Default Avalon Chronicles - Publisher: Oni Press

I am very excited to announce that part one of the Avalon Chronicles will be released this very month from Oni Press! Together with writers Nunzio Defilippis and Christina Weir, I am very chuffed that the book will soon be out in the world, in pretty hard cover format, no less! Already available for pre-order from bookshops and online.

You just can't stay way from those fantasy dragon stories can you

Looks promising, shall be picking it up. Just finished re-reading Dragon Heir recently, we need some more of that someday too!

hehe, it is quite funny how well Avalon fits my M.O, but I think it was Dragon Heir that helped the writers to consider me...so maybe it makes perfect sense, haha ^_^

Thanks so much, hon. And yes, I'm so aware that we need Dragon Heir to get back on track! Believe me, it's not forgotten

Hi all! the lovely Neo Magazine have included a preview of book one in their current issue, so you can check it out there ^_^ And I'll be bringing copies of the book itself along to - oooh - about a million shows

Squee! I didn't even know this was out! Good things I'm going to Waterstone's today anyway, here's hoping they'll have it! I've been looking forward to this for ages, and then completely missed it coming out - that's what happens when you disappear head first into work I guess.

Bought it, read it, loved it! Sweet, funny, and a little sad... Can't wait for the sequel! Will has to be my favourite out of the lot of them - he's like a bishy Shakespeare! The only thing I wished had been different in the whole book was this: I wish the lines from his political play could've rhymed. Maybe in iambic pentameter. When did you say book 2 is coming out again?

weee, thank you SO much, Hunter and Morag! *hug* Hunter, haha, Wil is coming out as a favourite so far, it seems!

Second book 'should' be out early next year, I think

And if anyone picked a copy of book one up at expo, let me know your thoughts!
