Interview with Michael R. Miller

Interview with Michael R. Miller

Hi everyone, Petrik from Novel Notions here. It’s been a while since I last shared an interview with author on this blog; lately, it seems like every interview I did has been on my YouTube channel. But for today, we have an interview Michael Miller, the author behind The Dragon’s Blade Trilogy, Battle Spire, and Ascendant visiting the blog. I chatted with Michael about his decision to revamp the cover art of his first trilogy, which is on sale right now, and also about the rise of quality in self-publishing, and more. Without further ado, here’s my interview with Michael R. Miller!

Hi everyone! Petrik from Novel Notions here.

Today, we’re here to bring you a beautiful cover reveal of Faith Lost, this is the third book in the Pandemonium Rising series by Michael Sliter. I’ve read and enjoyed the first two books + a novella in the series, Solace Lost, Wisdom Lost, and Valley of the Free. I personally think that this is one of the most underrated grimdark fantasy series right now. If you love character-driven grimdark fantasy series, and yet haven’t read this one, I highly recommend this series to you! Without further ado, here’s the cover reveal to Faith Lost!

Hi everyone! Petrik from Novel Notions here.

Today, I’m here to bring you an exciting and gorgeous cover reveal of Emberblade by Steven Kelliher. Some of you probably have known or read The Landkist Saga before, and you might be wondering when the next book in the series is coming out. Well, Monolith Books has acquired the rights to Steven Kelliher’s Landkist Saga, a series spanning five books so far, with two installments yet to be written. The deal involves republishing of all of the previously self-published titles (new title, new cover art, editing) as well as the production of audiobooks for each novel using Peter Kenny, narrator of the Witcher series! Without further ado, here’s the cover art to Emberblade!

Hi everyone! Petrik from Novel Notions here.

No long introduction from me; the title of this post is self-explanatory, and I’m sure it’s why you’re here. But for those of you who don’t know, John Gwynne is one of my top favorite authors, and I will ALWAYS recommend his books to every epic fantasy reader. The Banished Lands Saga (The Faithful and the Fallen quartet and Of Blood and Bone trilogy) by John Gwynne is one of my top three favorite completed series of all time; probably at the number one spot, actually. Today, I’m beyond honored and gratified to be given the extraordinary opportunity of doing an exclusive cover reveal for The Shadow of the Gods, the first book in The Bloodsworn Saga series—Gwynne’s first series outside of The Banished Lands. If you love epic fantasy with fantastic characterizations and phenomenal battle scenes, make sure to do yourself a favor and read ALL of Gwynne’s books. Without further ado, here’s the epic cover of The Shadow of the Gods!

Blog Tour: We Ride the Storm by Devin Madson

Blog Tour: We Ride the Storm by Devin Madson

Hi everyone! Petrik from Novel Notions here. We, the team at Novel Notions, are very thrilled and honored that we were asked by Orbit to participate in the blog tour for the We Ride the Storm, the first book in The Reborn Empire quartet, by Devin Madson.

I’ll keep this introduction brief, We Ride the Storm was one of my favorite self-published books, to have it picked up by Orbit—one of my favorite publisher—still gives me joy up to this day. With that in mind, on this blog tour I decided to re-post my review that I wrote two years ago when I finished reading We Ride the Storm—the self-published edition—for the first time. Once you’ve read this full-of-praises review, let it sink into your head that the traditionally published edition of We Ride the Storm is even more refined and polished.
