True... That?

Have you ever wondered about the truth? I mean, seriously? Beyond the scope of asking what the definition of 'is' is?
Truth is generally not my stock in trade, as I get to fabricate reality in The Blademage Saga. However, lately I've been forced to think about it quite a bit more than usual.
My part-time consulting gig has been picking up, and I've been working with the overly-talented James Eicher, a previously published author, on his upcoming eBook, Ecology of Truth.
Lacking the multiple degrees Mr. Eicher possesses, and just a bit intimidated at his vocabulary (that almost never happens), I have come to appreciate the complexity and wit in the subject matter whilst formatting it for its August Kindle release. After the first formatting run-through, I mentioned to James that the depth of the material reminded me both of Joseph Campbell's The Power of Myth, and Gary Zukav's The Dancing Wu Li Masters. This seemed to please him.
Anyway, he's a great guy, and a former Micron alum like myself. Instead of leaking Fantasy like my brain does, James has arranged thoughts on Ecology, Ontology, Epistemology, and a few more -ologies in a concise, deep, but lighthearted romp through religion, politics, and ultimately, the truth.
I'll be adding James and his book to the 'Friends of The Blademage Saga' section soon, and hope to have him relaunch my semi-regular interview feature sometime later this month or early next month.

Griffin and Bear it.

Things are still going slower than we'd like, but are taking off as we swing into the summer schedule.

Blademage Adept (Yes! It has a title!) Is about 50% done, and picking up steam. Aaaaand there are going to be griffins. Yay! No bears, those are so two books ago.

Print and audio for Apprentice Swordceror are still forthcoming (soon).

Give Me a Break.

Taxes paid. Ouch. Check is in the mail for the Audio down payment. Feeling the crunch, both temporally and financially. But good news! Apprentice Swordceror is on sale for the next week! Whether you're pinching pennies thanks to Uncle Sam, or have a refund burning a hole in your pocket, it's a great time to download Volume 1 of The Blademage Saga. On either side of the pond! Amazon .com and .uk!


Happy reading!

Full Speed Ahead!

Audio contracts in place, Jamie du Pont MacKenzie has been engaged to produce the first two volumes of 'The Blademage Saga'! I'll check first for permission, but will likely post links to his auditions here soon.

Print on 'Apprentice' is very close. Just a few checks to go through, and we can upload and request proofs. It would be serendipitous if it hit the same time as the audio.

I've started consulting in the Kindle formatting space, should complete my first job next month. Still kicking around the idea of other consulting avenues.

In the words of the Lego Movie, everything... well, you know.
