Blood of Billions Pre-Order!

Before we get to the pre-order business, let me tell you a little something about this book. First: it’s the best stuff I’ve ever written. Hands-down. Not only that, it was the hardest book I’ve tackled. It’s the one I had the most doubts about. The one I agonized over. When I started writing Land of Light, I contemplated restricting the Bern Saga to three books. Looking back on how much hand-wringing I did over that decision, it seems a bit silly. The Bern Saga was always supposed to be…

An EPIC day at MCA!

A huge thanks to Millennium Charter Academy for having me speak with their students today. I had a great time, and came away very impressed with their school and their students. I spoke for an hour or so with the middle schoolers (Half of that was my talk on writing and reading, the other half was a Q&A).

Molly Fyde and the Land of Light

[wp_cart:Molly Fyde and the Land of Light:price:13.99:end] Okay, the manuscript has been turned into a book. That means the pages are laid out, the formatting is just the way I want it, I have the splash pages and maps in place, the headers and footnotes look good, and the page numbers are down in the corners, happy as little ticks in a dog’s hide. All that’s left is one final reading for typos, which I’m half way through doing as we speak. Of course, some will survive. They’ll hide behind…
