The first ever P.J.Berman newsletter!

Hello and welcome to the first ever P.J.Berman newsletter!

I will be sending out letters at least once a month from now on, and you can expect to find updates on my writing, as well as information on other aspects of the creation process of my new fantasy fiction saga, the Silrith series. The opening novel, Vengeance of Hope, is available now from Amazon in Kindle and paperback formats. If you want to have a look at my writing, there are samples from Vengeance of Hope on my website at and I will even be including short stories from the fantasy and historical fiction genres in future newsletters from time to time!

I will also be making these emails interactive as much as possible. I really want to hear from you all, so if you have a question or a message, then please do not hesitate to contact me via the website or my author Facebook page, which can be found at


A little more about me

The main reason I am beginning this newsletter is so that I can keep in contact with you, my much-valued readers, but first, let me tell you a little more about myself. I grew up in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England, and after a brief but enjoyable spell living in Plymouth, I have now settled in the rural surroundings of my adopted nation, Wales, a land of castles and legends. Perfect for a writer!

After a variety of jobs, I am now a full-time parent, looking after my ten-month-old daughter. Once I’ve finally got her to sleep, I spend my time writing. Ok, I also watch football or rugby from time to time, but mostly it's writing. Once I was bitten by the writing bug, it quickly became an obsession for me.


Vengeance of Hope

Vengeance of Hope has been my project for some time now, and I am very excited to see it out in the world. It’s pretty surreal, to be honest. Please do leave a review when you read it. Meanwhile, I am working hard on the latter stages of the development of the second instalment, King of the Republic, which is due out later this year.

So what is Vengeance of Hope about? Vengeance of Hope an action-packed military fantasy fiction novel that, along with its sequels, looks at what happens when a nation tears itself apart and falls into the grasp of a tyrant.

It focuses on three very different freedom fighters, following their very different approaches to saving their people. The first is Silrith, a benevolent Princess, usurped from her position, who will do anything to defend her family and her countrymen. The second is Ezrina, a vengeful rebel desperate for a new world order. Finally, there is Zethun, a career politician with ambitions of removing the monarchy altogether.

There is, of course, much more to the creation story of Vengeance of Hope, and to the inspirations behind it, but that is something for another newsletter. I wouldn’t want to tell you everything in one go and not have you coming back for more, would I?

Make sure you check out my next newsletter, which will be sent out at the end of February, where I will treat you to a short story, throwing you into the thick of the action in A Bloody Day at Marathon.

See you then!
