March 2012 News

Hey all you John Carter fans (yes, all you pro movie critics can hang your head in shame), I've got some really cool stuff for you this month -- and some of it is even Carter related.

First up, I should mention that the print edition of The Crimson Collection just came out. All of you paperback fans should click here and buy it right now!

Next, at right, you'll see the cover illustration for my reprint of the original edition of A Princess of Mars. How do you get this gem, I hear you ask? Easy. It's free when you buy my real release for this month:

"Elf Princess on Mars"

You can read more about that below, as well as news on Frost Harrow, a peek at the next Crimson story, and a bunch of other stuff, too.

So astral-project yourself right in! Mars is waiting!

This Month's Feature -- ELF PRINCESS ON MARS

My sci-fi/fantasy mash-up, “Elf Princess on Mars” is out now! (Just in time for you John Carter & Dejah Thoris fans.)

EPoM tells the story of Faye, a young elf looking for love in all the wrong places. In this case, the place is Mars, or as the planet is known to its inhabitants, Barsoom.

The e-book is available in both a general audiences edition (with tame illustrations) for Kindle here at Amazon and for all e-book formats (including Kindle) here at Smashwords.

The story is also available in an Elf Erotica explicitly illustrated edition (with extra illos & nudity) here for Kindle at Amazon and here for all e-book formats (including Kindle) at Smashwords. Yes, the adult version costs a bit more, but it has a lot more illustrations — including the fully illustrated version of EPoM.

Plus, until some lawyer tells me to stop, each copy of the e-book comes with the complete original text of A Princess of Mars, with illustrations by yours truly.

So, pick your version and settle in for a fun-filled slightly off-color romp on Mars today!

Frost Harrow Update

Work on Frost Harrow this month was mostly writing game stuff and prepping to run my CHILL game for Gary Con (just past). I set the story, about a rain of frogs and a monstrous takeover, in Frosthaven.

To do that, I needed to take my ancient Frosthaven map and make it into something I could share with my players (and the rest of the world). The map is not "finished" for final publication, but it's certainly good enough to give everyone a look at.

So, here it is at right. Click here to go to my Facebook Page and see a larger version.

Verdict is still out on doing the Frost Harrow books as a Kickstarter project. Should I, or shouldn't I? Drop me a line and let me know what you think!
