SC Gowland – author of The Souls’ Abyss

My first memory is of holding a light sabre. I misspent much of my youth playing video-games and daydreaming that I was a Jedi or Buck Rogers. Always an enormous fan of fantasy novels, my favourite authors include Joe Abercrombie, George RR Martin and David Gemmell. 

I live by the sea with my family, still daydreaming about imaginary worlds, doing limited housework, and reading far less than I should.

Hello and welcome to my website.

I am SC Gowland, an international selling author and semi-finalist of the Self Publishing Fantasy Blog Off (SPFBO6).  THE DARK CROWN is my debut novel, and COVEN OF SHADOWS is book two of the THE SOULS’ ABYSS trilogy. Book three – DARKNESS FALLS is due out on 14th October 2021.

Reviews of The Dark Crown:

“Well written, engaging characters and I was definitely left wanting to read the next book.”

“Right away I felt that this was going to be ‘me’ kind of book since it features a darker world juxtaposed by flawed, but well-meaning characters.”

“This ending will leave you clambering to find out what happens next “

Reviews of the Coven of Shadows:

“A fantastic read, full of snappy dialogue and emotional resonance.”

“Coven of Shadows is a great book and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
