I am on the home stretch in preparing Einarr and the Oracle of Attilsund to go live wherever ebooks are sold! This cover was done by the wonderful William Eyster, Jr of Eyster Artistry Studios.
I think he did a great job, and we’re planning on working together on not just covers but other series art going forward.
My goal is to have Oracle live as an e-book by February 20. Around that same time I should be able to move Jotunhall from Smashwords, which hasn’t been updated in almost a decade, to Draft2Digital, so if the appearance of the non-Kindle versions was turning you off, it might be worth another look.
Oh, and keep your eyes open: rumors of a wild sale in the area are afoot.
I hope you’re having a good one. Now go enjoy your family, friends and/or loved ones. Story returns on Thursday.
As PG commented at the end, I am so glad to be dealing with first world problems.
Having a baby in the house has, in afraid, has a greater impact on my ability to write than I can anticipated. Chapter 4.27 will be delayed until next Tuesday. By way of apology, here is a recent photo of the culprit:
I’m not even religious and I agree here. This actually touches on something DH and I have discussed regarding how we will raise our son.
I’ve not been entirely happy with the cluttered appearance of my site recently. You may notice changes in the theme or layout while I work on moving from a WP-hosted site to a self-hosted site: please pardon my mess, and feel free to make your opinions known as I go along.
In case you haven’t already seen, Book 1 of The Adventures of Einarr Stigandersen is now available for purchase more or less wherever you want to buy. In addition to the story chapters, which are still available here and at Royal Road Legends, any of you wonderful people who decide you’d like to support the story this way get access to some bonus content available nowhere else – a glossary, of course, and some maps, but also a telling of the actual Legend of the Isinntog.
Many thanks to Paraenesis, who did an awesome job on the front cover for me, and to my friend Jill for proofreading. I’ve tried to make sure the chapters up here are relatively clean, but it’s always good to have a second set of eyes.
Also, if you haven’t already picked up a copy, for the next week Advent of Ruin is on a Kindle Countdown Deal. For another day and a half yet, you can get the ebook for just 99 cents.
Einarr Stigandersen and the Jotünhall
Once upon a time, Stigander Raenson had been heir to a thanedom. Then a curse drove him and his family and crew out of their home. Dispossessed, the crew of the Vidofnir wanders the cold seas in search of treasure, glory, and a way to end the curse.
Einarr, son of Stigander, lives a vagabond’s life on the Vidofnir, never giving much thought to the home he barely remembers. That is, until an unexpected squall and the attack of a demon-headed ship send them to winter at the Hall of his father’s childhood friend.
Now Einarr has just a single season to convince the Jarl that he would be a worthy match for the Lady Runa, the Jarl’s only child. Will he return in one piece, or will the Jarl’s impossible quest be Einarr’s undoing?
Looking back a few years after hypothetical new restrictions on semiautomatic weapons in private hands, we see a country grown more divided, but no less armed.

When I was very young, and was first introduced to science fiction, I read a lot of things that objectively (and metaphorically) hurt my feelings and outraged my received opinions. … Most things I read, actually. It’s part of what attracted me to science fiction, the ability to put myself in another situation where […]
