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.
In my latest novel, I have the pleasure of bringing my readers into the world and life of Olaf Tryggvason. This post describes the background story of Olaf’s lineage, his birthplace, his early life, and the circumstances that defined his upbringing.
That is the central question that Hakon Haraldsson must answer in GOD’S HAMMER. It is not an atypical question for the Dark Ages. There are countless stories of warlords and kings dying in their pursuit of the throne, or dying to protect it. Yet Hakon’s story stuck a chord with me because Hakon was not the typical Viking leader.
I am thrilled to share the cover art and synopsis of Book #3 of Hakon’s Saga with all of you. The book is called War King, and as the title suggests, it’s full of action.
I am thrilled to announce that my fifth novel and the second in the Olaf Saga series of books, Sigurd’s Swords, is now available to order on Amazon in print and eBook formats.
