I have been working furiously to get book 2 in the Arthe Awakening series out in June, as opposed to the originally scheduled release date of November, 2014. The writing and the editing is almost complete. There will need to be a few more book design changes, and the cover design is not yet done. The book will be out in early July at the latest, still four months ahead of the original date. Why? Because the fans that offered…

Even my dentist loved the book! Yesterday he talked about the characters, his favorites, and looking forward to the new book. He said I was "very imaginative," and my characters were "interesting and well developed." The release of the second book in the series, There Used to be Magic, has been pulled in to June instead of November BECAUSE OF ALL THE FAN SUPPORT! Thank you so much for your encouragement. I love the fact that you are all enjoying…

OK friends and fans . . . Gamestorm 16 is even more exciting and well attended than Gamestorm 15 last year! It is great fun to help in the Game Lab, probably play testing 70-80 new games this year! I found a few new ones I want to pick up, and the reviews on the couple we have rolled out are excellent! There's still time to attend (if you're local, Pacific NW), as the convention runs through 6 pm Sunday!

For anyone watching this page, my apologies for having entered the wrong dates for Gamestorm. I have corrected them now, reflecting the true dates of March 20-23. Gamestorm is being held at the Hilton in Vancouver, WA.\ I will have copies of my book there, and bookmarks, but I am not attending primarily as an author. I am attending primarily as a game designer, along with my design partner, Hugh Wright. We will be officially play testing one of our…

Jan's Paperbacks, used book store in Aloha, OR, is AWESOME! They truly support local authors. C.J. Maillup and I had a book signing there today, and it was a good event. A lot of customers stopped by, we chatted, C.J. and I each sold and signed some books (his family is great). Jan's not only advertised, provided the venue, including tables and chairs; they also put out cookies, and gave us water. On top of all that, they discounted our…

This morning I attended the University Club Toastmasters as a guest speaker, and volunteered to serve as general evaluator. The club is warm and welcoming. Anyone looking for a great way to start their Thursday morning in downtown Portland should consider attending/joining. I wasn't pleased with many aspects of my speech this morning, and I flailed about a bit as general evaluator, unused to their particular protocols. In spite of that I enjoyed myself, and they were encouraging. I did…

Having learned yesterday afernoon that I would be speaking this morning at a Toastmaster's Club (Daylighters; meets Wednesdays, 06:40 - 07:55, Cedar Hills Recreation Center), I didn't feel there was time to add it to my "Next Appearance." My humorous speech about New Year's Resolutions was well received, by a small but energetic group.

I updated the description in the "Out Now" section. The new description gives a better feel for the trilogy, setting, and how it ties with its companion trilogy. However, that means less is said about the first book, Once There Were Dragons. Look for "Coming Soon" to appear soon, as I finalize my target date for the first book in Foredune Revisited, Problems in Pairodice!
