If you are already, then congratulations on your excellent taste. There's also an opportunity to support Bane of Souls simply by clicking here and recommending the post I wrote nominating it.
Of course, if you wish to do that and also make a comment giving your honest view of the book I'd be especially grateful, but I know that most won't fancy faffing about signing up for a new discussion system (although it'd pretty quick, I discovered).
Damien Walter, of the Guardian, deserves great credit for his initiative. Self-published authors can easily get lost in the crowd and ideas such as Mr. Walter's really can help to increase a writer's profile.
As it's been a while (longer than I thought) an update on Altmortis is in order. The maps and cover are entirely done. The cover will be released when the book is, or maybe very shortly beforehand, and the maps will be out when I finish the final redraft but before publication.
In terms of writing, two small rewrites are needed for the start and a section later in the book. However, these are pretty minimal and I don't expect them to take ages, with luck. The redraft (chapter-by-chapter) is now up to Ch8 of 20, though there are some knottier things on a to-do list for when I finish up on Ch20 (typically matters that require multi-chapter changes).
At the moment the release date window of H1 2013 remains probable, huzzah!
So, please do click the link and recommend Bane of Souls, and I'll try to make sure the next update doesn't take quite so long.
