Latest Goodreads review – 4/5!

Hello folks!

Received a great review on Goodreads! It’s always good to kick off the week with some positivity!

“Pious is a brilliant character, in equal parts heroic and mysterious, determined and frustrated. His lack of consistent memory forms a very interesting part of the book, as he becomes a character who is not only seeking the truth of the world around him, but also of his own part in it. This journey of self-discovery is excellently written by Chapman.

The world of this story is also well created. Many aspects of it can be likened to similar fantasy stories–as with many books of this genre, it owes much to the books and authors who have come before it. However, I didn’t feel that this detracted from the world-building and atmosphere of the book, as it is still an immersive and creative world. Overall, a great book, and will appeal to mystery and fantasy fans alike. I look forward to reading the next of the series.”
Thank you, Katherine! A few more reviews like this and I may have to finish some of the other books in the series (sooner rather than later)!

Questions on Artwork

Hi Folks! I need YOUR HELP!

The esteemed artist, Adam Edwards and myself, are trying to reach a conclusion…

For the print edition, what would you prefer, from an artwork perspective? What would you normally like to see in any good fantasy novel?

  1. An illustration for each chapter, from a scene within? 
  2. Or an assorted of character sketches, monsters, objects, cities, etc?

Pictures are time, time is money! We can’t go too crazy or we may as well just make a graphic novel!

Your thoughts are highly appreciated!

Friday the 22nd – the day of reckoning.

And just like a B’Astian creeps from the Engulfing Forest – so does Exhumation emerge from pre-order.

Tomorrow – Friday the 22nd of September – marks the day the public gets full access to the book.

Brutal book reviewers, hungry and bored readers, hateful cynics – arm yourself with a copy of the book and bite into the meaty fantasy that is the Exhumation – the 1st book in the Epics of Existentia series.

You can sink your teeth in earlier, by downloading yourself a copy of the glossary for Exhumation – a lengthy text that will be useful to have on hand while reading the main text. The glossary is extracted from the book itself – so no surprises there. Page link is below.
