Wow, it’s been a LONG time since I posted!

It’s been a very busy year for me!  I moved back to Virginia, where I grew up, in January–right, of course, when they were having terrible snow.  Go me!

I’ve had two books come out this year already, and two more are due out before December 31. Plus, I have rereleases of FOUR other books. I think this may be some kind of record, and I couldn’t be more excited!

I hit two big milestones this year.  First, I’ll be celebrating 25 years as a published fiction writer come September.  And secondly, in November, I will see my 50th novel hit the shelves.  When did all this happen?

That 50th book is also the third book I’ve done set in the world of Assassin’s Creed.  Unlike the (very cool!) coffee table books from Insight Editions, “Blackbeard’s Journal” and the “Abstergo Employee Handbook,” this is a full-length novel, and (as it’s Assassin’s Creed) it’s a historical to boot.

Here’s what Amazon has to say about it thus far, and here’s a handy-dandy link if you’d like to preorder:  https://www.amazon.com/Assassins-Creed-Heresy-Christie-Golden/dp/1945210028

“From New York Times bestselling author Christie Golden comes an original story set in the universe of Assassin’s Creed.  Reliving the memories of his ancestor who fought beside Joan of Arc, high-ranking Templar Simon Hathaway slowly uncovers secrets of the past that could dangerously impact his present…and that of the entire Templar order.

An endless conflict.  An old wrong.  A new revelation.  

Simon Hathaway, member of the Templar Inner Sanctum, brings a cool head and detached manner to his new role as Head of Abstergo Industry’s Historical Research Division.

But Simon also has an insatiable curiosity, and is fascinated by the thought of experiencing history first-hand through his ancestor–Gabriel Laxart, who fought alongside the legendary Joan of Arc.

When he enters the newly-designed Animus for its initial project, Simon finds himself unprepared for what he discovers: How deep the conflict between the Templars and the Assassins goes. What Gabriel will do for the woman he both loves and reveres.

And the most dangerous truth of all: Who is the heretic…and who is the true believer.”

Can’t say much more than that, but we’ll be revealing the cover at Salt Lake City Comiccon!  Here’s my schedule, and if you can’t make it to any of the panels, my “Home Base” will be the WordFire Press booth, #1501.  I’ll be signing and selling books there and look forward to meeting folks!

It has been unforgivably long since I last made a blog post, so allow me to hang my head in shame.  Especially as this year is shaping up to be one of the busiest on record!  I just finished a major editing project and am about to finish an outline for a new book.  By the end of this month I’ll (I hope) have written a new short story and be well into the aforementioned new book.

Can I talk about any of these things?

Not yet.  But!  I am excited to appear in Memphis, TN next weekend for my Guest of Honor appearance at MidSouthCon! I have attended before, and it’s a very friendly convention with an awful lot of fun things going on.  I’ll be on a ton of panels (see below) and doing books signings throughout.  Feel free to bring your own copies to get a signature and personalization, or I will be selling a variety of titles at the con if you forget/see something you like!

Here’s the skinny:

From the convention website:  “MidSouthCon 34 will be held at the East Memphis Hilton on March 18 – 20th, 2016. We have a great lineup of guests this year, with all kinds of events, panels, and entertainment for your enjoyment! With over 200 hours of programming, we will probably have a discussion or workshop that will interest you. Gamers – as usual we will have gaming of all sorts – Board, Card, RPG, LARP, and more!

Convention Membership online Registration has closed. You can register at the door for $55 for the whole weekend. Day rates are avaialbe. Just ask at the door or e-mail registration@midsouthcon.org.

Sorry all…PR is becoming a full-time job for me and since my actual full-time job is writing books, that’s not good!  I’ll try to post some thoughts and pics from ComicCon.

Star Wars Book # 2913-B

From my website:

“After a thousand-mile journey, Our Writer Heroine has reached her new home!  But things are missing…where are the scissors?  The cat’s medication?  That really yummy thing she saved to treat herself to when she arrived?

And the Ball (okay, SDCC) was not far away…and the deadline loomed.  Yet she had promised…she had promised…and she keeps her promises.”

Yep, despite the chaos of moving, the shop is OPEN FOR BUSINESS!  With a few caveats:

*Yes, things are crazy, so bear with me as I rediscover what boxes hold what books, and where the heck I put my mailing envelopes.

*Star Wars: Dark Disciple is NOT going to be shipped until the publication date of 7/7/14 (I’d get in big trouble otherwise). If you really must read it the day it is released (and I love you for that), please order online at a site which will make sure it arrives on the 7th or reserve a copy at your local bookstore.  Also, it may time for the books to arrive to me, as they don’t ship to me until pub date, either!  So I appreciate your patience.

*All this being said, I do still have other books for sale, and through the fall will be re-ramping as I get more in stock.

*Please remember, this is a side business for me, and honoring my writing commitments must always come first.  I thank you in advance for your patience with me!

My readers are the best.  Welcome back!
