Well, this’ll be the 15th year that the Wookie and I have gone to Origins in Columbus – if you’re in the area and love gaming, be sure to check it out!
I’ve signed up for a LOT of Call of Cthulhu RPG games – since I want to run them for our local group, I figure I need to play more and more to become a better Keeper, or DM.
And, oh yeah… Book Cover Reveal!
Isn’t this a fantastic cover? Here’s the official blurb:
Special Agent Trace Dyson races around the world, retrieving priceless artifacts from criminals. But his one dream is to recover a spear, stolen from The Valkyrie’s Tomb. It’s his family’s White Whale, his father and grandfather’s unfulfilled mission––and when he sees a beautiful and mysterious woman steal a bracelet from the tomb’s exhibit, he’s intrigued. Before he takes her to jail, he has a few questions.
Laila Nyland is a Valkyrie on the edge––worn out from her duties, her final mission is to come to Midgard and find a mystical spear lost centuries ago. Forced into a partnership with Trace, she can’t help but be attracted to the hardcore treasure hunter even if he drives her up a wall. The more she learns about him––the harder it is to lie to him about her mission.
Before their secrets rip them apart, these two will be responsible for saving the world––that is if they can trust each other longer than two minutes.
I really, REALLY liked writing this one because it gave me a chance to get my inner Indiana Jones/Lara Croft out on the page. Along with the Fenris Wolf and Ragnarok.
It’s the last in the series, and unfortunately the last book at present with Entangled Publishing. With my agents dropping me, it seems I’m back to the start with the writing – however, after 21 books I definitely don’t feel like a n00b anymore.
But I’ve gotten the rights back to an older book, originally put out by Carina Press – my shifter novel, Blood of the Pride. That’ll be reissued in the fall with a new cover, after I spiff it up a bit – it’s almost ten years old, and technology has come a long way, so I need to update it and clean it up – nice to see my writing skills have gotten better with time!
And I’m working on a new book! About 50K into it – basically, imagine if Meghan had said No to Harry… and ten years later, they meet again, under tragic circumstances. It’s still in rough draft, but we’ll see where it leads to.
But right now I’m looking at being at Origins in a month! It’ll be my second year there outside of the Library and going as a pure gamer, so I’m going to have some great new game reviews in the future as the Wookie and I drive over with an empty car and come back stuffed to the rooftop with all sorts of games!
Chat at you later!
