First, here's my Worldcon Schedule! I'm packed (mostly) and ready to go! I'll mostly be on the road today, but I'm taking my laptop with me because, of course, I need to keep the contest going while I'm there. I'll try to keep people apprised of all of the antics and activities of your favorite authors while I'm there. I'm going to take a camera as well, but if past experience is any indication, not many pictures will get taken. I'll be too busy having fun!

Small update on the novel and short story: I managed to cut the short story down to 6997 words, so I'm under the 7000 words limit. Sort of. I sent the short story in by email, and actually forced myself to go to the post office and mail the revisions to Shattering the Ley. So all project that had deadlines are out the door. I'm hoping to generate a few more projects while in Worldcon, so it's not just all fun and games, just mostly fun and games. *grin*


And now, the on-going contest!

The winner for Wednesday is [ profile] amguynes! Congrats! Get in touch with me here on LJ in a message or email me at with the address I should mail the book to and a name if you want me to personalize it. Otherwise I'll just send a signed copy.

For everyone else, there's still 5 days left! I will be giving away a first edition signed hardcover of The Skewed Throne, one per day, for the next five days. The drawing will be done at random based on the comments received on that day's LJ entry. So if you enter today, you're in the drawing for today only; you have to come back tomorrow and enter again for a chance to win in the drawing tomorrow; then come back again for the next day, etc. You have to comment on that day's LJ post to enter for that day, so if you stop on by and I haven't had a chance to put up the post for that day yet, you'll have to come back when it's up to enter. You can enter as many days out of the 10 as you wish, even if you win on one of the days (if you win multiple copies, or already have a copy of the book, I assume you have some friends you can give the book to, or perhaps you can donate it to your local library, etc).

This contest is to celebrate finishing the revisions of the new book Well of Sorrows, coming out in May 2010 in trade paperback, AND to celebrate the release of Die Assassine, the German version of The Skewed Throne, which will hit the shelves on August 11th in Germany. Here's the incredible cover:

So if you're in Germany or can read German, RUSH--I say again RUSH--out and buy Die Assassine! Once it's out of course. (It is available for preorder on the German, along with book 2, "Die Regentin," to be released in January 2010.) And please, please tell all of your friends about it, since it's going to be impossible for me to do many signings and other stuff to promote it in Germany. Especially since I can't speak or read German very well.

And there you go! Enter the contest (just comment!) every day for the next 5 days, and buy my German book!

That is all. Carry on.
