    Any updates on book 2?

    Title kind of says it all. I'm even willing to purchase from Amazon (which I try not to)

    Who soiled their armor?

    I got a little confused. I thought it was Dal, but then it is Ulric who is washing his underwear and uncomfortable because he put them back on wet. I also wanted to let you know that I gave the book 5 stars on Barnes and Noble. I really enjoyed it and look forward to the next one. As I...

    Chronicles of Empire (books) trailer music

    I listen to a lot of film soundtrack and film trailer music, and some of it especially helps inspire my thinking on the Chronicles of Empire series. However, there's a track for each book in the main arc that I often listen to, and imagine I'm watching a trailer. This helps me imagine scenes...

    Brian G Turner interview

    @thaddeus6th has done a detailed interview with me here: Thaddeus the Sixth: Interview with Brian Turner I made a point that I wouldn't do an interview with anyone unless they'd read my work and could ask me about it. Which is exactly what he did. :)

    Gathering Commentary 2: Chapter 1 (Spoiler free)

    The second part of my commentaries on Gathering (Chronicles of Empire 1) continues with chapter 1: PART 1: DANGEROUS PEOPLE ^ The sudden break after the opening chapter, then switch to a new character, should hopefully alert the reader that the opening chapter was actually a prologue. ^...

    About the Chronicles of Empire series

    A couple of people have asked about how many books there will be for the Chronicles of Empire series. The honest answer is that I'm not quite sure - simply because I don't know how much of my writing will go under the Chronicles of Empire banner, and how much will go under different ones. The...

    Gathering Commentary 1: Prologue (Spoiler free)

    I'm going to do an author commentary on the first two chapters of Gathering (Chronicles of Empire 1), to show some of the writing decisions I made, and why.

    Gathering - first reviews

    The first review of Gathering has been posted to Goodreads, which is nice - even better that it's 5 stars. :) A review of Gathering Of course, I appreciate that it's not going to be to everyone's tastes - someone else I sent an arc out to bounced it back today as not their thing, which is...

    Chronicles of Empire - soundtrack music

    During the late 1990's I composed a soundtrack album for Chronicles of Empire - Gathering. I'm not going to claim it's any good - I don't know music theory and I tend to compose by playing with one finger. However, I always hear music, and this was something that possessed me for some time...

    Why I'm self-publishing

    I began 2016 with the intention of submitting to agents, and getting a traditional publishing deal this year. But the first problem I encountered is that agents specialising in sf/f have little interest in epic fantasy. Which doesn't make sense when you think how successful that subgenre is -...

    Chapter Previews

    Hey I was wondering why the author doesn't post chapter samples of Chronicles on the main site. It would give us all a taste of what he has in store for us.
