On my way to DragonCon, right now!
The only real panel I'm looking forward to today is Jim Butcher's steampunk thing at 5:30, but let me know if I'm missing out on something cool.
Oh, also: The Crimson Vault sold over a thousand copies yesterday.
In case you were wondering, that's a lot.
You guys are the best! Thanks for buying, thanks for reading, thanks for leaving reviews on Amazon, and thanks for telling your friends. Right now, Crimson Vault is the #1 best-selling Epic Fantasy book on Kindle, the #1 best-selling Epic Fantasy book on Amazon as a whole, the #1 best-selling Sword & Sorcery book on Kindle...
You know what? I'm not going to bore you with that. It's high. And it's all because of you guys, so thanks!
You should reward yourselves by reading a good book. I recommend Blood Song.
An interview with me just went live over here, so apparently it went up at the same time as Crimson Vault.
This was not planned, but it worked out.
Check out the article for some largely fabricated answers and the worst picture of me in all existence!
Here's the story behind the picture: I had a horrible cold, but I couldn't find a picture of me that fit the magazine's requirements for the story. So I had to take a picture with my iPhone, even though my face is all red and puffy.
I swear I don't normally look like that.
...normally it's even worse.
Speaking of which, Crimson Vault has somehow sold almost a hundred copies. How did you do that, guys? How? Amazon still says it's not published.
Apparently, The Crimson Vault is now available for purchase here.
Are you confused? Do you remember what I said about Amazon not approving it until tonight?
Yeah, that makes two of us.
Amazon said it would take another 12 hours, and then they decided to put it up in 1 hour. So you can buy and download it now, it's just that parts of the page aren't working.
Amazon's still telling me it's in the process of being uploaded, but the book is definitely available for purchase. I just bought it.
...I didn't get to sleep. They put it up so quickly that I only got, at most, an hour of sleep.
I'm so tired.
I have officially submitted The Crimson Vault to Amazon.
It is now "in review" by Amazon staff, and should be available for sale tonight.
...assuming nothing goes wrong.
Of course, I slept not at all this past night, and now I'm off to DragonCon in Atlanta. Which means I may not really experience the con, I may just sleep all weekend.
Well, it'll be a good time either way.
EDIT: Apparently a partial page is up on Amazon here. You can buy it, but apparently details like the preview aren't fully up yet.
This is out of my control. It's in Amazon's cold, clammy hands.
So, apparently I'm the Fantasy Writer of the Day over on r/fantasy. I guess somebody signed me up a few weeks ago, and now I'm supposed to do an AMA today.
If you guys wanted to hop on over to Reddit and ask me questions, the link is here. I realize that you can and do ask me anything in the comments section of this blog, but if you wanted to drop on by and leave me a question or two, why, that would be stupendous.
If you're Reddit-ignorant, that's okay! A reddit.com account is free. Make one. Then go to this link and ask me questions. AMA stands for Ask Me Anything, so that's what you get to do.
Yeah, you thought I was going to say "That's okay! Ask me questions here instead of on Reddit!"
But no. Take that, expectations.
