“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?

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! Thank you all so much for the overwhelming outpouring of support you’ve all shown. This is truly mindblowing!

Thank you all so much!
Still here. I promise. I’m currently doing “stuff and things” related to the upcoming release of Necromancer Falling. And playing a ton of EverQuest 2 because my Freeblood Swashbuckler is almost max level. Necromancer Falling has been one of the most challenging projects I’ve been a part of.

If any of you are going to be in the Austin, TX. area this weekend, October 17-18, stop by the Texas Book Festival and say hi! And please feel free to bring your copies of Necromancer Awakening for me to sign.
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 …
