It seems no time has passed since Wizard World Austin, but it has been two weeks. I almost suspect someone has been pilfering minutes when my back is turned. Truth is, the available hours are so sliced up and distributed between all the active projects that every day seems to whip past. Updates on all these activities is forthcoming. For now, only two have reached a state deserving mention. First, volume 1 of The Scroll, the new magazine from Zarathustra Publishing, is hot off the press. Featured in its pages is part one of Rose Moon, my paranormal romance. This short novel, which will appear over the first four issues of The Scroll, is a story of Bigger MacGregor, a character familiar as a boy in Sleeper Awakes, the third book of The Hidden Lands of Nod, and as an old man in “Death on the Toilet,” my short story available for free download on Smashwords.com. To purchase copies of The Scroll, visit the Zarathustra Publishing site.
The notion of purchase is an expansive one, and I would like to point out that the left column of THIS site provides links to purchase paperback editions of all my currently available books—including newly minted and long awaited, The Way It Grows: An Introduction to Dvarsh, which I co-authored with the esteemed editor of the Blue Moose Press editions of my novels, Amanda Kimmerly. In fact, I herewith issue a seasonal appeal. Please buy copies of my books! They make wonderful gifts for every voyager of the imagination—and there is no better way to support art and literature than by purchasing it! These paperbacks may be available cheaper from your favorite retail bookseller, and they are certainly available cheaper as e-publications from Smashwords.com. If those are your chosen sources, go for them with blessings! Please note, however, that paperbacks ordered through this website are shipped with author signatures on the title pages. That’s not a deal one finds every day.
