Sorceress Cover

Sorceress… coming… coming… Live!

Whew! So, it's been a long wait. Or, not so long given it's only been a couple of months since Avenger went live, but it feels like it's been a long wait. August seemed to move at a disabled centenarian snail's pace, one with a mac-mansion on its back instead of the usual shell. There's been so much to get ready, and for the longest time, I didn't think I'd get it all done. But I did. And now Sorceress is Live! It's Alive!!!! Bruhahahaha! (That was supposed to be an evil laugh.) :) Yeah. I know. Anyway, what that means is that I get to actually crawl away from my desk for a day or two, get reacquainted with my family, get to feel what a bed actually feels like, perhaps pop the cork on a bottle of bubbly. Then it's back to work to get Monstrous finished. There might be another short coming after that, prequel to the Undying Saga, but I'm not going to decide before I've kissed my wife and gotten at least one good night's rest. Oh, almost forgot. You can pick up Sorceress HERE, if you're interested, and I hope you are.

Book Release Announcement

Black Stump Books is proud to announce the release of Derek Chamberlain’s fantasy novella, Reaper Hawk: Battle Pits of D’nur, on August 15. Reaper Hawk: Battle Pits of D’nur is a fresh take on heroic Sword and Sorcery. It is a story of courage, commitment, betrayal, and revenge. A young barbarian warrior leaves his home in search of a name and on a quest for his vanished friends and clan mates. His search for the truth takes him into the Battle-Pits of D'nur where he is forced to fight humans and beasts. His quest leads him into conflict with some of the Empire's most powerful people who are determined to see him dead. Betrayal is met with rough justice, corruption with cleansing fire. Told as a tale to a troublesome minstrel, the clear voice and tight prose of this novella bring some much needed humility and humour to the grim business of being a youthful hero. Look for the cover reveal here on August 1st.
