10 Years

April 12, 2004.

That was my first official day at work as Editorial Director for Prometheus Books's brand new science fiction and fantasy imprint Pyr.

It's been ten years today.

We're closing in on our 200th book.

What a privilege it has been! 7 consecutive nominations for the Best Editor Hugo. 6 nominations for the Best Art Director Chesley. One win in each of those categories.

And the joy of working with the most talented writers and artists in the world, many of whom are dear friends now.

Ten years today.

I don't know that I ever imagined we'd get there.

Or maybe I always knew.

Thank you to everyone who made this possible. It's been an honor.

I wonder what the next ten years has in store.

Frostborn Audiobook Narrator

I am very happy to announce that the wonderful Fabio Tassone will be narrating the audiobook of my forthcoming novel, Frostborn (Thrones and Bones). Fabio, who appeared as the Duke of N├íjera in The Tudors, is fluent in four languages and can do a very wide range of accents and character voices brilliantly. 

To date, I've had two conversations with my audiobook producer and one with my audiobook director, and I am just over the moon (and utterly convinced that Frostborn is being handled by three very capable pairs of hands). I'm so excited to see the results.

Frostborn will be released from Random House's Crown Books for Young Readers on August 5, 2014 in hardcover, ebook, audio download, and audio CD.  

More information at http://www.thronesandbones.com/ (currently pointing to the book page at Random House Kids but a dedicated website is forthcoming). Also, please check out the Frostborn page at Goodreads.
