Weekly Update – January 14, 2020

Big week this week!

First, Action Figures – Issue Nine: Hell Hath No Fury is available for pre-sale for the Kindle! Buy it now for $3.99 and get it when it drops next week — January 21, to be precise. The print edition should be ready by the end of the month or early February.

Next, the audiobook edition of The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Assassins Brawl is finally available! It dropped yesterday and is on Audible now. Once again, my narrator Heather did a kickass job, and I can’t wait to hear what she’s going to do for Blades of Glory.

Finally, Arisia is this weekend! I’ll be there all four days, most of that time in the dealers room at table A18, but I have two panels on Saturday: Getting Into Character in Otis (2W), 4:30 PM; and Fiction That Dies Unseen in Marina 2 (2E), 7 PM. The full schedule is available at the Arisia website, along with the program.

Hope to see you there!
