Macro Montuesday Is Back From The Heat Death Of The Universe

I HAVE RETURNED FROM THE DESERT, HAVING HAD A VISION OF A BUNCH OF WEIRDO AUTHORS GATHERING THERE TO DRINK FANCY COCKTAILS AND TALK NERD SHIT and lo, it was good.

I met those randos above, which include, from L to R: Brandon Sanderson, Mark Coal, James Joyce, Stevia McGee, and me in the center: Chnurk Mandog.

*checks notes*

Okay that can’t be right.

Fine fine fine, it’s a handful of WONDERPALS, the storytellers: Sam Sykes, Myke Cole, Aaron Mahnke, and Delilah S. Dawson. We were loosed onto the streets of the city to roam and wreak havoc. (Oh and P.S., Aaron Mahnke’s newest Lore tome is out today. Go grabby Wicked Mortals — print or e-book. Don’t make me come over there.)

Seriously, Phoenix Comic-Con — wait, Comic Fest? — wait, Fan Fusion? — was rad. Such a wonderful crowd of fans and writers, really some of my favorite people in the whole damn universe. Trips like this make me realize how lucky I am to do what I do and to surround myself with such talented, kind, and utterly strange people.

*throws mug to the ground; it shatters*

ANOTHER, I SAY.

Let’s see, what else is going on?

OOH OOH OOH, Tor.com revealed the newest and last Miriam Black coverVultures, which comes out in January 2019, now has what has easily become one of my favorite covers of all my books, courtesy of Adam Doyle. Tor has the exclusive. They also have the exclusive cover copy/story description — but I’ll warn you, if you’re not caught up, it’s hella spoilery. Good news is, you can bop over and see the cover without reading that. But it will give away the events of prior books, as the last book in a series ultimately must. Vultures is not a book to read if you’ve not read the five books that precede it.

I also have some cover designs rolling in for Wanderers, and some ARCs have already started to go out — even though the book doesn’t come out until April of next year, Del Rey wants to get an early promotional jump, so that’s exciting. I’ll show the cover when we’ve settle on one but it is looking really amazing. I’m honestly nervous to have people read the book.

Hm. What else?

Some nice sales or price-drops on my books in digital —

Blackbirds is now $5.99.

Invasive is also $5.99, but also is enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.

Zer0es is on sale for $1.99 — not sure how long that lasts, so go grabby grabby.

And I think that’s it.
