I did not attend my planned signing in Calgary on Oct. 19th, because on the 14th I suffered a mild stroke. This was not the first I have had in recent years, all of which affected my left hand only—a phenomenon that has the neurologists beating their own heads against the walls. (After all the weird stuff my brain has turned out in the last thirty years, why should it stop now?) The latest one also impacted my leg and arm slightly, which justified hospitalization, so here I am, in the rehab section. I am happy to report that I am making very good progress, and expect to be released later this month. Meanwhile, both the second and third parts of “The Enchanter General” have been turned in to the publisher, and One Velvet Glove is even farther along the road—I have actually received my complimentary copies! I also have a couple of half-written books that I hope to complete before I sign off.

I began writing this book in September, 2011, and it ultimately turned out to be the start of a trilogy. It feels like a long time, but at last Durwin can limp out, onto the public stage. He's only an apprentice enchanter still. In BOOK TWO, he will return as a full qualified sage. Read more about him HERE.

It's not quite true that we never go anywhere! Janet and I will be visiting family in our old home town of Calgary, Alberta, this month, and I will be signing in Sentry Box on October 19th at 6pm.

King of Swords and Queen of Stars My "Starfolk" series will be featured on Amazon.com for the whole month of October at $1.60 each. If you enjoy minotaurs, talking sphynxes, unicorns, and hippogryffs, then this is up your alley. (Watch out for the centaurs, though. They're good guys, but they're not house-trained.)

I hate to see August leave without any posts, but I can solve that by mentioning that Ironfoot has received great reviews from both Kirkus Reviews and Publishers Weekly. Those are both well renowned and notoriously hard to please, friends! And so on into September, with Ironfoot itself ever closer to publication.
