I'm Phil Tucker, an indie author who writes dark heroic fantasy. I've written The Chronicles of the Black GateThe Godsblood Trilogy, and will soon be publishing the LitRPG trilogy Euphoria Online. 

The success of The Chronicles of the Black Gate caught me by surprise. I've been writing since 2011, but The Path of Flames in 2016 was my first hit, and based on its success and that of the sequels I was able to leave my day job and devote myself to writing full time. Path of Flames went on to place 2nd in the Self-Publishing Fantasy Blog-Off competition, received various inquiries from traditional publishing houses, and was nominated by r/Fantasy as a Stabby Award finalist as well as being spotlighted by as their 2016 Indie Spotlight.

To say I was taken aback by the reception is to put it mildly.

Since then, consistency and professionalism have been my two guiding lights as an indie author. I seek to publish frequently but to maintain the highest quality, and I believe my upcoming Euphoria Online trilogy will exemplify those goals. The audio rights have already been purchased by, who has hired Vikas Adam to narrate, and I raised almost $20,000 via Kickstarter to fund the release of the trilogy in hardcover as well as include interior art. 

Along this journey I've received emails from readers asking how they can support my writing in other ways, and toward that end I've created this Patreon. Being a fantasy author is my life dream, and with your backing I'm making it a reality.

Thank you.
