  1. Hey Jon….looks like your not the only one to use that picture for cover art…

    D’oh!
    I wonder how many other self published authors this will happen to? Either way I gottat say that picture is awesome! So regardless if others use it or not, I think it works well with your book.

    But another thing: You are going the route of the self published author thanks to the digital book revolution or whatever they are calling it. Did you ever think about paying an artist to come up with original art for one of your books? Not sure if that would be cost efficient though. Still, an attractive cover will get people’s attention faster, and fortunely for you, many of your covers so far have been attractive! :) And think of it this way, because you are self published, you yourself could actually have control over what the picture would be, unlike if you were going through a publishing company, in which you would have no say.

    And one final thought: I know digital books have been good to you, but do you, as Jonathan Moeller the man, not the author, prefer digital books to the codex? I prefer physical books myself, I like the feel of them. Everything is digital nowadays, and while I’m fine with alot of it, I’d prefer my books to be paperbound. It just seems right.

  2. I tried posting this once already but it did not go through, so here it goes again:

  3. Wow, im so glad i tried this book! Im just abut finished with this Demonsouled, and I just purchased the next two books they are waiting for me on my Nook! I would have gladly pain more for these books, kudos to you sir.

    1. Thanks for the kind words about the DEMONSOULED books!

      The next book in the series, SOUL OF DRAGONS, should be coming out in February.

  4. I picked this book up from Amazon, and had read book 2 by the end of the day. Book 3 was excellent as well. I can’t wait for the next book.

    Keep up the good work!

  5. I see you started to give your other series new covers as well…very cool looking picture!
    Unlike the Ghost series (the new covers just didn’t do it for me), I have to say this cover is both
    1)awesome
    and
    2)visually striking
    A very good combination!
    Will the rest of the DS series (minus Sorcery) get new covers now?

    1. Thanks!

      Maybe. I kind of like the covers for SOUL OF TYRANTS, SOUL OF SERPENTS, and SOUL OF DRAGONS, so I might not change them.

      1. I like the original covers too, don’t get me wrong! I’m not suggesting you change them, I just figured you would now that you changed the first.
        Did you not like the original cover for DS? I thought it fit really well, and I liked the painting.

  6. This is probably the wrong place to put this butI don’t know how else to contact you.
    I just started the book and so far so good, but I would like to know more about the series before going any deeper. From your site I was able to gatherr much information about the demonsouled world, all except it’s cosmology. I love mythology, and I always like to know the setup behind a fantasy world before I get into it. What is the cosmological setup behind the demonsouled world? It’s Gods, it’s creation myth, and the like.

    Like I said I want to read your other stuff too, mind telling me about those worlds too?
    Thanks

    1. Hi Seraph316,

      Basically, the cosmology of the DEMONSOULED books is fairly loose. The humans have their own gods, as do the Elderborn. However, there’s some crossover – groups of humans worship the Elderborn gods (specifically, the humans of the Old Kingdoms south of Mastaria in SOUL OF TYRANTS). Additionally, not all the worshipers of a group of gods agree on how to worship those gods or even if they exist at all. The western and eastern groups of the San-keth (the serpent people) have very sharp disagreements on the nature of their god. (This will be a major plot point in the sixth book, SOUL OF SKULLS.)

      I left it loose on purpose for two reasons. First, it reflects the diversity of real-world religion. Like, 90% of Christians will agree that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, but will disagree on what that means and what to do about it. Second, it provides an excellent driver of the plot. A group of people who worship the same set of gods but disagree on the nature of those gods provides a fertile field for conflict, which is ripe to be used in a story.

      Anyway, I hope that answers your question.

  7. Hi Jonathon,
    Fellow author here (horror) and new fan. Picked up this book a few days ago and read it last night. Had to read the whole thing right then. I enjoy buying self published material as I feel many great stories are passed over by the big boys. Quite often the self published eBooks are riddled with mistakes or bad grammar.

    Yours was not. I don’t think I have ever been so satisfied with a free eBook from a self published author. The story is well rounded, the dialog believable, and the characters well developed. I love your style and can’t wait to throw my book buying money at you.

    1. Thanks for the kind words about the book! I’m glad you liked it.

      I’ve had enjoyable experiences with self-published material myself. :)

  8. Hi Jonathon,
    I just finished reading Child of the Ghosts which was a great read and an exciting adventure. However, you need someone to proofread the copy since I noticed and marked at least three errors. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
    Carolyn

    1. Thanks! I’m glad you liked it.

      Alas, I’ve been over CHILD OF THE GHOSTS multiple times, I’ve had volunteers go over CHILD OF THE GHOSTS multiple times, and I’ve paid someone to go over it, and there are still typos. I fear it is a testament to the imperfectibility of humanity. :)

  9. Hay Jonathan I am a massive fan have just finished the demonsouled series and both frostborn, and now just starting the child of ghosts. Just to say I am a fantasy freak and like to write for fun myself and having read your books I find them encouragement for imagination. So keep up the artistry and I will keep a lookout for any new releases. You never know one day you might read one of mine. Lol, take care.

    1. Thanks for the kind words about the books! I’m glad you liked them.

      Good luck with the writing! It is, I admit, a lot of work, but it is very rewarding.

    1. I would very much like to. FROSTBORN and THE GHOSTS are filling up my schedule at the moment, but if I’m lucky I can get one in before the end of the year.

  10. Super love your work I have just about read all of your books minus the computer stuff!! Too old for that mess!

    I’m so glad you have the list order of the books my kindle does not put them in order for me. Now that I have read them all I am reading those background/companion type books and am lost in the order of those. Can you help an old lady out and put the order ;
