Book 2 Progress

Not Lu here: I’ve been stalking Justan’s writing progress since he hasn’t given us a recent update. He’s working on the second book in the Common Among Gods series (it’s the sequel to Death’s Merchant). So far he’s written about 50,000 words and has 9 chapters either complete or in progress. If we compare it to Death’s Merchant, which was about 408,000 words it looks like Justan is about 1/8th of the way finished with book 2. About 30,000 of those words were written in the past two weeks so he’s moving along at a pretty fast clip.

Here he is writing on his phone (note the blankie and sipper cup he keeps around for support).


Death’s Merchant Cover

Hey everybody, I’m excited to finally reveal the book cover for my first book, Death’s Merchant. Special thanks to my designer, Neil Robinson. You can see more of his work at

Death’s Merchant is a book about a war between the gods. They’re fighting over the ascension of a god of Death. Mortals become unwitting pawns it the gods’ war. The book has a dark concept that I’ve written in a light hearted way. If you want to see what I mean, start by reading these introductory short stories to Death’s Merchant.

Fall of the Mother’s Temple

Jem’s Revenge

Wilt’s Justice

Null Started a War

Of course, you can get a copy of the book here or read it on Kindle Unlimited for FREE.
