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!
