Riverhall—the Dragon’s Son—seeks to put an end to the Great Witch and her eternal winter.
The final book of the Ulfr Crisis trilogy narrates three distinct lives.
In MY BROTHER THE MORGUIS, a man meets his long-lost sibling but begins to question his true identity. In QUEEN OF NOTHING, the new High Queen attempts to evacuate all survivors to another land. And in DRAGON’S SON, Kai makes one last effort to defeat the Great Witch before the statue of her goddess is fully pulled from its icy tomb.
I tried to think of a word to describe 2012, but it can’t be summarized too easily. It was a year of disappointments and victories, but I can’t see it as anything other than a large step forward.
Alysse Riverhall sails to her native land, vowing to return with an army of knights. While Sigmund sits on the throne, Kenna Wildsaber calls up spirits of darkness to aid her ambitions. The undead Great Witch of the Ulfr plots and waits for her chance. But only one of them can be HIGH QUEEN.
While humans battle for the throne, the Ulfr rise in the flesh, marching under the banner of the Frozen Skull. Soon they reach the home of Kai Riverhall, junior member of the Order of Scouts: a young man with a rare gift. The blood of the Green Dragon.

As some of you know, I am a member of Codex, a group of “neo-pro” science fiction and fantasy writers. Most of us traditionally publish but a fair number have dipped their toes (and some their whole selves) into self-publishing. We are each offering some books for free tomorrow, September 26, until September 27. The freebie bash begins at midnight tonight PST (3 a.m. Eastern Time). Your local time will vary, as Amazon is a worldwide company, but they will all be free soon.
Here is an Amazon Listmania! list with all the books on offer.
I am offering The Godless Land. Download, and enjoy!
ETA 3:53 pm:
Nocturne, Son of the Night is now available as an audiobook. The narrator, Matt Weight, did an excellent job.
In all, it took about a month and a half for auditions and approving the chapters, but the end result was well worth it.
Coming soon to iTunes.
First I’ll take a moment of silence for those who died on September 11, 2001. It’s hard to to believe eleven years have passed since then.
2. Nocturne got a makeover. His cover did, at least.
3. The audiobook for Nocturne Son of the Night is done and will be available within three weeks on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes. The narrator, Matt Weight, did an excellent job.
4. A bunch of neo-pro writers who do ebooks will be giving away *some* of their preciouses from September 26 to 27. I will be giving away The Godless Land. Spread the word!
(Click the cover to go to Amazon and sample, buy, et cetera. Other sites coming soon.)
I am super thrilled to announce that Fell Winter is available on Amazon. Kobo is figuratively giving me a heart attack with their converter, but I will–and verily–assay to get the book up on that site soon. Also, B&N.
Or in the words of my fellow Codexian Annie Bellet, cover pr0nz.
(Coming this autumn…)
An evil not seen in hundreds of years has awakened in the highland nation of Badelgard. The Ulfr – the original inhabitants of the land whose evil was matched only by their power over death – stir from their barrows.
The dead walk again at the command of an Ulfr witch. The fate of the High King and the possession of the High Throne grow more and more uncertain. Tensions flare between the lowborn commoners and the highborn descendants of the Seven Wardens.
In the middle of it all, the lowborn musician Brand Gutlaffson is thrust into a perilous chase thanks to the foolish decisions of his friend, the warrior Gunnar Whoreson. Their midnight flight takes them to the accursed land of Blackfold, where the ancient Ulfr goddess waits for Her awakening.
The cold begins to set in. But there is more to fear than darkness and snow in this FELL WINTER.
This 40,000-word novel begins the “Ulfr Crisis” trilogy.
