WGW is final

   Posted by: amrath

I am pleased to announce I just sent “War God’s Will” final manuscript to the publisher. It’s finally done. It will take a few months to get through the publishing process, but hopefully it will be available in ebook, print, and audible by late summer.

“War God’s Will” is done

   Posted by: amrath


I sent it for a final proofread today. I am not certain when it will be out, as that’s up to Aethon, but I hope within a few months.

“The War God’s Will” Update

   Posted by: amrath

Still working on it. I know I keep pushing it out, but it’s just life and not having enough time. The book was ‘finished’ months ago, but the editing wasn’t done until late December, and my day job has kept me busy enough that I haven’t had much time to actually apply the results of the editing pass. It’s in progress, and I expect to finish sometime this month or next, assuming I don’t get another crunch with my day job. It’s just a fact right now that the day job pays the bills, so it has priority.

Rapidly approaching second draft status on WGW. I am on target for a release this Summer, assuming all goes well.

Still not there

   Posted by: amrath

As I am sure is obvious, I did not make my end of summer deadline, but I did accomplish a great deal, nevertheless. I’d say I am about 75% to a beta, and if I work really hard, I can finish that by end of October. It will take me another month to edit, get feedback, make fixes, edit, and get ready to publish in time for Christmas. I am looking to build a launch team to help with this and offer commentary, so by all means, if you’re interested, contact me.

New Cover Sketches

   Posted by: amrath

As part of the release of book 3, I have had to face something I did not much like: I have been told that my previous covers were not ‘genre appropriate’, and would hurt sales. I like them, but sadly, I have come to accept that the people who know this business are probably right.

Fortunately, as a programmer, I know a lot of artists. Thanks to Darren Bartlett of Liquid Development for introducing me to Egil Thompson, who has just sent me roughs of his proposed new covers.

I will miss the old covers, but I am really stoked to see someone with great skill bringing these characters to life. The symbols for the gods, the Xanthian and Nihlosian styles, Nihlos and Torium in the backgrounds, it’s pretty amazing.

“The War God’s Will” schedule

   Posted by: amrath

Yup, still going, and still about 50%, maybe a little more. It’s tough to know precisely, but it’s going, and I am pretty proud of some of the stuff I have so far. I should have it mostly done in early June, and I’ll put up a pre-order while I finalize proofreading. Maybe I can release part of a chapter next month, something that will be cool to see but not spoil things.

Father of Lies

   Posted by: amrath

I wanted to write an exorcism-as-a-gunfight story, supernatural showdown at High Noon, as ’twere. Here’s the result, a short, fun read, but not for the faint of heart. Demons use bad language. But then, so do exorcists, if they’re doing it right.

Not going to make it

   Posted by: amrath

(sigh) I am not going to make my 1st Quarter deadline for “War God’s Will”.  New baby, day job, and some personal matters. I am now gunning for a summer release. I think that gives me enough time to finish. What I can promise is that I am definitely working on it, and it’s coming along well.
