My agent has told me I'm allowed to go ahead and make this announcement. Finally.

DAW will be buying two more of my quirky fantasy novels!!!

The first is GOBLIN WAR, the third and final (for now) book in my goblin series. I've just turned in the rough manuscript, and we're going to be pushing to get this one out in March of 2008. This means I'll probably be doing some frantic revisions, but I'm okay with that if it means we get the book out sooner.

DAW also bought THE STEPSISTER SCHEME, which I'm hoping will be the first in a series of butt-kicking princess tales. That one will probably hit the shelves in 2008/2009.

In the meantime, I'm also freaking out because my second goblin book, GOBLIN HERO, comes out in just a few weeks. (Thus the new avatar & sig file :) )

All in all, it's been an exciting month!

Thanks, all. I've been awfully happy with DAW so far, and I'm delighted that they have enough faith in me to pick up another two books!

Hooray! I commented on my blog a few months ago that you were an author we should keep our eye on. *Sigh* I love being right.:)

I am way excited for you!!!

Big grin. I hope you enjoy it!



Congrats Jim! That is really awesome! And I love butt-kicking princesses!


Me too. I like my princess stuff even more than the goblins, honestly. I'm especially fond of Talia (my interpretation of Sleeping Beauty.) You know the bit where River in Firefly says "I can kill you with my mind"? Talia's kind of like that, only she'll kill you with a spoon, instead :)


Hooray! I commented on my blog a few months ago that you were an author we should keep our eye on. *Sigh* I love being right.

Okay, now you're just trying to make me blush!

That's great news, Jim.

*Hangs Head in Shame*

I still haven't gotten around to the blog book review of Goblin Quest. I did manage to loan the book to my dad and he really enjoyed it. So we will probably be reading Goblin Hero, too.

If you're reading and enjoying, I'm happy. If you do find the time to post a review, that's frosting on the cake :)
