The past few weeks have been extremely eventful.

On May 10th I had my first signing event and book release party at Area 51 Gaming & Collectables in Grapevine Texas. The signing event went extremely well. After it was through, we kicked off the party. My friends surprised me with a beautiful shadowboxed copy of Dämoren enclosed with an engraved shell. They also got me a matching Dämoren shell pendant.

Damoren Signing Event

I’ll have another signing event this June at Clockwork Gamer this late June. The date isn’t set yet, but I’ll post it once it is. If you’re in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area, please drop by.

Dämoren has had a very successful first month. As of now it’s still at #59 on Amazon’s Top 100 Urban Fantasy list.

It also received a very good review on TheDarkEva.com. It said, “So, to sum things up, as some other reviews have pointed out, if you’re a fan of Jim Butcher’s style of urban fantasy, you can’t get enough of Supernatural and you like original urban fantasy that places less emphasis on the romance and you like your world-building, but you especially like your demons, buy this book.”

 Also, I took part in a podcast interview with Adventures in SciFi Publishing, alongside the rest of the Ragnarok Publication team. We discussed our Grimdark character arcs. You can listen to it Here.

In other news, Hounacier’s description has officially been announced on the Ragnarok Publications website, and also on the Official Valducan Series Facebook Page.

HOUNACIER (Valducan #2)

Eleven years ago, atheist Malcolm Romero met a god. Now he’s a demon-hunting voodoo priest armed with a holy machete named Hounacier.

After the murder of his mentor, he returns to New Orleans to catch the killer. But more is at stake when Malcolm finds himself betrayed, cursed, and his holy blade stolen. Now Malcolm’s only hope to save his soul and to recover Hounacier, is the Valducan knight sent to kill him, Matt Hollis, the wielder of the holy revolver Dämoren.

So…what do you think? We’ve got murder, a few familiar faces, voodoo, and the city of New Orleans. Now I just need to finish it.
