The Ravencrest Chronicles Omnibus and Revised Editions

Today is a landmark moment for myself, as the very first works I published as an independent author are being re-released. Each of The Ravencrest Chronicles books are being presented by Kyanite Publishing in an all-new revised edition in eBook format and collected in an omnibus available as eBook, paperback, or premium hardcover special edition.

The Ravencrest Chronicles books by B K Bass

This is truly a revised edition, as the books underwent more than a simple proofreader’s edit before being re-released. I reworked significant portions of the prose – especially in Seahaven – to apply advances in my own writing skills with the purpose of bringing the city of Seahaven even more to life. The books also went through an intensive copy-editing process by the editors at Kyanite Publishing. The end result is a version of these books that is more polished and that more clearly represents the original vision of The Ravencrest Chronicles.

Without further ado, I proudly present The Ravencrest Chronicles, Wave One!

Seahaven

Seahaven by B K Bass

Gareth Vann is an accomplished thief in the city of Seahaven. He is mostly concerned with coin and drink, but does have an altruistic streak. He never intended to be a hero, though, until an encounter with vampires, dreaded undead creatures of the night. Now, he finds himself trapped in the middle of a conspiracy that reaches all the way to the highest levels of nobility and must reluctantly hunt the creatures of the night the only way he knows how: from the shadows.

The Hunter’s Apprentice

The Hunters Apprentice by B K Bass

Miles is a young orphan growing up in Seahaven. The coastal city has always been his home, and the streets have always been where he laid his head. Now, he is learning the shadow craft from his mentor, Gareth. Life seems to be looking up for Miles until he hears news of grave danger in the city. Together, Miles and Gareth must uncover the secrets behind a most sinister plot. Miles discovers that there are deadlier things awaiting in the shadows than he could have imagined, and with Gareth’s help he must learn to hunt them down.

The Giant and the Fishes

The Giant and the Fishes by B K Bass

Fergus always dreamed of setting sail out on the sea, free of the confines of the city of Seahaven. He never thought he would actually get the chance until tragedy befalls his family. Suddenly, he is thrust into a world of violence, adventure, and coin! Fergus lives the life he always wanted as a pirate, but he is haunted by his past. As the shadows behind him grow ever darker, the challenges ahead muster like a furious storm on the sea. Will he be consumed by his own mind, or will he finally find the atonement for which he strives?

Night Shift – Coming This Friday

Upcoming Release – Friday October 12, 2018

His first title with Kyanite Publishing LLC, “Night Shift,” is a science fiction story about a detective in the fictional city of New Angeles. Readers familiar with the science fiction subgenre called “cyberpunk” will appreciate the crime-ridden, dystopian setting. “Night Shift” was originally a serialized story Mr. Bass released online. He’s especially fond of serials and novellas that can be collected into longer works because they’re sized for today’s busy audience.


Night shift is available directly from Kyanite Publishing, or on Amazon, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble.

More information about Night Shift can be found at bkbass.com and Goodreads.


Night Shift - BK Bass - small

In New Angeles, crime is part of the daily business of running the city. But when a routine murder investigation starts turning up more questions than answers, homicide detective Harold Peterson finds himself unraveling a decades-old conspiracy that leads him to the highest echelons of the mob and the city government. As various threads start to come together, the big picture is revealed to be more than he ever bargained for. As bullets start to fly from both directions, the only thing Harold knows for sure is that he isn’t being paid enough to deal with this.

SciFi Contest Win!

I recently entered two flash fiction pieces for a contest with Lore Publication.  Today, it was announced that my science fiction entry, A Diamond Among the Rough, was chosen as the winner for that category!

A Diamond Among the Rough is a flash fiction story (less than 1,000 words) in the cyberpunk sub-genre of science fiction.  It is a simple story focused more on immersion into the setting than anything, but sets up the potential for possible sequels.  I would love to see this become a serial fiction project.

Lore will be publishing the story on their Medium site soon.  Stay connected for updates!
