A New Desmeres Story

I suppose it’s rather strange that, back when I was working a day job and pulling my hair out, I would post something here on my blog practically once a week. Now that I’m a full time author, I’m lucky if I remember to do it even once a month. BAH! No matter. I’m here now, you’re here now, and that’s all that matters.

So what news have I got for you? Well, first up is a new story! Experiments and Enchantments is an anthology put together by Moira Katson. It’s got eleven stories by eleven authors, and it spans the width and breadth of science fiction and fantasy. Check out this lineup!

Starship’s Mage by Glynn Stewart
Saira & the Magic Sword by Moira Katson
Twenty-Five Bombs Fell by A.K. Meek
Sworn to Raise by Terah Edun
The Dust Job by Aimee Kuzenski
Rebel Captive by S.K. Emory
The Redemption of Desmeres by Joseph Lallo
Memories Stirred by Colin Mobey
The Wanderer by Vincent Trigili
Voyage of the Orca by David Bruns
Gaslight Carnival by Tracy Cembor

Tucked in the middle there is a short addition to The Book of Deacon Series.¬†The Redemption of Desmeres¬†is a spin-off of sorts, or what I like to call a Sidequest. It follows Desmeres as he finally puts some thought into just exactly what he’s done in his life, and inparticularly what he did as a part of the events of the trilogy. Right now only this first chapter exists, but if folks are interested I’ll probably try to flesh out a 10 or 12 chapter set and release them on a monthly schedule. That’s the dream, anyway, my limited productivity potential might get in the way of that.

But until then, you can find it here!

Let’s see… what else… OH! Right. The autographs…

Myranda Book PlateAt long last, I’m all set up to start handing out these book plates. They’re stickers, 3×4 inches. To get yours, just send a self-addressed stamped envelope to the following address:

Joseph R. Lallo
PO Box 190
Colonia, NJ 07067

Please include a note letting me know who to make out the autograph to, and if there’s any special sort of message you might want. It’d also be handy if you’d send me an email to let me know your letter is on the way, so I can be sure to check the PO Box regularly.

INTERNATIONAL FANS:¬†Since trying to supply postage on an international self-addressed envelope is a giant pain in the butt, you don’t have to include postage on your envelope. Instead, just send a self-addressed envelope and I’ll handle the postage. HOWEVER! If you’d like to send me something cool, or maybe write me a nice letter, that’d be cool.
