This has been the busiest November ever–and it’s not done yet!
The first weekend in November, I attended what is quite possibly the best Blizzcon to date. They debuted a new IP, “Overwatch,” which looks fantastic; showed a partial trailer for the upcoming “Warcraft” movie, and kicked enthusiasm up even higher for the launch of Warlords of Draenor.
I barely got home in time to say Happy Birthday to Assassin’s Creed: Unity: Abstergo Employee Handbook on November 11. Wow! Insight Editions has done it again. This book is amazing. You, the reader, are the new Templar agent who has been tapped to finish out an assignment your predecessor failed to complete: Arno Dorian, Assassin, active during the French Revolution. You will peruse files complete with sticky notes, lavish illustrations, and notes written by Dorian himself. But you’d better be successful, because “termination” at this corporation has a double meaning. You can purchase it from Amazon.com here: http://www.amazon.com/Assassins-Creed-Unity-Abstergo-Entertainment/dp/1608874036/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1416511090&sr=8-1&keywords=abstergo+employee+handbook
I had so much fun writing this–and Arno Dorian is a wonderful character. I hope my readers will find this is a great companion piece to the game!
Time flew, and Warlords of Draenor came out. Wow…or WoW…that’s a whole blog post in and of itself. I love it.
Another Tuesday rolled around: November 18, when I got to announce a second book birthday–The Accidental Knight, a tie-in to Cryptozoic’s HEX online card game. The book was a stretch goal on a wildly successful Kickstarter and I had a blast writing in a new world. Almost all of the characters you’ll meet are my creations, with a few cameos from already established characters in the game. New cards featuring some of them will be available in Set 2, for those of you who want to know! How cool to see my characters realized in art form. Currently the book is only available as an e-book, but there are plans for a print edition. You can be sure I’ll let you know! Till then, you can get the book at Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Accidental-Knight-Christie-Golden-ebook/dp/B00PMC2LEO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1416511806&sr=8-1&keywords=Accidental+knight , on iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/the-accidental-knight/id941942782?ls=1&mt=11, and for Nook at http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-accidental-knight-christie-golden/1120798191?ean=2940150446922 .
There was something else…some other birthday…hm…oh yeah, mine, tomorrow. I feel like I’ve already gotten two presents!
