This morning, I learned that God’s Hammer took first place in the AuthorDB cover contest.
With Halloween just around the corner, I wanted to share 10 creatures that may have felt very real to the people of the North.
I’m excited to let you know that Raven’s Feast, the sequel to God’s Hammer and the second book in Hakon’s Saga, has launched and is now available in print and ebook formats.
Today we’ve finalized the cover for book two of Hakon’s saga. The book is called Raven’s Feast and the cover art is done!
A number of people have asked me over the years why I chose Hakon Haraldsson (or “Hakon the Good” as the sagas call him) as the protagonist in the GOD’S HAMMER series (yes – it’ll be a series. I promise). While we don’t know all of the facts of Hakon’s life, we do know that even if marginally true, Hakon’s story takes many of the norms of Viking literature and turns them on their head. In many ways, Hakon is the anti-Viking, yet a memorable hero nonetheless. And that’s precisely what drew me to him.
