All the cool kids are posting theirs, so here’s mine.

Cymera Festival & Other News

I’m off to Cymera this weekend. I’ll be on one panel, talking about fantasy cities with Darius Hinks and Cat Hellison. It’s my first time at a non-gaming convention in…a very, very long time, so it’ll be an experience. The Gutter Prayer has gone for a third print run in the UK, which is lovely. The Shadow Saint is in copy-editing. And after that… well, there may be news in a few weeks, if all goes well.
