Word Count Wednesday - Audiobook Release for Tales Volume II!

Greetings Einherjar!


     So, the big news on this Word Count Wednesday is not about a word count at all - it's about today's release of Tales From Midhgardhur, Volume II on audiobook by Audible! As of today you can listen to the continuing adventures in the world of Midhgardhur, narrated by the amazing baritone voice talent of Gary Miller-Youst! You can find the audiobook at Audible or on iTunes if you prefer!

     I also want to keep you posted on other WIPs (works in progress) that are ongoing, but those have not really budged in the last week due to the four wonderful sons I am raising and all their appointments!:

Current Works in Progress:
Ormsbani (novel) - 71,008 words
Asa Oathkeeper Among The Giants (novel) - 50,516 words

Finally, if you enjoy my work, please join the official fan club on Facebook, the Einherjar of Midhgardhur!



Happy Reading - and Happy Listening! Skál!

Word Count Wednesday - Dragonslayers, Giants, Werewolves, and More!

Hello everyone,


     It has been a while since I have kept up with Word Count Wednesday, but my intention is to keep you all up to date with the latest progress on my work, so here I am, back again!

     First of all, Tales From Midhgardhur on Channillo has a January story posted, entitled "Wolfsbane," which clocks in at about 3676 words. It marks the return of Ljufvina, the apprentice daudha-gydhja (priestess of death) who appeared briefly in "Angels of Death". The story mixes some traditional Norse folklore, werewolf legends, Little Red Riding Hood, and some very unique elements to make a story of which I am quite proud. I hope you enjoy it! It's a little too early to talk about the February offering yet - more information coming soon!

    Secondly, the audiobook edition of Tales From Midhgardhur, Volume II is nearly complete. Gary Miller-Youst, the producer, has submitted the final audio files, and I reviewed and approved them. Now the files are being checked by ACX quality control for the sound engineering and such, and soon after that, the audiobook should be available for sale on Audible and then iTunes! The paperback and Kindle editions are available from Amazon. Currently, Tales From Midhgardhur, Volume I is available from Audible and iTunes!

     Thirdly, I also want to keep you posted on other WIPs (works in progress) that are ongoing:

Current Works in Progress:
Ormsbani (novel) - 71,008 words
Asa Oathkeeper Among The Giants (novel) - 50,516 words

Finally, if you enjoy my work, please join the official fan club on Facebook, the Einherjar of Midhgardhur!

Happy Reading - and Happy Listening! Skál!

Audiobook of Tales From Midhgardhur, Volume II is almost complete!

Hello everyone,


     I am happy to announce that the audiobook edition of Tales From Midhgardhur, Volume II - which will be available from Audible and iTunes - is almost complete! The producer and narrator, Gary Miller-Youst, has been hard at work, and I have now listened to nine of the ten chapters and approved them. I love Miller-Youst's deep baritone voice and his narrative style, and I think you will too! All that remains is for him to finish recording "The Tale of Ingjaldur the Mad," and the book will be ready for ACX to begin the rigorous process of quality control for the sound engineering. So I estimate that the audiobook should be available by sometime in March at the latest!

Happy Reading! Happy Listening! Skál!

Check Out "Wolfsbane" on "Tales From Midhgardhur" on Channillo!

Hello everyone,


     I just wanted to announce that "Wolfsbane" is now live at Tales From Midhgardhur - check it out! This story marks the return of Ljufvina, the daudha-gydhja ("death-priestess")/Angel of Death who was apprenticed to Valgerdhur in the story "Angels of Death" - I promised that I would return to this character's story, and you get a lot more of that in "Wolfsbane"!

Happy Reading! Skál!

"Wolfsbane" Posting to Tales From Midhgardhur on Channillo on Monday 1/29/18

Hello everyone,



     "Wolfsbane," the next installment in my Channillo series Tales From Midhgardhur, will be posting on Monday, 1/29/18. I had intended for it to be posted by 1/15 at the latest, but this one was a bit tricky, and I wanted to get it right, so it took a little longer. It features a minor character returning: the daudh-gydhja ("death priestess," "Angel of Death") Ljufvina, the young apprentice of Valgerdhur who appeared in "Angels of Death" (posted on Channillo in April of 2017, also appearing in the collection Tales From Midhgardhur, Volume II). Ljufvina has existed as a character in my head for a while, since long before I came up with Valgerdhur for "Angels of Death," but I also knew I wasn't ready to tell her story until now. I described the story when I began working on it as "a Norse death priestess meets with Little Red Riding Hood and some traditional werewolf folktales, combined with some odd herb lore (did you know the Norse called wolfsbane Thorshjalmr, or 'Thor's helm'?) and some unique twists of my own." Check it out. I think you'll enjoy it!

Happy Reading! Skál!

Einherjar of Midhgardhur - the official fan club for Colin Anders Brodd and Midhgardhur Books!

Hello everyone,



I just wanted to announce the creation of an official fan club for Midhgardhur Books! For the moment it is set up on Facebook, as a community group linked to my Facebook Author Page! The fan club is known as the Einherjar of Midhgardhur, named after the Einherjar of Norse Mythology. The name means something like "lone warriors," and in mythology they are the honored dead chosen by the Valkyjur to live forever in Valholl! It is my intention to eventually build this fan club with opportunities to work as a Street Team, to get exclusive short stories and previews of new releases, and to win special prizes, but at the moment it is purely a social group! Please join up if you're a fan of Colin Anders Brodd and Midhgardhur Books!
