Ember Blade Map and where I am right now…

Happy New Year!

Time for one of my hyper infrequent blog updates! Well, I’m about 20-odd chapters into the sequel to the Ember Blade, but a large chunk of time was spent upfront planning the whole thing so it’s not going quite as slowly as it might seem. That’s probably about one-fifth; I’m hoping it won’t be quite as long as its predecessor and certainly no longer, but who know what the gods of epic fantasy will decree? I’m also working on a ton of other stuff that as ever I can’t talk about just because.

One of those things that I CAN, however, talk about is that I spent several months of last year working as a Narrative Consultant on The Creative Assembly’s new video game IP, helping with worldbuilding, story and character design, and all kinds of goodies thereabouts. I can’t tell you anything more about the game since it’s not been announced yet but it’s gonna be soooo good!

The Ember Blade has had a slew, a veritable SLEW of rave reviews by the way, so if you haven’t bought it yet, you are objectively on the wrong side of history and should correct this immediately by buying it here. And if you’ve read it and enjoyed it, and you want to do me a favour and give it a review on Amazon at that same link, that’d help me out loads.

I had a request on Twitter to post a map up as it’s not easy to enjoy maps on an ebook, so here it is. Unfortunately it’s a pdf so you’ll need to click the link to download it. I promise no spybots will swarm your computer when you do. Promise.


Have a good 2019!

    Happy New Year Chris.
    Have read the Ember Blade, loved it, cant wait for the next book. I am a big fan, have read and re-read the Ketty Jay series and actually appreciate that you put so much work into your writing instead of blog updates. Wishing you a very happy and prosperous New Year.
