Signing at Wonderkahn!

Wondercon is this weekend, and if you’ll be there, you can find me signing at the Lion Forge booth, 401, from 2-3pm on Saturday.  Allegedly, I will be signing preview PRINT copies of magical girl comic Crystal Cadets.  But this could be just an ugly rumor.  Here is my only clue:

Will there be preview copies? If you’re feeling adventurous, come join me at 2pm on Saturday and find out.

It’s out! Crystal Cadets #6! But will it come to print?

It’s out! The latest issue of Crystal Cadets splits the team in two, as they must hold off Emmy’s attack at a fun fair while cleverly bringing home the next cadet. But will the girls, still trying to figure out their powers, make a mess of it? The answer may surprise you! Forgive me for sounding like a “news at 11″ broadcast ;) There are only 2 more issues left, so get on board!

If you’re not convinced, check out an extended preview of this issue over at the Roar Comics Tumblr.

If you haven’t heard, IDW will be print publishing many of Lion Forge’s comics, including some Roar Comics titles in June. It’s not official that they will be collecting and publishing Crystal Cadets, but I bet the more digital orders we get, the better the chances are of getting to hold the collected print edition in your hot little hands (or big, cold hands, as the case may be).  So get in there, tell your friends, tell your wife, tell your friend’s wife, and spread the word!

Crystal Cadets 6 is available for Kindle and DRM-free at the Lion Forge site.

Trail of the Scorpion launch and RPGnet chat tonight!

Rockets! Mars! Adventures! Get the inside scoop about what goes on in writing a pen & paper RPG adventure tonight, 5pm PST, at RPGnet.  This Q&A chat heralds the launch of Rocket Age: Trail of the Scorpion, a book offering a series of adventures for your Rocket Age characters.  I wrote A Prince’s Ransom, another more stand-alone adventure, earlier this year. Join Rocket Age line developer Ken Spencer, myself, and other writers of the Rocket Age adventures for a chat on making pulp science fiction a thing of the present.

Rocket Age: Trail of the Scorpion is a 6-adventure module that just launched, available in PDF or in print.  The Trail sends your heroes from Venus, to Earth, on to Mars, Ganymede, and finally to the moons of Saturn. Along the way they will discover and fight the machinations of the mysterious Red Scorpion crime syndicate and its shadowy leader. Hop on board for puzzles to solve, battles to win, chases, betrayals, and high adventure!

I wrote the fourth episode of this adventure series:

Sting of the Scorpion – Something bad is happening on Ganymede, and our heroes are sent to investigate. Their search for clues leads them from a Jovian Spaceways pleasure cruise, through the forests of Ganymede, and deep into the mysterious and dangerous black fog. What will they find inside, and what does this mean for the peace and security of all the planets in the Solar System?

Anne Toole takes us to Ganymede and entangles our heroes in a gripping, almost Bond-movie like ending. Good thing I wore a tux under my flight suit.” – Ken

Join us tonight, December 18th, at 5pm PST at RPGnet and pick up your Trial of the Scorpion PDF while you’re there!
