Hey there everyone.
I know y’all are waiting for news. I’m mostly over my cold, the internet is working in my house again, and almost halfway caught up on my e-mail (which is pretty good for me.)
Here’s the problem, right now I’m not officially authorized (heh) to share everything I want to share with you.
As a result, I’m holding off on my news post until I can give you a big ton of sparkly details and lurid details all at once.
For the nonce, we have some other news, and a completely different shiny thing that’s showed up on my radar.
I’m going to be down in Chicago for C2E2 next week.
Friday, April 25 to Sunday, April 27
South Building at McCormic Place
2233 South Martin L. King Drive
Chicago, IL 60616
My schedule is relatively light, but it looks pretty awesome:
Friday, April 25:
3-4pm: Spotlight on Patrick Rothfuss, S403
4:15-6:15: After-panel Signing, Table 1
Saturday, April 26:
1:30-2:30pm: GEEK GEEK REVOLUTION game show, S403, with Mark Frost, Kevin Hearne, Seth Fishman and Lydia Kang, and moderated by John Scalzi.
I’ll be doing a signing at a local bookstore too, for those of you who aren’t big convention goers. The lovely folks at the Seminary Co-Op Bookstores set it up for me, and it’ll be hosted at the University of Chicago.
Monday, April 28, 6pm
International House at the University of Chicago
1414 E 59th St
Chicago, Illinois 60637
Hope to see some of you down there. I don’t know when I’ll be back in that neck of the woods again.
A while back, a fan named Glen tipped me off about something cool they submitted on the Lego website:
If this becomes a thing, Glen is going to get a cut of the action for having the great idea and design. Even cooler, Glen has offered to give half of that cut to Worldbuilders.
Why doesn’t it specifically say they’re Edema Ruh from the Kingkiller world? Because Glen is smart. First, he didn’t want to step on my intellectual property, which I appreciate. Second, because Lego has fairly stringent standards regarding overall family-friendliness of their sets. So not only would licensing be a Huge Legal Thing. But my books have some content that would probably red flag the whole deal.
I’m no Joe Abercrombie or anything, but I’m still fairly gritty.
Guess who these handsome devils are? Yeah. You don’t have to guess too hard. I like how he made it so my Wizard’s Staff has a Knob on the End.
If you’d like this to be a thing, you can Vote Over Here.
And even if you don’t care much for voting, you should probably check out the website, anyway. Cool stuff.
