Most triumphantly! And therefore, of course, also roar:
You knew this was coming. Hope you covered your ears.
I have not one but two triumphs to celebrate, and they are T. rex-mighty ones indeed!
1. Yesterday I paid off the mortgage on my house, which I bought in 1987.
2. I just a handful of minutes ago sent off the proposal for a brand-new novel – the proposed first volume of a Dieselpunk trilogy – called The Diesel Magi, to my Super-Agent, Kay McCauley, at the request of my editor at Tor, Claire Eddy.
And I am stoked.
And it’s pretty sweet!
Visit scenic Nuevaropa, where you can get gored and eaten by armored dinosaurs. In the rain!
They don’t call this world “Paradise” for nothin’!
Illustrator Joe Stansbury just posted this on Twitter today. He’s a professional illustrator – you can see more of his work by clicking his name riight there. But he’s kindly chosen to do some excellent fan art for The Dinosaur Lords!
You can see a full-size version of the image, which he describes as a “mock cover,” by clicking on the small version above. Or here. It depicts my protagonist, Voyvod Karyl Bogomirskiy, mounted on his beloved Allosaurus Shiraa, leading his famed White River Legion of war-Triceratops to the attack across the River Hassling, at the opening Battle of Gunters Moll.
Thanks, Joe! I really appreciate it.
But not preserved in amber. Instead, they’re preserved on Kindle!
Insert obligatory RAWR!!1! here.
Yes, I and a raptor-pack of other authors have just dropped The Jurassic Chronicles, a bundle of dinosaur tales, on Kindle. It’s a big bundle, too, featuring stories not just by me, but by writers people have actually heard of, like Laxmi Hariharan and Seanan McGuire, and edited by Samuel Peralta! And they’re only 99¢ a pop*! So why not buy?
That’s a limited-time offer right there, so if you want this steamin’ chunk o’ tasty dino for a buck, you’d best get on it. You can do so by clicking on the image above, or any of a the innumerable other links I’ve scattered around this post!
