New Essay Collection from Best-Selling Author D.A. Adams Now Available on Kindle!

Seventh Star Press is proud to announce a very special eBook release from best-selling author D.A. Adams, The Ramblings of D.A. Adams, available now on Kindle and soon on all other eBook formats.

The Kindle version is available for $2.99 and may be found here:

D.A. Adams is well-known for his popular fantasy series The Brotherhood of Dwarves. The Ramblings of D.A. Adams represents his first non-fiction release, a collection of essays and articles that introduce readers to the kind of person that D.A. Adams is. Included in this special title are a number of personal photographs gathered from his private collection.

So what are his “Ramblings” about in his own words? As D.A. Adams describes them:

“The following are various pieces I’ve written over the years on a diverse range of topics. Some are meant as humor, some as inspiration, some as diatribes against the absurdities of the human condition. All are intended as my attempts to make sense of this world and its paradoxes and pitfalls. The ideas and opinions expressed are based on my experiences and observations and very little else. Hope you enjoy them and find a nugget or two of wisdom that helps you get through your day.”

The Ramblings of D.A. Adams are a truthful, bold, and very personal expression by one of today’s rising voices in speculative fiction.

About D.A. Adams: D.A. Adams was born in Florida but was raised in East Tennessee. He received a Master of Arts in Writing from the University of Memphis in 1999 and has taught college English for over a decade. His first novel, The Brotherhood of Dwarves, was released in 2005 and has been described as a solid, honest work about camaraderie, bravery, and sacrifice, a very personal journey, more interested in the ways that a person is changed by life’s events than in epic battles and high magic. In 2008, the sequel, Red Sky at Dawn, was released to the exaltation that this novel thunders along, at times with dizzying speed. The action is visceral and imaginative without being gratuitous. Book three, The Fall of Dorkhun, came out in 2011, followed by book four, Between Dark and Light, in 2012.

In terms of writing style, Adams exhibits an effortless narrative voice and a masterful balance between richly detailed descriptions and tightly worded minimalism. The pacing of his stories is breathtaking, with relentless action and captivating plot twists that keep readers riveted page after page. But his true talent as a writer lies in character development. Readers find themselves empathizing with, fearing for, and cheering on the characters as they overcome their personal shortcomings and grow as fully rendered individuals.

Adams is also the father of two wonderful sons and, despite his professional accomplishments, maintains that they are his greatest achievement in life. He resides in East Tennessee.

D.A. Adams New Brotherhood of Dwarves Series Novel: Cover Reveal


For Immediate Release
December 14, 2012

Seventh Star Press is proud to reveal the new cover art from Bonnie Wasson for the highly-anticipated Between Dark and Light, D.A. Adams’ fourth book in the acclaimed Brotherhood of Dwarves Series.  The editor for the new fantasy novel was Philip Hopkins, who handled the editing duties for the previous title in the series, The Fall of Dorkhun.

Between Dark and Light continues the adventures of the dwarf Roskin, and the stakes have never been greater.  The Great Empire has surrounded the Kiredurks and are preparing to conquer the kingdom, but unknown to them, Kwarck, the mysterious hermit of the plains, has his own plan in action. To the east, he has summoned an elven army and charged Crushaw with leading them into battle. To the south, Roskin will gather an army from the fractured Ghaldeon lands. But to the west, an ancient and powerful evil stirs. The Great War is about to errupt, if Roskin can overcome the Dark One…

The character-driven fantasy series which begins with The Brotherhood of Dwarves, and was continued with Red Sky at Dawn and The Fall of Dorkhun, has seen a steady growth in its international readership, becoming one of the best-selling franchises at Seventh Star Press.  Between Dark and Light will be released in eBook, softcover, and limited hardcover editions.

All editions will include interior illustrations from the award-winning Bonnie Wasson, whose cover art for the first book in the series, The Brotherhood of Dwarves, won the Artist Choice Award for Best Warrior at the 2012 Dragon*Con Art Show.

The eBook version will be available on Kindle and Nook in the coming week, followed by the softcover edition.  A pre-order window for the 75 copy limited hardcover will be announced shortly.

A blog tour in support of Between Dark and Light will be taking place in February/March of 2013.
