I’ve been receiving a lot of questions lately about writing, The Mukhtaar Chronicles, music, dogs, books…you name it. And they’ve been coming at me from about 10 different directions all at once. Well, I’ve finally decided to embrace the fact that I live on Facebook most of the time. Yes, I still respond on Twitter, and I always participate in discussions that take place in the comments section here at the blog. But I’m on Facebook ALL – OF – THE – TIME. It’s a sickness. You should feel sorry for me, really, now that I think about it. Anyway, I’m proud to announce the grand opening of The Mukhtaar Estate, a Facebook discussion group geared towards…well, it’s geared towards …

Necromancer Ascending Update

Nat Russo Necromancer, News, Process 4 Comments

“So, Nat, how about a Necromancer Ascending update?” That’s the current most-frequently-asked question, not only on social media and here at Erindor Press, but even from my colleagues at my day job! However, in order to actually give you that Necromancer Ascending update, I have to talk a little about process first. I’ve written several articles about my writing process over the last few years, and I’ve been interviewed a dozen times or so by people who are all interested in the same thing: What does the process of writing a novel look like? My answer? Controlled chaos.

Map of the Three Kingdoms

Nat Russo Art, Maps, Necromancer, World Creation 0 Comments

I was reminded this morning by a post on Twitter that I’ve yet to make a map of the Three Kingdoms widely available. The reason is I will be having an artist professionally render my hand-drawn scribblings in the near future, perhaps before (or around the time of) the publication of book 3, Necromancer Ascending. But why wait? So, here’s a rendering that I made a long time ago in Campaign Cartographer 3 (absolutely INCREDIBLE software!). My apologies to Campaign Cartographer 3. I’m like a toddler using Photoshop to draw stick figures. Oh, and you should be able to click on the image to enlargificate it. That’s not a word…but it should be. 😀 Books set in the Erindor universe: Necromancer …

I woke up to some amazing news this morning. In less than 24 hours since publication, Necromancer Falling has hit 3 Amazon bestseller lists in the UK, and two “Hot New Releases” lists overall!

In the US: #22 in Hot New Releases for Metaphysical Fantasy #35 in Hot New Releases for New Adult & College In the UK: #65 on the Metaphysical and Visionary Fantasy Bestsellers list (both “Books” and “Kindle Store”…which I don’t understand since there’s no paperback yet, but I’ll take it!) #72 on the Low Fantasy Bestsellers list. Thank you all so much!

Necromancer Awakening $0.99 Sale

Nat Russo Necromancer 0 Comments

Times are tough, and sometimes a book that costs $2.99 is just too far out of reach. As a former Pizza Hut employee and bingo ball caller, please believe me when I say I understand that completely. I’d like to help, at least for a short period of time, because I believe in this story, and I want as many people as possible to experience it! I’m happy to announce that Necromancer Awakening is on sale now for $0.99 on Amazon. I’ll leave that price up until sometime tomorrow night (Monday night). At that point, the price change will be in Amazon’s hands, and anywhere from 1 hour to 12 hours later it will return to its regular price of …

Necromancer Awakening Appears On 4th Bestseller List

Nat Russo Necromancer, News, Publishing 2 Comments

I just received amazing news from a friend! Necromancer Awakening has entered a 4th Amazon bestseller list (Sword & Sorcery Fantasy)!     As you can see from the images, Necromancer Awakening is currently #13 on the Sword & Sorcery Fantasy bestseller list, and is also #7 on that category’s “Hot New Releases” list! This is a profound honor that I cannot even comprehend right now. When I glanced at this bestseller list, I saw names like George R.R. Martin, Terry Goodkind, Morgan Rice, Margaret Weiss.   And somehow, Necromancer Awakening is ahead of them. These are names I’ve idolized. These are names I consider to be part of the pantheon of fantasy. Somehow, my name is appearing next to …
