The Maleficent Seven published

 It's Release Day




I could not be happier that The Maleficent Seven is out today! All that blood, sweat and Writer's Tears did not go to waste. It's been a wild ride, writing such a bombastic thrill-ride of a book with all these bigger than life characters who hate each other.

I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.

Locus Reviews The Maleficent Seven

 Locus Magazine have reviewed The Maleficent Seven

Spoiler: they loved it. "Coarse, crude, bloody, brutal, and utterly over-the-top...A go-big-or-go-home delight."

The Maleficent Seven

 The news is out! My new book, The Maleficent Seven, will be published next year by Angry Robot.

https://www.thebookseller.com/news/johnston-returns-angry-robot-third-title-1220963 

The synopsis:

Black Herran was a dread demonologist, and the most ruthless general in Essoran. She assembled the six most fearsome warriors to captain her armies: a necromancer, a vampire lord, a demigod, an orcish warleader, a pirate queen and a twisted alchemist. Together they brought the whole continent to its knees... Until the day she abandoned her army, on the eve of total victory.

Forty years later, she must bring her former captains back together for one final stand, in the small town of Tarnbrooke: the last bastion against a fanatical new enemy tearing through the land, intent on finishing the job Black Herran started years before.

The Butcher Queen

Just for some fun, SPFBO judge Timy has rounded up a bunch of authors (no idea who!) to write a free serialized story.

Read Part 1 of 'The Butcher Queen', as I kick off this season of To Be Continued...

I started off this story, but other authors will carry it on and finish it - I have no idea how this story will end, but I can't wait to find out!

God of Broken Things translated into Hungarian

Coming on February 18th from Főnix Könyvműhely - the Hungarian translation of God of Broken Things.

It's always incredibly cool to see my writing published in other languages, though it feels deeply odd I can't read it.
