I’ll be saying this a lot over the next couple of weeks and months, but I wrote a book, and it’ll be available in your favorite reading format (including dead tree) on July 15th. The book is called Flashpoint, and it’s set in Privateer Press’ steam-powered fantasy world of the Iron Kingdoms. I’ve shown the cover before, but it was updated just before it went to press, and now it looks like this:
Pretty cool, huh?
One other bit of news: Privateer Press offered a special pre-release of the book at their annual convention Lock & Load GameFest here in Seattle from June 10-12, and I was on hand to do my very first official book signing, which was a lot of fun. (Apologies to all for my atrocious signature.) Anyway, here are some photos of me at the signing, where I seem to be making weird faces in pretty much every shot. Oh, and a shout-out to my fellow authors Douglas Seacat and Zachary C. Parker with whom I shared the author’s table. (You should read their books too: The Blood of Kings and Wrath of the Dragonfather)
Thanks to my lovely wife, Melissa, for snapping these photos and a bunch of others. She did the absolute best possible with a very difficult subject.
A sincere thanks to all the folks who came out to Lock & Load, bought a copy of Flashpoint, and let me scribble my name in it. I appreciate it more than I can properly express. I hope to see you all again next year and sign one, maybe two more books.
