Monster Hunter Nation

Updates from the writing world

Who wants a Hold The Pig Steady shirt?  Here is the Cabbage Point Killing Machine official world tour shirt.  Yes, you too can be part of heavy metal history.  Check them out.

Toni from Baen contacted me the other day. The manuscript with her revisions for Monster Hunter Vendetta is on the way to me. She had a few things that she thought needed some work, but it isn’t going to be anything too hard to fix. As usual, her comments were spot on, and made me think to myself, “why didn’t I think of that the first time?”  But that’s why she runs a major publishing house an gets paid the big bucks.   MHV is still on track to be out in Fall of 2010.

Mike just finished the rough of his half of Dead Six. He’s going through and editing now. We’ll get those two bits edited together and get it submitted. It is awesome.  

Meanwhile, I’m still working on Monster Hunter Alpha. It is coming along. 

Monster Hunter International is still selling well.  For some reason Barnes & Noble has decided that for January MHI is to go back on the New Paperback display in every store.  That is awesome placement.  Plus, I just got my first copies from the 3rd printing of MHI.  They say 1st Baen Printing, August 2009. 3rd Baen Printing, December 2009.  Not too shabby!

I will be at Life, The Universe, & Everything sci-fi/fantasy writing conference at BYU on February 12th & 13th.  If you are in Utah, you should try to catch this one, because nearly every published writer in Utah shows up, and Utah has a lot of writers. I had a lot of fun last year, (despite the shocking lack of caffeinated Coke in the food court).

There is an Authorpalooza event at the Sandy B&N sometime in February.  I found out about it from my friend, Paul Genesse (Iron Dragon series).  I don’t remember what day it is, but I’ll post it here.
