“A brilliantly brutal debut from an exciting new voice in dark fantasy. Highly recommended!”—Michael R. Fletcher, author of Swarm and Steel and Beyond Redemption
“Intriguing, fast-paced, and grimly fiendish. . . . Godblind sweeps you up and doesn’t let you go.”—Edward Cox, author of The Relic Guild trilogy
“A fierce, bold, and epic novel, Stephens’s debut will leave blood on your hands, dirt beneath your nails, and the stench of battle clinging to your sweaty flesh. For fans of dark fantasy, this one comes highly recommended!”—Ronald Malfi, author of The Night Parade
My first novel, Godblind, is due out from Harper Voyager UK in spring 2017. Skyhorse Publishing in North America has also confirmed the trilogy will be published by them for the US and Canada in mid-July. It will also be published by Bragelonne in France in autumn 2017 and by Blanvalet in Germany in spring 2018. The Netherlands and Poland have also acquired the first of the trilogy, with publication dates to be confirmed.
GODBLIND IS NOW AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER
The sequels, the titles of which are top secret for now and so are currently known as books 2 and 3, are pencilled in for 2018 and 2019.
As a member of Birmingham Writers’ Group, we’re hoping to get an anthology of short stories, poems and other media published some time in 2017/18 on the theme of Alternative Birmingham – the city but other. More on that when there’s more to tell.
After that, who knows? World domination, awards, movie adaptations… or more likely a nice cup of tea and a long nap.
