Happy Book Day: Forged in Fire comes out in Trade Paperback

I know Forged in Fire has been out a year in hardback, but I also know some people are waiting around for a better price point. Well, those of you who’ve waited, wait no more. Today, Forged in Fire comes out in Trade paperback. I know my local Barnes & Noble has signed copies if you are so inclined. I’ll be at the University Bookstore on the Ave in Seattle tomorrow night, Wednesday, July 24th at 7pm if you’d like to get one personalized.

Of course, you can always get the hard back if you want, those are still around. The reading and signing tomorrow night should be especially great because I’m not the main course. :) There’s this new kid in town, J.M. Sidorova is releasing her first novel: The Age of Ice from Scribner.

And then, on Thursday, I travel down to Portland with a car full of writers to go to the Cascade Writers Workshop where I’ll be surrounded by very cool people including my agent: Cameron McClure and my editor: Claire Eddy from Tor.

Busy week, busy weekend coming. But all writerly goodness.

Hope to see you folks out and about.
