I am all set up at Gen Con 2019 in Indianapolis, with all three Mariko Takashi books available for sale. If you’re at the show, stop by my booth in the Authors’ Avenue in the Exhibitor Hall to pick up a personalized copy of Mariko, and even see the complete pages for the abandoned Mariko Takashi manga. Say hi and you can see me writing the fourth Mariko book at the booth (if you’re interested in that sort of thing).
We are in the home stretch for getting the third book of Mariko Takashi to the bookstores. This was due to be done in October, but there was an extreme delay, due to real life issues, with the interior art being done in a timely fashion. These illustrations are nearly complete, then the book gets laid out, sent to the cover designer, then off to the printer and the details sent to bookstore for pre-orders.
Soon, Mariko Takashi and the Case of the Living Dinosaur, will be available!
I will be attending Gen Con 51, in early August. I will be there as an author, and right now it looks like I will only have the first three Mariko Takashi books available at this show. The fourth book may not be available until late August at the rate things are happening.
I look forward to seeing everyone there.
The wonderful guys at TANSTAAFL Press are sold out of the first edition of the Gremlin Horde. I am working on the next edition and reprint, but things are extremely busy around here. I am juggling the first three books alone.
Watch this site for more information regarding the next books.
My good pals at TANSTAAFL Press, who picked up my old Dark Elf Ninja series for a complete reprinting, also have the last remaining copies of Mariko Takashi and the Case of the Gremlin Horde first printing books for sale. There are fewer than 100 available, after an incredible sale at Gen Con 50 this year, so if you wanted a first printing, this is the only time you’ll be able to nab one.
I am also shipping them plenty of bookplates, signed by my wife, the internal illustrator, and myself, the author, so in case you never get to meet up with me when you have the book, you can still have an autographed copy.
Pick one up before they’re gone, and if you wish, let them know that Christopher sent you.
I will be attending Gen Con 50 in Indianapolis as an author in the Author’s Avenue. I will have available the first edition of Mariko Takashi and the Case of the Gremlin Horde, as well as some free bookmarks promoting this entry in my new series. Stop by, say hi, and if you are there on Thursday this year, I will have a special reduced price on the book for the early birds only.
I’ve been extremely busy with multiple projects for the past few years, and have not been attentive to my personal websites. Even though I build software to generate large-scale communities, I have not been too keen on putting in the hours after my normal job to setup a website that would be fully interactive and easy to update. For now, I’ve stuck with a WordPress site, with minimal content, just to have something on the web again.
It will have to do until either my writing career really takes off, or I tackle writing software to maintain a writer’s website myself.
