Fabulous Prizes!

Saturday, 30. April 2011 11:57

So cool!

Winona Nelson has sent the Bloodforged prints that I will be giving away as prizes in the Bloodforged art and mini contest, and here they are, with the book on the side to show the scale. They are beautiful, high quality prints on heavy paper, and are signed by Winona and myself.

Man, I almost want to keep one for me!

Bloodforged Contest!

Tuesday, 5. April 2011 10:49

To celebrate the upcoming release of the second Ulrika book, Bloodforged, I have decided to hold a double contest. Here’s how it works. I am looking for the best Ulrika artwork and best Ulrika miniature conversion, and I will be giving out cool prizes to the winners and runners up in both categories.

Both art and miniatures should represent Ulrika, armed and dangerous, as described in Bloodborn or Bloodforged and shown on the covers. There should be no nudity or excessive violence (this is a family show) but the rest is at your discretion.

The contest will run from now until Monday, May 30th 2011, and I will announce the winners a week later on Monday, June 6th, which is right between the US and UK Bloodforged release dates.

I reserve the right to post all entries, whether winners or losers, on my blog, but make no guarantees that I will show any of them. Enter at your own risk.

Here are the details for each contest:

Art Contest

The medium can be anything you want, pen, pencil, paint, digital, even sculpture or photography. It can be a pin-up, portrait, action scene, comic story, etc. Whatever you want, as long as it features Ulrika. Please DO NOT send original works. Send jpgs of the work to my gmail address and make sure they’re not too big. 700×450 pixels is about right. The decision of the judges (me) is final.

Miniature Contest

The medium is a standard 28mm miniature figure, converted and painted to look like Ulrika. If you want to go nuts and make a diorama, be my guest, but a single figure will be fine. As with the art contest, DO NOT send the actual miniatures. Send jpgs of the finished pieces to my gmail address and make sure they’re not too big. 700×450 pixels is about right. The decision of the judges (me) is final.

Prizes

Prizes for both contests are as follows:

First Prize is a signed copy of Bloodforged PLUS a print of the Bloodforged cover art signed by me and the artist, Winona Nelson.

Two runners up will each receive a signed copy of Bloodforged.

There you go. Any questions, send an e-mail. Good luck and get started. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

And no, Winona, you can’t enter….

Bloodforged: Now it can be Shown!

Thursday, 19. August 2010 7:20

Last week Black Library posted the cover of Bloodforged, the sequel to my first Ulrika the Vampire novel, Bloodborn, so I guess that means I can post it now too. Beautiful, isn’t it? I think Winona Nelson did an even better job on this one than she did on the first one, and the first one is fantastic. I can’t wait to see what she does for Bloodsworn, the third in the series.

Gamesday Baltimore!

Tuesday, 17. August 2010 7:23

I will be attending Games Workshop’s big convention, GAMESDAY BALTIMORE, on Aug 21st, and signing all day. I’ll also be doing a q+a and reading from Bloodforged, the sequel to Bloodborn, from 11:45 to 12:45. Come by if you’re in the area and hang out. It’ll be an author battle royal all day, with me, Dan Abnett, Gav Thorpe, C.L. Werner and Mike Lee in a steel cage fighting to see who is top of the Black Library heap.

Don’t tell anyone, but I’m going to break the rules and use a folding chair. What else would you expect from a blackheart?

Bloodborn Reading and Q+A

Wednesday, 26. May 2010 9:40

Black Library have posted a four part promo video I did in which I read from Bloodborn, my latest book, and then answered some questions about the book. The four parts are kind of hard to find on you tube. For some reason they don’t all show up on the same page, so here they all are, collected together for your viewing pleasure.

Enjoy.

Bloodborn World Tour

Tuesday, 4. May 2010 11:12

Later this month I will embark on a two day, two city, two store signing tour for Bloodborn, my next Warhammer book from Black Library. These two stores will be the only places in the US where you’ll be able to get a copy of Bloodborn before the official June release, so come on down and be the first one on your block.

On Saturday, May 22nd at 2pm I will be signing at Emerald Knights Comics and Games in Burbank. The store is huge – two floors! – and packed with cool stuff, so I’ll make sure to wear something bright so you can find me. Emerald Knights is at:

4116 W. Burbank Blvd.
Burbank, CA 91505
818-588-3631
Website

And on Sunday, May 23rd I will be driving down to San Diego to sign at Mysterious Galaxy, also at 2pm. I am sharing the bill with Christopher Farnsworth who will be signing his book, Blood Oath. We’re calling the event Bloodbath, and I will be facing Chris in a no holds barred steel cage match – winner gets to sign the other guy’s books. Mysterious Galaxy is at:

7051 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.
Suite #302
San Diego, CA 92111
858-268-4747
Website

So if you’re in the LA or San Diego area, please come by and say hello. It would be great to see you all!
