Hey, folks. Got my tentative schedule for ArmadilloCon, where I hope to be seeing a great many of you.

Friday, 8:00-9:00 PM, Trinity Room: Panel, Building a Fictional Society from the Ground Up.

Saturday, 11:00 AM-12:00 PM, Dealer’s Room: Signing (if you can see any of us behind the line for Scott Lynch).

Saturday, 1:00 PM-2:00 PM, Trinity Room: Pyr Presentation. I’m not actually a formal part of this one–it’s entirely Lou Anders’ show–but I intend to be there, since A) I’ve got books out and forthcoming with Pyr, and B) they’re a great publisher.

Saturday, 4:00 PM-5:00 PM, Trinity Room: Panel, Learning From Others’ Mistakes (Writing Errors to Avoid).

Saturday, 5:00 PM-6:00 PM, Sabine Room: Panel, The Second Book is Always the Hardest.

I’ll be around at other times as well, but those are the places I specifically plan to be, if you want to swing by and say hi, or (for some bizarre reason) care to listen to anything I have to say.

A few quick reminders:

I’ll be signing at Dragon’s Lair on Wednesday the 17th, starting at 6:00 PM. They’ll have copies of The Goblin Corps available, as well as the new Neverwinter campaign setting and plenty of my other gaming books. And you’re welcome to bring your own books for me to sign, too; just make sure the folks at the store know you brought ‘em with you.

And don’t forget my easiest contest ever is still going on. It’s a breeze to enter, and you’ve got an equally good shot at winning whether you’re a long-term fan or have never read a single word of my work. Good luck!

It’s contest time again, folks! And this time, I’ve made it really, really easy. Whether you’re a fan of my books or have never read a word I’ve written, you’re equally applicable.

Find full rules and contest details here. And good luck. :-)

(Also, quick reminder. I’ll be doing a signing at Dragon’s Lair on the evening of the 17th. If you’re in the Austin area, I’d love for you to swing by.)

Earlier this evening, I got an e-mail, via the website, from someone who had just picked up The Goblin Corps and had a question about it. (You also mentioned Dungeons & Dragons.) And I accidentally clicked where I didn’t mean to, and deleted the darn thing. :oops:

If that was you, my sincere apologies, and please resend.

…to all my German-speaking readers, and readers-to-be. :-D

If you’re going to be in/around the Austin area on the evening of Wednesday the 17th, I’ll be doing a book signing at Dragon’s Lair.

(If you’re not in/around the Austin area, I’ll still be doing the signing. Just in case you were wondering. :-P )

I’m happy to sign anything of mine that you might care to bring, and the store should have copies of The Goblin Corps available for sale, as well as a great many of the RPG books I’ve worked on. Further, the new Neverwinter campaign setting will have just come out, and should be available for purchase as well.

Be there or, well, I won’t see you there.

Okay, so I promised that the aforementioned excerpt–which was previously accessible only via the Goblin Corps Facebook page–would soon be available for everyone. And here it is! Click, download, read!

This excerpt includes the entirety of the prologue and Chapter One. (This book has long chapters.) And I can absolutely guarantee that, once you’ve read it, you’ll assuredly, 100% either buy the book or not.

(Oddly, I have a slight preference for the former. :mrgreen: )

I’ve decided to make a chunk of The Goblin Corps available for your perusal, absolutely free.

At the moment, it’s only available through the Goblin Corps Facebook page. (And if you haven’t joined it yet, you should go do that. RIGHT NOW!) I realize this leaves out those of you don’t use FB, but fret not. This is just a bit of an advance peak for people on that page. I’ll be making the excerpt available to everyone else in the very near future. :-)

And this is no wussy little 10-page teaser, oh, no. I’m offering the entirety of the prologue and chapter one–about 74 pages-worth. So get to readin’!

Hey, guys. Hope those of you who celebrate it had a great holiday weekend. (Those of you who don’t celebrate are welcome to have had a great weekend, too. ;-) )

So, a number of things. First off, I don’t have a schedule yet, but I will be attending both ArmadilloCon and Dragon*Con this year. More when I know it, but I hope to see some of you there.

Second, the latest “Take Five” entry over at Suvudu–a series in which writers discuss five (hopefully) interesting facts or details about their work–is about The Goblin Corps. If you’re interested in learning more about the book, you can do so by clicking here.

And speaking of The Goblin Corps, there’s a new Goblin Corpse Facebook page, hosted by Cræosh. There’s not a lot there yet, but by all means, if you’re an FB user, join up. I’ll be posting more stuff there as time goes on.

Also, check out this awesome Goblin Corps recruitment poster, courtesy of the esteemed Claudio Pozas. If there’s enough interest, I may well make this available for purchase as a poster and/or tee-shirt. Any takers?

Finally, I’d like to try something new on my blog. It’s called “Ask the Author,” and if there’s enough interest, I may make it a recurring feature. Take a look here, and if you like the idea, ask away. :-)

And I think that’s it for genuine news. In more vague terms, I should have some pretty interesting info in the near future, involving some future projects (original and tie-in), but I can’t go into ‘em yet. Soon, my precious…

My very first published novel, released back in… um, 2004 (holy crap, I’m getting old), was Gehenna: the Final Night. A tie-in novel for White Wolf, it was the final book in the Vampire: the Masquerade fiction line.

It’s been largely unavailable for the past six years, unless you wanted to buy it used, but no more! DriveThruRPG has it available, either as a PDF or as a print-on-demand paperback. You can take a look by clicking here.

I don’t know how much appeal this will have to anyone who wasn’t a V:tM fan. It’s pretty heavily steeped in the canon of that game. And as it was my first published novel, it’s not quite as polished as my more recent work. All that said, I’m still really proud of how it came out, and I’m delighted that it’s available again for any of you who want it. :-D
