I have my editor's notes back for Rise of the Wolf, the third book in my Forest Lord series. I have some work to do, although not as much as I did with Wolf's Head, which required a major overhaul! I need to add some sections, tweak some of the structure and go over some of the... Continue Reading →

In AD 9 there was nothing routine about taking an army into the Teutoberg Forest but commander Varus could have had little idea what lay in wait for his three legions when he led them east of the Rhine. Varus’s orders were to consolidate Roman control in this dangerous Germanic border region, to show Rome’s might, assert its authority. But history tells us of the disaster that followed.

Great new interview with me, mainly on self publishing. Check it out!
I’d like to welcome back B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree Steven A. McKay to talk with me today about his self-publishing experiences. Steven was born in 1977, near Glasgow in Scotland. He lives in Old Kilpatrick with his wife and two young children. His second book, The Wolf and the Raven was released on April 7th, at the London Book Fair where he was part of the Amazon stand. His début novel, Wolf’s Head, was also released the same day as an audiobook. Wolf’s Head is a Kindle top 20 best-seller and The Wolf and the Raven was the “War” chart number 1.
He plays lead guitar and sings in a heavy metal band when they can find the time to meet up.
Steven, when did you decide you were going to self-publish?
I really wanted to have my book picked up by an agent and then a publisher and see…
