About Seth

Raised in the swamps and pine forests of East Texas, Seth Skorkowsky gravitated to the darker sides of fantasy, preferring horror and pulp heroes over knights in shining armor. His debut novel, DÄMOREN, was published in 2014 as book #1 in the Valducan series. Seth has also released two sword-and-sorcery rogue collections with his Tales of the Black Raven series. When not writing, Seth enjoys cheesy movies, tabletop role-playing games, and traveling the world with his wife.

It’s been quiet on my blog, but I’ve been busy chatting it up on other blogs.

So for anyone that has missed my current blog-storm, you can find them here.

At Beauty in Ruins, you can read about how I came up with some of the unique monsters I used for Dämoren, Hounacier, and the Screamers […]

Ibenus is Out

Ibenus hit the digital shelves today. Kindle editions are now available at Amazon.

While paperbacks started shipping out early last week, this is essentially the release day. Ibenus should begin appearing in bookstores and on Audible September 13th. 

But it’s out there. There are no last-second changes or tweaks I can make. It has flown from […]

Ibenus Pre-Orders Are Live

 

Pre-orders are available for Ibenus.

You can find it at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Once again, R.C. Bray narrates the Audible edition, which runs 10 hours and 44 minutes of pure awesome.

Amazon jumped the gun and started shipping some paperbacks a little early (I can only assume they were excited about it, as well). It was a […]

A Tale of Three Review Platforms or: Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Audible

We all know that reviews are important for authors. If you didn’t know that, then allow me to tell you that reviews are important for authors. For many new and lesser-known authors (like me) they can be the lifeline to new readers and to sales.  That means that authors spend way more time than […]

Audiobooks You Should Hear

As I’ve said many times before, I’m an audio book addict.  Listening to a book has become my standard entertainment while driving or working on some simple task that would prevent normal reading or watching something.  Audio books are the fastest growing market and frequently I’m asked which ones I’d recommend.  So here’s a list […]

Writing Update: Edits and Pre-Orders

I’ve been quiet on my writing updates recently. Time to correct that.

Ibenus has completed its first found of edits.  We’ll be making a few more passes to get it all nice and polished. I will say that reading it for the first time in months was a fun experience. I really like this one and […]

You’re Doing It Wrong – A Defense of Audio Books

I recently posted a review of a James Bond book on Goodreads. In it, I briefly touched on each of the stories in the book, making comparisons to the previous Bond novels and to the film franchise. It wasn’t anything amazing as far as reviews go, just the thoughts of a reader reflecting on a book. […]

Story Acceptance – Raid on Wewelsburg

I’m very excited to announce that my Valducan Archive Adventure ‘Raid on Wewelsburg’ has been accepted in Cohesion Press’ upcoming SNAFU: Black Ops anthology.

Germany, 1945 – In the final days of the Second World War, Lady Helen Meadows leads a team of knights past the front lines to recover the holy weapons plundered by […]

The Great Roleplaying Experiment – 5e D&D versus Call of Cthulhu 7e

As I’ve said before, I’m a massive roleplaying fan.  I’ve been gaming since I was 13 and I hope to continue until my dying days.

Two years ago, I posted how I was running a Pulp-Era game that was essentially mixing Call of Cthulhu and old horror movies using a modified Cyberpunk 2020 Interlock system.  It was […]

Three Casting Ideas to Save Indiana Jones 5

While many of my generation subscribed to the fandom religion of Star Wars, my great love went for Indiana Jones. Raiders of the Lost Ark was the first movie that I can remember seeing in theaters. Being three years old, I wasn’t paying too much attention to what would become my favorite movie series. […]
