What I Have Brewing

So while we’re waiting for Redemptor (Valducan #4) to release this November, I’ve been busy working on something new. Something very different.

My current Work-In-Progress is under the working-title Ashes of Onyx and it’s coming along rather nicely.  It’s a bit hard to describe (which is a problem when it comes to pitching it) but […]

2016 in Review

With any story, there is always the defining […]

The first of which is my thoughts on the social contract concerning the responsibilities and […]

Nine Facts About Sea of Quills

One year ago, my second Black Raven collection Sea of Quills hit the shelves.  So in keeping with the tradition with Eleven Facts about Mountain of Daggers, I want to celebrate with a few bits of trivia about Ahren’s second collection. And being that there are nine stories, it deserves nine fun facts.
