Four for Three

Amazon has a four-for-three promotion, and the Pathfinder Tales novels are part of it. Perfect time to catch up on the line after sampling the free web fiction.

Pathfinder Web Fiction

Face it, you've seen that cute cat video so often its every frame is burned into your retina. Take a break and check out some of the nearly two score Pathfinder Tales stories available online.

Here you'll find some terrific fiction by Elaine Cunningham, Robin D. Laws, Howard Andrew Jones, Ed Greenwood, Amber E. Scott, Liane Merciel, Richard Ford, Robert E. Vardeman, Richard Lee Byers, Erik Mona, Monte Cook, Bill Ward, J.C. Hay, Kevin Andrew Murphy, James L. Sutter, and yours truly.

Reading those stories is free, although you can buy an ePub copy if you'd like to add some of them to your personal library. If you enjoy a story, the best way to support the line and the author is with a review. Even if you have read only the free version, please consider posting a rave on one of these product review pages.

If it's all the same to you, I suggest starting with those stories that have not yet received a review. And if you've a few more minutes of free time, please consider cross-posting a link to your review to spread the word.

More Writing, Less Blogging

I like to think it's a sign of great discipline that I haven't blogged so much since August, when I put my shoulder into finishing a few short projects and promoting Master of Devils. That's not quite over, with a pair of readings and a convention just around the corner, but with a couple of short stories and two longer projects in the works, I doubt that I'll be returning to weekly movie recommendations. I will try, however, to put up one or two in the month of November.

That said, I hope to post something, even briefly, once a week. In the meantime, I'm taking inspiration from fellow Alliterate Matt Forbeck's completely mad 12 for 12 project.

While producing the equivalent of six full-length novels in a year is too daunting for me, I was surprised to realize I'd written about three novels' worth of fiction last year. Thus, for the year beginning November 1, I'll shoot for a relatively modest 400,000 words of fiction. Unlike the fearless Matt Forbeck, I won't track my progress with an event; however, I'll likely post an occasional update here to keep myself honest over the next twelve months.

Pathfinder Takes New York

I mean to resume blogging about wuxia movies and other subjects once I catch up, although there will be a change in venue--about which more in a few weeks. Until then I'm up to my eyes in several writing projects and preparation for a few public events, one of which requires a bit of homework.

Until then, here's the pressing news:
