Sea of Quills

Black Raven Flies Again

Now that my 90-day separation with my old publisher has completed, I’m very pleased to announce that Tales of the Black Raven has been re-edited and released by Crossroad Press.

 

A huge thank you to David Wilson and David Dodd for all their support and help in bringing my little Sword & Sorcery adventures back […]

Moving On

After three years and five books, I’ve decided to end my relationship with Ragnarok Publications.

I won’t lie. This wasn’t easy. But it had to happen.

I’m not going to go into much detail here. There’s several reasons, some big, some small, but the short of it comes down to business.  Writing is a business. Publishing […]

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.
**Spoilers Below**
1:  Unlike most of […]

2015 in Review

This year has been incredible. In the 10 years since my first sale, 2015 was the first time I openly referred to myself as an author. Before that, it felt sort of weird, like I was some wanna-be pretending I was something that I wasn’t.  Even after Dämoren released in 2014, I was apprehensive about […]

Sea of Quills is on Audible

 Audiobook lovers can now find Sea of Quills on Audible, narrated by R.C. Bray.  While I haven’t finished my initial listen (I’m halfway through City Beneath the Kaisers right now), I can safely say that R.C. has done another fantastic job bringing Ahren to life.  It’s been ten years since I penned my first Black […]

Sea of Quills is Out

Once again, a lunar eclipse had heralded a book release. My second Black Raven collection, Sea of Quills is out on Kindle today. Other formats, including Audible, will be available shortly. Needless to say, I’m very excited. I want to thank Tim Marquitz, Joe Martin, and Jason Waltz for making this happen.

In honor of […]

Story Acceptance – Hungry Eyes

I’m very happy to announce that my short story Hungry Eyes has been accepted by Cohesion Press for their upcoming SNAFU: Hunters anthology. 

Set in 2009, this will be part of my Valducan Archive Adventures. It follows Malcolm, Colin, and Nick as they explore the Paris catacombs in search of a demon. I had a lot […]

Cover Reveal and Audible Release

This week Audible released the audio version for Hounacier.  I’m very happy to say that R.C. Bray has done a spectacular job bringing it to life.

It’s a very strange feeling getting to listen to your book for the first time.  Scary. Bit exhilarating.  You wonder how certain characters are going to sound or the pacing […]

Story Inspirations -Venice

I’ve written before about how travel has inspired many of my story ideas.  Now that Mountain of Daggers is just about to arrive, I want to share how much Venice Italy has influenced it.  In fact, if wasn’t for Venice there would be no Black Raven series.  I’d originally written a single story, Birth […]

Audible Release and Sea of Quills Revealed

For those who have been wondering how to pronounce Dämoren, I have some very good news. Dämoren is now available on Audible, narrated by R.C. Bray.

 Listening to the story read by another person was surreal.  Once I became used to it, it was the first time I’ve ever been able to sit back and enjoy […]
