YESSS GOD I CAN"T WAIT XD you are awesome William!!
Very nice. Now I get to do another late night of reading and suffer the next day at work!
Is the 'Black' in black coven referring to the color or Daniels name? If I was going to have my own coven, I'd name it after myself as well.
In the book cerise refers to herself as cerise Black so it's the name
possibly dual meanings, possible coincidence. Reference the chapter where the coven is established. Cerise calls for it to become a "black coven" and her hope that it would be the last of the black covens. This possibly means that this coven is differentiated from others in that its purpose is to kill their enemies.
Let's all do the Happy Dance! *Dances*
You kept my interest with your updates and teasers, unlike some authors who are silent for months. Quite refreshing, bravo to you sir. Bravo.
ill buy it and read it within moments of finding it on amazon, hope to read it soon.
Best Author EVER!
Can't wait. Thanks for getting it done so fast.
oh happy day! got to read the new dahners book and get news this is coming out this week.
I live waking up to good news in the morning. And this is Awesome!!!
And so begins my every half hour check on amazon for the book...
Think you can toss us another chapter teaser?:)
Probably makes no sense this close to kicking the finished product out the door. If it had taken longer for some reason we might have seen another.
It actually makes no sense not to. He has only released about a chapter and a half of teasers out of a 24 chapter book. Amazon will have at least that much as part of the free sample you can download, so it's not as if he's giving away anything for free. Plus, it shows us love!

> Amazon will have at least that much as part of the free sample > you can download, so it's not as if he's giving away anything for > free.That's exactly why it makes no sense. The purpose of teasers is to either get readers interested in the book or keep them interested in it.We (here) are already interested. Those new to the series will be able to look into the book directly at Amazon to see whether it is their cup of tea or not in less than a week.The only reason to put another Teaser out _this_ late in the game would be people who:- bothered to look up the author's blog- read 7500 words of the book spread over three different posts- are still on the fence on whether to buy.- would rather say "Well i guess not." than wait five days andclick on 'inside the book' to read more than another half-chapterto make up their minds.Lets face it the number of folks who fall into that sub-category will be negligible going none.> Plus, it shows us love!Ain't no love in this world, hoss, only cold cash interests.Seriously though, a week or two ago another teaser would have been welcome, but now I'd rather he spend the time it would take to put one up, even if it's just a minute, finishing his final polish instead.
Can you open a pre-order page so we can just buy it now and have it as soon as it's released?
That would just delay things. The pre-order requires a copy of the book 10 days prior to release. Release is in less than 10 days.
I'm just wondering if it takes a few hours after upload for a book to show up on Amazon US what "a lot longer" means for the international Amazon sites. A few more hours? A day? A week? Several weeks?
Hey Grimmelhausen,from you name I infer you are german.You know you can switch your accounts to other Amazon sites (not sure if its all), but you can do it from the German one buy something and back relativly fast if you know how. What you need is a credit card though :) Go to you Account -> Digital Content/Manage Content and Devices -> Settings -> Country Settings/Change -> Click "here" http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/hn51-s-04a7.jpg -> Click "Learn about transfering your Kindle account to Amazon.com" -> Confrim http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/hn51-r-be21.jpgAnd here you go. To switch back, use the same way, its just says "Learn about transfering your Kindle account to Amazon.de"
Thanks for the tip Jirun, it's appreciated. However i probably won't need a workaround after all.I have made a crosscheck for various other authors' books that are in my kindle library and both Amazon (US) and Amazon (Germany) show the same days as publication date. If there's a delay I' don't think it'll be more than a few hours after you guys(*). We'll see i guess._____________________* = Amazon Japan might be another story. An acquaintance of mine who lives over there always complains about the glacier-like sluggishness of that particular tentacle of the Beast of Bezos when it comes to delivering fresh imported reading material for him.
No sweat, actually I am also German. XD I did need this to get to books that were not transfered in the past. But as you noticed, most of the books that come out recently, do pop up in the DE store almost at the same time.Another book came out today, and it did take roughly 12 hours to transfer from Amazon US to Amazon DE.
I want it now..
So everyone already praised you lol so I'm not going to be a broken record I just wanna know when the release date I Really want to read ASAP....due to the fact you are an amazing author but also a smart business man it was very kind of you to put three teasers to get readers like more interested in your sequel.
Excellent. Between this and the Avengers movie, I know where my weekend is going.
Okay this maybe a stupid question, but in the US does 'end of the week' mean friday or sunday? I can see it go either way though on my side of the pond it would typically mean the former (i.e. end of the work week).
I interpret it as by Saturday.
Guess we'll see tomorrow. ( Oh f@#k, now i have that bloody song stuck in my head: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yop62wQH498&feature=player_detailpage#t=13 )
In business/celebration event (We will have drinks now that the week is done) - is Friday afternoon. For a due date, it can mean 5pm Friday or to some people before 8am Monday.In casual communication, it typically means Friday / Saturday, but a few will include Sunday.
Although I know the book is supposed to come out only at the end of the week I have not been able to stop myself from checking amazon 3 times a day! Why is it still thursday!!
> Why is it still thursday!!Because God hates you/us. (c:
Won't the author say that the upload to Amazon is complete? Until then it seems pointless to check Amazon.
Logic never did deter me from engaging in compulsive habits.
If it did the gambling dens of the world would be empty.
Yup I completely agree I'm keep on searching black coven into amazon of course with no luck but still hoping it will come out early.
not sure ... if i can ... hold myself back... pondering on building a time machine to go forward in time to get me a copy of this book....
Lol if it works dude take me with you
Nah, i say we chip together for a bio lab to flash-grow an army of William clones. Once those have matured and start toiling in our secret underground sweatshop the writing and editing time per book should drop dramatically.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00WZNZ3LG/ref=cm_cd_asin_lnkJust bought it. enjoy! and Thank you!
I just bought it!!! Had to switch my account from India to US. Thanks for the tip Jirun! I owe you a beer.
It's making it to the Amazon sties outside the US. Just bought it on Amazon Germany. Happy reading everybody!
omg its like i travelled in time and now can travel back in time to give myself the book!
I got darn lucky, just read Fimbulwinter for the first time on monday. Nice to get a sequel this quick.
Finished Black Coven. Like it. Will you be doing a post for errors we find like you did for Fimbulwinter?
I just looked at amazon, and Black coven is ranked 4th in epic fantasy. Right behind George RR Martin.Loved black coven BTW...So Ummm...When do you think book 3 will be released???Come on you know that your thinking it to, I just asked.
It was a good read. Not constructed as well as the first book, but still a very good read.
So.... How about those book 3 teasers?Very good book though, I really enjoyed it. I do have to say that I was disappointed with Avilla as a character in this one. In Fimbulwinter I really enjoyed what I considered to be the three main characters, and while Daniel and Cerise were still great in this, Avilla seemed to fall a bit flat. Still a 5/5 from me on the amazon reviews though.
Read it and re read it. As good as i had expected but feel could had been even better. I only request that you release the third bok soon (i know full well how absurd my request is for a writer) , cant wait for the sequel.Thanks for the awesome work william
thanks for the book. I loved it. Can't wait for book 3. Would like to see daniel use his magic on animal. Like use it on sheep to make its wool grow faster or bigger pigs. Offensive magic for Elin could be high pressure water cutter.
Very enjoyable although it feels a little rushed. There's at least a typo (?) in chapter 10 that said Vinland instead of Varmland (although I like Vinland than Varmland). Is there any map that could clarify Daniel's strategic position, like maybe that Kazolin comparable with Hamburg in our world? There's tons of questions (Why the Aesir still not popping around Daniel, What happened to the Vanir pantheon),speculations (Interaction between nations/kingdoms and their pantheon, Magic system), and potential in these series, I hope Daniel Black series enjoy success and continuous release.
Bit of a technical issue with the bullets in that they don't work like that. Lead is soft but very dense. The reason lead is used in bullets is because it has a lot of mass per volume which increases the kinetic energy load ( Ek=1/2mv^2 ) and it is more abundant than gold, iridium, and the few other metals denser. Bullets are jacketed in steel because that prevents the lead from deforming in flight and under the high acceleration of the chamber and barrel of a firearm. Simply put: wrapping an iron core in lead is bad and any tests would prove that.
I have enjoyed both books in the series.I am looking forward to the next book.I think the concept, world construction, and characters are strong enough to stand on their own. I find the graphic sex to be an unnecessary distraction. I just skip over it.
I just discovered the series last week, they are the first books since the Harry Potter series that I stayed up all night reading because I just couldn't put them down. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
Any news on book 4? Great series. Thank you.
Book 4 release date
See the latest post -- it's summer. Aim for August 31, hope for earlier.
So will audible or any other audiobook Company be releasing the Daniel Black books 2-4? I am rather ticked that only book one is available.
Just finished books 1-3 and am really looking forward to how he manages to kill a goddess. When will book 4 be due?
