Cool Changes...

I got the email from Amazon this morning. No pre-order yet though
I see a pre-order option. But only the hardcover, since the ebook isn't listed at all as far as I can see. There is the hidden ebook page., but that doesn't show anything yet.

This WAS from the US site, though... I can never keep track of who is in another country unless they list it.

Oh I definitely don't have an issue with character development, I just like to see it happen in a positive direction!

Although I had lost a lot of interest in the book by that point, I would have been a lot more forgiving if Kara hadn't slept with her teacher. I like a main character with integrity.
I'm looking forward to your thoughts on the new book.

So far I've read 9 chapters and I'm enjoying it.

Cool ConNooga and WyrdCon 2014

Quoted from jim-butcher.com
Quote:
Jan 07, 2014 - ConNooga and WyrdCon 2014

We can add two more events to Jim’s 2014 schedule!

First, Jim will be heading to Chatanooga next month for Con Nooga! Con Nooga is located at the Historical Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel and Chattanooga Convention Center, and will take place February 21st through 23rd.

Historical Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel
1400 Market Street
Chattanooga, TN 37402

Chatanooga Convention Center
1150 Carter St
Chattanooga, TN 37402

Additionally, Jim had such a great time at WyrdCon last year, he’s returning for this year’s madness!

WyrdCon 2014
May 22nd–26th, 2014
The Westin Los Angeles Airport
5400 West Century Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90045
(310) 216-5858

Read about the various membership levels and buy your pass through their Kickstarter.

Jim will be doing two panels accessible to all WyrdCon attendees (and webcast for everyone who pledges to their Kickstarter), plus a Master Class for the most serious writers. Jim’s LARP situation is still TBA, but I expect WyrdCon will keep folks updated on that score!

In case you missed our prior announcement, Jim will also be touring through Australia during most of April. A full list of Jim’s 2014 con dates is available on the forum! We should have news of Jim’s Skin Game signing tour in the next few months.

I am hoping he will hop over the water to Europe and the Netherlands, but considering only 4 books were translated, I do not have high hopes...

Skin Game release date countdown:

A little late, since it was Shabbos and I couldn't post.

I will post an update in a few hours, too.



I'm actually surprised at you, Lea, for not beating me to it.

Anyway, I was just reading about you -- I just finished Bombshells, and it was pretty awesome!

Spoiler:
I always wondered just what Molly could've done for the svartalves, that they owed her so much.
