Here's the Kickstarter for the fantasy anthology THE AWAKENED II. I have a story in it as do other Forgotten Realms authors, and I hope you'll check out the campaign.

How well do you find DriveThru Rpg/fiction/comics/etc works as a distribution platform for creators? Do you see similar returns for your work compared to other distribution and [self] publication venues?

I'm the wrong person to ask. I haven't seen much money directly from DriveThry, but I also haven't published anything there myself. Every product that bears my name has been produced by the intermediary of a publisher. In many cases, the material is reprints of old books long out of print where you wouldn't necessarily expect a sales bonanza. Thus, DriveThry has never really had a fair chance to deliver big for me.

In general, I'm not the best guy to ask about distribution channels and self-publishing. Don't get me wrong, I'll answer if I can, but most of my work, certainly the more profitable part, has been me selling to traditional publishers. So I'm not especially knowledgeable in general. People who have made a big success out of self-publishing or running their own publishing companies can probably give you far better information.

It's been a busy few months for me so I just went to purchase Black Dogs tonight to catch up with the Black River Irregulars and noticed it turned out not to come out in March. What the heck happened?! Do you know if it was pushed back to coincide with their expansion that they are getting with the board game?

Hi, Hippo. I don't know why the schedule changed. I do know the book is supposed to come out Sept. 1. The audiobook edition is already listed on Amazon, but the last time I looked, the print and eBook editions were not listed yet. Still, so far as I know, Sept. 1 is the release date for all three.

I noted previously that the Audible edition of BLACK DOGS (my next fantasy novel) was available for preorder. Now the Kindle edition is, too. The book is the first in a trilogy about the Iron Kingdoms mercenary company the Black River Irregulars, whom you may have encountered previously in my novella MURDER IN CORVIS.

I look forward to reading it!

I also see that those characters are going to be used in an expansion for the Iron Kingdoms boardgame, the Undercity. I played the base game at GenCon this weekend, and it was a lot of fun.

I posted previously that the Audible and Kindle editions of my Iron Kingdoms novel BLACK DOGS are available for preorder. Now I see that, for those who prefer books made of protons and neutrons as well as electrons, the print edition is as well. Here's the link:

Thanks for the link! I have preordered that book (and Breath of Earth, my friend Beth's new book, too!)

So the publisher tells me the release of BLACK DOGS, my Iron Kingdoms fantasy novel, was pushed back to 11/9. Yet a friend tells me the Kindle and audio editions are available on Amazon right now. So if one of those is your preferred mode of reading, you're good to go. Whereas if you want to read the paper-and-ink edition, I guess you'll have to wait until 11/9, although you can of course preorder it now.

For those who are interested, here's the link to the book on Amazon:

After some garbled communication and general confusion, I now know that, contrary to what I posted previously, my new fantasy novel BLACK DOGS is already available in all formats, eBook, audiobook, AND paper-and-ink.

The story is set in the Iron Kingdoms universe of Privateer Press and stars the Black River Irregulars, the mercenary band who appeared previously in my novella MURDER IN CORVIS. I'm going to go out on a limb here and predict that if you enjoyed it when I wrote about a mercenary company in the Forgotten Realms, you'll enjoy these new stories as well.

Anyway, here I am plugging the novel one more time and letting you know that if old-school paper-and-ink is your preferred format, you need not wait until November to read it that way. You can get it that way now. Just follow the link:

I did a piece for the Stormtalons blog about writing in a shared setting, specifically, a shared setting that's just starting out. You can read that here:
