DragonCon and Sales!
I'm leaving for DragonCon as we speak!
In honor of the convention, the Traveler's Gate Trilogy (the complete collection) is on sale on Kindle for $2.99 from September 1st through 5th!
I'm going to be here and there throughout the convention, but I'd like to meet you! If you're going to be in Atlanta this weekend, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll find a place and time to meet! I'm bringing books, cards, and (a small number of) shirts to sign! And, of course, I'm willing to sign whatever you bring me.
Especially sheared lambs. Those are my favorite things to sign...so supple. So smooth.

There were no survivors. The Wookies fell to the last child.

You promised news! Soon! Can we get a new soon? Maybe... a date? A date for news about the dates, we all want to know? That way we can mark our calendars for when to mark our calendars...

I have to ask... have you actually signed a sheared lamb?

Hey Will, I tried to bring in a lamb last year but they wouldn't let me. They said it was against the rules. I figured they were worried about potential lice problems, so i sheared and waxed it and brought it back, but they said that they couldn't allow any animals inside. So then i thought that maybe they would let me in if it was dead, since at that point it wasn't an animal, just a sack of meat. Besides, I could just use my necromantic powers to resurrect it later. So i chopped off the lambs head(The ritual to bring an animal back to life required a severed lambs head, and I haven't figured out a less gruesome requirement) and asked again. Unfortunately at that point they started screaming and calling the cops. Maybe they were PETA members? Anyways they didn't try to stop me as i made my way inside with the dripping sack of formerly living lamb meat over my shoulder, the severed head in one hand and the machete i used in the other. I needed an open area to do my ritual, so I wandered over to the middle of the convention and cast an expanding shield bubble spell that gently ejected everything inside a 12 foot circle. I started carving the runes into the floor, but i had to stop to cast a noise cancellation spell because of all the screaming. I mean everyone acted like they'd never seen a necromancer perform a resurrection ritual before. I placed the severed lamb's head in the middle of the ritual array and the body in another spot and began to cast my ritual I was almost done when i suddenly felt my shield spell break. It was so shocking that I stumbled over the last arcane phrase and mildly botched the ritual. You see, normally the goat head is just a catalyst and isn't consumed in the ritual, but my butchering of the last word of power caused the energies being channeled to fluctuate a bit, resulting in the lambs head exploding. This explosion startled the one who had broken my shield, a priest looking person holding a glowing sword and spouting off some nonsense about cleansing the world of m kind. He had just pissed me off and prevented me from bringing my favorite goat back to life, so while he was ranting i cast a quick flashing spell followed by a paralysis spell. Then, seeing as i still had all the power from the ritual and a goat body still in need of resurrection, I decided to use that priest-guy's head as a replacement for the one he made me destroy. I cut it off with my machete and stuck it onto the stump of the goats neck and finished the ritual. Unfortunately the stupid priests soul refused to go quietly and fought with the goat's soul, causing them to merge. The resurrected goat with a human head had a goat-human personality. That wasn't what i wanted at all, so I finally gave up on getting my pet back and decided to just do some damage control. A few spells later and nobody remembered anything of the last half hour or about that priest-guy. I didn't want to keep the new man-goat, but i didn't have the heart to kill it. So i bound it to the building i was in and cast a few spells that made it unnoticeable to the mortals before i left. Ive been too guilty over what happened to my pet that unfortunately i haven't returned as i am hunting down that priest-guy's organization.

You do know that a Lamb is a young Sheep and a Kid is the young of a Goat. It's not a mistake a necromancer of your abilities should be making. I mean no wonder some of your spells went awry, if you can't tell the difference between a goat and a sheep.

Yosef, heres a little advice. I didn't become a supreme necromancer by filling my head with such useless knowledge. I focus wholly on the arcane arts, and it is that dedication that has allowed me to gain the power to resurrect a dead baby sheep with the head of a priest.

OR, if you don't feel like going about things the traditional way, i have the contact runes for psionic demon that owes me a favor. I can get him to cast a knowledge sharing spell between the two of us in exchange for just 2^74,207,281 − 1 picoseconds of service to me.

Sorry but necromancy is not an area of magic I have a great deal of interest.

If necromancy is not to you're liking, we have a wide variety of skills, powers, and abilities for sale! Anything from the healing monastic chants of the monks of Shangri-La, the physical reinforcement powers of the Viking Berserkers, to even the writing powers of Will Wight himself!

Mortals, I have learned the hard way, tend to overreact to the most ridiculous things. This one time, I was rummaging through somebodies trash, and then-

THAT WAS YOU?!?!? I lost favorite pet when Carthage burned. Do you know how hard it is to get over the loss of a pet dracolich??? It had been with me for hundreds of years ever since I killed its mother, broke it out of its egg, the brought it to life.

You have found the Garden... where is it! I OBVIOUSLY have only 2 eyes, hehe, so an eye for the gardens location?

Kurt, did you not know of Garbagiel the Racoon? He was the first thief of Cradle, and singlehandedly cause the "Dragon Wrath" present in all dragons when you steal from them.

What can I say, Carthage had it coming. I needed Tyrian purple dye for my glorious raccoon-sized cloak, and they were overcharging. How else am I going to look affluent, powerful, and smell strongly of fish? My condolences about your pet, however. Romans legions are notoriously thorough. At least it was probably quick.
