Jordan Con's just around the corner (April 20th-22nd) and I'm SUPER stoked--I've got the updated Willow of Ashes ready to go, the second book, Orbs of Azure, is running on-time to arrive for the con, my costumes are now in the 'final touches' stage, I've got a reading scheduled there, and I GET TO PLAY A CARD GAME as one of my "panels"!
Man, I can't wait to play this game. It's called Once Upon a Time, it's a story-building table top. As for the reading, I'm still debating if I should read an excerpt from the first book or the second in my epic fantasy series, depending on who will attend and be around to listen. I'll also have a few hours a day at the shared author's table selling and signing books, so keep an eye out!
We'll have paperbacks and hardcovers, and will be doing special givaways onsite at the table during the times I'll be there per day.
Wanna see the special bonus features included in the hardcover? Check it out--the hardcover jacket comes with this exclusive material on the inside flaps that you can't find on the ebook or paperback! It includes a line-up of the Evocator marks associated with the books on one side, and the full Reaper's Creed on the other.
Though rest assured that all formats of Willow of Ashes comes with the interior bonus features like a list of the Laws of Death, the names associated with the Evocator types, and even a sneak peak of the prologue to Orbs of Azure! I'm really happy with how it all came out, it looks so cool!
Anyway, I'm really excited and I hope to see y'all there! If you do decide to swing by, here's my guest schedule:
