To discover the Frost Giants’ evil plans, our heroes must ascend the treacherous ice-covered mountain known as ‘Cold Crag’ and confront its guardian, a short-tempered white dragon eager to destroy any who dare invade her sanctuary. We don’t call it 'Dungeons & Dragons’ for nothing, y'know! • Dungeons & Dragons is seeing a renaissance with the release of the fifth edition rules in late 2014. Hundreds of thousands of players are returning to D&D or embarking on their first adventures and they’re hungry for extra content. • This new D&D story ties into the Storm King’s Thunder event that runs across multiple RPG products, novels, and video games. • This series continues with the cast from the hit Legends of Baldur’s Gate and Shadows of the Vampire stories, but is also built as a perfect jumping on point for new readers, bringing them into D&D’s classic blend of sword & sorcery adventure.
So, 2016 was a really weird year for me, because, let’s be real, it was a fucking nightmare. Except, for me, my career finally took off in a really big way…and so it was this weird combo of worst ever and best ever.
I also moved to Portland from NYC, which was huge. I’d wanted to leave after NYC for a very long time and get back to the West Coast…so that was huge in so many ways.
Anyway, here’s my annual writing run down. I really wish I’d been able to finish Storykiller 2 and run the Kickstarter for it, but I’m optimistic about it for early 2017. And other than that failure, this year was a huge success as far as writing goes.
And that’s largely thanks to all of you. So thank you to all you amazing readers. I hope I made you happy (and also sometimes sad) and I hope I can continue to do that for you. I really appreciate all your support!
