For anyone interested I just did an interview for manybooks.net. I talk about the Deathsworn Arc and some of my other projects! You can check it out here:- https://manybooks.net/featured-authors/martyn-stanley-epic-fantasy-adventure-featuring-dragons
It’s been a long time coming, but it’s here and readers so far have loved it! It’s only a novella, but I think it’s possibly the best addition to the ‘Deathsworn Arc’ so far!

The Deathsworn Arc has been available as a paperback for a long time now. For the first time though, it’s now on the shelves in a small, independent bookshop and coffee lounge.
Where? The Last Dragon Slayer and The Verkreath Horror are now on sale at the Nantwich Bookshop and Coffee Lounge.
They are a small independent bookshop in the heart of Cheshire, which offers regular author events and more.
You can follow them on Facebook here:-

Support The Nantwich, Local Independent Bookshop
46 High Street, Nantwich, Cheshire, CW5 5AS, UK. Tel: 01270611665.
To complement our existing bricks and mortar store,
we’ve got ourselves a complete online store as well.
On a side note, the proprietors: Steve and Denise are both lovely and this is probably the nicest place to stop for a coffee in Nantwich.
It has come to my attention that a local secondary school now has my book in the Library! I am not responsible for this, I’m not quite sure how it happened, but I am quite stoked about it. Though also a little bit worried about it. I really had 14+ in mind when I wrote the series. It has some mature themes in it. However, on balance, I think it’s pretty awesome that a school has my book in their Library!

If you’ve read and enjoyed my first, free fantasy book – why not buy me a coffee?
I’d appreciate it almost as much as a nice positive review! 😉
I stumbled upon this article advocating certain books for writers to read:-
I do think it’s important for writers to read, but I’ve never been sure about books which coach writing.
These are the books the author advocates:-
Self-Editing for Fiction Writers by Renni Browne and Dave King
Zen in the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury
On Writing by Stephen King
Write. Publish. Repeat. by Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant
Indie Writer Survival Guide by Susan Kaye Quinn
Story Genius by Lisa Cron
Steering the Craft by Ursula K. LeGuin
The Writer’s Journey by Christopher Vogler
The Creative Tarot by Jessica Crispin
Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon
They all sound useful resources for writers. I OWN Stephen Kings book On Writing, but I never got around to reading it. Maybe I should!
Deathsworn Arc 4 is getting consistently VERY strong ratings on Goodreads. It’s a more complex and less linear book than the previous three. Book 5 takes this trend even further, separating the characters and telling more stories, then weaving the stories together. I recently wrote a blog post on the progress I’m making with it here:-
Do sign up to the newsletter! I am definitely writing the subscriber exclusive Vashni story and it will only be available through the newsletter. I need to finish Deathsworn Arc 5: The Temple of the Mad God, but the subscriber exclusive is my next priority after that!
