Yep. As is often the case with my books from Pyr, False Covenant appears to have become available earlier than anticipated. I don’t know if it’s actually on shelves, but it’s now available as an order (as opposed to pre-order) from sites like Amazon. :-D

I’m really happy with how this one came out, and I hope you guys like it half as much as I think you will.

It’s not up yet in e-book format, but I can assure you that it will be in the near future. More on that as soon as I know something.

There’s this: Upcoming Marvel Universe MMO, free to play.

Why am I mentioning this? Well, in addition to just being cool, it also represents my first foray into computer game dialogue writing. :-D

Yep. Thanks to Andy Collins at Gazillion Studios, I was one of the team selected to provide some of the dialogue for many of the characters.

I can’t go into too much detail, since I can only talk about characters that have been publicly revealed as appearing in the game. But I can say that I did a portion of the dialogue for the Black Widow, and the majority of the non-mission-specific dialogue for…

Well, any of you who know me know there’s one major Marvel character with whom I share a certain affinity for being a wise-ass, and Andy was kind enough to let me tackle him. Yep, just your friendly neighborhood Someone-or-Other. :-D

Hey, guys. Just a quick reminder… Tomorrow. 6:00 pm. Dragon’s Lair, Austin location. Keith Baker and me, together again for the first time (or however that goes).

Be there or, uh, be elsewhere. But there would be better. Really.

Hrm. I seem to have mis-typed the date on my prior entry. Should be the 10th, not 20th; I’m not typing to you from the future, at least not yet.

So, “Hell or High Water,” my first fictional foray into Golarion, setting for the Pathfinder RPG, is now complete. Clicking here will take you to a page with all four parts. Had a real blast writing this, and I’m pretty sure this isn’t the last time you’ll see me visiting this particular setting or property. :-)

Speaking of settings and properties, I’ve just begun yet another tie-in novel, for a property that I cannot yet reveal. I think most of you will get a kick out of it, but if you’re not a tie-in fan, don’t worry. The fact that I happen to be doing a number of tie-in projects in a row should in no way be taken to mean that I’m stepping away from my original stuff. Got a lot of stuff brewing there, too.

If you’re in or near Austin, don’t forget that next Wednesday (the 23rd), Keith Baker and I will be doing a joint signing at Dragon’s Lair. Starts around 6:00 PM; hope to see some of you there.

Hey, guys. Happy early Mother’s Day to all the moms reading this. :-)

Two things for you today. First, part three of “Hell or High Water,” my Pathfinder serial fiction, is now up on the Paizo site. Take a look, let me know what you think, and come back next Wednesday for the final installment. (Again, link takes you to part one; just scroll down to get to three.)

Second, I’ve been given permission to mention another piece of short fiction on which I’m currently working. It’s a tie-in piece, for the official magazine of the property in question. I can’t go into a lot of detail, but here’s a hint:

It takes place a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… :mrgreen:

(And if you don’t have the theme stuck in your head now, just from reading that, I don’t know you at all.) ;-)

As I said, it’s a really short story, but I’m absolutely thrilled to have been invited to play in that particular sandbox, even if only a little. More about the story–including which issue of Insider it’s supposed to appear in–to come.

The second chapter of “Hell or High Water,” my four-part serial story set in the world of the Pathfinder RPG, is now up on the Paizo web site. Also includes one of the coolest pieces of lizardman art I’ve yet seen. :-D

You can find chapters one and two here. Scroll down for part two.

Well, with news of the Darksiders II videogame being delayed a few months, I suppose this news shouldn’t have surprised me. Darksiders: the Abomination Vault is being pushed back to a late July release.

Yeah, I’m disappointed, too. But I hope you guys will find it to have been worth the wait.

(Obviously, this means the novel will not be available at the Dragon’s Lair signing I mentioned earlier. But plenty of my other books should be.)

Hey, guys. Been a while since my last update.

The first part of my four-part serial “Hell or High Water” is now up on the Paizo web site. Set in Golarion–the primary setting of the Pathfinder RPG–”Hell or “High Water” takes place in the jungles of Mwangi and the flooded reaches of the Sodden Lands. Hope you guys like what I’ve done with the place. :-)

Check back in a week for part two.

Also, if you’re in/near Austin, and are interested, Keith Baker (creator of the Eberron setting, the Gloom card game, and much more) and I will be doing a joint signing at Dragon’s Lair. This happens on Wednesday, May 23rd, starting at around 6-ish. The store should have several of my novels available–including, if things go according to plan, Darksiders: the Abomination Vault–and of course, they have quite a few of the RPG books that I (and Keith) worked on, as well. Really hope to see some of you there.

Well, it’s public now, so I can mention it here, too.

If you pre-order Darksiders: the Abomination Vault, you’ll also receive access to a free code that can be used with Darksiders II to unlock a special weapon that appears in both the novel and the game. :-D

Pre-orders are available at Barnes & Noble and Amazon, for hard copy, Nook, and Kindle. Current release date is May 15th, or thereabouts.

I posted about these on my various social networks, but forgot to do so here. D’oh!

Over on Terrible Minds (Chuck Wendig’s page), I’ve got a fairly comprehensive interview. Talks about a lot of different things, from Thief’s Covenant to my writing style to public criticism to, um, some Rapunzel apocrypha. You can read that here.

Second, if you’re really not sick of hearing from me yet, I did a podcast with Shaun over at Adventures in Sci-Fi. It’s not exactly short, but we talked about a lot of (hopefully) interesting stuff. That one’s over here.

Otherwise, not much new as of yet. Those of you who won books from me in the Crossing the Streams contest should have them shortly, if they haven’t arrived already. Keep an eye out for ‘em.
