This morning marks a special day in the life of God’s Hammer, the first book in Hakon’s Saga. It’s been 12 years since it was first published. It has had two separate publishers and I’ve also self-published the book for a while. But today, under the stewardship of my publisher Creativia, God’s Hammer has reached the #1 spot (or bestseller status) on Amazon.com in Historical Fiction. For everyone who has purchased God’s Hammer, ranked it, left a review or simply mentioned it to a friend, THANK YOU! This is a special day.
