SHADOW OF THE VOID (and a small announcement)

You know what’s fun? Going on adventures and not being able to tell you about them yet. But maybe in a few months, I WILL HAVE SO MANY PICTURES from adventuring and after this weekend (fingers crossed) HOPEFULLY THE BITCHINGEST STORY TO TELL EVER. In the meantime, you’ll have to be content with some updates about things and other stuff happening in the life of Lexie.

First off: if you’re in the Phoenix area next weekend, you’ll have a chance to see yours truly in person. I’m headed to Phoenix Comicon, which I’m attending as an excuse to see my friend Lucky. I’ll be on several panels with lots of authors way more famous than I am, and all of the information about where I’ll be is located on my News page. It’s subject to change, so I’ll make sure to tweet out a full schedule beforehand.

After Phoenix, I’m hoping to stay in St. Louis for at LEAST six weeks because I’ll be working on edits and amping up for HOW TO SAVE THE WORLD, which will be out in September. Also having many secret adventures. Things are happening in my mild-mannered alter-ego’s world that might make travel difficult, so this might be a summer for buckling in and focusing on home-based projects.

One really cool thing happening today is that my friend Nathan Garrison’s book SHADOW OF THE VOID is available and just waiting for your eager fingers to mark up the e-pages. Here’s a bit about it:

With comparisons to N.K. Jemisin, Michael J. Sullivan, and Joe Abercrombie, readers have fallen in love with The Veiled Empire, the first book in The Sundered Worlds trilogy. Now, Nathan Garrison takes the story to the next level Shadow of the Void.

The Veil has fallen . . . and the gods have been woken.

For many, a new dawn has risen, as freedom from the tyrannical Emperor Rekaj has created a land replete with opportunities. But for those who had lived outside the Veil for generations, the sudden appearance of a new nation is not cause for celebration--it is the cause for war.

Yet, even as the political machinations of men and mierothi and valynkar start to manifest on a global scale, there are a few playing their own games. Whether it's the powerful combination of Vashodia and Jasside trying to carve out a country for those freed from the Veil, or the warrior Mevon and assassin Draevenus forming an unlikely alliance in search of the dark god Ruul, the world is in chaos...which might be exactly what some are counting on.

Continuing where Veiled Empire left off, Shadow of the Void shows us how individuals can shape their own destinies, but not necessarily control them.

Anyway, Nathan’s pretty awesome (he plays guitar and loves bacon, which I feel has a giant crossover with several of you) and he’s celebrating a new book out today and that’s always terrifying and exhilarating. So go say hi, check out his work, tell him Lexie sent you1. I hope to see at least some of you in Phoenix (I almost typed Paris there, THAT WOULD BE AMAZING) and someday I shall share all about my wild adventures! But alas, not today.

Until then, stay sexy!

1Bonus points if you somehow make that sound REALLY ominous.
