So, CopperCon’s coming up next week. (So is DragonCon, and WorldCon, and a couple of others. But due to an appalling lack of either cloning or transporter technology, I can’t attend all of them. Stupid future.) I’m the Guest of Honor at this year’s CopperCon–and it is, indeed, an honor, as it’s my first GoH invite–so I’m hoping to meet at least a few of you there.

My tentative schedule, if you’ll be attending (or just in the area), looks like this:

Opening Ceremonies, Friday, August 31st, 7:00 PM

Meet the Guest, Saturday, September 1st, 12:00 PM

Panel: Magic Creatures and Imaginary Lands, Saturday, September 1st, 2:00 PM, with Rick Cook and Veronica Baxter

Panel: Sending the Wrong Message, Saturday, September 1st, 9:00 PM, with Janeen O’Kerry and Jordan Summers

Signing, Sunday, September 2nd, 12:00 PM

Panel: How Publishing Will Change, Sunday, September 2nd, 6:00 PM, with Jeffrey Mariotte and Jordan Summers

Panel: Urban Fantasy, Sunday, September 2nd, 8:00 PM, with Jordan Summers

Panel: Writing in a Tabletop Universe, Monday, September 3rd, 12:00 PM, with Jeffrey Mariotte and Ken St Andre


Again, that’s a tentative schedule, subject to a bit of tweaking here and there. (I’m hoping to drop in on a few of the other panels, and if not officially participate, then at least make a nuisance of myself from the peanut gallery.) ;-)

I believe that some of my novels should be available from dealers in the vendors’ room at the con, but I can’t swear to which ones. I’m also happy to sign anything you bring with you. Well, assuming I worked on it.

Or it’s cool.

See you there!

So, as of today, Darksiders: the Abomination Vault is out, available, on shelves, and so forth.

Do you have it yet? Why not? You really should, before it’s too late. Death can be patient, but War gets really violent when he’s frustrated…

So, it’s that time of year again. I don’t yet have my specific schedules within the various conventions, but I thought, for those of you who care (all three of you), I’d go ahead and at least mention which cons I’ll be attending.

ArmadilloCon: July 27-29, here in Austin, TX. I’ll be appearing on multiple panels, though I don’t yet know which ones, and should also hopefully have a signing session. Abomination Vault will have just been released, so feel free to bring it by. :-)

GenCon: August 16-19, Indianapolis, IN. This’ll be my first GenCon in three or four years, and also my first where I’m going almost solely as an attendee, not a guest. Still, I’ll be popping up in various booths and seminars here and there.

Now, normally I’d be going to Dragon*Con at the end of August, but not this year, because…

CopperCon: August 31-September 3, Phoenix, AZ. I’ve been invited to appear as Guest of Honor–the first GoH invite in my career thus far–so I wasn’t about to turn them down. ;-) I’ll be a part of quite a few programming events, and I should have a signing or two as well.

I’ll post more specific schedules as and when I have them. But whatever the case, I hope a lot of you guys’ll stop by and say hey.

So, since the release of False Covenant a couple of weeks ago–actually, even before that, due to advance review copies–I’ve had people asking me if there will be any more Widdershins novels.

Well, since it’s now been announced on the web site of JABberwocky Literary Agency (albeit tucked away in a corner), I figure I can go ahead and answer that question.

I am, in fact, doing two more Widdershins novels for Pyr Books. :-D

I can’t offer much in the way of details yet–not even things as basic as, oh, say, book titles or release dates–but I wanted you guys to know they were coming. I’m really glad this series, and this character, has resonated with so many of you, and I hope you’ll all enjoy where things go from here.

(Well, all of you but Widdershins herself. Frankly, I think the poor girl’s got a lot of tough times ahead.)

Been waiting for the Kindle version of False Covenant? Wait no more! It’s out, and it’s available right here.

It doesn’t seem to be out for the Nook yet, but I promise you, that’s coming, too. Expect another announcement as soon as it appears.

Also? A number of you have been wondering whether you’ll be seeing anything more of Widdershins. Expect some news in the near future. :mrgreen:

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.
