Scroll down until you find some news that interests you… 1. Movie News Well, there is none. There probably won’t be any until the end of February 2015, and the news could be yes, that Paramount wants to make the movie, or no, that Paramount doesn’t want to make the movie, or the news could be that no decision has been made (crazy business, right?). And like you, I hope if they do make the movie that they will do a great job with it. When I hear anything, I will announce it here first, so put a note on your calendar to check this blog then!   2. Public Event News My...

I have exciting news! No…not movie news (it may be another year before there’s news here.) No…not that announcement I promised you (It’s still coming.) But… THE SHADOW THRONE hit two huge¬†milestones today. It will be at #7 on the Mar 16 NYT Series Bestselling list! What is the significance of this? The series list measures sales for an entire series of book, not just the single title. Thus it measures the strength of all books. Getting onto the series list means competing with titles such as Percy Jackson, Divergent, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. And… It will...

Okay, I’ve been promising this for several weeks. Here it is! I am giving away a total of SIX galley copies of THE SHADOW THRONE. You ask, what is a galley? A galley (a.k.a.

At which point I’ll...

And the Cover and Title for Book 3….

…will be announced next THURSDAY, JUNE 13! Stay tuned!¬† In other news, I do get to make one other announcement, which is the publication of The Ascendance Trilogy in Simplified Chinese (Shanghai Zui), Japanese (Holp Shuppan), and Dutch (Lanoo Uitgeveriji). This makes a total of 16 territories/languages, which I think is pretty darn cool. As I see covers (such as the Spanish cover for THE RUNAWAY KING below), I’ll post them on each book’s page here. So, about that cover…any guesses for the color or for the symbol image? I’m curious if anyone might get both...
