Nope, I tell you very truthfully--other than the Realms of the Dead anthology coming out in a couple months, I have nothing in the novel/short story works with WotC at the moment.
That's disappointing. I'm hoping this just means Wizards' haven't finalised their release schedules yet.

Who knows?

Knowing how far they plan things out, though, I suspect they're booked through 2011.

Well, I certainly hope there are plans for a Erik Scott de Bie trilogy! I can't see how their couldn't be one. Great writing and even greater characters! :)

Thank you sir, and I sincerely hope so as well. I very much enjoy writing in the Realms . . . not to mention so much positive interaction with Realms fans about my work.

Cheers

Hrast!

I much prefer when you are coy with questions like that, since it usaully meant you had something brewing. I would be lying if I said that the hope of new de Bie wasn't one of the few things keeping my door open to post-spellplague realms novels....bummer.

Thanks for saying so. My hope is that enough people will mention that to WotC that they will put me high on their list.

If you are thinking they may be booked thru 2011, and have nothing FR cooking.....that is not news I like to hear for sure, 2012 is a long, long ways away....even if you were approached soon it may be hard to get slotted by then

Well....I like to think something through, but once I make my mind up to do it , it's on! I don't often hand write anything anymore(who has time anymore and no spellcheck!) , but I am starting to coalesce a few thoughts......that may be best expressed on my most excellent stationary, penned in the best way I can. I know you will write fine work, with or without FR, but I cannot envision a FR novel line without your work. Kinda puts a fire in the ole belly just thinking about it, it might be the straw that broke the camels back. I have read something over 225 FR novels....all loyally purchased new (except when replacing for collections sake, ie buying the Magehound second-hand because I never knew it came in hard back, so I had to!)from local book sellers or amazon.....assuring maximum profit to WOTC and more importantly , ensure support of favorite authors. I think I am a consumer worth kepping, but hey ...ya never know!

Not that you need prodded, but keep us in the loop here on your other works and we will keep fingers crossed for FR from you!

I wanted to let everyone know that my latest Realms offering--"A Body in a Bag"--is on the shelves now, part of the Realms of the Dead anthology . . . along with a whole slew of cool stories. In particular, it will be quite rewarding for fans of Rosemary's brilliant City of the Dead and Crypt of the Moaning Diamond, and also those of my readers who like puzzling out how it's subtly connected to my past work. (And yes, I have manually confirmed that the easter egg did indeed make it through editing.)

The title of the story is sort of inspired by my love of the show Bones, which in turn sort of informs the persona of the heroine/love-interest. Check it out--you'll see what I mean.

The secondary/secret title of this story is "A Love Story in Parts." A romantic comedy . . . with ghoul.

Cheers


Mod Edit: Fixed the URL.

Actually, you're were pretty much on the mark for the URL. You just missed the " and " at the beginning and end of the web address.

I used to get tripped up by that little detail.

"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed

will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."

I copied the link from livejournal, is what. Apparently, it's like mixing arcane and divine magic and not being a theurge.

Wow. Geeky joke +12!

Heh.

Essentially, it's really just a relic of the older forum software being used here at Candlekeep. Most modern hypertext links used nowadays in forums normally don't require the " and " at the beginning and end of a link.

It's one of the aspects we're hoping to upgrade with the change-over to Candlekeep 2.

Erik,

Have you got a look at the cover for The Fall of Highwatch?
I like that is was rotated 90 degress to give a more cinematic feel. Looks very nice and surprised it hasn't been tried sooner for a FR novel. Don know if it just for his series or maybe a new approach.
Just curious to see what you thought, since this "cinematic" approach at a novel cover would work so well for your work.

I've seen the cover only briefly, and I like the concept. Well executed, I think, in this case. I would be pretty happy to have a solid work of art like this on the cover of my next WotC book--whenever it appears.

I myself am a fan of wrap-around covers, as well. Complex battle scenes that wrap are particularly cool, in my book, but maybe that's old fashioned.

Cheers

I like that kinda thing too, but if a dustjacket on a hardcover (or even a paperback's spine) is too busy for my wife's taste......it usually means I can't store it on my main bookshelf without removing it!

P.S. and I will have to admit, she may be right......FR dustjackets might not blend very well with the French Provincial vibe she has going on in our manor

so who did you have running the Yawning portal in your encounters adventure???

why is being a wizard like being a drow? both are likely to find a dagger in the back from a rival or one looking to further his own goals, fame and power

Not just I, but *everyone* running the D&D Encounters program had the Yawning Portal.

It was extremely fun from a design perspective to use such a famous part of Undermountain/Waterdeep lore.

I wanted to pop in and address a point raised on my Book Club scroll, specifically:

Well, here's the thing: it's all about sales figures. And since I'm still fairly early in my writing career (i.e., I don't have the body of published work, readership, etc., that authors like RLB, Paul Kemp, Elaine, or particularly Bob do), I don't move as many copies as I need to in order to get attention from the PTB at WotC, who could give me a trilogy or the like. How fast I get my momentum going depends strictly on how many people buy my work.

Does this mean one shouldn't sing my (or any author's) praises on a messageboard or post reviews on Amazon or talk us up to your friends? No, absolutely, you should TOTALLY do these things. The more awareness we get, the more people consider buying our books, and the more sales figures we'll get.

I am doing my best to keep up the marketing and bring myself to more people's awareness, and I appreciate all the help I can get. Also, it's kinda my job to put out quality work--the better my stuff, the better it will/should sell, the higher my figures, the more likely I am to get other things.

Also, I recently hinted that I was indeed now under contract to write another WotC novel. No other details about it--it's WAY too early to start the hype--but I credit all the people who went out and bought Downshadow as being the primary (or indeed sole!) reason I got more novel work.

And on that note . . . back to work!

Cheers

There is indeed a note in the adventure that the proprietor of the tavern is a big Chondathan man called Durnan the Sixth.

The PCs have three alternatives when it comes to getting down into Undermountain: their employer (Fayne) arranges it, they pay a fee, or they try to do it themselves, which they are strongly advised NOT to attempt.

If they do indeed try to do it themselves and fail at the necessary skill checks, they fall down into the cavern, suffering some serious falling damage, and Durnan--who is operating the winch--leans over the well and shouts I told you so!

Hm, while this sounds perfectly reasonable, I wonder why Mark Sehestedt got a trilogy assigned then? Because I would be surprised to find sales for his two first books having been better than Downshadow and your other two novels.
Don't get me wrong, it is not about depreciating Mark's work. Not at all. And may he be assigned more trilogies in the future, who would object to that?
It is just that if it is about pure sales volume, then it appears strange that he gets assigned a trilogy before you do. That's all.
Anyway, just my two cents on something that does not appear logical to me.

I don't know. Maybe?

I'm gonna try to find out, 'kay?

@skychrome: I have no idea as to whose sales figures are what, beyond the basics (like Bob = unstoppable, Paul = kick-ass bestsellers, etc). All I know is that raising my own sales figures is my best shot at getting more work.

Very well, I have contributed my share to the sales figures approach and I am confident you will get your trilogy in the end.
Apart from that I recommend pestering WoTC all day long to consider a Fox trilogy, as that is a save bet regarding sales numbers. Guess there are few people who do not see her as one of the most popular FR chars.
