    Introduce yourself

    Hey all,
    I'm so very excited that sffworld has given me my very own place in the "Official Author forum". I was saying to the moderator when he sent me the email that I, "fell like a real boy."

    For those stopping by, I'd love to know a little about you. Whether you've read any of my books, never heard of me, or are just curious.

    So...come on in, sit on down, and introduce yourself.

    Well, hello there!

    I haven't read your works, and am generally curious. I'm also a bit of a flake, so you may never see me again.

    Hi Jon! I have read Shadow's Son and have Shadow's Lure on my Kindle waiting for me to finish GRRM's dragon tome.

    Anywho...glad to see you here, Sullivan. I did read a few of your writing-tips posts. Very informative. Thanks for sharing.

    Wave Jon - nice to see you. I enjoyed Shadow's Son - we should talk sometime about some cross promotion

    What are you working on now?

    Well I hope that's not the case (you not coming back...not the flake part...well okay maybe both).

    Glad the writing tips were helpful. If you want to try out my stuff for free check out THe Viscount and the Witch it's a very short read (15 - 30 mins) and is pretty indicitive of the larger Riyria series.

    Very nice of you to say. But really I'm just a newbie who has had some initial success and hope to be "worthy" of comments like that some day.

    I'd like that (cross-promotion).

    Right now I'm starting work on a new series. A bit more epic than the Shadow saga.

    This is cool, didn't notice until now Mr. Sullivan has his own little section. Love the series, would recommend it to pretty much anyone.

    And a question- when will Percepliquis be available from Ridan? Hopefully soon. Very much looking forward to it, and to rounding out my signed collection.

    Yeah, I'm really happy to have my own area here at sffworld - makes me feel like "a real boy." Glad you love the series and recommend to others - it is only through word-of-mouth that any books "make it."

    We actually have a shipment of books sitting in the dining room - just waiting. Official date is 1/16/2012 but if Heir of Novron hits the street before that we'll launch as soon as it is available. We can't completely time this...both Theft of Swords and Rise of Empire hit the bookstores early. Orbit wants the books to be "out there" pretty much simultaneously...they had the good idea of moving Percepliquis to mid-month and Heir remains "officially" end of month - so short answer....1/16/2012...longer answer - as soon as Heir starts showing up in bookstores. We'll keep you posted by a post here on the forum.

    Well...thanks for the support! I'm always writing something new

    Since finishing The Riyria Revelations I've actually written two books, resurrected a third, and am working on a fourth. By the terms of my contract I can't "release" anything until six months after the release of the last book (this is not an uncommon as publishers donít want competition for the work they just put out).

    The next book that will probably hit the streets is Antithesis. Here is what I currently have as the ďback of the bookĒ blurb.

    Have you ever wondered about how the world would end?

    No, well donít sweat it, most donít and those that do figure it will come about due to a dramatic change in climate, a widespread disease, or war. Thatís what weíve been taught to believe and our brains are always eager for a rational explanation, but our minds werenít always so logical. There was a time when people believed in myths and magic, but in todayís scientific age what canít be proved doesnít exist.

    I was the same way until I met Winston Stewart. That was the day I learned to believe in much more than I could seeónot the least of which is fate. Fate is an amazing thing. It put Gandhi in South Africa, Nelson at Gibraltar, Newton under the apple tree, and Winston Stewart on that train in Alexandria Virginia. You donít know who Winston Stewart is? You will.

    Hey all! I just want to say, if you're reading Mike's books, don't drink anything when you're reading them because things like cranberry juice goes everywhere!

    "It's my first day." -- Oy.
