Operation: Save the Innocent

ISI_2_Cover Is off to the printer! It will be a couple of weeks late, but should be out before the end of April. Welcome back John Reese and the vampires from the Team of Darkness as things get a little grimmer all the way around.

Visit Tony's website for additional content.


EPPIC WIN (we won, we won!)

The Complete Guide to Writing Science Fiction: Volume One WON an EPPIE!! Congratulations to the team who put that one together. Way to go everyone.

Firestorm of Dragons

Firestorm of Dragons should hit the world this week, as I got shipping notification from the printer on Friday.



I'm working on moving all our products into a product management program, called Dashbook, which should make my life easier at royalty time. It is, however, a pain in the butt when you are first getting started, as I had to enter everything manually. It meant having to do inventory counts, which I did yesterday, so now my desk really looks like a hurricane hit it. Someday I will get an office. Please. And that's about all the news for now. It's been a quiet few weeks for me, in terms of blogging. Been working too hard to even play on Facebook!

ForeWord Magazine Names Finalists for 2007 Book of the Year

And we've got two in the running! Congratulations to Jana Oliver with Virtual Evil, in the SF category (winning would be a wonderful followup to the big win for Sojourn last year!), and to Dave Law and Darin Park, and all the contributors, for the finalist status in the Career category for The Complete Guide to Writing Science Fiction: Volume 1~First Contact!!! (I think it should win for longest title!). The other guides have finaled before, so here's hoping to a WIN for both books.
Just goes to show you what great authors and books we've got... IMHO.

Many Great Things Happening!

There are so many things happening this month, I just don't know where to begin!

First, you must sign up for the Lachlei contest... the winner gets killed. Horribly, and in print, by a werewolf in MH Bonham's next DMP book, Howling Dead. I'm not allowed to win, so I hope you do (otherwise...). Visit the Lachlei website for details.

Chasing the Bard is coming to you live at the end of the month as a podcast! Check out Philippa's website for details, and to sign up for what should be a great listen... you've got to adore the accent. And you might want a refresher before picking up a copy of Digital Magic, the sequel, this summer! We've got a working cover, and we're getting excited!

Tee is working hard on Billibub Baddings and the Case of the Pitcher's Pendant, with a sexy new cover style (Chicago noir with pizzazz and attitude!). We'll be seeing that one in August, with more details to follow. You can listen to the podcast of Billibub Baddings and the Case of the Singing Sword here, if you can't wait for the August release!

Before that though, FireStorm of Dragons! It's at the printers and aiming to look awfully cool. A great lineup of stories, the book has its own website. Whether you think dragons are sweet and tasty, or just a little nasty, this book has more than a few stories you're going to love (awww, heck, you're going to love them all).

And the long-awaited, Sorcerers of War, by Kristan Proudman, will be available later this year. After a long quest, Kristan completed the manuscript. Now back home in Australia, he's going to have fun helping us find a niche down under.

It's going to be an exciting season! Hope you enjoy them all.
