Savage Realms Monthly issue 19 with my story The Dark Priestdom reviewed

I was really pleased to read this review on a site I'm not familiar with, Harbinger of D.O.O.M. 

Of my story, the reviewer had this to say: 

"Next up is David A. Riley’s “The Dark Priestdom” and this one alone is worth the price of admission! It’s the longest of the three tales, running over an hour, but it’s captivating from beginning to end. It tells the tale of a storyteller who gets caught up in a con and winds up being accused of kidnapping a princess. He’ll have help from a Northman to rescue the princess, but the path will be fraught with peril."

Lucilla - a novella

Sometime in the near future Parallel Universe Publications will be publishing my novella Lucilla, which was serialised last year in Bewildering Stories

It was just another standard day at the Women’s Refuge until the arrival of Lucilla. 

Then Miranda’s world was never the same again. 

Unaccountably influenced by what the girl needed, her job, her friendships, even freedom itself were of no importance. It was not until her niece’s life was at risk that Miranda knew she had to act. 

But what could she do against someone who had such a tight, insidious grip on her?

The cover artwork is by Jim Pitts. 

Pdfs of the book are available prior to publication for reviews.  

Please email for copies.

Audio versions of Savage Realms Monthly

Issue 19
Ever innovative, Savage Realms Monthly has begun to turn their earlier issues into audiobooks. Yesterday I was given the opportunity by the highly talented Robert Lovely to listen to his version of my story The Dark Priestdom, which appeared in issue 19. Not yet available to the general public as an audiobook, I was massively impressed by how he brought my story to life - so well, in fact, it was as if I was listening to something written by someone else!
I definitely look forward to when issue 19 is available to buy.
In the meantime these are what are available so far: amazon audiobooks
