Lots going on! First, I wanted to alert readers in southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois to my signing on Saturday (Feb. 19th) at Westfield Comics in Madison, Wis. Stormtroopers from the 501st will be present. Take a break from the craziness at the State Capital and come visit! The signing is from 1-4 at the Westside store, 7475 Mineral Point Rd., Suite 22., in High Point Center.
Second, I’ve been doing a slew of podcasts — one of which is now online. Click to hear me on the latest Fictional Frontiers.
Next, I’ll be appearing at C2E2 in Chicago in March — and I’ve learned I’ll be on a Del Rey panel with Paul S. Kemp on Friday afternoon. I’m also signing for Del Rey on Saturday — and will have hours for Dark Horse as well. More details as I have them.
Finally, in advance of getting my production notes for the novel together — and with the final issue of “Aflame” out — I hereby launch the “Ask Me Anything” for the novel and the first comics series. The rules are the same as the pre-release one; I can only speak to what’s happened in the novel and comics so far, and won’t spoil anything coming up. Please look at the three pre-release answer posts to see if your question’s already been answered. You might also see what’s been discussed already in the Facebook chat transcript. I’m really looking for some original questions we haven’t hit before — surprise me!
Now, to the contest part — I’ll be sending signed copies of both the novel and Aflame #1-5 to two questioners chosen at random. Posting more than one question doesn’t increase your chances — and, again, original questions are always appreciated. Please use your name or a distinct username with your post, and check back here on March 1 when I’ll announce the winners. Then the winners will need to get in touch with me with their addresses and any personalization instructions.
This covers the novel and the comics, so consider a Spoiler Warning as you read others’ questions. You may want to skip to the bottom for the comment pane if you’ve only read one of them. Onward!
