Andy Peloquin asked me to let you folks know about his brand new book launch.
“Great,” I said. “Where do I swing the bottle of champagne?”
“Steve,” Andy said. “It’s a book launch. NOT a boat launch. You swing a bottle of champagne at a book and all you are going to wind up with are a handful of soggy pages.”
“I knew that,” I replied, noting to myself that I really ought to write a book around that title – “A Handful of Soggy Pages”.
Maybe call it a pulp novel.
All right, so enough with the jokes.
Let me tell you about the book first.
The book is called LAMENT OF THE FALLEN. It is Book 2 of THE LAST BUCELARII series.
I know that right now you are thinking to yourself, “Oh hell, now I have to go off and buy Book 1 of the series.”
Get it. It’s free – but only for the weekend, so grab it right now. Don’t fart around. Don’t read a single syllable more from this blog entry before you hit that link and that grab that free book. Tell Jeff Bezos I sent you.
Let me tell you a bit about LAMENT OF THE FALLEN.
The Last Bucelarii (Book 2): Lament of the Fallen
The Hunter of Voramis is no more.
Alone with the bloodthirsty voices in his head, fleeing the pain of loss, he has one objective: travel north to find Her, the mystery woman who plagues his dreams and haunts his memories.
When he stumbles upon a bandit attack, something within urges him to help. His actions set him at odds with the warrior priests commanded to hunt down the Bucelarii.
Left for dead, the Hunter must travel to Malandria to recover his stolen birthright. There, he is inexorably drawn into direct conflict with the Order of Midas, the faceless, nameless group of magicians that holds the city in a grip of terror. All while struggling to silence the ever-louder voice in his mind that drives him to kill.
From feared assassin to wretched outcast, the Hunter’s journey leads him to truths about his forgotten past and the Abiarazi he has pledged to hunt. His discoveries will shed light on who he really is…what he really is.
Fans of Joe Abercrombie, Brandon Sanderson, and Brent Weeks will love the Hunter…

All right – so will you enjoy these books?
Well, do you like Michael Moorcock? How about Karl Edward Wagner? I’m talking dark, moody, brutal and nasty, hungover with a really bad taste fur-balling in your mouth. Assassins and cursed blades and angst-ridden heroes, whupping ass all over the place. Think Game of Thrones, without scruples or manners.
If you’ve said yes to all of these questions then you REALLY ought to try this series out.
