Empire of Salt in Waves


Lots of Empire of Salt news.

We had a book signing in Flagstaff. Lots of new fans showed up.

We also had a book signing in Sierra Vista, Arizona. The store had 20 copies and I think we sold 13 of them, along with a handful of my other work. Lots of folks coming in from goth teens, to weird tweens to octogenarians who wanted to talk politics, but I convinced instead to buy a book. here's a picture of me and the original FOW (Friend of Wes).

Paul Kane has also made me Guest Writer at Shadow Writer UK. There's a never before seen excerpt from Empire of Salt posted. Meet Abigail. Meet Trudy. Meet the zombie.

Last news to report is the box of books I received today. My first box of author copies from a mass market publisher. I got all squishy inside. It was really a great feeling. Or can't you tell by the shi*t-eating grin on my face. :)

Nevertheless, there I am.

So please, if you haven't ordered a copy yet, get one from your favorite bookstore. If for some insane reason they don't have it in stock, please ask them to order a copy for you.

You all rock! ""Devil Horns""
