Selling Mariko books to help with medical costs

Due to some medical bills that are piling up and I’d prefer to get them knocked down before they become overwhelming, I’m offering the chance for people to order personalized copies of the Mariko Takashi books, autographed by both the author and interior artist.

Unless you see us at conventions or track us down individually, you won’t be able to get both of our signatures together in your books! This is a chance to get them at retail (plus tax and shipping) and help out with some bills that we need to take care of.

Note that any orders with the third book will need to wait until after the beginning of August to ship for the supplies to be refilled after Gen Con.


If you live in the USA, here are the buttons to use to order the books. Please only use the button corresponding to the book or books that you wish to purchase. International orders will be cancelled. If you wish to help out and do not have a US address, feel free to purchase from your favorite local or online bookstore.

Home Stretch for Mariko Takashi 3

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!

Gen Con 51

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.

Mariko Takashi is sold out from TANSTAAFL Press

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.

Mariko Takashi and the Case of the Gremlin Horde First Printing Books Available

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.

Gen Con 50

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.

A new home, for now

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.
