First, apparently Wizards of the Coast has signed a new distribution agreement with Random House and the heretofore elusive and never-before-seen-on-camera international ebook versions of WotC novels will soon be available. Print versions have been available in various languages for time immemorial, and now ebooks will join them. Rock on. EURASIA, EREVIS CALE IS IN YOU!
Second, Angry Robot tells me they’re very happy with sales of The Hammer and the Blade, but, alas, I am not. Why, you ask? Well, because lots of folks who’ve read the aforementioned Erevis Cale stories and my Star Wars novels have not yet met Egil and Nix. I ask myself: “Self, how can this be? Have they not seen the open letter? Have they not seen my top ten reasons? Have they not yet read the first fifty pages? Have they not read the many, many glowing reviews? Are they not entertained? ARE THEY NOT ENTERTAINED?”
Ahem. So seriously, if you’ve enjoyed my work in the past, you’ll love Egil and Nix. Please give it a try lest I weep into my whiskey.
Third, I’ll be at GenCon Indy next week. On Saturday at 10AM I’ll be signing in the D&D Experience area with Ed Greenwood and Erin M. Evans. Then, at 11AM, I’ll be signing in the WotC booth with R.A. Salvatore. In both cases, I’ll be the forlorn, possibly nude dude (fair warning) without the line, so come on by and chat. I’ll sign whatever you have. I expect to be on a panel or two, too. More details when I know them.
Fourth, I get so many hits on the site looking for news on Godborn that my cockles get all warm and cockly (sidenote: Endeavor to use the word ‘cockly’ in a sentence today; you know what it means; you KNOW). News this month. Not a tease, but real news. Pinky promise.
Fifth, there is no fifth. Only Zuul.
