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.

So all the authors involved in the Crossing the Streams contest pooled our entrants, and our single super-winner has been determined.

Congratulations, David J. Fortier! You win a signed book from each and every participating author! :-D

Dave won, for those who are interested in such details, via his entry to Jon Sprunk’s portion of the contest. Jon and Pyr Books have just released the third book in his Shadows trilogy, so go check him out. He’s worth reading.

Thank you, again, to everyone who entered. You made this whole experiment a blast, and we’re almost certain to be doing this again at some point in the not too distant future. :-)

What follows is the tentative cover copy/blurb for False Covenant, the second Widdershins novel. Some of the more clever among you might have already figured that out from the subtle clues hidden in the headline.

A warning before you read this, though. It does include some spoilers–regarding some particular character deaths–from the first novel, Thief’s Covenant. If you haven’t read the first one yet, and you don’t like having some substantial plot points spoiled for you in advance, you may want to hold off on reading this.
