Back From Boston, and Open For Business

Hello once again! Well, PAX East is behind me, having brought with it awesome New England food, video games, and general geekery in near overdose levels. It was what you might call a working vacation, and the mound of notes I brought back is going to be keeping me busy with my other other job for a week or two. That doesn’t mean that I’ve completely taken off my indie author hat in favor of my phoney baloney game journalist hat entirely. No sirree! For one thing, the first round of requests for autographed books have been signed, packaged, and shipped. If I did everything right, the first of them should be arriving at its destination on Monday. (Fingers crossed on that one, by the way. I’m a shipping novice.) How did they get their hands on their books, you ask? At my brand spanking new store, of course! Right now my one and only “product” is a copy of the paperback with my scribbled signature on the front page, but I’m working on adding a thing or two to my inventory. I’ll be sure to spread the word when I do.

Also, in my absence the folks at Pure Textuality saw fit to pick up the final book of the trilogy and write a review. You can check it out here. My continuing thanks to the folks at that site for their continuing interest and enthusiasm for my books.

The other big, and confusing, news is that someone has approached me to negotiate producing a Bulgarian language edition of The Book of Deacon. … I cannot begin to articulate how bizarre it is to be writing that. There is a profoundly complex sequence of legal hurdles to be navigated before such a thing can occur, and I’m not entirely certain I’m going to go through with it, but it certainly has been an interesting thing to think about.

On the off chance than any of you are intellectual property attorneys with advice to share on the subject, feel free to comment. Otherwise, thanks for reading!


  1. Woo-Hoo!! My book arrived today. It is beautiful through and through. Thank-you for taking the time to do this for your fans!! The message and # were especially nice!

    Sounds like you had way too much fun at PAX. Anything interesting on the Halo home front? (yes, yes I endulge every once in awhile. I’m almost finished with Fable III. It’s ok, I guess.) I hear Skyrim rocks, but once you start playing it, you can kiss your life good-bye.

    Again, thank-you for the book. Looking forward to the rest of the trilogy in paper back!!

    1. I’m glad you like the book, and you are very welcome. PAX was great, we talked to quite a few developers. There wasn’t too much Halo-wise, this year, but that didn’t stop one of our guys from compiling the latest round of rumors and speculation into an article: ( I’ve managed to avoid the siren call of Skyrim, but there are a few things I saw on the show floor I might not be able to resist.

  2. I just wanted to take the time to say I enjoyed the trilogy very much. There were quite a few late nights spent reading them. I would love to see the characters unfold into further tales of good vs evil. I do believe this would be an excellent movie. 🙂

    1. Thanks! I’m very glad that you enjoyed the books, and I hope to write more stories featuring these and other characters for years to come. (Wouldn’t mind it becoming a movie, either.)

  3. I loved Book of Deacon. Being a grandmother I wouldn’t say I’m a fan of fantasy fiction but since I got my Kindle for Christmas this is the best book I’ve read. Amazon offered the book for free and once I started it I couldn’t put it down. Thank you for a very enjoyable read.

    1. Thanks! I’ve actually had a few grandparents tell me that they enjoyed the series. I’m glad that so many generations of readers can find something to enjoy in my writing!

  4. I just finished reading the last book in the series. I enjoyed every one of them. The only problem I had was once I started reading I couldn’t put the book down. Thus many very short nights. It was worth it! Thanks for the good read.
