My first blog

So, my first blog. What should I say? This is the main reason I've resisted up until now, I don't think I have that much anybody would be interested in. But my publisher thinks I should have one so here it is... Oh yeah I'm getting ahead of myself here. My epic fantasy novel, medalist in March editors desk on has been signed by Cogwheel Press, click the thingie in the left corner and you'll be magically transported to their website. It'll be published and available to buy this autumn or fall depending on where you are.
Here's what it's about:

A warrior in exile seeks a path home

Banished from his homeland, a warrior of the Northern Clans grows weary of life in a harsh, alien land.

With the dark god Morrigu haunting his dreams, and a desert princess as a companion, Culainn, a warrior and champion sets forth on a journey north in search of a merchants daughter abducted by clansmen and taken back across the mountains. Through a land baked by a scorching sun, where bandits roam free and dark beasts stalk the night.

An ancient evil is rising from the desert. A Benouin myth of a ghost city inhabited by the souls of their ancestors, a bridge to the Underworld is unleashing demonic creatures on an unsuspecting world. Culainn and Persha, warrior and mage stand alone against a tide of darkness. All the while, Morrigu, the dark war god of the north seeks to use Culainn as her own tool, her own champion.

So that's it.
